I weighed myself this morning, and I'm 10 lbs heaver than I thought I was.

The thing is, I thought I'd lost weight.

3.370

I win. Just kidding.

To be fair though, using BMI calculations would probably give you a better comparison.

You also need to account for the scale. I've weighed myself on two scales and there is a 12 POUND difference.

You don't look like you've gained any at all.



This project requires math, therefore I refuse to attempt. Numbers =

I'm so bad at math. Furthermore, we use pounds. I just got myself a mini-trampoline, exercise mat, wrap-around-weights, and pedometer.

did you make this little theory up yourself or is it based on some scientific study? 'cause unless my math is way way off... which is very likely... at my height, 6'3", i'd have to be 155 pounds to be a 2.7... "ideal" in your book. i haven't been 155 pounds since like 6th grade... when i was in the best shape of my life, playing basketball in college, my playing weight was 215... which would make me a lard ass according to this scale.

i made this up... i did some research before finalizing on 2.7..

i know i should depend on gender and also your built ( bone structure)...but 2.7 is roughly the most decent average value

Okay, I'm sorry but this is in no way scientific. It's fine for people to have a laugh about here at Interland, but if you tried to judge your ideal bodyweight based on this you'd be screwed.

If you want to know what your ideal weight is then it's best to talk to your doctor or some other healthcare professional. If you really want to do your own calculations then at least use the BMI system, which is somewhat more accurate.

BMI = weight (pounds) / height (inches) squared * 703

(ie if you're 120lbs and 5'5" tall then it's 120/65*65 * 703 = 19.97)

18.5 or less is considered underweight.
18.5 to 24.9 is normal
25 to 29.9 is overweight
30 and above is obese.

Am I boring anyone yet?

BMI is a great way to measure yourself, however it really depends on how much muscle you carry, or lack of. I go by the cloth size and height. Anyone in a size 0 is to thin. Anyone in a size 16 is to large. Most people should be between a size 3-9. This is of course girl sizes but you know what I mean.

I'm a 2.0 according to the slimness index, does that mean I'm big or small? Isn't smaller better?
