Apparently I am below average. Lower than 86% of females in the U.S. and lower than 56% in the world. I am most like someone from Indonesia. I am 5’3 and 120lbs.

I did my husband too, for fun! He is lower than 50% of males in the U.S. and above 90% of males in the world. He is most like someone from the U.S. He is 6’0 and about 200lbs of sexy.

This is the worst day. I have just been told I’m from North Korea 🙁

Doesn’t beloved leader starve his people? Perhaps I need to eat a bowl of spaghetti…

@Artificial-Sweetener:  My actual medical BMI is 18 as well. Although people are calling bullshit on this, skinny people like me that have barely any muscle get more accurate results. I’m not surprised, I’ve been called anorexic since I was a child.

@Rachel631:  Oh, please. The same ladies that tell us how lucky we are are the same ones telling people we are bulimic behind our backs. I don’t eat everything I want, but I’ve never been on a diet. I just make healthy choices and sometimes I don’t. There is a huge movement in the US to bash thin women, and tell us we aren’t real women because we don’t have curves. We aren’t lucky, and we don’t escape ridicule either.

I calculated what I would have been last year when I was at my heaviest ever — which, according to the BMI scale made me officially overweight.

Anyway, that put me into Germany which is so interesting because that is my ancestoral background!  Go figure.  I always was proud of my “sturdy german engineering”.

“If everyone in the world had the same BMI as you, it would remove 8,160,228 tonnes from the total weight of the world’s population.” 

 

Whoa.

Nice. I’m lower BMI than 85% in my country and 67% of the world. I’m similar to an Ethiopian. Reminds me of Starvin’ Marvin from Soith Park haha!

And the world would lose 44 MILLION tonnes of weight if they had the same BMI. Holy.

@MissFemmeFatale:  You don’t need to store pounds for it to affect your BMI.

@Hyperventilate:  Show me some evidence to back up this belief. How does a pound or less of feces significantly impact your body mass index?
