Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
"You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I

You will stay dehydrated which in turn is healthy for you.
The most typical side effects of Phentermine are restlessness,
anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, dehydration, headaches,
and of course loss of appetite. Side effects from taking
diet pills can vary from minor to being fatal. I can understand why somebody who
is very overweight would want to decrease the
level of effort as much as possible when they are trying to drop the pounds.

Many such diet pills do not contain any side effects.

If the calculator can't take into account a person's build and/or body type then why even have the BMI? making a system that can't measure what it is made to accurately makes no sense. I personally have a natural build of large shoulders, chest, and a very strong back, so how am I supposed to take that into account? I can't, which means the BMI tells me absolutely nothing of importance. I am getting ready to have a "tummy tuck" because of loose skin left after a large amount of weight loss in roughly 2 1/2 years and I wanted to be just over the weight I should be so the surgery would leave me roughly where I should be afterward, but there is no way to test that so its basically a guess.

Hey, this is to the 12 year old girl that wants to loose weight but called her self "a lazy ass". It's okay time from time a lot of us are lazy butm I honestly feel if your going to loose weight don't try to loose too much because at 12 your body is freshly in puberty. As a female it is normal and safe for you to have extra weight on you. Especially taking in account that you are already 5'7. Your body will she'd off some of the fat over the next 4 years. So you can bust your metabolism just eat your meals in portions through out the day. Wish you luck on your journey and love yourself

Well believe it or not just s nice walk every day to start does wonders and the best part is that walks are free, also, another very easy form of exercise is in the pool. And there are many things you can do such as work your legs even, with virtually no impact. Don't feel pressured into going to the gym or anything, like I said before, just start out slowly with walks and pretty soon it will just be second nature to you. :-)

Guys, this calculator says I am overweight boarder line obese, however I am a rower and work out three hours a day and have abs. Obviously this calculator is not completely accurate.

Caitlin, and everyone who needs to lose weight, I was obese two months ago and now I will shortly move from overweight to normal. I didn't do much exercise other than leisurely walking and I lost lots of weight because I went on an anti-candida diet. Read about it on google. I bet most of you have it. My sisters and mom also have it but only one of my sisters and I went on the diet and we both lost the same amount of weight. And we're very happy on the diet because we don't have to limit or count calories or ever do strenuous exercise. I hope that all of you can get the courage to start the diet and enjoy your lives more. I've been suffering with my weight and some other nasty symptoms since I was young so I'm gonna continue to work hard on the diet and get to a weight were I am fit and healthy and don't need to worry too much about how much I eat. Good luck to all of you who are also trying to lose some weight. Please don't starve yourselves and harm your body!

108 pounds is normal!? Crazy! I'm 5' 4" and I am perfect at 145. It's saying it's borderline overweight? Crazy! No wonder there's eating disorders!

Im 5'4 and 148 and I think its crazy they consider like 111 is okay to be at this height its crazy

So I am 5'8" weight 160lbs and this marks me at just under overweight. I find this somewhat odd since the average size shirt I wear is small, if not extra small, and my pants size is 29w 30l.

I think one of the worst tools for health and wellness. I am 54, weigh 222 lbs, I am more muscular and stronger now then when I was in college playing baseball, running, and lifting weights all the time, at 180 lbs. I know I could lose 25 lbs, but this ranks me as obese. 5'9, 34 inch waist. bench over 300 lbs, leg press 450.

Okay, 5'9", 28 inch waist, but weigh 185 pounds. I'm confused. I see women my height who weigh 145 to 150 pounds and wear the same clothing size and they're not classified as overweight yet I am. I am not very muscular either so this is seriously freaking my mind right now. Seriously,I'm starting to wonder if I have some weird freaky disease yet to be discovered by science?

I thought my BMI is overweight, but the result 22.6, which is normal. I'm 15, male, 5'11, my weight increasing to 162lbs from 155lbs. I'm quite happy with the result although my weight has increasing.

Zullo - Thanks for noticing. The problem was that the height dial had more precision than the display of the units. For example - you could set the dial in the high end of 5feet 6" or in the low end of 5feet 6" and this would affect the result. The dial has now been fixed so it has the same resolution as the display.

How accurate is this? I calculated my BMI many times before and all of them consistently said my BMI was 18.3 at my height and weight but this one says it's 17.9

mine is 40.8 :sad: I'm only 16 and have been trying everything I can do to lose weight and it doesn't work. I have been jogging for and hour each day for the past few months and been cutting down on what I eat (I didn't eat much to begin with and I hate sweets) but I have managed to gain weight and its very frustrating.. I'd rather be underweight than overweight.

Checking your BMI will give you an accurate idea of how much weight you need to lose. What it does not show you is how to achieve it. If you can lose weight naturally is better than relying on weight reduction pills but if you are struggling appetite suppressants and fat burners might help you.

Is it really helpful in assessing our health? Being obese put individuals at a higher risk of health problems, but two new studies published today call this realization into a question. The studies indicated that the BMI scale might not be a correct health predictor. Related article I read: BMI and obesity may not predict health problems (www.newsytype.com/10159-healthy-obese) . Realization that we should not rely on just one medical test with regards to our health condition.

I have only 11% body fat which is very low and have a BMI of 23.8. I am by no means stocky either. I am currently at my training weight for triathlon. If I were to have an 18.5 BMI which is still 'healthy' I would have to drop 15kg! I would look absolutely emaciated! Given that healthy males have a lower percentage of body fat, which weighs less, along with the fact that they have a broader bone structure that is designed to facilitate bigger muscles, they should be given a higher 'healthy' range than females on the BMI calculator. I could not imagine a male with BMI 18.5 and it is no coincidence that most females would rather not imagine this either!

I can appreciate that people are becoming more health conscious and we are being provided with more tools to get there, but I feel that they should come up with something more personalized. According to this BMI calculator I am obese. I will tell you if I were to loose as much weight at this "advises" me to then I would be very sick. My natural weight with my body type is much more than this allows. If people with poor self esteem actually took this BMI into consideration then, we will be creating poor self body images. Not all body types fit into this calculator.

Dave - that can be true in some cases - especially if you talk about activities like running. On the other hand, the more muscular person is likely to have more muscle control around the joints, which prevents joint problems.

Even if its muscle thats causing the overweight condition, for health problems like joint pain in the legs or in the spine that doesnt really matter. It is the raw mass that counts there. Of course being overweight because of muscles instead of fat is healthier on the internal organs, it still is very hard on the joints. So working out to the point of "muscle obesity" is not too healthy either, at least not for the joints.

I find BMI to be useless, or at least wildly invalid for people that are outside the average stature. I'm 6'5" and with my frame, my natural weight is around 240, and that's with very little body fat.

it's very easy to ignore, actually. it only accounts for weight and height, with no consideration of what makes up that weight. Body composition is a waaaaaay more important number, but its not so easy to measure.
