What’s your BMI?

Nov 16, 2021, 6:04 AM

I’ve gone from high end of “overweight” 29, to low end “overweight” 26.

scooter‘s mentioning of fat kids got me thinking more on a topic I was already interested in.

Any other fatties here with me?

I was at 240 a few years ago, but was working out ALL the time, and barely eating due to stress.

I looked great from that perspective but felt like crap.

But you were exactly the type of person I had in mind. Good shape and very active and still overweight by the metrics. I’d classify you as normal and not scrawny or fat, just Greenr.

It just doesn’t seem like the most accurate metric overall health

BMI is a terrible measure of health. It should definitely not be a measure for large athletic people. At my best shape, I was 220lbs with an average body fat of 4.1 % (we won't talk about what it is now). But per BMI, I would have been over weight pushing obese.

BMI is sort of a joke. Some folks with a low BMI are flabby while others at the same height and weight are muscular and carrying very little fat.

So technically overweight. But I fit into 32x34 jeans and a medium shirt. And just ran 4 miles this morning at an 8:15 pace, so there's that...

Highest BMI - somewhere around 45 (back before I decided to stop being a fat kid.

lowest BMI - 21.6. But at 157 lb. I looked like I was recovering from some terminal illness. It was not a good look on me.

Had the moobs and everything for it.

Got tired of not being able to keep up with a 3 or 4 year old in the back yard. Went hard calorie restriction then started running because I like calories :)

Travel now is the only thing keeping me where I am. If I weren't on the road every other week I'd probably drive myself back down to ~170-175.
