In brief: Good genes.

Lucky you - you got some good genetics from your parents.
If you keep trying, though, you can overcome your good genetics, gain weight, get high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Even the best genes cannot fight a bad lifestyle forever.

In brief: You are lucky

- we have some understanding why some gain weight/get high BP (genes, lifestyle) but not completely.
You are lucky, but it is also possible that things will change with time.
