    thank you. and just for fun i did both of it. the difference in the result is negotiable, or basically nothing. so is it just another moneymaker?

    I am apparently bordering 'obese'! LOL!

    What that BMI does not seem to take into account is bone density, or muscle weight!

    Surely it should ask a question about the body type?

    Apparently, I (168 cm) could weigh up to 70.8 kg and still be, um, healthy!

    i did read both sites. filled in both numbers and checked..
    and now, as before, i carry on with my life, happy with the weight and the slight spare tire.. come summer now and in a month or so it will be all gone.as every year.
