Right now I am 5’4″ and 132.4lbs and I live in Tennessee.

 

I think it will be interesting to see the results of this too

just shy of 5’7″, 110lb. Massachusetts. My BMI will tell you I’m underweight–I’m fine. I’ve been the same size since the 7th grade no matter what I do… my doctor and I are both over it 🙂

5’0, 126lb, BMI a little over 25. Need to lose some serious weight…

As I’ve posted before, BMI does not always equate to dress size, and certainly not to overall bealth. That sad, I have various skeletal problems which improve as my BMI drops, regardless of whether I am losing fat, water, or muscle.

EDIT: At my largest, I thought I was 147, but I later found out that my scales were faulty, so it would have been more like 157. At that point, my doctor told me that I needed to lose at least 40lb, and that I should aim for a BMI of 18-19 if I wanted my joints to improve.

@nikix:  I forgot to put I’m in the suburbs of Washington, DC.

And that’s why I don’t put a lot of stock in BMI, or even weight for that matter, or even dress/pants size. I’m healthy and very comfortable with my body (curvy and hourglass-y) and that is what is important Laughing

@nikix:  are those averages just for women though?
