So, today I had my biometric screening done at work. For the 3rd year in a row, according to the BMI chart, I’m overweight!
Here’s what, black women for the most part have bigger hips, thighs, and booties! It seems unfair to use one scale for all people when we’re all made up differently but hey, what do I know!
The first year that I became “overweight” it honestly hurt my feelings! But now, not so much because if this is what overweight looks like, then I’ll take it! Of course I’d love to lose a good 20 lbs, but I’m not going to sit here and sulk about a number on a chart. But I do think that measure is a little outdated.
What do you think?
