I appreciate the insightful and important things your muffin top has to say to me, but my thunder thighs still think they’re fat.
I’m overweight (sometimes).
On a BMI scale, I fluctuate in and out of the dreaded “overweight” category. While I acknowledge that the BMI scale has its flaws, it was designed to be a quick approximation of weight to height; it is not designed to be a scientific test. Sometimes I tell myself I am super muscular and the scale doesn’t apply to me, but it’s actually not true. [excerpt]
