When I started back in January I discovered I was an Avocado but since my weight loss and inches over the past few months I am now staying at a Pear.

Oh man- I'm an avocado :P I guess that makes sense- I've always measured the widest part of my hips, which is not the widest part of my butt because, well frankly I don't have much of a butt. Following these instructions, I measured around the butt & ended up 1 inch smaller than my hip measurement... However, I'm not so sure how this applies when you're slender. For instance, I plugged in my measurements from college- 32 inch waist & 36.5 inch hips- gave me a .89 ratio, whereas now I'm a .83 with 7 added inches on my waist and 11 more inches around the hips... I really don't think my risk is going to go up as I lose weight :(

I am an apple and often refer to myself as a "pumpkin on stilts". I am not offended by potbelly or any other derogatory term used to describe me. They are all true and to quote my best friend's late father, "The truth you can say."

I am a pear. To all you apples, I also have a pot belly, it's just that my hips and butt are even bigger than my stomach. The thing is to lose weight. I have to do that to reduce the heart, cancer and diabetes risks. I am going to start today by eating an apple, pear and 1/2 avocado. that will help me reach my 5 fruits and veggies a day challenge.

I am an Apple and do not like the term Pot Belly as well and fell depressed by this but plan to make this go away. I will never be a pear have no hips and thin legs but that does not mean you are always a Apple. But what happens if you are none of these because I do not understand these at times. I hate being stereo typed.

Proud to say I'm an avocado! Didn't even know this existed. Avocadoes (sp?) are full of healthy MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) and can shrink belly fat. Loving it!

Dear fellow apples:

If you read the definitions afterwards and also saw the word "pot belly" and feel offended, depressed or angry, feel free to add me as a SparkBuddy so we can privately (and in my case, with much vulgarity) commiserate, I'm totally here for you, Sisters!

Before joining SparkPeople I thought I was an "apple" but I found out that I was an "avocado" shaped person. I didn't even know there was an avocado shaped person. I used the SP "Waist-to-Hip Ratio" Calculator to find this out! Then I went to their article to find out about the Avocado shape. Here is the link to the article.
