2010: A Year-In Review and Happy Tears

Friday, December 31, 2010

emoticon Here are the stats:

January 2010 Measurements (1-4-10)
Weight 163.5lbs
Pants Size 13
Shirt Size Large-XL
Waist 34.0”
Hips 40.5”
Chest 40.5”
Neck 13.5”
Biceps 12.5”
Calves 15.25”
Thighs 24.5”
BMI 27.25 (overweight)

BMI is between 25 and 29.9 (Overweight)
People falling in this BMI range are considered overweight and would benefit from finding healthy ways to lower their weight, such as diet and exercise. Individuals who fall in this range are at increased risk for a variety of illnesses. If your BMI is 27-29.99 your risk of health problems becomes higher. In a recent study an increased rate of blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease was recorded at 27.3 for women and 27.8 for men.

December 2010 Measurements (12-31-10)
Weight 129.0lbs (down 34.5lbs)
Pants Size 6-7
Shirt Size Small/Extra Small
Waist 28.5” (down 5.5")
Hips 34.5” (down 6")
Chest 32.5” (down 8")
Neck 11.75” (down 1.75")
Biceps 10.25” (down 2.25")
Calves 13.25” (down 2")
Thighs 19.0” (down 5.5")
BMI 21.5 (normal)

BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9 (Normal Weight)
People whose BMI is within 18.5 to 24.9 possess the ideal amount of body weight, associated with living longest, the lowest incidence of serious illness, as well as being perceived as more physically attractive than people with BMI in higher or lower ranges.

And just to put it all in perspective:

From my starting point...
BMI is over 40 (Obese Class 3 : Morbid Obesity)
With a BMI of 40+ you have an extremely high risk of weight-related disease and premature death. Indeed, you may have already been suffering from a weight-related condition. For the sake of your health it is very important to see your doctor and get specialists help for your condition.
