I mentioned in one of the Shangri-La posts that measures of BMI, for all their faults, are a more accurate measure for me than looking in the mirror — or looking at my kids. Turns out there's a study on this subject:
Americans believe their fellow Americans have gotten fat. They consider this a serious national problem. But when they think about weight, they appear to use different scales for different people. Nine-in-ten American adults say most of their fellow Americans are overweight. But just seven-in-ten say this about "the people they know." And just under four-in-ten (39%) say they themselves are overweight.
I'm hopeless when it comes to accurate perceptions of whether my kids are or are not overweight.
