Fat Chance

As a follow up to last week's post about maintenance, I was looking at an online BMI calculator. I know BMI is a flawed system and doesn't work real well, but it's quick and easy.

Of course, it gives results that say I should weigh 166 pounds. A bit of perspective on that is necessary. I'm 6' 1" tall and rapidly approaching 40. I weigh about 215 - 220 lbs. I haven't shrunk any since I was 22, to my knowledge. When I was 22, I was on active duty in the 82nd Airborne and probably in the best shape of my life. I weighed about 180 then. I'm sure as hell not going to weigh less than that now and be any kind of healthy.
