My sister told me not to worry about her. I told her that I love her too much - and that I will always worry about her. Unfortunately my two sisters and my brother are all overweight. I finally - myself lost enuf weight to move into the "overweight" category and only just recently - (according to all the bmi charts - I was obese). I am excited to be down to this category - and feel like for the first time I have the right momentum. According to my family - I'm the thin one.... I've kinda got a wierd problem - when I look in the mirror - I think I look thinner than I really am...... I know this to be true because every picture of me - gives me a jolt = and I ask myself - is that really me?
This year - I will be a healthy weight. I will look at my picture and say I look fantastic!!!

    I always think I'm skinnier than I look in pictures too. The camera adds 10 pounds (on every side of me, apparently). Soon the pictures will catch up to the real you inside as you continue to make progress.

    I can relate I am always considered the thin one in my family too. Then I get the sneers from my siblings like You are thin what do you have to worry about but to look at my BMI I am in the overweight almost obese category. I don't want them to think that I think I have it worse than them but I don't want them to think its easy for me to lose weight either. My mother is a good example though she lost 80 pounds and has kept most of it off. I would like to be in a healthy BMI by the end of the year.
