Not in terms of accountability cos Im not really all for that stuff but in general terms, high bmi would be 25 plus. To me youd be normal weight bmi wise, Im a higher bmi person and when I see people around your bmi I do feel a bit confuseded lolol especially cos it makes my ed brain think oh so Ill still be high bmi at that bmi lol but thats just me, Id say if youre gonna do the sites accountabilities go to the normal one

 

Hope you are okay though stay safe xx

I'd class a higher bmi as anything over 25. Between 20-25 would probably only really be considered higher in the anorexia forum since it's a normal bmi. Even then, I see people with a higher bmi/normal bmi post in the anorexia forum often.

 

But post wherever to be honest lol.

25+ imo. that doesnt exclude you from posting here though, but it does kind of make me feel resentful that you think thats a high bmi. but that has nothing to do with you, its a me issue, you're welcome to post wherever you feel comfortable in. after all, we all have similar goals when it comes down to it

There's loads of people in the anorexia forum with BMIs of 20-30 because often if people recover it can segue into BED before recovering fully, or it's people who have anorexic behaviours but due to things like starting weight or muscle mass are not underweight.
The Ednos and bulimia forums are also full of these BMIs
I would classify a higher BMI as over 25, and honestly, the only way you can legitimately say you're almost overweight is if your BMI is over 24.
Having said that, you should use whichever forum you feel comfortable in.

I guess high BMI is whatever you view it as. I classify it as Overweight BMI+ myself. It gets a little frustrating for me personally trying to find similar BMIs and a lot of the bmi posts being normal or low. Itโ€™s like the High BMIs get lost in normal BMIs.

Youโ€™re obviously still allowed to post, itโ€™s not like anyone is gonna shun you haha, not even my irritable ass. Itโ€™s however you view a high bmi and weโ€™re all gonna have different opinions of it.
