You probably won't settle into your natural "walk around weight" until around 23 to 25. Enjoy it while you can. Before you know it, you'll have the adverse problem because your metabolism takes a nosedive at around 25. What most younger people don't know is that it takes around 1800 to 2000 calories a day just to maintain your body temperature when you are in your teens.

Don't worry about being a little skinny or lanky at this point. Before you know it that will not be the case.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
