    My BMI is always about 32-34. I'm 5"2" 125 lbs.
    That BMI says I'm obese.
    I think it's lying.

    It is lying. I am the same height, weigh about 120, and my BMI is much lower.

    Yes, I just looked up a BMI calculator and it said BMI is 23.
    I have a scale that gives weight and BMI. That scale is calculating it at 33 or 34%.

    What is; "BSA Measured"? Mine is 2 m2

    The chart tells you what your BMI should be. You doctor can tell you what it actually is. Although I don't like the way doctors measure it, usually with a caliper, which isn't accurate, imo. They're supposed to weigh you while you're submerged in water, but even that method is not considered the most accurate.

    It sounds to me like your scale is giving you an estimate of % body fat. That's what a lot of scales do. BMI is not expressed in percentages. For the height and weight you posted, 5'2" 125 lbs. 23 is the correct BMI.

    That would be how to measure percent body fat, not BMI. BMI is a pretty simple number to calculate. Percent body fat is way more complex.

    I get it....but I liked it better when I thought that it was 23.
