Well, I had initially mistaken my height in my BMI formula and unbeknownst to me, I was officially NO LONGER morbidly obese as of Saturday, July 16, 2011!

Well, there are BMI charts everywhere but they all just have whole inches for the height. In the BMI formula, your height is actually squared so I prefer to use the calculator because it's gives you a more precise number.

The CDC calculator is here: http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/***...alculator.html

But the formula, if you want to do it on your own is: weight (lb) / [height (in)]2 x 703 (that 2 after height is to square it)

Great news! Wait until the day you are simply "overweight" and see how long you do the happy dance. Who would have ever thought that such news would elate us?
