Hey, i saw the other BMI calculation in the memories, and thought i would share a slightly easier way to do it, its from this GREAT site everyone should check out.  http://www.intothinair.gypsy-girl.org

How To Calculate Your B.M.I. (Body Mass Index)


1) Take your weight and multiply by 704.7
2) Take that number and divide it by your height squared (see below)

height squared:
5'0" = 3600
5'1" = 3721
5'2" = 3844
5'3" = 3969
5'4" = 4096
5'5" = 4225
5'6" = 4356
5'7" = 4489
5'8" = 4624
5'9" = 4761
5'10" = 4900
5'11" = 5041

3) The remaining number is your BMI
4) Now look below to find how you measure up:

Emaciated = UNDER 15 BMI
Anorexic = Under 17.5 BMI
Underweight = Under 19 BMI
Normal = 19 - 24 BMI
Overweight = 25 - 29 BMI
Obese = +29 BMI

Height/Weight Chart

5'2" 110 93 82 71
5'3" 115 97 86 74
5'4" 120 102 90 78
5'5" 125 106 93 81
5'6" 130 110 97 84
5'7" 135 114 101 87
5'8" 140 119 105 91
