So she weighed me and measured my height. Typical nurse shizz.
But then… THEN the bitch pulls out this BMI chart and tells me that I am overweight, gives me a sheet with the “dangers” of being overweight, and a list of things to do to lose weight.
First of all, there are doctors that actually take BMIs seriously? I could’ve sworn the use of BMIs to measure anything significant was discredited a while ago.
Secondly, I have never been a victim of sizeism before. I mean, most people don’t see a “fat” person when they look at me, so there were never any grounds for it. But it sucked that this stupid bitch just assumed that I was unhealthy and at risk for all that shit just because I’m “overweight.”
Do you not realize that there are skinny people out there with “healthy” BMIs that eat nothing but Hot Cheetos and drink nothing but Arizonas all day every day? I eat very healthy meals and I work out AT LEAST 4 times a week, at least 2 hours each day.
BMIs are a ratio of your height and weight, or something like that. It does not take into account how you are built or what percentage of your weight is actually fat! What if I weighed what I weighed but was all muscle? Would you still consider me overweight and at risk for all those diseases and ailments then? BMIs don’t make any sense, and they DEFINITELY shouldn’t be used to indicate health.
Stupid ass bitch.
And lastly, bitch you are shorter than me and fatter than me. WHY DON’T YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THAT FUCKING SHEET?!
