Enough is enough

My BMI is 31. I'm no longer just overweight, I'm officially obese. I've been gradually gaining weight since I stopped working in the hospitality business (where I walked/ran 5 miles a day easily). I'm watching my food, I'm doing dance steps but it's not enough.

- I still had a voucher somewhere for 4 weeks of professional-personal-coach-by-email. I just mailed it.
- I made an appointment with my doctor, thursdaymorning 8 a.m.

I hope there's something he can help me with. My basic health insurance covers 4 hours of dietary-consults a YEAR! And no compensation if I'd want to go to an obesity-clinic. I *could* beef up my health insurance, but I'd rather see what my options are right now.

I know I'll never be slim. My entire family is heavily-built, my digestive system works slowly, I'm OK with that. But right now just the feel of that weight that I carry around is messing with my good mood. For my own sanity, I must lose 5kg, I should lose 10kg and I'd love to lose 20kg.

BMI was never intended to indiscriminately gouge people's healthy weight. BMI means shit, someone can be "obese" or "underweight" and still be healthy, BMI cannot be used to accurately predict an individual's ideal weight.
So fuck BMI.

What you should do is get your fat percentage measured, it's a really simple process that some gyms can do for you.
