I Should Still Lose Some Weight

I heard about this on the Osgood File yesterday and got this reference today from Instapundit. Apparently, obesity is not nearly so likely to kill you as had been previously announced. In fact, people who are a little bit overweight appear to live longer than people of "normal" weight.

Remembering that normal weight has been revised down during my lifetime, this makes me wonder if perhaps it's time to revise the weight charts up just a bit. Mind you, just a bit still means that I need to lose a substantial amount of poundage...
