    What I have against BMI calculators is that they don't take into account whether the weight is from muscle or fat. A really beefed-up guy could be "obese" just bc his muscle mass is so great.

    So true, but is not the case with the vast majority. So if you're not a regular gym goer pumping iron five times a week, it'll probably be pretty close.

    By the way mom, I like your signature line... :clap:

    I saved a trip to the website by just looking in my mirror. I don't need any calculator throwing salt in my wounds!

    No kidding. It says I have 28%.:smoke:

    Not in THIS life. I'm 5'10 and 200 pounds, but I have a 33" waist. They're off by about 20%.:mm:

    Said I was 25.6%. The .6 being the amount over weight. Maybe. Haven't worked out lately. Been partying too much.

    Was that excuse good enough? Didn't think so... :eek:
