Ok, so I am reading this article this morning about 'ideal' weight, bmi, and body shape. I had never done the waist-to-hip ratio because I 'assumed' from the description of body shapes that I had read that I was an apple. Turns out I was wrong. I am a "less common" avocado shape. My first reaction was, "Well, why not? The 'less common' fits me to a T." LOL
After my initial, humorous reaction, I read on and discovered that Avocado is a higher health risk than a Pear and lower health risk than an Apple. If I couple that with the fact that I am now considered OBESE, rather than SEVERELY OBESE, I feel somewhat better about myself. I have a long way to go to be considered Overweight, but I have come a long way to drop that 'SEVERELY' from in front of me.
So, I'm thinking I am gonna have a little fun with this. Avocados are good and used in many different things. Not just everyone can be an Avocado. I already knew I was different, but now I know I am 'less common'. I'm a proud Avocado and I'm gonna rock this journey Avocado style!
