    Surely most of us are aware of whether we need to lose a few pounds or not by looking in the mirror?

    I’ve gone from exactly in the middle of the normal band to a bit below the middle of normal.

    Fry up for brekkie tomorrow then 😀

    still crap, I’m overweight somehow, as I exercise I predict my weight will either remain stable or creep up a little (as it normally does) making me a right porker. Or proving that BMI is not an individual measurement and that people could put a little more effort in.

    Woohoo! I just went from ‘obese’ to ‘overweight’. I can celebrate, can’t I?

    Have a cake.

    I’m not sure we really need BMI to know if we’re in good health or not do we? Surely people can tell how much fat is too much? Even if they don’t admit it/do anything about it…
    The state this country’s got itself into is shocking. Being of sensible weight now puts you in a minority.
    And we’re nowhere near having to deal with the full costs of it yet either… if anything’s going to wreck the NHS it’s people’s inability to look after themselves…

    A lot of people do. The number is ammo doctors can use against people in denial, I suspect.

    This. I can live with that.

    it’s still wrong dimensionally, should be cube of height!

    Plan for this year, become ‘overweight’ through training and muscle mass, not cake and pies
