Obesity… it’s morbid.


Didja see that little play on words there? LoL So darn clever I am.

Ok, so this morning I figured I’d see how far I have come on the Body Mass Index or  BMI.

When one is obese, it means that a person is 20% or more pounds over their ideal weight. This equals a BMI of 30 or more. Morbidly obese people are at least 100 pounds overweight or have a BMI of 40 or greater.

At my starting weight, my BMI was 44. I was morbidly obese.

Currently, my BMI is 34. I’ve just crossed over from being morbidly obese to just being plain old fashioned obese. The difference is that I probably wont suddenly drop dead. I’ve left the premature death category and am now in the slow, deteriorating death area. (risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes…you know the drill)

18.5 or less Underweight
18.5 to 24.99 Normal Weight
25 to 29.99 Overweight
30 to 34.99 Obesity (Class 1)
35 to 39.99 Obesity (Class 2)
40 or greater Morbid Obesity

Note: the BMI does not differentiate between fat and muscle. If you’re a muscly person, you may not get an accurate BMI. There are other ways to measure your sveltey self. Please visit to plug your information into the calculators here to figure out where you stand.
