Well, I just finished calculating her BMI using my handy-dandy children's BMI calculator (from CDC, thank you!). Turns out we have a LOT of small steps to take in order to get Ellie out of the "may be obese" category, and into the "may be overweight" category. At this age and height Ellie needs to weight 47 lbs 0 oz. in order to get to a "may be overweight" BMI category. That's a net loss of 7.2 lbs. Okey-dokey, let's get to work mom!!
