    I want to thank you for your excellent “Healthy Body Calculator” tool. It’s especially pertinent to me as I am a left leg amputee and no one – not even my doctor – took this into account when determining my BMI or appropriate goal weight. I lost 70 pounds over the last 3 years, largely through increasing my activity level and through the Weight Watchers online program. WW’s point system for food intake is fine but can slow your weight loss if you keep swapping “activity” points for extra food, as they suggest. Even more misleading is their body weight calculator which does not take individual health and body differences into account. I still have about 35 more pounds to lose to reach my ideal “healthy weight”, according to your calculator (and my body measurements). Again – thanks for keeping things real.
