this contains weight and numbers please dont read if u feel may be triggering.
At college we today started having sessions with a personal trainer, as a group in order to help improve our stamina for our next production (physical theatre and contains loads of dance).
He weight us on a special machine which works out weight, muscle mass, bone density, water percentage, metabolic age etc, etc.
I weighd 8st 8llbs but had a BMI of 13.5. To me this sounds impossible, I've always been told 18.5 is underwight and below 17 is low enough to class as anorexic.
The trainer doesnt know about my ed but said that a BMI of 13.5 is excellent, thats what the top athletes are/aim (apparently athletes aim for between 12-16) for and thats what he would like to be.
I want to feel quite proud but feel fat and ashamed of weight at same time yet I know it must be wrong my bmi surely cant be that???? I done the test twice but it has to be a mistake??? dont know wat to think???
please wright back.
