He thinks you are lardy at 8 and a half stone?

pudding25 Tue 19-Jul-11 18:15:42

Your husband deserves to be told to fuck off. You are v slim. In my teens, I was 8 st at 5ft 6 and looked far too thin.

Paschaelina Tue 19-Jul-11 18:16:00

I must be a right heiffer then at 5'6 and 10.5st...

Don't know how I manage to squeeze myself into those size 10-12s

bibbitybobbityhat Tue 19-Jul-11 18:16:34

5 ft 2, somewhere over 11 stone I guess. I am fat, but then again your husband is an idiot.

shock your DH have a problem.

PGTip Tue 19-Jul-11 18:17:22

Omg I'm the same height as you and wish I was 8 & half stone!!

chickydoo Tue 19-Jul-11 18:17:58

I think I'm ok, so will have a nice slice of cake....Lardy...he's a cheeky sod!
Pudding25, I will tell him to F off.

I'm 5'7 also and 10st. A bit more than I'm comfortable with, although people consider me slim. I reckon I'm about right at 9st2-4.
If I go below 9st I look positively cadaverous.

LeMousquetaireAnonyme Tue 19-Jul-11 18:19:17

I am 5'8" and 10 stones, I used to be your weight for many years though and was a size 4 (definitely skinny may too much).

Ephiny Tue 19-Jul-11 18:20:09

I think it's very unlikely you're 'lardy' at that weight and height. Do you actually want to know the height and weight of random strangers on the internet, or is this about your relationship and your husband's attitude to your weight?

I'm 5'2" and a little over 8st if you really want to know!

HettyAmaretti Tue 19-Jul-11 18:20:30

5ft 7ins & 8 stone 7lbs. Your husband says you're "a bit lardy with a bum"?

This rings alarm bells for me.

I'm 5'2" and when I weigh 8 stone 7lbs I'm skinny. People ask if I'm unwell, although TBH it is the weight I like myself at best. Am now 8 13, DP says it's the perfect weight for me. Mind you he says that when I'm any where between 8 1/2 and 9 1/2 stone.

Pixieonabroomstick Tue 19-Jul-11 18:23:03

Im 5,1 and 6st 7. Im v skinny same as the rest of my family. You sound pretty thin too , tell your husband to sod off and have a nice slice of cake. I recomend lemon drizzle.

Ben10isthespawnofthedevil Tue 19-Jul-11 18:23:06

5 foot 7 and 10 stone 3. Size 10 top. 12-14 bottom. I am not fat.

Elibean Tue 19-Jul-11 18:23:15

5'4" and 8st 12lbs - but I am 50, which makes a difference. I'm small framed, too - so can't carry much more weight without feeling it unpleasantly.

That said, at 8st 7lbs - your weight, and 3" shorter than you - I was too thin and looked scrawny. Even ten years ago. I didn't think so at the time, but I look at photos now and its obvious!

Find some choice insults to lob back at your husband, and listen to your friends smile

chickydoo Tue 19-Jul-11 18:24:31

Maybe he is just being grumpy! he (Mr Chickydoo) could do with loosing some paunch.....but actually I don't mind, I rather like it. I guess I'm not as toned as I used to be, but hell who cares.....Me thinks I need to have words with him indoors!

Elsjas Tue 19-Jul-11 18:27:01

5ft 4in and 7 stone 9 lbs. I'm always being told that I'm too thin but have always been about the same weight and don't diet. There's no way you can be lardy at your weight and height. Just ignore him.

HettyAmaretti Tue 19-Jul-11 18:28:23

Yes. Words. Strong ones.

Maybe he does mean un-toned rather than 'too big' but random comments about the 'failings' of your body are not on. Constructive criticism when asked for it is one thing, uncalled for nasty comment are another kettle of fish wink.

WinkyWinkola Tue 19-Jul-11 18:29:59

6' and 14 stOne 2 pounds. 7 lbs over weight.

jenniec79 Tue 19-Jul-11 18:30:06


You're right at the low end of the healthy range - BMI 18.6 (normal 18.5-25)

If you feel unfit, then toning up exercise wouldn't be a problem but you sure as heck aren't fat!

And tell him the quickest way you have to lose 12 stone of useless lard....HIBVVVU.

HettyAmaretti Tue 19-Jul-11 18:30:21

FFS. I no idea what has happened to me. I'm usually capable of stringing a normal sentence together....

MadHairMoody Tue 19-Jul-11 18:32:09

Can't believe he talks to you like that sad

I'm your height and 10 st 4lb atm, but dh always says he fancies me whatever weight I am. You sound v slim tbh.

TheOriginalFAB Tue 19-Jul-11 18:33:15

RoyalWelsh Tue 19-Jul-11 18:34:33
