This calculator doesn't measure your height and weight: you have to know how long you are and how heavy and then you can enter these measurements in the BMI calculator.
BMI is calculated by your weight divided by the square of your height.

THere are several other ways to measure yourself. Here on Sparkpeople you can also enter your hip, thighs, upperarm and waist measurements. Particularly the waist and hip are important measurements, because they can indicate whether you need to lose weight and if so, how much.

Good luck.

Thank you for the link! Congrats on the BMI loss! emoticon

Is the Height and Weight measurement as accurate as using a tape measure? Which one is best to use? I appreciate the help!!!

Keep in mind that BMI is not all that trustworthy, because it doesn't discern between fat and muscle.

I was the starter of this thread and my BMI is now 27.3, so it's steadily moving toward a healthier weight. emoticon

I am sure you won't stay at this weight for long as you will get it down to new records. Congrats.
