    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!
