[Friend Question] My friend is tall {like me, lol) at 5'7, and she weighs 151. Her BMI is 21.1. Is that healthy?

Is that healthy? I thought it sounded right, but she doesn't think so. She thinks she's fat, but she isn't....she actually pretty thin, and she wears a bikini to the pool all the time.

her BMI is actually 23.6 but either one is still in the normal range..

If she looks good, what does it matter? BMI isn't accurate anyway, and you don't sound like you care about health at all, but rather bikini bodies.

Actually, I was referring to the way she looks. I don't really care how anyone looks, just their personality. She is self-conscious, you see. Anyway, I can guess what your body type is, but we won't get into that.

One of the perks of working in the elementary school is there are a lot of people running around that are shorter than me!! (Until about fourth or fifth grade, anyway!)

Lois Lane? Cute! Well, I have had a great and wonderful day with the exception of allergies. How was your day? Super - as befitting a super hero? ;)

Allergies do get frustrating at times. Especially when it is non stop sneezing and icthy nose every 5 seconds. My day was superb. Went fast, thought it was Wednesday. Fixing to have to call it an early night for me. :( Gotta get up a hour earlier than usual. Good Night. ((Hugs)) and pleasant dreams. ;)
