It's Official

According to the BMI (Body Mass Index) based on my latest weight and height (191lbs, 6'1") puts me at a BMI of 25.1 which according to the scale means I'm overweight! This is exciting news since I haven't been overweight in some 5 years. Fortunately the latest headlines show overweight people are less likely to die of certain diseases.

And no unfortunately this isn't your ticket to justify your unhealthy eating habits.

Anyway, don't worry I'm still chasing my goal which inevitably involves some weight gain and thus far slow and steady is winning the race. 16lbs in 4.5 months is awesome in my book. I mostly notice it in my legs, the tighter jeans I own are becoming more and more uncomfortable, but on the positive end of things my butt (glutes) are giving my belt a rest from holding up my pants...how lovely.

And in case it isn't apparent, I think the BMI is a poor measure of ones health. A more reasonable measure would be that of body fat percentage and unfortunately without getting a professional to take the measurements it's a little more difficult. It's time for bed. I'm going to go eat a cottage cheese concoction and pass out.

It's a Fat World...

All I can say is it's a sad day for America. Disney has to redesign the boats for the "It's A Small World" ride to accommodate for overweight people causing the boat to bottom out. What a cruel cruel world. The full post can be seen at wired.
