Weight Progress!

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I think I've finally broken through the plateau of 168 lbs. emoticon

Today my home scale (which is generally a couple pounds lower than the Jenny Craig and doctor's scales) read 165.5. That means I am only 1.5 lbs away from a "Normal" BMI. Back in 2008, I finally decided it was time to stop being complacent, when I saw I was in the "Obese" category. "Overweight" was something I was used to since I was a preteen. However, the word "Obese" carried a lot of uncomfortable connotations.

Other good news: I fit into my smallest pair of size 12 shorts again. Maybe this winter I will be able to buy size 10 jeans. I've never actually had size 10 jeans because Juniors sizes are in odd numbers and I went from a 13 to a 14 when I started wearing Misses sizes.

So, I am nearing my half-way point and I am still feeling very motivated.
