I want to be overweight!

Saturday, August 09, 2008

I want to be overweight, and in another 13 pounds I will be! I will be saying goodbye to obese for good at 163 pounds according to my height of 5'2".

It's a mile-mark for me and I am just so thankful it is almost within my reach! Another 2-3 months and I should be there.

I hope that many of you will be soon joining me as overweight instead of obese.

I realized yesterday that my too-small pants (4 pair, 2 new) are now getting too baggy! Oh what a travesty that is! I just barely got back into them at 188 and now at 176 it is almost time to move them on to baggy-pants heaven. I tried on a pair of spandex that I never could wear and they fit!

I would say I am having a fantastic day today! My virtual model is me at 165 and "just fat".

    Hi, Linda. Love your attitude. I too can't wait to be just "overweight" and no more obese! I can't even weigh myself because I have a cast on my left foot, from toes to knee! I think I'm doing well overall, but you are definitely making good progress. Keep up the good work, and we'll both be obese no more! Katie emoticon

    Hey - thanks for the visit - figured I'd return the favor!
    Overweight is great!! LOL We are the same height, you know, and I jumped for joy when I became overweight! Even now, to get to healthy BMI, we' d have to get to 136...maybe someday! But I'm in no rush!

    Here's to being overweight! CHEERS!!

    That is a real eyeopener!! I never looked at it that way. So for me---I could be 'overweight' in about 17 pounds and that's really not much.I will take heart in that realization. I wish you all the luck in the world to your goal. Ginny x

    I am so jealous. When I first read the blog title I was puzzled, but you are right. Being overweight is a great thing! Way to go! I hope to join you one day. emoticon

    That's awesome... way to go! Make sure you make room for me on the overweight couch... as I plan on joining you there some day. If you keep this up... you won't even be there when I get there! :O)

    Then... I will just have to wait a bit longer until we are both at our goal! WHOOT WHOOT... and what a celebration that will be!
