Am I obese?

Well I must have asked myself this question long time ago! So I asked myself this question today. I was glancing over an article in about sudden surge in weight-loss surgeries in India. These surgeries are called “Bariatric Surgeries”. You can read the news story here:

All these days I was worried about my belly and my *looks*. I have accepted the notion that I am obese. After reading the article I desparately wanted to know how obese was I? How bad is my obesity??! Should I undergo a weight loss op!?!

I went to the website: . I guess the ndtv article was about these people who lead the weight-loss op industry in India. These people offered to explain obesity as per BMI (Bio Mass Index). So I punched in my numbers and found out that my BMI was 29. This is dangerously close to the text book definition of OBESE. But still, heck, I am not obese. I will be obese if my BMI hits the 30 and 30+ scale.

With my present life style I am sure that I can easily touch 30. Now I am not at all worried about looks. I believe the concept of looks is for teenagers. All I am focused is about being healthy. Having a healthy diet. I decreased my weight to know what is the right weight for my height. I think I would settle for a BMI of 23. That is 68 KGs for my height. So that is 17 Kg less than my present weight. I am not concerned about the part of my body which is going to shed 17 Kg. It may be my belly or my butt or my breast. I don’t really care. All I care is that I must shed 17 Kg.

The answer to my question, scientifically: NO. I am a student of science and I would take that answer and strive to get close to the magic figure of “23”.



Loving my life @ Coimbatore. Loving my new branch. Loving the coordination I am getting from colleagues. So far so good! Plus the house in which I am staying in a very serene place. I am sharing wall with a young family.

I have started my own company: Bharat Inc. on 14.07.2013. This should become RED Letter day in my life.

Coimbatore greeted me with another failure. I have an untold story between me and Coimbatore. I have had this story in my mind for a long long time. I think it is my destiny to work in Coimbatore.

I walked 5 KM one day. I like to continue the same in my future.

My future is nothing but tomorrow. I have to believe in this policy. if I can be perfect today, then I can build my dreamy tomorrow.

I have very very poor determination. I am highly inconsistent. This has been the reason for most of my losses. I wanna change this. I really want to change this.

I like to start to develop good rapo with Deepu. I feel very sad for her. Its really bad that she made a bad choice. I really can’t understand why she has done it. I want her to succeed in her life. She has to pass her MBA in flying colours. Deepu loves about style, food, movies etc I can start talking sweetly with Deepu. I need not hide my love while I talk to her. Same is the case with mom. I must really talk with my heart.

I think that’s it. There is no need for any brainy thing related to this.

So thats a problem settled I guess.

I leave the results of my profession endeavours to the Almighty God. 99% it is in my hands. I have been not studying for ages. Its like 8 yrs that I have studied rigorously. I think its high time I start studying sincerely.

So lemme study!
