@Rachel631: lol!  for me it’s diet and genetics. I need to start working out because right now I am in bad shape, but I eat pretty well- only tea and water, very rarely juice or alcohol. A soda maybeee once every couple of months.

For lunch today I had some blueberries, almond milk, and a little bit of meat. like maybe 1oz. Then I had some special k (.5 cup?) with 1% milk as a snack.

As for genetics, all the women on my mom’s side have DDs and are a size 2-6. Even my grandma. No one on that side of the family eats fast food.

Haha how strange….

I have a lower BMI than 95% of females aged 15-29 in your country (US)

I have a lower BMI than 82% of females aged 15-29 in the world

I’m most like someone from Vietnam.

Apparently I’m most like someone from Ethiopia!  LOL!

BMI = 20, less than 92% of my age bracket in my country (US), less than 74% of my age bracket in the world.  

I haven’t had kids though, and I bet a lot of women in my age bracket (30-44 – I”m only 30!) have.

@Rachel631:  Mine is ALL genetics. I am unbelievably lucky. I am very athletic and work out a lot, but I have terrible eating habits. My mom always says I eat like a 400 pound man lol! I know I’m super lucky, but I know my metabolism will eventually catch up to me and I won’t be so lucky anymore. I’m only 25, so I figure I have a few years left!

Its depressing and encouraging at the same time. Its nice that I have a BMI lower than most in the US but sad that I’m so much higher than the rest of the world. 

  • You have a lower BMI than 54% of females aged 15-29 in your country (US)
  • You have a higher BMI than 85% of females aged 15-29 in the world
  • You’re most like someone from Bahamas

LOL BMI is such crap. 23? and 25 is considered overweight? Yeah, not even close. However, being like someone from Ireland makes me smile.

@LilliePad:  I definitely thought that the US was going to be higher up on the list.
