I just checked my BMI and it says I'm overweight. I knew that, but I thought I needed to loose 10 lbs and I've been walking and losing some. In reality they want me to have my high school body back to be in the "normal" range. Please someone else check theirs so Im not alone in this today. I eat pretty healthy and I'm a size 9/10. So what size is the BMI based on? If i reach their weight goal will I be a 4 or a 6? http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/bmicalc.htm (check out the meal planner...it tells calories for everything)

It really depends more on your overall size. Your pant size isn't a good indicator of what you look like. I know some women who are size 10 but with a small frame so they look very fat. But I know other who are larger frames and size 20 but look this. If your BMI is elevated, then you need to lose some weight. The size you will be depends on your frame, overall body shape, etc. Clothing size and BMI have nothing to do with each other really. Your BMI is more to do with your height and weight proportion. It's about being healthy.
