Hi guys,
I'd be really interested if loads of people could post their BMI, their dress size and there frame size.

Small frame: fingers overlap when wrapped around wrist.
Medium frame: fingers just touch
Large frame: fingers don't touch.

I have never been thin, and I know everyone's different, but I wanna get some idea of what size I will be when I weigh x. Give or take a stone.

At the moment I've a BMI of 40, Dress size 20, and a large frame.

Thanks!

Guen

Isn't the wrist thing interesting! I don't think it's the most accurate thing in the world, but it gives a guide! I found it recently while surfing the net in search of the answer to the ultimate question....not 'what is the meaning of life' but 'what should I weigh' and it turns out the answer isn't 42 either.

Another interesting point, this is just what I read, please don't quote me, on the frame size is that the BMI is taken for a medium frame size, and that if you're a small frame you need to weigh 10% less to be the same BMI, and 10% more if you're a large frame size.
I am a large frame size, but on the small side of large, so I reckon I should weigh about 7% more than my BMI states. Apparently the ideal BMI is 23 (you're least likely to die according to insurance figures...but is skewed because lots of very ill people lose a lot of weight).
So for me at 5'1" with a large frame...my optimum weight is....130lb...an official BMI of 24.6, and an 'unofficial' BMI of 23.

I am really ranting today!! Sorry, been off college for 6 days, job not starting for another 10, going mental!!!!! Not used to being alone!

don't worry!! ur not ranting at all, i have been off work all week too and have got through by being on here, it has kept me occupied so as not really thought about the diet, it was bad planning by me to have my first week of diet while on holidays from work!!

hope it's helping u stay focused!!
