Never thought I would be happy to be "overweight"

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Today I thought I would recalculate my BMI. I am now just overweight- no longer obese! Clearly I do not want to stay overweight, but it sure is a step in the right direction!! I was feeling a bit down because the scale hasn't been moving a lot (or at all) this last week, so this news came at exactly the right time! It was just what I needed for that extra bit of motivation before I started to feel discouraged.

If you aren't seeing the scale move, take the tape measure out and check for changes, recalculate your BMI if you haven't in a while, check your energy level compared to when you started- anything to keep you focused on the progress you HAVE made!

    That's fabulous! Non scale victories are every bit as important

    Fantastic! It is such a great feeling. Just go from strenght to strenght. Nothing can stop you now, unless you allow it.

    Wise words and a great way to keep the motivation alive when the scale doesn't seem to budge.



And congrats on the shift in BMI category, that is fantastic.
