Weighty matters

Ten minutes ago, I was elated: by finally deigning to use one of those infernal treadmills at my physiotherapist's, and noticing that it displayed weight, heart rate and time in flickering red LEDs, I found out I currently weigh in at 75 kg exactly. 75 kilos*! That means that over the summer, I've lost 15!

That was before I logged on to the web and calculated that my BMI is 26, which means that I'm still overweight. Apparently, there's another 15 to come off before I reach the ideal weight for my height. :(

* 75 kg= 165.3466966387 lb; 15 kg = 33.0693393277 lb

For instance, I'm 164 cm, and even when I was very fit and weighed 56 kg, my BMI was 20.8 which is a bit higher than 18.5, which is the lower limit for healthy weight at my height. Currently, I weigh around 60-61 kg, I guess. Need to exercise more, but that's really for my heart's sake, not the weight as such.
