G’s Driver’s License Weight Challenge – BMI and Day 55 Results


One thing I never mentioned was my height, which is a very important factor. If I grew much taller than when I was 16, my goal weight may not be realistic. Unfortunately, I’ve actually shrunk! At 5’1, I’m about three-quarters of an inch shorter than when I first got my driver’s license (and, yes, three-quarters of an inch for us short girls is a big deal!).

Anyway, BMI stands for Body Mass Index, which is my weight in kilograms divided by the square of my height in meters. Depending on what my BMI is, I can be considered underweight, normal, overweight, or obese. I am so proud to say that I went from overweight to normal today!
