Jade plant leaf is growing downward

My Jade plant seems to be healthy, with shiny and juicy leaves. But the problem is that the leaves tend to grow downward. The closer to the bottom, the leaves are bigger, thicker and more downwarding. The top leaves are thin and flat, which are beautiful. I don't know why it is like that. Is it because the plant is overfertilized and the bottom leaves grow to be too big and heavy and can not hold themselves? Thanks for your help.

Maybe not enough sun or the plant is rootbound and needs repotting. Here's some helpful growing info.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
