Apparently, I need to lose around 15lbs to get to normal weight. How accurate is BMI anyway? :p

I just go to the beach and pick up the ladies and do them hard. Then I throw them about 400 yards into the ocean.

Seriously, 6'0" 225.

This week, a small victory, I lost enough weight to wear my old 42 pants, no more 44 pants for me, woot!

It can be accurate. It can be completely off. That link tells me 210 lbs is the upper end of normal weight for me - and that's simply unreasonable. I was 235 at 17 with very low body fat, and didn't work out - but the BMI for that is 27.9 - "overwight".

For me and my body type, BMI is completely off.
