Question about Health & Beauty
My students are always surprised when I tell them that obese people have stronger bones. The only problem is that this advantage is offset by the fact that joints simply cannot hold up to extra weight. Extra weight is very hard on the joints. In fact, for every pound you take off your body, it works out to two pounds off your knees.
One of the most interesting things to do is to watch people. When people are heavy, their knees give out.

Really, Amy? None of the four numbers you cite in your question changes the answer, which you already know is YES, your health is at risk. Can you walk a mile without problems? Have you had your blood sugar checked? At 5'3", obesity starts at 169# with a BMI of 30. You're way past that. I'm not trying to be mean, just realistic. A year ago I found myself at your weight and I knew I was in trouble if I didn't do something. My weight now is in the 130s and I expect to lose another 15#. It can be done - you just have to really want it. You have one number in your favor - 28. Start now, it'll be easier at your age than it was for me. And your skin is still resilient so you won't have to deal with sag. You'll feel better and will live more comfortably. And you'll walk that mile with a 78 blood sugar level.
