So, I'm 23, 5 ft 8, Size 16/18, my weight is currently around the 20 stone mark. Which puts my BMI at 42.5. I've been a bigger girl all my life but when I see pictures of other women that are my weight they're a lot bigger than me! My weight doesn't hinder my professional abilities which are within Singing and Music but since graduating from University and trying to work in Music and I've come to realise I'm not going to get employed in particular jobs if i don't get my weight down. I've recently applied to work in the Army as a musician for troops and to do this I would actually have to complete initial Army training which would require me to have a BMI of 30 or less.
Having already told you my weight... This seems almost impossible. But also I don't understand my size compared to my weight? I thought I maybe just had a lot of muscle but according to the machine at the gym i'm 42% fat?
Help me i'm baffled
