okay, let's test the theory: does anyone here fall within the healthy bmi range, and are you actually [*gasp*] healthy?

 Same here :\ Went from 250 to 185, I'm a size 12/14 down from an 18/20. Still overweight/obese depending on the day :P

 Thanks Buggy :) That's sweet X]

Not there yet, but working on it with great zeal.

*SHOCK*

 

I am!  5'0" -- 110lbs, my BMI is 21.5. I'm healthy indeed!

I'm actually trying to lose a little (5-10 at most), but only because I am an actor and my profession is obsessed with thinness. (Plus because I am short, I tend to play children, so looking overly womanly is not ideal.)

 

 

yes.

Yep.  Mind you, I was healthy before I got here too.

Did I miss what the theory is? (Obviously, because I don't know it.)

Definitely not in a healthy BMI range. No, I don't think I'm healthy...because of the BMI thing.

it came out of this thread.

I was relatively healthy mentally, physically and BMI-wise until November, and then everything went all to heck.  Now I'm unhealthy, but I'm going to fix what's ailing me.

Oh, I just came from that thread. That guy had some delusions. WTF was his point, exactly, 'cause this is what I got:

"Look at all you underweight people in the healthy BMI range. Why can't you be fat, like any normal person?!"

 *eyeroll*

yes and yes.

Not only yes, but it's the high end of the normal range where I start looking fat, with extra chins and whatnot.  Underweight looking, my ass.
