In any case at that point I did briefly look into international adoption. China cuts you off after a certain BMI. I guess there reasoing is health related...but still.
Yeah BMI is very crude. Feel very sad for this gentleman especially as he is heading in the right direction. Hopefully it gets reconsidered.
Wow! I did not know this. That is devastating to know... let me guess. I need to be like a 19? 20? Even if I hit my main goal weight, I'd be at 23% BMI according to the ticker.
As for NZ, that is stupid. I guess I'll never visit there and give them any hard earned money!
Edit - BMI of 40 ... that is not as bad as I thought it would be. I was thinking they wanted tiny people only x.x
