    BMI is a stupid way of figuring out if you are overweight because it doesn't take into account muscle mass. You don't look fat to me.
    If you don't feel fat then I fail to see how some random calculation could suddenly change your view of yourself.

    You can see the sweep of your quads bulging forward in that picture, and your bum jutting out.

    This is awesome!!! And I for one say kudos op, you have legs and ass that make my slinky da doing doing doing.

    In all seriousness don't worry about a thing you are in good shape.

    BMI isn't everything. It doesn't take into account lots of different factors.

    You look perfectly healthy in your photo, don't worry about it.

    Well I weighed myself at the gym yesterday and I know I have put on a bit of weight since going to uni. I am size 8-10 but according to the nhs website I have a bmi of just over 25 so therefore I am overweight? How is this possible? Looking at myself I don't look overweight and obviously below average according to my clothes size. Anyone offer an explanation or in a similar boat? I feel so disgusting now
    Your upper legs look quite strong, however your picture is somewhat poor as it does not show your waist or how broad you are which would be a good indication of weight.

    Random question, do you weightlift at all?

    If not then you should as you seem to have a fairly decent figure for squatting...
    You could do quite well and weightlifitng is good for females bodies.(Just ask Powerlifter on here)

    Nah, it's not just masculine...

    Most of the female "celebs" do weightlifitng to get the desired "curvy" figure...

    Your fine. BMI is ****, do the body fat percentage calculator, thats a better indicator.
    But honestly you look great, I wouldnt worry. If you wanna lose weight just cut out sweet stuff. I've lost almost half a stone after giving up chocolate for lent... and i didnt weigh that much to start with. Im sure there must be other factors but not that i've noticed lol.
    Cool it, if your a size 8 then don't worry!

    I hope you mean getting it measured properly, on-line calculators are ridiculous.

    You definitely do not look overweight, it depends on your muscle mass and your bone density

    You look very healthy and slim in your picture so I wouldnt worry about it
