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.

Johanna Cruz (from Lawrence)

Chose gastric bypass in May 2007 and has lost 100 pounds.

LGH-CWM-Johanna-BEFORE.jpgJohanna chose Gastric Bypass surgery because she was struggling to walk up three flights of stairs; her feet were swollen and hurt constantly, and she had to take a nap to have enough energy to do housework. Following the procedure she is more alert and no longer suffers from depression. She now enjoys being more active with her children!

"Make sure you're mentally and physically prepared to do the work before choosing a weight-loss procedure."
