Super Obese? Nope... Not ME! (picture)

Friday, May 17, 2013

I know how most of you feel about BMI, and trust me I am the SAME WAY. I don't think just calculating your height vs. weight is any indication of fitness and health...

EXCEPT for those of us who are so obese that we have skipped obese, even MORBIDLY obese to the category of "Super Obese". The Super Obese is defined by a BMI of 50 or more.

I have been a Super Obese since (at least) 2011. It doesn't earn me any cool badges or confidence. It is something I have been struggling with and hoping that one day I would have the strength and determination to surpass this label.

Today, I did just that! I soared down into the 324's and now have a BMI of 49.4 and now am classified as "Morbidly Obese". That doesn't sound great either, but I know that one day, that label will fall to the wayside too.

Just another day of being FABULOUS me!


(Wearing my first "goal dress" --
TWO sizes smaller than what I wore to Mexico in January!)

  emoticon emoticon It DOES feel great going into a whole new BMI category whatever that is for you. And feels bad going back, trust me! I am back in obese, and don't really like that at all.

    WOW!!!! What an achievement! You are doing so, SO well. I am nearly into the morbidly obese category too and your NSV is the inspiration I need to make it sooner rather than whenever. Congratulations on working for what you really want and getting there. I am a little jealous!
