“I’m not going to let some outdated calculator and a middle school gym teacher tell me I’m obese”
Indiana eighth grader Tessa Embry just shut it down!
The student penned a letter to her middle school gym teacher explaining why she wouldn’t be calculating her body mass index (BMI) for a class project, claiming the method was outdated.
Tessa had been asked to previously calculate her BMI in class and at that time was informed that she was technically ‘obese.’ After a visit to her family doctor, who said she was perfectly healthy and athletic, Tessa decided she was done with the BMI scale.
