Beezaur, that's the truth. It's amazing to me how many people tell me I don't need to lose weight, even though my BMI has hit the obese range and I am very out of shape.
To the OP, when people ask me what I'm doing to lose weight I tell them I'm not doing anything to lose weight. I am eating a healthy diet and exercising, but my focus is now on my fitness level and not the numbers on the scale. Yes, I am losing weight and I will continue to until I reach a healthy weight for my height, bone structure, and even of fitness, but I consider the weight loss secondary now. Putting it first has done nothing for me but cause me to put too much pressure in myself and then give up when the results didn't match my expectations.

Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
