BMI is a really bad way to determine the health of someone. I have an overweight BMI (about 190 cm, about 95 kg). This is because I played a lot of (American) football growing up and I ended up "bulking" (that is, gaining large amounts of muscle and fat) for each season, then slowly whittling away the fat in the offseasons. Yet, I'd still go to the doctors and get that....

Whatever. I'd rather live a happy 60 than a miserable 90 anyway. Besides, my genetics are good (my grandparents all lived past 75, one of them past 85), so as long as I don't start eating McDonald's every day or start smoking and binge drinking, I'll be ok. I figure I've already lived a happier 20 than most people in the world get to. I'll take whatever I get.

Actually, a study found that overweight people who exercise are more fit than their skinny counterparts who don't. So yeah, being healthy doesn't necessarily mean you have the ideal IBM. =) And if he said your vital signs are good, you have normal cholesterol levels, normal blood glucose levels, then you're absolutely fine.

Congrats on finding this doctor! I was at the hospital recently and I kept on getting the side eye after listening my health conditions, it was always "No diabetes? No high blood pressure? High Cholesterol?" NOPE.

I moved and now I'm at a new doctor so the dance has started again, at least this one is listening to my concerns about my thyroid (family history).

Conversely, my Husband and his family are naturally very skinny people despite their very bad dietary habits (lots of junk food, soda, etc) yet the topic of diet never comes up with them whenever they visit the doctor.

When my husband started living with me he got a lot healthier and a lot of his health problems lessened.

That's great! It's nice to hear of a doctor that actually takes your health (as proven by testing) into consideration! :)

First time my doctor said this to me I went home and had a little sit down because I was in shock.

I am in the same boat as you, Humon. Although I have a mild case of PCOS with some hormonal imbalances, I weigh between 250-260 lbs, my vital signs are lower than the average person with a baseline weight of 150lbs. I like eating and I walk around town, only using the bus when I shouldn't push my limits.

My parents were much like the doctor in mentioning "You would look nicer in a smaller body with matching clothes" and this is at a point where I didn't know whether to smack them with lips or my throwing hand from my days at the Phoenix Academy in the industrial park in town I lived in 10 years ago.

Sometimes doctors can be douchebags, jerks, bastards, you name it, they won't care about you if you're a constant customer.

I am the skinny-fat type, so I never know if I should lose or gain weight, and apparently doctors don't know it either -.-"

Sounds like an amazing doctor to me :) I'm sure you'll adjust happily and you'll be very happy with him as your doctor! :)
