#1
I personally want to get down to a fit and healthy 12/14...

But i suspect that will still put me in the 'Overweight BMI' I WAS worried about this.... until i read these articles so i thought i would post them.... Don't let BMI rule your lives peeps!!!

BBC - Health: BMI

Love the diagram on this one...lol...

Very interesting. My dad was 15st and classed as obese but doe body building!! Was just stupid.

But in relation to me I remember I got down to 12 stone many moons ago and I looked healthy and a size 12 . People thought if I went down to 10 st that I'm ment to be I'd look ill. So I think I'm going to go as far as I can until I feel happy and healthy.

Deezer how much weight have u lost in what time? I wanna stay on TFR for another 8 weeks, I find weekends so hard and keep nipping at food, then the guilt is terrible. I am 15st 3 now & would love to be 12st 7ish by Christmas. At 5ft 8.5 that would make me a nice size 14. You are doing great Deezer & a great help to everyone on here xx

i want to get to a 12/14, i dont think i would ever get to a healthy BMI as it seems so far away. i feel good at the size i want to be anyway. BMI is stupid my fella is classed as obese as hes 18 stone but theres not a bit of fat on him! hes does strong man so its all muscle. i think being happy in your own body is better than anything xx
