Fat Guy Update VII

Yesterday I was looking up the definition of obesity and came across a Body Mass Index (BMI) calculator. I am 5'10" and my starting weight was 212.6, giving me a BMI of 30.4. Obesity is defined as a BMI over 30. Dang it! Who (besides the mirror) knew I was obese?

The last time I stepped on the scale I weighed 204.4 lbs (I've lost 8.2 lbs since starting the contest) making my current BMI 29.3. That makes me only overweight! Only 30 more lbs until I'm normal weight!

If it'll make you feel better, I went to the doctor last week and had a BMI that I thought was too high, but the doctor said if you were very athletic at a younger age, all the muscle is still there so it adds weight, and your BMI will always come up high because of the muscle weight...even though you're not overweight or obese =)
