Default woohoo - I am obese

Got on the scale today and have held 240. This means I am no longer morbidly obese -- just obese!!

100 pounds to go!!

Good for you! Just wait until you're "Overweight" ... that'll be another cause for celebration (which, btw, happened for me about 180).

Yay!

Great job! It's such a good feeling to get a new label on the darn BMI, isn't it?

I'm so happy for you!!!

Can you tell me what calculator/chart you use??
All the ones I look at don't have specific numbers where it changes from obese to overweight etc...

Thanks, and congratulations again!!!
