    Just being a bit random and nosy, but what age did people reach puberty at?

    I was almost 20 and I think I was insanely late, but probably because of doing gymnastics.

    I mean I was very small for my age. i'm only 4 11 now but I was a lot less thick then as well. And doing gymnastics kept me light.

    A bit, but not much since I was still the smallest in my year group haha, and still a child mentally. But, I gained quite a bit of weight from going through puberty and because I had a binge eating problem, so I was a bit upset.

    Broad shoulders are good, you'll have less of a droopy look when you're older.

    Somewhere between 8 and 10. I was definitely a decent amount earlier than my friends. I didn't bother me all that much though
