Good for you, insurance rates should absolutely be correlated to your state of health and physical fitness. So irritating when you’re in a corporate office where everyone pays the same for health insurance coverage, meanwhile you see the fats are always taking days off because of “illness” and constantly leaving to go to doctor appointments.

Seriously! I really hope that this insurance method becomes standard practice!

My company makes tobacco users pay more, makes sense to do the same for the fatties too. So many of them that I work with have issues like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea and would rather take meds or other treatment than actually make lifestyle changes.

That won't happen because the policymakers are full on fatties.

Invite them to prove how healthy they are using any other method they like. Ask them if they want to jog around the block, do a few push-ups, measure their waist:height ratio, or go for a DEXA scan. I hate the arguments they use against BMI, but I hate the way they avoid any other, more accurate and less forgiving measure even more.

Vending machine fattie loudly pronounced that if I lost any more weight I would become anorexic

...what?

TIL if you get below a certain weight, BOOM! ANOREXIA.

This is the same guy who came to work high on cold medication. During the day he told me that I would get diabetes if i didn't eat more sugar. Even the hams around him raised their eyebrows in disbelief.

Even the hams raised their eyebrows, then they silently thought to themselves "but just maybe he's right!"

The BMI reeing is incredible. Sometimes I hate it, other times it is funny. It is true it is not the best for some people. But those outliers are athletes, not hams. Like, some nfl players are solid muscle and have high BMIs. They are the outliers. Not the rotund HR rep who drinks three sodas a day. They realize this deep down but it is a convenient excuse I guess.

My work has something similar and BMI is pretty fair. I, who has a lot of heart problems due to birth defects, get cheaper insurance due to being a normal BMI - lol. The company I work for actually gives me a discount despite my cardiac issues because I’m still normal BMI as compared to somebody morbidly obese. It’s amusing. All the fats at my job constantly scream how unfair it is.

This is exactly how insurance fees should be structured. Punish unhealthy lifestyle choices, but not conditions out of people's control.

"...And if you gained any more weight you'd be this building." PLEASE say it next time to the fat ass.

I am so fucking tired of being called anorexic. My cancer meds can make my stomach bloat out, really bad gas, and I will mention that I feel like I am fat because of it. Gas doesn't make the scale move, so I am not fat, just feel like it. I get people bitching at me saying I must have an eating disorder and all that shit. I associate fat with negative feelings because it is negative. I am bloated, so I feel shitty like I would if I was fat
