The following is such a prime example of the idiocy and asshattery of basic health and wellness here in the US that I feel compelled to mention it. I just received mail from Julianna’s school and when I opened it, behold, it was a summary of her height and weight yadda yadda yadda.
It didn’t take long for me to notice her bmi was in the 70 percentiles.
Upon further examination, she had gone from 65 inches in eighth grade to 64 inches in ninth grade.
A few thoughts; do these people not know that teenagers don’t generally shrink.
Girls tend to be sensitive about weight and bmi without this.
Bone density and muscle mass will add to bmi without increasing dress size.
Julianna is healthy and active. She is also 57 inches tall, weight unknown, and wears anything from a 00 to a size 2.
