The BMI scale is flawed. You can be overweight and STILL be healthy... Ugh.

mmm...I'm chubby, but my parents say I'm
healthy? am I obese? I eat my five a day, exercise at least once a week, so I'm generally healthy. There's nothing wrong with a few treats once in a while, but still....

If you want to burn fat and watch tv, try Wii Fit free step. You can do step aerobics and watch tv at the same time!

Being obese put individuals at a higher risk of health problems, but two new studies published today call this realization into a question. The studies indicated that the BMI scale might not be a correct health predictor. Related article I read: BMI and obesity may not predict health problems . Realization that we should not rely on just one medical test with regards to our health.

I don't think I'm obese, but I do think I am overweight.
There are a bunch of haters out there, that pick on me because I'm chubby. Haters: How would you like it I
you were overweight or obese? That's already bad
enough (I'm a witness), but imagine if you were being
picked on, too! ( I again, am a witness of how it feels. )

Would You Consider Yourself to be Obese?

  • Yes.
  • No.
  • I don't know.
  • No, but I could afford to lose a few pounds.

B-who-u-r-and-SING
My best friend and I were really close before and hung out all the time, we were both in musicals and both got smaller parts, and if one of us got a bigger part, it was her. Then she took voice lessons with an amazing voice teacher and got a little better, she took lessons for about two weeks and then I decided to take lessons too. After about three weeks people were saying that I was an amazing singer and all of the sudden my maybe-best-friend hardly talks to me. She always seems really sad. (Keep in mind that my friend can't sing well) I don't know if she is jealous or what, and please don't think that i'm conceited by thinking she might be jealous I am just wondering. Please help!

I almost always get along with my cousin but sometimes I burst. my grandma always somehow finds out what I want and gives it my cousin and if my parents are around she treats us equally and that is another thing that makes me mad is she acts like the best grandma in front of my parents but the second they are gone she is a different person
