How to tell if a Crestie is thin?

How do you tell if your Crested Gecko is too thin or too fat? It seems they all have the same general "chubby" look to them no matter what, though I have little experience with them.

In some other species (such as Uromastyx) you look at the pelvic region for this information. Bony... too thin; plump... just right. Is it the same in Cresties? I ask because my female adult seems to have a bonier pelvic bone region than my male. She weighs 40 grams (with tail), which I hear is average... but I just want to know whether I need to take action regarding this.

I tried to check the calcium sacs in her mouth, but only was able to get a quick glance. Definitely noticeable, but not sure of how big they are supposed to be anyway.

They are both being fed Clark's Gecko diet.

Appreciate any information you have!
