Take her in for a checkup ASAP. You don't have to tell her that it's about weight, but the doc should know of your concern. If she's fine, nothing lost beyond an hour of your time. But if she does have a health problem or an eating disorder, and you don't act on it earlier rather than later, you'll have to carry that guilt with you.

The BMI charts are from the CDC. https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/

Did I say BMI? No.

I said height and weight. Which were originally created by life insurance companies.

Let me know where I said life insurance companies created BMI formula. /eyeroll/

Haha - so pretty much completely irrelevant to the conversation. Jo48 was talking about "Waist and Hip" measurements, not even "height and weight".

Oh my mistake. I'll ask you next time what information I can or cannot post.

Good grief. Maybe take your own advice and stop worrying about other people?

Height/weight tables (including measuring height with shoes on) have been supplanted by BMI.
