Calculated my BMI for the first time in a long time and found out that I am now considered OBESE. That is a real wake up call, which I find HIGHLY motivating. :)

    That is a double-edged sword - isn't it? I am considered "Morbidly Obese" - it's depressing at the same time as being motivating. I guess we have to choose which to let 'weigh' more on our reactions...(pun intended)

Love your vlogs!!! Keep them comming! (Addicting - aren't they?!!)

    I'm starting out at just below obese (literally .2 away), and we'll get past all of this together! I'm about your size (I'm 5'7" and starting at 190). Good luck!

  You seem very motivated to make a change. You are very brave to do a video blog while you were figuring out your BMI! I don't think I would do that. Good Luck on reaching your goals! :)

  vagues de roulement pour dix mille li et o¨´ la rivi¨¨re coule, il d¨¦borde sa lumi¨¨re. Les vents de la rivi¨¨re, autour de le îlot parfum¨¦e o¨´ les fleurs florissant dans sa lumi¨¨re tous ressemblent neige. Vous ne peut pas dire ses poutres de gel hoar dans l'air, ni de sable blanc
