BBM started a thread on post-Christmas blues and one of the themes that emerged was people's desire to lose some weight. I set myself the target of losing 20kg to get me to a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25, which is considered healthy for most people. To calculate your BMI take your weight in kg, divide by your height in metres then divide by your height again so: Weight in kg 109.5, divide by height in m 1.9 = 57.63, divide again = 30.3 I should state that there are many diets, clubs and methods to enable weight loss and if in doubt about your need to lose then consult your GP. The idea of the thread is to report your targets, successes, lapses, hints and tips. I have managed to lose 0.5kg, only 19.5 to go!
