Ok slightly confused on this whole BMI issue vs weight, vs actual activity. According to the BMI scale I am classed as obese. now I have lost 1st 6lbs in a year in slow time and without a diet based purely on increased activity. I am 172cm now weigh 15st and aged 50. I run times a week, total circa 10 miles, I ensure I do 12k to 15k steps a day, I play football on a Monday and football train on a Thursday, in essence I have max 2 rest days a week. So I know fat turns to muscle and weighs more, so have lost weight, exercise for approx 10 hours a week but BMI says I am obese, something is not stacking up here?
