My last medical check up confirmed that my weight is within the healthy range. My BMI (body mass index) also confirms that. But! I still see myself fat. I want to get back to my ideal weight according to my fitness consultant long ago was from 98-104 lbs. According to a chart I consulted a while back, my ideal weight for my age and height is 111 lbs. That's still too fat if I compare it with what my fitness consultant told me a long time ago.

According to an article I read, The Weight Health Connection, society has obviously influenced us on what an ideal woman and man should look like. The reality is, what looks attractive an weight is not necessarily a healthy weight. Take for example, a fashion model on the verge of being called anorexic may be viewed as attractive but common sense will tell us that that is definitely not a healthy weight. A man who pumps and bulks up might win body-building competition, but his physique might not be healthy too. The best way to measure if you're overweight or not is get your BMI and waist circumference. A BMI of 25 and over and waist circumference of 35 inches are indications that you are overweight. Check out the article for more information. Well, if you ask me, looking at the mirror is proof enough to see if you are overweight or not. Go look. No illusions this time.
