Of course we are all different, but I would imagine that if someone was around the 5 foot mark then 70kg would probably - in most circumstances - be overweight for them.
It's been proven that people treat overweight people differently, there have been countless social experiments. It's not surprising you're being treated better, I have no reasons why it's the society we live in and what society aspires to (and being thin and healthy is a very common aspiration for people)
yes, at my heaviest I was 82kg and at my lightest 52kg and I get treated far better when thinner, even just people saying hi in the streets, or sales assistants running to help etc.
Diamond eyes - wow that is amazing, well done!!! I hope you are very proud of yourself.
At my heaviest I was 75kg and 173 cm tall, size 14. I dont look like other people look like at a size 14. I looked like a size 16 and pregnant. I dont gain weight on my boobs, thighs or butt. I gain it on my arms, face and stomach...far far far from pretty. The only way I look good is when Im skinny around 55-60kg. (size 8-10)
Its just the way my body is, I have to watch everything I eat, one false move and I pay the price.
So I can see why people thought I was huge. But of course another person might be a size 14 and look amazing. Just depends on your body type.
And weight is not always an indicator of health. I used to go to a gym with a lady who was short and stocky, to most she looked over weight but my gosh that women could run anyone under the table. I was skinny and an hour on the treadmill had me curling in the corner ready to die while she was still powering on like a trooper. Now she was fit! Even though she may have not looked like it.
