for a pre-cursor to BMI :-)

My BMI fluctuates between 18 and 21 (it was 18 when you last saw me, and 21 at my heaviest). When I was last at the doc's, about 2 months ago, it was 19; which would have been what I would have calculated out when I was in my early 20's.

However, BMI does not take into account muscle mass. Many very healthy and muscular women will show as having a high BMI (muscle weighs more than fat), while many skinny/fat women (those who have almost no muscle at all) will have a low BMI. So I really don't take much stock in it.
