This Makes Me Really Happy

According to my BMI, I've always been "overweight." Sure, I always think I could stand to lose 5 to 10 pounds, but that's just because I'm a girl. What girl wouldn't like to weigh less? But to have some supposedly reliable calculation tell me I'm outright "overweight" never sat very well with me.

That's why this article brings me great joy. Really 10 reasons why I should ignore my BMI? That's generous. I only needed one.

Does any one out there fall into the "normal" BMI range? I don't think I've ever met a single person who has.

Oh girl, I'm considered overweight too w/ my BMI. It's so stupid. Actually, because I'm shorter, at one point I was at the high end of the "overweight" category.

I don't even have to click on that link and I already know BMI is stupid.

Thanks buddy. Cuz the BMI thingy was telling me I have to lose 10 pounds just to be on the tail end of "normal"...
