Hey! Don't assume that if someone weighs 150 pounds, that she/he "probably wouldn't even be on this page. Most people are here to lose weight, meaning they most likely weigh a lot more than 150 lbs. " On what grounds, exactly, can you make that assumption?
NOT that it's any of your business, but some of us at 150 pounds have 30-35 pounds to go.... and we need this site just as much as you do because we don't WANT to "weigh a lot more than 150 lbs" or be any heavier than we already are.
And, by the way, what "average" means is that if you add up the weights of all the people in a given sample, and divide by the number of people in the sample, the resulting number is the "average" weight of that group. It does not mean that the majority of people are at that "average" weight -- in fact, it's possible that none of them may be. For example: If I take six of my students' test scores, of whom 2 got A on the test, 2 got F, and one each got a B and a D, and I add all their scores together and divide by the six students, the "average" grade will be C even though none of them actually got a C on the test.
