The only thing I suspect that I'm really doing about Ana that most experts wouldn't like is over restricting calories.  But to me that's a pot calling a kettle black.  These same medical experts won't hesitate to suggest bariatric surgery which would limit me to less than 800 calories a day and call it healthy so long as I pay the several grand for the operation.  Yet call me diseased for eating less than 1000 calories using mind tricks and pay them nothing. 

I just want to point out that a reputable medical expert will very much hesitate to suggest bariatric surgery, and only will do it if the risk of remaining morbidly obese outweighs the risk of surgery and undereating.

Using that to defend your mental illness to others is only fooling yourself.

This thread is going to be locked soon, I'm sure (or at least I dearly hope). Before it does, I wanted to post a link to this thread.

Read it. Because you need to understand that anorexia isn't a weight loss tool. It's a slow and painful path towards suicide.

If you are active at home plus exercising, you aren't sedentary, even if you are while at your job. Re-run the calorie target tool, and put in either lightly active or moderately active (read the descriptions of each as "or" statements - you don't have to match all of the bullets for it to fit you) and leave the goal date blank.  If lightly active and moderately active don't quite fit, you can estimate the average between the two.

You should eat at least 1400 no matter what.

If you are lightly active, you burn ~1950, and so should eat 1450 to lose 1lb/week.

If you are moderately active, you burn ~2200, and so should eat 1700 to lose 1lb/week.

Perhaps easier: eat a range between 1450 and 1700.

Your question had nothing to do with my body. How could it make me uncomfortable?

I guess I hit a nerve with this question. You may be healthy and fit, but obviously you are not comfortable with your appearance or you don't find yourself attractive. Otherwise, you would not make fun of my post.

Again, you didn't ask if we found ourselves attractive or even what BMI we found ourselves most attractive at.  People might answer the latter, better chance of answering the former. I feel confident to say there might be 1 in 50* people who, if asked to described themselves at their most attractive, would bring up BMI. Weight, yes. But very few people would use BMI.

You asked a ridiculous question, although looking through your past posts, I'm not too surprised.

Personally, I find abstract idealizations of beauty with no reference to actual bodies attractive.

But if you were to condense that down to a number, what would it be?

I really like the number seven and I like the symmetry of sevens.  So I'm going with 7777777.

But 7 isn't a symmetrical number.

Yikes. Really? That company would never get a drop of money from me.

Ehh, if anything it's like a big FU to warren by signing up on the gay version!

Except for the "they are still making money on it" part. But that's just me.

But leaving that aside...

 

I hope it works out for you. At the very least, you get to meet some new people, explore something that is new, etc.

I know some very happy couples who started that way - one just chatted me for my address, I'm guessing for the wedding invite. Nothing out of your mind about it.

I hadn't checked the OP's profile, but knowing the join date is today, I'd go with this.

Oh, so you wanted the BMI that each of us feels most attractive at? Because that's a different question.

What you asked in the OP was what BMI is the most attractive for a specific age/gender. That is meaningless - my "most attractive BMI" when I was 20-something is not going to be the same as what it was for another woman at 20-something, because we are different people, so there is not even a broad answer.

No, they answered your question, you just didn't like the answer.

I thought of that... but I can't remember them ever confessing for each other... if it's a tv show, I'm thinking it would be something like Monk, where it's just one episode, rather than the entire plot of the show.

My second thought was Nero Wolfe.

I had to google, so probably not :)

In my head, I've got this image of a movie or tv show, and I'm wondering if someone can help figure out what it's from:

Almost definitely a comedy.  Crime has been committed.

There is an entire family involved, and as each member of the family decides that one of the other family members did it, they confess to the crime instead.

The cop(?) says, when yet another person has confessed, something like "you people really need to learn to wait for your lawyer" and also something like "if I ever commit a crime, I want to be part of this family."

Google has not helped one bit.

I tried to read it, but gave up when I realized I was only half done, and was starting to get confused - he doesn't want a sarcastic person, but doesn't want someone who loves life... So sincere and depressed?

I did read the whole list and by the end was entirely confused.  I'm pretty sure he wants a deaf mute who's lived in seclusion for her entire life and has no opinions on anything.

Hmm... I think Pants might fit the bill.
