So at age 52 I am in the normal range, which is good. When I used this at the clinic at the end of December I was at 36, so I have dropped quite a bit in 3 weeks.
Is this the BMI that the family doctor keeps referring to? She has a chart that she looks at. I "think" age may play into it, but I know the chart she looks at has height and weight... can't remember what my BMI is, but I'm now getting into the thin area...
