Douglas Spencer

I was assessed today by UK Biobank.

For ease of reference, here's the baseline data gathered today at around noon:

BP: 140/81 mmHg
Pulse: 69 bpm
Weight: 116.0 Kg (18 st 4 lb, or 256 lb)
Height: 1.77 m (5 ft 10 in)
BMI: 37.0 Kg/m2
Waist: 123 cm (48 in)
Body fat: 38.1 %

Where's fat_fanboysfat_fanboys when you need it?

I wasn't (and won't be) assessed by Biobank, as I have no faith that it's not also a DNA recruitment scheme for the police DNA dabatase. Biobank, Plod, and my local MP have all still failed to confirm that it won't be used for this.

Mr Plod has had easy access to my DNA for some considerable time, assuming he hasn't misfiled it, or contaminated it with doughnut DNA.

Tell you what, though, your BMI is a good bit lower than mine...

(I weigh less than you do, but am significantly shorter!)

I made this icon for my birthday a couple of years ago, but it could just as well be used for my BMI... or my body-fat percentage...
