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.

Donald Sheppard (from Westford)

Chose gastric bypass in February 2008 and has lost 155 pounds.

LGH-CWM-Don-BEFORE.jpgBefore Gastric Bypass surgery Don took medication for his blood pressure, had elevated cholesterol and experienced sleep apnea. He believes his weight gain was a result of bad habits such as trying every item on a buffet and eating candy while watching television and he wanted to set a better example for his four children. Don and his family now enjoy kayaking, playing tennis and mountain climbing.
