Woo Hoo! I hit a Normal BMI by 2012

But now in 2014, I've put a few of those pound back on and am teetering between "normal" and "overweight". I need to refocus for the rest of the year. Winter was rough here in Wisconsin.

In 2011 I was classified as "obese".
My goal was to hit a healthy "normal" BMI by 2012 - and I did it!

February 2011's reason's I wanted to lose weight:
1. I don't have any energy after work to play with my children (this is very sad to me).

My goal was to hit a healthy "normal" BMI by 2012 - and I did it!

February 2011's reason's I wanted to lose weight:
1. I don't have any energy after work to play with my children (this is very sad to me).
2. I'm embarrassed to take my children swimming. I'd like to not be self-conscious in a swimsuit.
3. Someone at work asked me if I was expecting!!!! This was an eye opener.
4. Prove to myself that I can do this. That I am not a quitter!

UPDATE FROM SEPTEMBER 2011 - After 25 pounds lost
1. My butt is not glued to the couch anymore, I definitely have more energy.
2. I'm still embarrassed to be in my swimsuit - but now it's because it has so much fabric! (But I have 15-20 pounds to lose yet before I buy another one!)
3. Nobody has put their hand on my stomach lately and asked when I'm due :-)
4. I am not a quitter. I will go all the way. I still have 15-20 pounds left to lose.

UPDATE FROM DECEMBER 2011 - After 35 pounds lost
1. I'm exercising more than I ever have before!
2. I'm buying a bikini swimsuit - and I'm actually going to wear it!
3. I'm constantly being told how good I luck and people are asking how much weight I lost and what tips I can give them.
4. I did it!
**NEW** 5. I want to push myself to get down to my pre-pregnancy weight of about 130 pounds. 10 to go. SLOWLY over the entire 2012.

I figured it'd be a while and this winter we are having currently would be the best winter to try it out. I don't have to fight ice and snow as much! Stay warm...
