I'm pretty confident that my February weigh in will have me under 200 lbs. My medical stats were fantastic at December physical. Friends and even strangers at the Y are often complimenting me on my weight loss. My physical fitness level is better than it's been in 20 years.
My employer changed insurance carriers and we all had to do an on line health evaluation. So even though every individual section has me in the excellent health category, overall I came out with a very bad score due to BMI and waist measurement. I know both are improving and affordable health insurance was one of my motivating factors but really hated seeing that low score. I've been reasonably content with my weight loss rate of @6 lbs/month, but a little discouraging to see after 9 months of effort that insurance could still be a problem if my job is eliminated this month.
Will just keep on working my plan and keeping my fingers crossed that job is secure until I reach "normal" BMI, which is the number insurance companies are using in setting rate.
Does anyone else worry about affording health insurance while obese?
