What’s in a BMI?

Well, today is a height-weight chart analysis I’ve been waiting for. When I started out, and I did in 2007, I was 245. I remember seeing the numbers and then sinking to my knees in panic. I was a size 22. In 2008, I got on the scale at Weight Watchers and was 220. My body mass index, or bmi was 35.5. I have been in the obesity category for years. And it pains me, because as a kid and into my adolescent years, I was thin. But after college and when I began to work and got a car, I wasn’t quite as active.
I could blame it on a lot of things, but to be honest, a lot of it was apathy and laziness. Now, it’s about priorities.
Today, I am 186. My bmi is 29 which puts me in the “overweight” category. I’ve never been so happy to be here. Not stopping now, I want to see what a normal bmi feels like. Bet it’s better than a chocolate bar. 🙂
