We tend to decide whether or not we should hit the gym based on how we look in the mirror. But a new study shows that those who may feel skinny are as unhealthy as someone who’s obese.

Researchers in the Netherlands gathered data from 5,344 middle-aged and older people living in Rotterdam who reported their exercise habits, as well as their height and weight measurements to determine their body mass index. The scientists also collected information on the group’s rates of heart disease and stroke over 15 years.
