I'm Thrilled to be OVERWEIGHT!
Tuesday, August 30, 2011
Ok, that looks strange when I see it in writing. But it's true.
I'm talking Body Mass Index (BMI) here and when I hit my highest weight ever, at 5' 5" and 259 pounds I was considered Morbidly Obese.
I started losing the weight, and at 240 pounds I was in the Obesity - Class 2 range.
A few months later, at 210 pounds I made it to the Obesity - Class 1 range.
And, finally, this week at 176 pounds, I'm "only" Overweight!
I am 31 pounds away from my goal weight of 145 and when I reach that I will be in the Normal range for the first time in many, many years.
Today, I celebrate and focus on my victories and not the thousands of little battles I fought to get me to this point. After all, I've earned it and I couldn't be more proud of myself!
