Out of curiosity, I decided to see what my BMI is at 195. I used a BMI Calculator at a friend's website. Remember, a BMI isn't the only number that matters. Body builders often have a BMI in the obese range. According to the calculator, my BMI is 25.7, which is barely in the overweight category. To get to the top end of the normal range, I need to get to 189. That is only six pounds, I think I can manage that.
I've started running a few times a week, as this spring I want to be able to run a 5K with a few friends of mine. I'm really enjoying it even though I'm a running novice. I also do a circuit workout from a DVD workout called Power 90. That's the workout I used the most over the summer, it worked really well. I'm enjoying the mix of the two at the moment. Wish me luck!
