Don't believe in it, it cannot be true, there must be a problem with my scales, or my tape!!!!!

I first used metric dimensions then tried in old money, I will go with the first because I am Tonga but in feet/inches and stone/pounds I am Micronesia.

Yesterday I pushed myself in my wheelchair all around the Metro Centre (it's huge) so I got loads of exercise, mind you I did have a bottle of red and a good wedge of cheese before bedtime.

When I was working the Occ Health Nurse told me I was borderline obese, my reply was because I love food and the wife's a very good cook, the only way I could get my BMI down was to grow a few inches!

Thanks, Rob. Pal. Matey. That, I did not need to do.
I shouldn't be surprised, I've put on 2 stone in 12 months, having lost 1 stone in the previous year.

Ah well, we all have to die of something it may as well be fro

Ta for the compliments :D

My wife and I were discussing this (she too is underweight according to this) and for us, being this shape seems normal and everyone else is er....... larger than us. All the men in my family have been this shape for generations. Only a short while ago, it would have been the norm of course.

We eat well but very rarely sit down. We don't have a TV and leisure is usually active. It seems unlikely that members of this forum sit on their bums either but I do find it surprising how people have become so much larger. Ten years ago, when we came to France as visitors, most people here were slim. Now I look around the supermarket car park and all I see are blobs. I also see inside the supermarket that the food has become much more americanised like the UK.

I reckon its mostly down to the food, cheap (ha!) quick and easy seems to be the mantra. I think I'll stay skinny ta. Better than eating the pap served up nowadays. Fortunately, most of our staples are home grown so its straight from mud to plate. Most years its from dust to plate but like the UK, its been a bit wet this year :shock:
