  • BMI charts are useful for statistical evaluation of large groups of people, awfully inaccurate for individuals. Look for a height-weight chart by body build, or get a fat caliper test to better determine how much fat you need to lose.

  • Health is more important. As an adult I have been an A cup. I am very comfortable with that. The only time my boobs get bigger is when I am pregnant. Being 160lbs is not that bad of a weight. I say do what makes you more comfortable with you. Lose the amount of weight that you already want to lose and see how you feel.

  • Health is so much more important. I'm 5'3 and lost 95 lbs and the boobs went with it. Yeah I feel like a man sometimes but I have a rocking body and my clothes look good boobs or not. My husband doesn't mind me having a small chest and if I want my clothes to look better I just wear a padded bra.

  • According to BMI charts I'm obese. I disagree. Yes, I'm overweight and need to lose a LOT of weight, but I DON'T think I'm obese. Even when I was a healthy weight for my body (see high school jock) and in shape I was still borderline overweight for my height. While in the military only ONCE did I "make weight"/meet their weight standard for my height, and that was when I was so stressed and depressed I was only eating three meals a week.

    Do what you think is best for YOU, not what society tries to dictate.
