I am a woman, my wrists are so large that most bracelets or watches, will not fit me, even when I was underweight for my height and bone
There is very little flesh on my wrists, and a weight clinic took calibers to measure my bones and said I was large boned, actually they were very
surprised at how big my bones were.
I have a friend who is much taller than me, so I assumed she was large boned too. One day she was talking about her weight and I was explaining the
big bones issue on weight, and how to tell if one has large bones.
So she stuck out her wrist and said, "Tell me if I have large bones. " I could not believe how thin her bones were. Her wrist was all flesh. She
weighed more than me at the time.
It was not long after that, she stepped across a small ditch, she did not fall, but she broke her ankle, the dr. said it was because of her weight on
such thin bones. He said, he did not believe she had gotten enough calcium in her diet as a child and was supposed to have had larger bones, he based
this on her height and her parents bone structure.
So actually ones weight can affect their bones and thin bones can not usually support a really overweight person.
Also one should realize that bone structure affects one weight, I am five foot eight and have large bones, my normal weight should be around 150-160
