BMI calculator tick me off

So I was playing around with the BMI calculator and figured out where I need to be to be considered a normal weight. AS high as 132 and as low as 98lbs. Yeah because a 5ft 1inch woman at 98lbs sounds healthy ..right. I think that sounds crazy! Especially someone with any muscle tone what so ever. It is crazy that my goal weight still leaves me as overweight. I think that 135lbs is a healthy weight for me, way better than 179 but also way better than 98lbs.

Of course I would be lying if I said that 110lbs doesn't sound nice but I really don't see it as a reasonable weight for me . We shall see I suppose but if I feel good at 135ish then that is where I should be even if it makes me classifyed as overweight! SO there!

On a different note you all were right, I waited to shred for my husband to get home and then plans were made for the evening and we ended up staying out until 9pm. Oh well that is life, at least I got my run in!

I know what you mean. I am 5'2" and I can't imagine being that number either. But just take it a little at a time and see where it leads you.

Ugh, I hate the BMI calculator. I was always overweight even when I was 30lbs thinner.
