Diminishing BMI!

Sunday, December 04, 2011

In September of this year I was 255 pounds with a BMI of 41.2 and my waist to height ratio was .58. According to webmd...for my height, my BMI should be between 18.5 to 24.9 I should weigh between 120-150 pounds and and my ratio should be .50 or less.

My goal is to weigh 135 pounds by the end of November 2012. I have been exercising and weighing in and watching my food intake on Spark People since the end of October and I have to say I have really seen some positive results.

My current BMI is 37.3 and I weighed in this morning and I am 231.2 pounds! My clothes and underwear are starting to fit really loosely.

My short term goal is to weigh 220 pounds or less by December 31, 2011! I really need everyone's help and support to stay on track and to stay focused.

This is the first time in my life I have ever been really serious about attacking my weight issues and my whole mindset towards food and I am really determined to do this. I am not only losing weight for myself, but I want to show my daughter, friends, family and co-workers that it can be done....without surgery.

God bless all of you who are on this journey with me. We will make it together!
