Do you consider yourself to be overweight?
I could currently lose 5 pounds and I'd be fine with it but I'm also not worried about five pounds, lol.
Yes. I was underweight most of my life, even after having 3 of my 4 kids. After my 4th, I weighed 120. But menopause hit me hard, so I’m now considered overweight. I’m trying to work on it, because I have some extended family members who are morbidly obese that it has hurt their health and one even died in her sleep at age 39.
According to my BMI, I’m overweight. I don’t really consider myself overweight because I’m 5’11 and a power lifter. BMI doesn’t account for muscle.
BMI doesn't account for a lot of things I've never fit the BMI charts well. Except for twice in my life, after meds, I was over weight but lost it all after I was clean from those GFTs.
