I thought I was headed towards morbid obesity back when I worked full-time at a country buffet restaurant. I ate as much heavy Southern food as I wanted every day. I went to one of those scales that calculates BMI, and I was shocked to learn I was only in the obese range, not morbid. I thought I was dangerously overweight, but my BMI was 32. Of course I went on a diet after seeing the numbers, but I wasn't having any mobility issues or heart problems.
