Pink: I'm Supposedly 'Obese,' and That's Crazy
Pink has a message for new moms.   (Instagram)

Pink had her second child in December, and she just posted an image of herself at the gym on Instagram. No, she's not sporting a magically slim celeb body, and that's her point, notes E! Online. "Would you believe I'm 160 pounds and 5'3"? By 'regular standards' that makes me obese," she writes. "I know I'm not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2 but dammit I don't feel obese." She adds that "the only thing I'm feeling is myself," and ends with advice to women who might be stressing under similar circumstances: "Stay off that scale ladies!" (By federal standards, a 5-foot-3-inch person is obese at 169 pounds.) A blogger at Scary Mommy agrees that BMI can offer a misleading picture of health. "Kudos to Pink for speaking out and making all of us 'obese' women feel a little less alone." (Click to see a photo of Pink's new baby.)
