APRIL 2012 Triumph


Saturday, January 04, 2014

I am down 61 pounds from my highest weight as of today. My goal is to lose another 14 minimum by May.

At the 76 pound loss point I will be a my pre-pregnancy weight, a weight I have not seen in 20 years.

I still want to set additional goals after that, but I am in hot pursuit of the May goal.

I have decided that Dr. Oz and the BMI people (whoever they are) need to change the BMI scale categories.

Here is how they look now:
40 or greater = Morbidly Obese
30 40 = Obese
25 30 = Overweight
25 or below = Normal

Here is how they need to look:
40+ MORBIDLY OBESE
35-40 OBESE
33-34 OVERWEIGHT III
31-32 OVERWEIGHT II
25-30 OVERWEIGHT I
25- NORMAL

We need to see ourselves reaching goals and milestones. Being "OBESE" for such a long time when we are actually working hard and losing weight is a real downer at times.

The next paragraph was written in January, but it is still true, so it stands!

I will enjoy being at my new weight in a way that I was not able to enjoy all those years ago. I would not have my picture made back then, because I always thought I was too fat, but I was not. I am going to be mature this time around. I am going to be happy with myself. I am going to enjoy being alive. I am going to enjoy wearing the clothes I want to wear. I am going to live in this new reality that I am creating for myself.
