    BMI Is 18... Am I Too Skinny?

    My friend has this little thing, where you enter your BMI [Body Mass Index, i think] and it tells you if you are underweight, overweight, or average. 18.5 is the borderline for underweight and average, and my BMI is 18! I'm not THAT skinny... right?

    Too Skinny

    I'm 6'4 and only weigh 170 lbs.  I have been as light as 160 in the past year.  I had to drink weight gainer in high school to get up to 150 lbs.  I want to be around 200 lbs. but I have to eat close to 3,000 calories a day just to keep from losing weight.

    I'm kinda under weight.

    not really bad but I wish I had a little more to fill out my curves. I dunno why but I feel pretty self conscious about it. sometimes I fell like a twig and it really grosses me out and I think people look at me and think about how I probably starve myself (I don't btw). it's...

    Actually, I'm quite fat.

    I wanted to compare my humungously round belly to someone's incredibly flat/fit stomach. Would anybody be interested in seeing just how drastic the disparity would be between their flat stomach and a really fat one?

    Like A Pencil :p

    No one is satisfied by the way they are, people who are fat wants to lose weight, and people who are skinny wants to gain weight! My mom sees me being skinny is a good thing, as I will gain weight in the future so it’s better in order to not be overweight then. But I don...

    I don't believe that I am too skinny,

    but I have had people tell that I am too skinny. For an example, my man thinks that I am too skinny. He loves my body, but he thinks that I am skinny. He said that he can see my ribs clearly. I can too, but it's not THAT visible if you get me. I eat somewhat OKAY. I always...

    days. I'm only 88 pounds, which I guess is pretty bad. I'm about 4'11", so I not sure what the average wait for that is. I used to have really bad pain in my ankles and I sometimes have back pains. But it's pretty normal in my family to be this skinny. And you can bet I'm...

    most people want to loose the weight,

    when all I want is to be at least 115 pounds. I'm a twig, the result of years of anorexic habits stemming from my self esteem issues from 9th grade. I'm starting college in two weeks, and I'm 18 years old. I look like a middle school student I swear.

    Trying To Gain Weight Without Success.

    I really am. You can almost see everyone of my

    ribs. It's gross and ugly. I didn't stare myself or anything to get this way... I guess I was just born like it. Either way I don't like it. I try to eat a lot to gain weight, but it doesn't work. It's ugly just like the rest of me.
