BODY MASS INDEX

"Does this body make me look fat?"

I've been living in a dreamstate called 'Denial' for many years now.  Oh, I've always acknowleged that I have a weight issue, but I never researched it to see just how bad off I was until recently.  According to one researcher, I was .03 over the line that separated the over-weight from the obese.  I was legally obese!  How could I be obese?  Obese is someone who is really overweight.  Well duh!  According to just about every medical report, I am really overweight for my age and height .

But... I knew if I looked hard enough I would find a way to get me out of the category of obesity.  No, it wasn't some new fad diet or miracle pill.  It was another report! 

According to this calculator from Halls MD I am not obese, just merely 'overweight'.  If you have been avoiding BMI (body mass index) calculators like the plague, check this one out.  I don't know how accurate it is but it sure makes me feel like I'm wearing 4 sizes smaller!

LOL.. you are a dear! (luckily not a "mule deer")... as i sit here munching M&M's no less, i did your calculator lol.. too funny.. it says I am "normal", which would be the wrong answer LOL... a good answer.. but wrong lol.  Though I am not "way overweight", there's no doubt that big sweats feel so much more comfortable on me then do clothes that are larger then i wore only a few years ago lol..

You get a gold star though for finding a site that would tell us what we like!

Ya know , everywhere you look someone is complaining about people being overweight. I say pass me the chocolate. If you feel good with your self then everyone's opinion doesn't matter.
