I just recalculated my BMI and I am no longer obese!!!

Since joining SparkPeople I've lost over 25 lbs and my BMI went from 33.9 to 29.2!

Not a huge change but enough to take me from the 'obese' to the 'overweight' category.

Now, if I can just get off this plateau and back to the "actually losing weight" category!

    I think 25 pounds and 4.7 on the BMI scale is definitely a huge change worth celebrating! Good job!

    That IS a HUGE change, don't short-change yourself.... give credit where it is due! You are making positive changes in your life and you haven't given up and quit! That is an enormous success! Don't worry about how quickly or slowly it comes off, as long as you are always making positive changes and making healthy choices. You are already SO MUCH healthier on the inside.. it just takes the outside a little while to catch up!
