Two years ago I weighed between 157 and 160 pounds. I wore a size 10-12. I was eating healthy (avg 1500 cals per day) and exercising regularly. I was satisfied with my weight and body. I truly believe if I had lost any more weight, I would have started to look sick. According to BMI, I was severely overweight. According to BMI I should weigh in at 130 (for a high weight). I don't think I have weighed 130 since I was in the 6th grade, before I developed womanly curves. And I don't think it is even possible for me to reach this weight without starving myself.

That is why I hate BMI.
