Around 91kg. I guess it depends how tall you are. I'm 188cm/103kg and I'm not obese. Besides the small beer belly I'm in good shape.

I'm old and fat and plan on at least two plates of turkey with all the trimmings today. Hopefully at least one piece of pie after that too. Happy Thanksgiving all.

Got to step up the fat shaming. Or have more controls over what is able to be called food. Doesn't help that food stamps allow people to buy soda, cookies and ice cream. Couldn't hurt to allow only purchase of healthy foods.
