Luckily nowadays there’s plenty of tools (read: scale) which can help you get your BMI scoring without the hassle of doing the calculation. All you need to do is just step into the scale, and they are doing the rest for you.

I, myself, have been using Mi Scale combined with Mi Fit App – both are made by Xiaomi – to not only calculate the BMI for me, but also syncing, storing and keeping my BMI history and giving me good dashboard to see my measures in one glance.

BMI the greatest wealth is health
The greatest wealth is nothing but your own health!

Like what this poster told us, the greatest wealth is health. S0 for those who fall under obese and overweight categories what have you done to achieve your own health and at the same time in a great shape? Same question goes to those fall under underweight and even normal categories. For those under Normal category, just because your BMI falls under normal, doesn’t mean you don’t need to do exercise – you should too!

I was doing Uber Food Delivery last time – but since it was closing down here in Singapore, I’m still looking alternative ways how I can get healthy and at the same time motivated to do it.
