I was a chubby kid, a chubby teenager, and now I am a chubby adult. The bmi indicator says I'm obese. - utter rubbish! How can a uk size 14 (us size 12) be obese?
There have been times in my life when I've looked at my weight as a problem but now over the years I have learned to live with it.
I exercise to keep fit, I eat healthy and within limits, I get a good night's sleep, I don't smoke nor do I drink alcohol, and I meditate to find the peace within.
There was a time during my late teens and early twenties when I lost a lot of weight - and standing on the scale I was perfect for my height. I was skin and bone, I looked dreadful and malnutritioned, I looked half dead. But my height-weight-bmi was perfect.
I got out of that madness as fast as I could - chubby looked and felt good.
So my chubbiness no longer bothers me.
Being healthy and fit is my aim - having the perfect height-weight-bmi score is not.
Enjoy life. Wishing you all good health and happiness.
