I'm an Avocado....hmmm, who knew?

Monday, September 17, 2012

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! emoticon

    Better an avocado than an apple emoticon
Both fruit have great healthy benefits so let us eat them while we lose their shape. emoticon
