So July 9th, I wrote a post called 28.1%. It was post about the BMI and how it’s a horrible measure for identity. We shouldn’t pay attention to someone calling you overweight. Then I did a follow up post called 26.9%, August 8th. This one is called 26.2%
The first 20lbs is always easy. The next 20lbs is not as easy. Technically – according to the BMI. I’m still overweight. I still need to lose 8 lbs in order to get to normal. We’ll see. I have liked this series. It’s not like I’m doing it just so that I can write about it. I am really trying to become more healthy. I’m not gonna let the BMI scale get me down, but I can use it as a measure to figure out some goals. We’ll see.
Still – you can’t let some dumb scale determine your identity.
