    Don't worry about your BMI. That is for the average Joe and it doesn't take in consideration of the amount of lean mass you have.
    Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV
    Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
