I just wanted to let you know that your website evaluation ruined my day. I’ve been exercising, eating right for 5 months now and lost 20 pounds and at least 5 inches from my waist. I’m starting to look really good now. Your evaluation rated me: You are overweight. Do you know what that’s like, to come this far, and still be told you’re overweight by a silly computer? Fact is, it was 1 pound over. 1 pound. Isn’t there a way it could say, you are slightly overweight or moderately overweight? It really ticked me off. I bust ass and I get the same stuff. I’m sorry if this offended you and maybe you have no control over what is says, but I look and feel better than 75% of the rest of Americans. I can run over 3 miles straight without stopping (at 6 miles per hour). I eat healthy and low fat. I did not deserve to be told “You are overweight” by your evaluation. Thank you for your attention

    Congratulations on your weight loss and exercise program. Sorry, but computers are literal with their math calculations. I am not offended by your comments and I designed the program so I do control what it says.

    One-pound equals 1/8 gallon of water or approximately 16 ounces of water. Depending on when you weigh yourself and your fluid status, one pound is nothing. It is not unusual for the human body to vary 3 – 4 pounds within a day. So, congratulate yourself on your progress and don’t sweat your weight that much.

    If you feel good and look good and exercise, then perhaps your body fat is lower than average and more muscle. Have you ever had your body fat tested? If so, the Healthy Body Calculator® will take that measure into consideration when calculating results.
