    I'm starting to realize that I'm... dense.

When I was done working in Alaska I was 190lbs. I have pictures from that time where my ribs are visible and I have exposed and very noticeable hip bones. 32" pants. The BMI chart says i should be 170. That ain't gonna happen. I'd be a walking skeleton at 170.

Have you ever been swimming in fresh water, like a pool? Do you float or sink? I sink. When I went through the safety crap on the ship I learned that there are different grades of life vests based on what floats you. I needed the second from the top to float me without treading water.

Oooh! That's interesting!

The only time I have EVER floated, was in the Mediterranean... very high salinity, so greater buoyancy.

I was a husky kid and I floated. Then I became bulimic and I sank.

Now I bike 150 miles a week. I sink like a stone.
