Recognition is half the battle. There are plenty of people that know they’re overweight, but they don’t recognize it or realize they need to take it seriously. You have to recognize you’re overweight and vow to make a change for the better.
This is not always an easy thing to do, but it is not impossible. There are people who have lived many years as obese or overweight individuals, but have made a decision to lose weight. They are now living better lives feeling more comfortable within their own skin.
WHAT BENEFITS WILL I HAVE IF I LOSE
YOUR NORMAL BMI (Body Mass Index)
Your BMI (Body Mass Index) is a number calculated from your height and weight, and does not take into account whether you’re male or female. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) defines a healthy BMI range as between 18.5 to 24.9. (47) For example, an adult male or female that is 5 feet 2 inches in stature should generally weigh between 101 pounds and 136 pounds to be considered a healthy weight. An adult male or female that is 5 feet 8 inches in stature should generally weigh between 122 pounds and 164 pounds. An adult male or female that is 5 feet 11 inches tall should generally weigh between 178 pounds and 133 pounds.
An easy way to calculate your own BMI (Body Mass Index) is looking at a BMI table or clicking on the button "Calculate your BMI" on our homepage. All you have to do is put in your height and weight and push enter and you will instantly know what your BMI number is. Once you know your number, calculate how much you should weigh in order for your BMI to fall between 18.5 and 24.9, and make that your goal weight.
WEIGH YOURSELF ON A SCALE & TRY TO
FIND YOUR BMI NUMBER (56)
If a person has a BMI number of 29.6 he/she is definitely overweight, but just shy of being considered obese. Anything over a 24.9 BMI indicates you are probably overweight and therefore more prone to acquiring a related disease. Anything lower than an 18.5 BMI may indicate underweight issues, malnutrition, anorexia, or other systemic problems.
