Default Re: weight

I've only been in the normal BMI range for roughly 3-6 months of my life, aside from maaaaybe the youngest part of childhood and birth. I was never so underweight that it was a medical concern, partially because A. half the doctors I went to were idiots, and B. The time I was at my worst was also when I was most isolated from medical care.

I was 85lb at 15 because of drinking habits, eating habits, and muscular atrophy. My body was beginning to eat away at itself.

I've never been overweight.

Good to hear you are now a healthy weight. I think nearly everyone experiences noticeable weight fluctuations. And even though I feel your last sentence was simply to show that your body has a mind of it's own, I wouldn't recommend starving or binging to the point of puking. Stay healthy, yo.

I'm normalweight, and i've been severely underweight.
Also, I've been at a weight which I used to find 'chubby' (It wasn't, I was BMI 20-21. That's body dismorphia guys.).

I'm on the pursuit of happiness.

I used to be really underweight, like up until last year I was always underweight especially for my height. Now I'm a healthy weight, still on the lower side but my BMI is healthy now. I literally just never used to eat, I didn't like food at all.

I am currently in the 'normal' range of weight,I try to keep eating healthy foods as much as possible (temptation is everywhere! sometimes,I don't resist it either...). Junk food (like hamburgers or any other processed foods) is a 'privilege' I enjoy once in months,though. If a teen has health issues like diabetes,I would advise him/her to go to a doctor in order to obtain a nutrition plan.

This, unfortunately, is not true. I have reasons to back it up.
a) I've calculated your BMI; 23.5. A normal BMI is anywhere from 18-24.9. Obesity is anywhere from 30 and above.
b) I, at 13, myself am also standing at a height of 5'7" and weigh 170 pounds. I have a BMI of 26.6, which, matter-of-factly, is just a bit over the "overweight" category.

Here's my typical sisters rant (she's a personal trainer) that ive heard 1,000,000 times:

When it come to fitness and health, Weight doesnt matter - size matters!! If you look in the mirror, you arent seeing weight, you are seeing size. Size also doesnt fluxuate as much as weight, so you remain happy about yourself longer. So when you're thinking about "health and fitness" -- Measure your SIZE and ignore weight.


BMI is kind of a misleading scale and its about a century old too. I think we've advanced a bit since then. lol. Someone that is physically strong would also have a higher then "normal" range BMI because of lean muscle. A pregnant woman and a 250 lb body builder guy with like 4% body fat would both be called "obese" according to BMI.

Plus someone in a healthly BMI range could be a completely UN-fit couch potato. So...its not about health either. its just "average" number that is pretty meaningless when it comes to health.

I've always been a little overweight, not so much. 10-20 pounds.
I am pretty muscular though (underneath a layer of "soft" as i say ). I have a short body and long legs. (6' even) Most of my weight is in leg muscle and fat. I seem pretty normal as a whole I suppose.

I have found my weight to be really stubborn. I can eat a lot and not gain anything, or I can diet for a few months and lose nothing.
I don't worry about my weight much.

Yes, I understand now. In my fitness gram I was in the 99th percentile for my age group. At that time I was 165 pounds, but that still shouldn't classify as obese (?)

I've never been under or averageweight, in fact, I'm noticably fat by anyone's measure, but I don't mind much because it has benefits. I'm been told by my friends that I'm cuddly to hug, I need fewer layers in the winter, and most importantly it scares off offenders. 250+ lbs + 6'0 stature + Huge hands and feet = Don't mess with that guy.

You don't classify as obese at all. I am 5'7" and 155lbs (bordering on getting to to 160lbs). I am by no means obese. I have people who come up to me and ask how I stay so skinny ("Oh, you must only weigh like 120lbs!") and then are shocked when they hear I'm nearly 40lbs heavier than they think I am.

I'm also very athletically-built (for a non-athelete) and I can put on weight and it's either muscle or just other random fat that's luckily distributed itself fairly evenly.

As for the OP's question: I suffered from anorexia for years. I never sought professional help because I was too ashamed and scared but I had a few good friends who helped me out and made sure I was eating. When I started going into recovery with other things, I took some of my coping mechanisms I'd learned and applied it to my eating disorder.

I had a BMI of I think 17.8 at the time and the criteria for anorexia is 17.5. Honestly? Still underweight by a fair bit and my behaviours around food were severely unhealthy and obsessive. Now I'm back up to 24.3 but I don't really pay much attention to BMI since it's dated and not very accurate.

Other than that, I've never really had weight problems. I've always been fairly average.

I had heavy weight issue but now i am completely changed due to my workout routine. I have reduced lot of weight during these few months. Exercise is very important for good fitness and health.

You sound like my sister. LOL (she's a personal trainer and gets SOOO angry when people talk about BMI. ) You're right. BMI is a BS scale and a pretty pointless one too.

Weight is actually a measurement of gravity anyway. SIZE is a measurement of yourself. You see "size" in the mirror. Size determines how clothing fits. Weight is kind of stupid when talking about fitness. In fact, many top gymnasts weigh more then many think. mostly because they are lean muscle mass with ~10-14% total bodyfat. They may look skinny, but again, how they look is about size - not weight.

So if you want to change your appearance, measure size with a cloth tape measure and work on that part. You can throw the bathroom scale away. its pretty meaningless when it comes to actual fitness.
