Bmi is a really bad tool to use for obesity as muscle weighs heavier eg gym junkies often measure obese with bmi so men may not actually be obese. I also believe alot is nurture to. Education whats available at home to eat and lifestyle have huge impact to i think. Not sure what the other ladies think who actually have 1st hand experience.
    Yes, BMI doesn't take into account peoples frames or muscle mass etc but there has to be some kind of benchmark they use and BMI's it. I agree that nurture/education is a factor and I'm really mindful about what I give DD to eat (as well as ourselves) and drink. She only has water, milk and a small amount of V8-type juice (40mls + 85 mls of water) once a day to help with her constipation issues.

    I also encourage her to move around a lot during the day as best as a toddler her age can and will be enrolling her to play a sport/dancing etc when she's old enough as well as swimming early next year some time as that's a skill she definitely needs. We'll practice in my older sisters pool until then

    There's also a psychological/physiological component that goes with obesity which has to be addressed once you're at that stage (and I've been there) as you have to understand your relationship with food and why you [insert whatever issue you have.... for eg....too big a portion size, emotional eating, sugar/junk food addict etc, etc] do these things as if you don't resolve it, you'll just end up doing it all over again!!

    In summary...that's why it's not as easy as "less food in, more energy out" for the majority of obese people even though it's a common sense formula for losing weight and maintaining. It's all the underlying sh!t that's in control of the person mentally/emotionally.

    Well, now your picture means a lot to the both of us, @Tahli. It really meant a lot to me that you posted it up to share. It was just one of those 'moments' for me. I'm sure you get it.

    So where are you up to now love? I get so confused trying to keep up with everyone of late - really, I need to buy a whiteboard like @BIB! ( BIB!)

    Am I right in thinking you are scheduled for an o/s trip shortly for FET? Apologies if I've gotten you mixed up with someone else....

    I think it depends on where you get it done. The average seems to be $300-$400 but I've heard up to $550 in the city and much lower in other states....
