Some overweight people have lower risk of death, study finds

I have always argued with my nutritionist (::cough:: patrol officer of four years to be exact) that I can be healthy for my body at my weight, despite the fact that it is low and statistically "unhealthy." I read the following article today in the newspaper. While I agree with it to an extent, my mind refuses to accept a normal weight as being acceptable for me. Does anyone know of any opposing information to support the idea that it can be ok to be at a lower than average or anorexic BMI?
