That's good progress!

If I weighed that much though, I'd probably just stop eating (except the bare minimum). I don't like weighing more than 140 pounds. (I used to be 120.) Also think of all the $$$'s saved.

The only procedures that use needles and no cutting to treat chronic pains that I'm aware is Chinese acupuncture.

So basically you are using microwaves to kill the nerves that sense pain.

Ironically Ive had many doctors tell me the pain is in my head. A dr that specialises in arthritis said I do not have arthritis, but inflammation at the top of the charts when I get blood tests.

Surprising of all is when I visit the massage kios at the mall how the person can zero in on the painful areas and work them over. Some of these people do not understand english, but they seem to have a 6th sense to know where and to work it.

Ive mention this to my regular doctor, the one who claims Im just fat n lazy and he says I just like chinese massages.

But how tall are you? If you're 6' or more, 140 lbs is starvation territory.

Hey, everybody! Le's use pseudoscience! Yay!

I just used Calculate Your BMI - Standard BMI Calculator to "calculate" my "body mass index."

Except, we are using weight, not mass, and not really indexing my body. I am thirty-five years old, 6'2", and 201 libras: 25.9.

BMI Categories:
Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Wait, I am overweight?! I meet Army standards!

BMI is not so specific about the amount of body fat, muscle mass, or other aspects.

Do you think this is an American thing? It seems the American medical system always needs stuff to worry the public over, advertise to them they need to ask their doctor for a test, then get a prescription for a pill to fix it.

I loved it a few years ago where people were having their kids cholesterol checked.
