Common sense: "body mass index" is junk science if applied to individuals; hugh jackman is "overweight" and john cena is "obese". If your physician is with me on this, i'd urge you to continue exercising, continue losing weight, and enjoying your commitment to health. The hemoglobin a1c will take care of itself. We pathologists say, "look at the person, not the numbers." cheers.
