Labels: Looking forward to being merely Overweight!

Sunday, May 01, 2011

Ok, well I found out that until I lose 9 more lbs ,and reach 153, I'm obese. That's according to my BMI. Makes being just "overweight" seem like such an accomplishment. I just thought I'd share that.

    I am right there with you, Lisa! I have 5.2 lbs to lose before I'll be out of the 'obese range' according to my BMI. I can't wait to be just overweight. Maybe then it won't seem like such a daunting task to get to the healthy range! But it sounds like you're well on your way! (Zumba must be your thing!) Keep up the great work girlie! You can do it!!

    @hippichick, yeah folks have been calling me skinny lately. Reality check: nope. I'm. only 5 feet so that doesn't give me lots of wiggle room. Being short=dislike. Anyway--Lots of work still to do. It's a process. I want the process to take less time. I'd take that magic pill if it existed. I admit it!

    It's shocking isn't it? To realize that it doesn't take much to put oneself into the "obese" category. People call me skinny (and I hate it) and I correct them and say, I'm 166 lbs, which actually makes me overweight for my height (5'4"). At 260 when I began this journey I was morbidly obese!!
    Keep on keepin' on, sister!! You can do this!
