I did it, I'm Overweight!

Yes, that's right... I am technically not obese anymore! BMI 29.8 as of this morning that's Overweight baby! Woot! Feels fabulous!

225# 9-7-12
179# 1-18-13

Let me just say that the BMI scale says 150 for my height is still overweight.. I'm thinking it's a healthy weight. 120# sounds unhealthy to me and I just cant picture myself that low. I'm going for 140, I have lots of muscle and if there's a famine, I want to survive more than a day!

Peace out!

Keep on Keeping on ...T

Congratulations.

You might be surprised how your thoughts on goal weigh can change. Something that seems too small at the beginning can seem just right the closer you get to it.

Congrats!!!

I am your height and 150 is a size 8 for me. Don't really see the need to be any smaller than as I am a medium-large frame and look gaunt at a size 6 (based on pics from ~17 years ago).

You will know what feels right!

Thank you everyone! Although I surf the boards now and again, I havent posted regulary in a while and it's good to hear encouragement.

I felt beautiful yesterday, the first time in a very very long time!

Congratulations, that's a wonderful achievement.

Getting out of obesity and into overweight is my next big goal; I hope I join you there.
