Finally Normal!
As of this morning i'm down 63 Lbs! Which makes my BMI in the Normal range!! Taken 15 months but i'm fine with that! So excited! I don't take That much stock in BMI's really as to where my weight should be but it was awesome to see "Normal" for once instead of Obese or Overweight!

I'm so happy for you -- congratulations!!! :) I dream of seeing that -- but I'm not sure even if I get to 140 that it would be considered normal because I'm so short. LOL. I just won't want to be death is knocking on your door any day now obese any longer. :) You are an inspiration to all of us still walking the path to health. :)

WTG!!!! You must be on cloud 9 right now!
You are officially in the minority!

I actually plugged in some numbers yesterday.
I need to be down 10lb exactly to be overweight. Never been so stoked to get to overweight.
I also plugged in my start weight. I was 1 lb shy of not just being obese, but being in the 2nd "holy crap" category. :( it really tends to sneak up on us.

Anyway, super big congrats!
Do something nice for yourself! A manicure or new handbag, maybe?

scalestepper 08-30-2013 08:32 AM

That is awesome, so happy for you!

Patience 08-30-2013 08:37 AM

Wow, princess shelly!
You are really breaking trail for us.
Any tips for us stragglers?
I am guessing one would be to not be impatient, that it's ok to be a tortoise, not the hare. Others?

baileygirl3 08-30-2013 09:31 AM

Congrats!!! I know you are super excited. DOn't worry about the length of time that it took you to get there, you are not alone, its taken me forever too. I am about to call goal soon if I can't get these last few pounds off which is fine by me. Maintaining is progress in itself right? Congrats once again

Olive 08-30-2013 11:02 AM

That's AMAZING. What a sane goal!

tobelowcarber 08-30-2013 11:03 AM

Wow!! Congratulations!

princessmommy 08-30-2013 11:51 AM

Thank ya'll so much! Bella it's been a long hard haul But so worth it! The last few days have been what made me lose enough to get to "Normal" I Think i'd been eatting to much at supper so I ate less and bam! Weird especially since i've Yo-Yo'd Soo much for 4-5 Months!

astribling 08-30-2013 12:30 PM

Congrats! :jumpjoy::clap:

Olive 08-30-2013 12:31 PM

Shelly, do you think that when you reach your 135-140 goal you'll stay there or go lower? Very curious :) you're one inch taller than me, my GW is higher (150).

150 would still be 7 lbs. too much to fall into "normal" range from my height but I chose it because I feel really good at that weight -- I'm also fairly, um curvaceous? :laugh: so that has to be accounted for.

I think women around our height at 135-150 look gorgeous!

MtherGoos 08-30-2013 12:42 PM

Shelly, I'm so excited for you!! You're such a constant motivation and I really appreciate you and your support!

Olive, I'm 5'3" and my goal weight is also 150. I just can't imagine being any lower than that after starting off so heavy! However, it will be great when I get to find out!

DairyQueen 08-30-2013 12:44 PM

and you look FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

Kittycatmom 08-30-2013 01:13 PM

I'm also 5'3, with a goal weight of 150. I have a large frame, and look and feel good at that weight.

BulldogMom 08-30-2013 01:18 PM

Great job! I'm going to be a slow loser too but its people like you who will keep me motivated.
