    Your comment on Nessa626's post was just too funny! Just had to tell you.

    I agree that BMI gets a bad rap from people like that nurse you describe and also from insurance companies who hike up their rates for anyone out of the “normal” range. They’re only concerned about their profit margin, not our health and that’s just an excuse they use.

    For most people though, BMI is a quick and easy measure of where they are on the health spectrum. My concern with the BMI bashing of many articles is that people, women in particular, are using it as an excuse to justify their ever expanding selves.

    My contemporaries point to elite athletes, outliers on the scale, to disregard it completely. Trust me, these women have nothing in common with an NFL quarterback or an Olympic swimmer.

    I should have added that you look great BTW. I would have added you as a friend, but since I’m old enough to be your grandmother, you most likely don’t want me in your circle. Thanks for responding.

    Hello. I just saw your comment about BMI and had a question.
    Are we talking about the same BMI scale? When I plug your numbers in, I get 25.3. Fat because of 3 tenths of a point? Somehow, in our society today, I don't think you are what anyone has in mind. If you reported your weight as 2 or 3 pounds less, you're under 25.

    You have a remarkable story. Good luck to you.
