I am short

In response to a comment made on my previous post. Thank you helderheid! You are far too kind! But, I do have some weight to lose because I am only 5' 3 1/2". I am pretty darn short. However, I don't think I need to get down as far as my BMI says I should. I wrote a post titled: BMI Calculator

In this post I explore different configurations of weight and height when plugged into the mechanical output of the BMI calculator. I came to the conclusion that I think BMI is completely ridiculous and shouldn't be taken too seriously. I don't think I need to be 105 or even 115 pounds, but I think getting into the 120's would be kind of nice and furthermore the 130's would be fantastic too! We will see? :)

It is amazing when I think of the shrinkage that has occurred in my body: 180... 170... 160... 150... 145! I wonder what my body will look like with a further decrease of 145... 135... 125... ? I should be really happy! I am really happy with the loss I have achieved!


  1. At this point, you might want to consider hydrostatic fat testing, in order to fine-tune your goals. It's really helpful to see how much fat vs. muscle you have in a really accurate way!

  2. Thank you Christy! I appreciate the suggestion! I was also going to ask if you could post a comment as to how I can make a comment on your blog now. I have tried 3 separate times, because your blog is wonderful but it won't let me get through? I don't know what I am doing wrong? :)

  3. Wow! You look terrific! I must agree with helderheid-- I don't know where those last few pounds you want to lose will come from! I know you must feel great too-

    I've enjoyed reading through your posts and catching up with your progress. I hope you have a wonderful P3!
