Thanks to the slurpee thread and finding out GJG is a stick :wink: I've decided to create a thread where if you want to you can post your height, weight and body mass index (BMI)

http://exercise.about.com/cs/fitnesstools/l/blBMI.htm


Use that site to find out your BMI

* BMI takes into account your weight and height, giving you a number that you compare with a BMI chart.
* It doesn't give you a body fat percentage, but indicates whether you're obese or overweight. For example, if your BMI is 22, that doesn't mean your body fat is 22%.
* A BMI less than 18.5 indicates underweight
* A BMI of 25 - 30 is considered overweight
* A BMI of over 30 is considered obese
* This calculation isn't as accurate, as it doesn't take into account age or sex. A muscular person may have a high BMI that doesn't reflect actual body composition
I'm 5'11, 140 and a BMI of 19.5

I'm 235 and 6'3" with a BMI of 28.8

Ye gods I'm a house :shock:

But wait, I really AM big boned and only about 15 pounds heavier than when I played football. It's just that some of the muscles have gone a wee bit south.

You guys know these test are so general. It said that I have 26%bmi. Which on their scale is overweight. Try telling me overweight when I show them 8 percent body fat percentage.
