I am Overweight

Monday, May 27, 2013

I am "overweight."

Now, normally this sounds like a negative statement. But compare it to the following:

I am "obese."

The first sentence sounds a lot better, doesn't it?

Saying I am "overweight" sounds pretty amazing to me when I compare it to the fact that yesterday I had to say I am "obese." Today I weighed in at 202.4, losing all my water weight from Aunt Flo and then some. When I checked what this meant in terms of my BMI, I saw 29.9. Which means that for the first time since..., I think before my wedding 3 years ago, I am not obese.

And in a couple pounds (so at most a couple weeks), I will hit Onderland. It's amazing how far I've come. Before I started Medifast (my food rehab program), Onderland seemed like an impossible dream. Heck, even losing 15 pounds seemed like a dream, since in the past I've only ever managed to lose about 10 pounds on my own before giving up.

But now Onderland doesn't feel like a dream, or even a big goal for me. It feels like it's just the next small step on my path. For a little while, I was worried that when I reached Onderland I would become complacent, and lose all my motivation and fall off program. But now that it's so close I know that I won't let myself down. It feels great to have come this far, and I know it will feel great to keep going.

    That's awesome! I remember being so excited a few years ago when my wii said "you're overweight" instead of "you're obese!" I was jumping up and down and I remember my daughter saying she never saw someone so excited to be overweight, LOL
