  1. Mine is 19.6 on average these days, but there's like no fat on my body, and muscle clearly weighs a lot more than fat, so I'm actually much skinnier than those numbers would imply. Does this still mean that I'm a healthy weight? Don't you need to know where the weight is coming from, in order to properly judge if I'm too skinny?
