I would suggest using your current height since that is where you are at at this point. Something to consider too, is having your body fat percentage checked to give you a better idea of how much you may need to lose and will be a better indicator of your weight loss needs than BMI. Usually you can get that done for free or for a low cost at one of your local gyms.

Hello all,

I used to be 5 foot 4.5 inches, but now I have degenerative disc disease and I'm down to 5'3. I feel like the height loss in "artificial" since it doesn't reflect other changes in my body, so I'm not sure which height I should use to calculate my BMI. Any thoughts on that?
