Interpreting Your BMI


BMI Weight Category
Under 18.5 Underweight
18.5- 24.9 Normal
25 - 29.9 Overweight
30 - 34.9 Obese
35 - 39.9 Clinically Obese
40 or greater Morbidly Obese

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a general indicator of whether or not you are maintaining a healthy weight based on the ratio of your weight to your height. It’s an imperfect scale as it doesn't account for differences in body types. For example, a 5 foot 9 inch bodybuilder who weighs 215 pounds and has a 6% body fat would be labeled obese. And there is already a new scale just for people from Southeast Asia where the ranges are lowered.

While it can be a good indicator of the healthiness of your weight if you fall within certain statistical norms that were used to develop it, it should be taken with a significant grain of salt and should not be used as a substitute for a professional evaluation of your health by a doctor.

Jacqueline (Cooky) Silva (from Dracut)

Cooky banner, after shot

Chose gastric bypass in May 2003 and has lost 150 pounds.

LGH-CWM-Cooky-BEFORE.jpgFood was her best friend. When people would ask why she is called Cooky, she'd say, "don't I look like a double-stuffed oreo?" In her effort to lose weight her jaw was wired shut not once, but twice! Before gastric bypass surgery she suffered from backaches, slept in a recliner, had diabetes and took seven pills a day - she's taken no medication since undergoing this procedure. Cooky enjoys dancing and now she power walks every night!
