Technically "morbidly obese" is defined as a BMI btwn 45 & 50.<quoted text>
Yes, I'm sure that being morbidly obese had nothing to do with it. A fit, healthy person would have reaped the benefits of stress relief that comes with exercise, looked and felt better, and saved hundreds if not thousands of dollars in healthcare costs. But you choose to blame a teenager.*rolls eyes*
5'5" 240#=~40 - well UNDER that classification.
Not that I am a fan of BMI. It is a far too simplistic measure and does not fit all body types. It fails to take lean body mass, bone density etc into consideration.
AND why does everyone assume that unhappiness is the RESULT of weight rather than the CAUSE?
