    Default BMI & waist measurements

    When we first got PR we were both just inside the required BMI & waist measurement criteria. As we are planning to return this is the one area that I think we may fall down on. We both are just slightly over - by about 1 point on the BMI & similar on the waist. Has anyone had this problem? What happened if you were just slightly over but otherwise in good health? Will this cause a problem? We are trying to reduce but unfortunately age is not on our side and as much as I try it makes no difference.

    Hi Nicky

    I guess, if the examing doc thinks it's a problem, the first line of fire would be to test your blood sugars to make sure you aren't diabetic. There may be some other tests they do as well, but simply being a bit over the weight limit shouldn't exclude you from getting in. If you were grossly overweight, I think you'd be given time to get your weight down. Other than that, it would be put before the Medical Examiner.

    Oh well - all is not lost then. Now if I could just shift a few stubborn pounds then all would be well - as long as I can continue to eat, drink and be merry as normal

    Ah now, that's where the problem lies. Why do all the things we love to eat and drink so often have a bad impact on us ? There's a bad design fault in the human race somewhere along the line. I think you can be as merry as you like without putting any weight on, but it's how you go about it that causes the problem . Such is life.
