OMG I'm Happy to be Overweight


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Yes you read that correct! I was looking around my settings on SP and I noticed that my BMI is now (as of weight loss today) Overweight!! emoticon I left Obese and I am NEVER EVER going back!!!!
I never thought I would be happy to say that I am overweight, but it is better than Obese any day. This goes to show how we need to take every small victory and emoticon with it. I hope you are doing as well today and found your silver lining, because there ALWAYS is one. You just have to look for it.

  I passed that point some 10 lbs ago, and it never occurred to me that I should celebrate. Thank you for giving me a reason to do so belatedly.

    Now you have given me a new goal-----to be OVERWEIGHT!!! It will be a great goal to go from morbid obese to obese and finally to OVERWEIGHT. So I guess for now, I need to have the 1st goal to be Obese. Step by step, day by day! emoticon

    That's awesome!! Congrats!! I felt the same way too last month! I have been pushing myself to get the ticker out of Obese and inside overweight and I am very happy to be there too. I am sure that super soon we both will be in the normal range!! Good going!! emoticon
