I have a question about BMI. I am a very short person, 5' 0" and I am trying to get back into a healthy lifestyle. I weigh myself on the 1st and the 15th of every month, no more. I am not stuck on what the scales say at all as I measure as well and go by the inches I have lost as a more accurate measure.
However, having said that, I hate the fact that the BMI has me listed as Obese. Even when I was at my smallest years ago and wore a size 5-7, it still had me at overweight.
I know that this is all in my head, but I just wondered if anyone else would like to tar and feather the person that invented BMI?
