When I went to a doctor and stepped onto a scales for the first time in about 3 years, I was totally upset about the change in my weight. I could tell my clothes fit differently, but the numbers made it real for me. I was discussing his with my boyfriend. For the record, I had gone from 130# to 115#. I am 5'2". I was discussing how to gain back up to my previous weight in a healthy way, when he said that actually I need to lose a few more pounds. A dietician put me close to the top of tje perfect BMI, which is 101-120#, and essentially agreed with my bf. I am floored. I know personally that I do better above 120#, but everyone else seems to buy into that skinny is best mindset. I'm a recovering anorexic. It seems that the nuts are running the nuthouse.
Edit:. The dietician/nutritionist was at Mayo Clinic, and at 115# I am a size 3/4, not all that large. Unfortunately, all the clothes I have are size 6, and don't fit now. I'm good with being a size 6 myself.
