BMI Then & Now

Height: 6'3"
Weight: 335+ pounds
BMI: 42

Height: 6'3"
Weight: 268 pounds
BMI: 33.5

According to BMI ranges, I'm still considered obese and would need to get just under 240 to fall in the overweight category. I've never really given much credence to BMI because it hasn't adapted or changed over time as we've adapted or changed. BMI has been around for well over a 100 years but roughly 30 in its current form.

I'm not sure how much more I want to lose. I'd like to get around 250, my high school weight, and I bet I could get under that because I was overweight at that time too.

It has been nice to not see my stomach hanging over my pants. It hasn't gone completely away. I have a compact car spare tire now instead of a SUV spare tire.
