    5 foot 4 and almost 9 stone? That's about a perfect weight, actually. If you feel you have too much fat you might want to recomp a little.

    No way! You are absolutely fine. I am a similar height and weight. You shouldn't compare yourself to others. Your weight and height is usually down to genetics and your metabolic rate. If you're fit and healthy you have no reason to lose weight. I am sure you're fine how you are. Please don't stress about it

    I'm about an inch and a stone taller and heavier than you.

    If you feel that you have slightly too much fat (remember, you do need some fat) then you might try to lose that and gain muscle in its place, as muscle is generally more aesthetically pleasing and I assume that's what you're going for.
