performance: losing 0.6 lb a week

I'm a divorced Dad in my 40s with a couple of kids. I was always trying to gain weight in my youth and weighed as much as a lean 275 lbs on a 6'6" frame. Played football at Oregon and then when I was done there, I dropped all the way to 220 lbs. Didn't pay attention to my eating habits and over the next 10+ years and I lost my CYA metabolism in my late 30s and have weighed as much as 250 again. Now my goal is to be maintain around 225-235 and convert the little fat I do have into muscle. I love the app and this site as far as keeping me honest on my snacking. When I really use this tool, I lose weight.

Why the BMI (Body Mass Index) Chart is USELESS
Pencil me into the category of the OP. I'm just north of 6'6". I haven't weighed less than 225 since high school but have always been considered skinny (I was playing offensive line in football). I've been as much as 275 and now I'm back down to 235 after being 250 on 4/27 of this year. BMI says I'm still a fat a$$ but I'm feeling ribs and maybe getting a little too gaunt. It can certainly be hard to find a measurement or ideal weight target that works visually and physically for someone of my height.
