In theory it would be 36, but I also have a lot of muscle mass, so to be accurate I'd say around 33.9.

I last had it done with calipers and was at 18, and before that had it done with the electrical impulse thing, and it was also 18. Doing it based on height and weight doesn't work if you're muscular, because if I do it according to just that formula, I come in at 21.5. Muscle weighs more than fat.

i'm whippet-slim.

sometimes.

i don't know what i weigh.

i have a strange metabolism now, stress or being busy makes me drop weight ridiculously fast, almost like a parkinsons weight drop. so i try and keep a bit of weight on.

Yeah, it's strange to do it with just that calculator.

According to this, my mom's a 19 (she's 5'8" and 125 lbs.), although she has some muscles, but nothing major but enough to consider her "athletic".

Mine is 23.8... normal range... which is weird because I have a prominent stomach.

Yes, but I'm very small for my age. I'm 5'3" and 92 pounds.

No, I meant what are you doing in the in-depth discussion...I doubt I'd be bothered if I was 18 to talk about how skinny I was.

You see, even though I'm young, I can be very wise for my age. And even more and more lately have I began to look down upon my peers' immaturity. Sometimes it's nice to take a break from them all and enjoy a mature conversation. I hope you understand.
