do you have "normal weight obesity"?

Today's Wall Street Journal had an interesting article about how even if you are "normal" weight a high fat percentage can increase your risk of various health problems.

Sadly, the five pounds I gained this fall doing the birth control pills before my stimulation (including the extra month due to scheduling difficulties, argh!) were all fat according to my fancy-schmancy Tanita scale (Tanita BC554 Ironman Glass InnerScan Body Composition Monitor Elite Series), and have now gone into the high range according to this article.  Yikes!

At least I spent 1.5 hours at the gym today.  Am trying to get back in shape!
