Hey you, Obese chick!

Get outta here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I hit 190.4 which is a milestone in one and almost two ways. The big celebration today, for my 5'7" frame, I'm no longer obese. I'm now, simply, "overweight." (((cheers)))!

* Underweight = <18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
* Overweight = 25-29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

To calculate your BMI, go here. Or, I think there might even be a calculator on the right side column of my blog.

SO, my next BMI goal will clearly be 24.9 so I can become "normal." That means I need to get down to 159 pounds. From 190.4 to 159 is a loss of another 31.4 pounds (wow!) ... Yep, I've still got a lot of work to do.

But, nonetheless, I get one of these bad boys from Scale Junkie (Have I told you how I love you so, Scale Junkie??!!)

And, though I still see those pesky .4 pounds... I'm gonna jump the gun and say I get this one too for going from 225 down to 190:

...Also, have I mentioned that I love you guys? You're the best, seriously. You keep me accountable, motivated and feeling like I'm not alone on this weight loss journey thing.

THAT IS BIG NEWS!! You may be able to go to doctor's offices now without getting the "weight" talk, or consideration, etc.

You have been chipping away at this in such a consistant way, I hope you are PROUD!!

woohoo, way to go this is good news. You are lucky you are on the taller side Im so short that the only way to be overweight is to weigh 160 pounds lol. Its so hard when you are short, tho I believe when you are obese that loosing even a small amount of weight is good for you!
