Would you accept a donor with a high BMI?

Hi ladies, I'm doing a shared cycle and a proven donor was offered to me who's already been matched with another couple. She's great except that she is 5'5" and 192 pounds - she actually used to weigh more and has been losing weight. With the BMI calculator she's in the obese range. It doesn't seem to be affecting her hormonally, no other health issues and her previous cycle produced twins, but I'm worried about the possible genetic link with weight in regard to what my child might inherit. The donor coordinator said that it's hard to tell if its genetics or just learned eating habits.

What do you think?
