Obese, Overweight, or Healthy?
Friday, July 30, 2010
I just looked up the BMI ratings for my height:
110-149 lbs = Healthy
149-179 lbs = Overweight
179 lbs and up = Obese
I've just gotten down from 238 to only 206, which feels fantastic, but is still Obese.
My goal is set at 180, because when my goal was 150 (a weight at which I look DAMN good) I made it down to 180, was walking daily and felt healthy but kicked myself for not losing more so I ended up gaining. I don't want that kind of stress. Does it really matter if I am officially on the lower end of Obese, if my blood pressure is good and I look and feel good?
Comments welcome. (And yes, I should also ask my doctor what he thinks.)
