    I voted but it didn’t count my vote and now I can’t vote again =(

    Mine is over 30.. well over. I know I am obese and don’t need numbers telling me so. 😛

    Well, it keeps yelling at me for typing in 5’0″ in the height section (I guess I have no height!) so I went down to 4’11” and it gave me 21.7. 

    I really don’t trust BMI, though. It’s kind of a shot in the dark compared to fat measurements, scans, etc.

    Even though my BMI is 19.3, and thus on the smaller side, I don’t like using BMI to judge my healthiness because I know I am out of shape and flabby right now :/ A month ago I was so toned but then I got sick and the new semester started and my eating habits/exercise cycle got thrown off. It was supposed to start again today but I’ve been running a fever all day!!

    Funny side note: I’m 5’0, but the website won’t let you enter “0” for inches so I have to put 4’12. Way to make me feel even shorter haha :p

    @cbgg: there are more advanced BMI calculators out there on the internets that take into account gender, body frame, activity level, etc. I don’t know how medically accurate they are but I feel like they are more accurate for me because I have such a small body frame.

    It says I’m in a healthy weight range, but I want to lose 30 more lbs. Silly body. :p

    Dammit I am just over 30 by 0.2 🙁

    I knew that thought, because my Wii fit told me. That being said, I have managed to come down from being 33.2 3 months ago which is exciting! I never ever knew I was obsese until I did my BMI, which was kinda depressing. I don’t look obsese to look at as I am average height and seemingly average weight.

    obese is a medical term for someone who is above their suggested body weight range. unfortunately because of the media obese tends to be perceived as someone who is insanely overweight :/
