S/C/G: 260/156/148-152

Height: 5 9

Default I'm NORMAL!!!

I'm 12 stone (168)!!! And not only does that mean that I'm very light (for me), it also means that, assuming my height is 5'9 (the scale that does print outs sometimes agrees with me and sometimes doesn't on that one*), my BMI is.....





24.85



Woo hoo!!!!

It used to be 38.1





*I went in today to get a print out to scan and put on here (I'm that excited), and for some reason it decided I'm 5 foot 2 I was very tempted to go to the counter and demand a re-weigh, until I realised it doesn't matter quite that much, at least it got the weight right, and I know how tall I am!

Thanks everyone

(but I forgot to say, maybe normal isn't the word as I'm about to sign up for a marathon to celebrate. Insane might be better )

Helen's now in the "normal" range for her height as per BMI.
