Patient: Doc, the problem is obesity runs in my family.

Doctor: No, the problem is no one runs in your family.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

"People are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight in kilograms by the square of the person's height in metres, exceeds 30 kg/m2."

BMI is an inaccurate method of determining obesity.
Live forever or die trying.

Mirror is very subjective and I have no friends.  :'(
That's perfect! Friends tend to lie to you too make you feel good, if you come to me on the other hand, I'll be glad to give you a brutally honest assessment...

I know what you mean. I once told someone I lost 15 pounds and she told me to turn around I would find it.  >:(

ALOL!
BMI is an inaccurate method of determining obesity.

It may not be perfect, but it is a decent starting point for determining overall fitness. To paraphrase CV find a better objective measure and you can be famous :)
