Topic: RE: New Harley! And my thoughts on the BMI chart
I have people (some who knew me before surgery and others who I didn't know pre-op) telling me I'm tiny all the time, even though I still fall into the low end of the obese side of the charts. I don't see it, I'm still a size 12 or M/L so I can't be that small (or at least I was before the TT, I've only worn dresses and leggings since). I'm already down 6 pounds and super swollen and have my period so I'm probably into the overweight category now. When people guess my weight (I never understood why people feel the need to do that) it's almost always 20-30 lbs under what I actually am. Maybe it's because now the majority of my weight is in my boobs lol, these DDDs are still going strong.
Then there is my sister who is my complete opposite looks wise (I am adopted but still lol). She's always been under 100 lbs even though we ate the same things growing up, her probably eating more and worse, especially now. When she graduated college she went to get her own health insurance plan and they rejected her because she was underweight and therefore must have an eating disorder or disease. Luckily she quickly got a job and didn't need to worry about it.
I too never got too caught up in the chart but more how I feel. I think we all agree that that is what really matters.
