Copying (somewhat) from a friend's blog....
Ideal BMI 19-25
Severely Obese 35
Morbidly Obese 40
Super Obese 50
I am currently at 231lbs which puts me in "Severely Obese". I have never been above Severly Obese.
210 would put me in "Obese". How fast can I lose 21 pounds?!? This is still more than I was when I got pregnant with either child...
185 would put me in "Overweight". I weighed 180 after my first child but before I quit pumping breast milk. Whenever I quit pumping, I'd put on weight....
155 would put me just into "Ideal BMI". 150 has been my current weight goal. I have not asked my DR what it should be, but have a yearly exam in 2 weeks and plan to set a goal then.
145 was my weight when I got married, I think. It might have been 140! This was in 1988.
135 was my weight when I graduated from college. (1985)
125 was my weight when I graduated from high school. (1981)
I think I was 115 when I was a Freshman in high school, which is borderline "Underweight" for my height!
