    I would say I am a 3 and I'm almost underweight. In the past I've been a 4 and as a teen a 5.

    The individual perspectives are interesting.

    Ummm, no they wouldn't. Do you understand how BMI is calculated?

    Yes on height vs weight but not cubic measuring taking into account extra width is naturally neaded mathimatically for stability. The formula should be shomewhere between 2.2 to 2.5 in the exponential growth calculation.

    I agree - there is definitely the opportunity to skew based on how you view yourself. I'm very close to the bottom end of normal, I will admit. And I say I'm a 2 based on the ribs and collarbones. Otherwise I would have said a 3.

    4 I could go either way - healthy or overweight.
    I agree with this.
