Put down the pipe

According to the crack addict BMI chart: I am still "moderately overweight." Who made this BMI chart? Seriously the dude needs to put down the pipe.

A few times a week I hear things like "you aren't going to lose anymore weight are you???" and "your face is getting really thin." It sucks to be 5'2" I would have to be the size of an Olsen Twin to ever be "normal weight" and that is SO NOT NORMAL in my humble opinion.

I have resigned myself I will never be normal.

Screw normal. Normal anything is completely overrated.

The Only Normal People Are The Ones You Don't Know Very Well

Little bit o' trivia: Body mass index (BMI) or Quetelet Index Body mass index is defined as the individuals body weight divided by the square of their height. It was invented between 1830 and 1850 by the Belgian Adolphe Quetelet.

1830 and 1850?!?! I think it's time we figured out a better system.

I agree! PUT DOWN THE PIPE DUDE! I think the whole BMI chart should be re-evaluated to reflect 2008. Not 1808! Better measuring skills are in order I say!

Hats off to you eggface! SYRACUSE, NY Agrees!!

Still commenting on really old posts as I work my way back in time. I am also 5'2" and small boned My surgeon gave me 105 pounds. Ummmmmmm, sorry, but at 135 I was in a size 6 and looking GREAT. My husband would kill me if I turned into an Olsen twin.

I have to stick up for my husband here. He is okay with me fat if I was okay with it. I'm not so he's not, but it would have been okay with him. I stuck gold, but later in life. We married in 2004. I was 39.
