You are more muscle than fat, but everybody floats. Hold your breath and grab your knees. You'll bob on the surface. When I took lifeguarding there was a swimmer from the swim team in our class. We all had to learn how to "float."

When he "floated," literally just his mouth and nose stayed above the water, but he didn't sink!

Body density. Fat floats, muscle sinks. There are other forms of floating which are life saving.

Overweigh people float because fat floats. So your not fat. If you want you can float on your back. Just keep breathing normally and lean back

Because you're not doing it right. Stick your pelvis up, head back & relax.
