Over 50 and under 30!!

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Ok, that's a little stretch. I don't turn 50 until later in the month, but I did get under the 30 BMI line of obese today!! And I'm not ever going to let myself get back over that line. I found a little BMI calculator on the web that also gives the percentile of your BMI by age, height and gender. Maybe this is no surprise to Sparkers, but I was stunned that more than 40% of my age/height group are estimated to be obese. Maybe that should make me feel good about my progress, but it made me sad. C'mon 50-something Sparkers! Let's get that number down!! We have too much to do to let this weight beat us!
