    How Obese are you?

    I was reading about the % of ppl who game and how most of them are in the obese category :/..

    How obese are you

    1. 10-25lbs over.

    2. 25-50lbs over.

    3. 50-100lbs over.

    4. 100+ overweight.

    I'm not sure how this pertains to WoW general discussion?

    Honestly, that's just some fox media sterotype. Yeah some people that play might be overweight but as a majority, we're all pretty normal. :b

    As for me, I'm adding on option 5. BMI is normal, not overweight

    Especially as the BMI doesnt really apply to those on the weird ends of the spectrum. Like those whose weight would make them Obese, but when you look at them thats the last thing you think due to body type.

    Anyways Im about 30 lbs overweight. Trying to lose it, but my bf is the exact opposite of me (he's extremely skinny) so its a delicate balance of me losing weight while he gains some.

    Well, first off, 10-25 lbs overweight is NOT considered obese. 25-50 might not even be, I'm not sure. That being said, I'm morbidly obese at 150lbs + overweight. I'm also trying to correct this fact, I've lost almost 50 pounds in the past 3 months. It sucks losing weight, but it also sucks not being able to walk up stairs without having a heart attack.

    Last time I checked I was 30lbs underweight and have been like that since I was 15, doesnt matter what or how much I eat

    I am an amateur bodybuilder and boxer, and still play WoW.

    You can see my facebook here:

    Last time I checked I stood at 9% body fat.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    I like how you don't have an option for "not obese," or even, "underweight."

    I'm probably about 15 lbs. more than I'd like to be right now, but I don't fall into the obese category. I weigh 235 lbs, and "perfect" BMI for me is around 220 lbs. I'm 6'5".

    She was the best damned woman that I ever seen
    She had the sightless eyes, telling me no lies
    And knocking me out with those American thighs

    Right! I'm a little big boned so to some I appear like a bigger guy. But I eat right, do my old lacrosse work-outs, etc.



    @Youvegotfail: Keep up the great work then! If you ever need some motivation check out towelliee on Twich.tv ; He's doing something similar

    I don't think this is an acceptable topic. Obesity is a very sensitive subject and creating a thread that is, to us, designed to make fun of those who are overweight isn't appropriate. Nevermind the assertion that "most people who game are obese"
