Thread: Overweight at last!

  1. #1

    Default Overweight at last!

    Today's weigh in put me at 179, which puts me at 29.8 BMI -- so long obese, hello overweight! Yeah, I know BMI is a load of hooey (b***s*** made-up index), but it still feels like a milestone. The only real milestone left for me is goal.

    Great headline Blackbeard I was trying to analyze it before I read the posts.

    SO proud of you! You know, I had way less to lose, and knowing how wonderful I feel, you must be walking on air at times. Man, there is nothing like feeling healthy, looking great, and fitting into good looking clothes.

    Bless you over and over on this journey, such and inspiring one it is. You may never know how many people you have helped.
