I weigh more than either of you. But I do not think I look obese either. The medical records from collision keep stating obese woman in her 40's and I want to smack someone for such insensitivity! Every time I read those records a little bit of me dies inside. I had lost so much weight and was back to a size 12! Imagine a size 12 is obese? A size 12, I had not been a size 12 since like my early 20's. It really hurt my self esteem! My new doctor told me that back during the time of the great painters I would be a considered a healthy woman. My partner says I am voluptuous. It sounds corny but I figure he loves me so no amount of terminology is going to change that.

That is a horrible word, obese! I weigh right around 170 and I am 5'3" tall. I don't feel obese! My daughter is the same height and she weighs 20 lbs more than I do and she sure doesn't look obese! It is motivating me to lose some of this weight though:)

My profile picture is my daughter and I on her 40th birthday which was in September 2014. I think we're both a little too heavy but certainly not obese!

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

I really hate that stigma of "officially obese"! According to my charts even after losing 70lbs it was still obese, but I can still touch my toes! They need a better category system, obese to me is unable to move more than a few feet and be out of breath. But I suppose that it a great motivator or a great stagnator, it is our choice.

Me too! I just found out I am officially "obese" the other day! I have to get some of this weight off too! It's really uncomfortable and makes it hard to breathe when I bend over and hard to tie my shoes, I sure don't feel good about being obese!
