Default I am overweight! aka No longer obese

Guess who's in the overweight BMI category!

I've always thought these categories were a tad artificial... So, colour me very surprised at how happy I've found myself to be "overweight"! LOL It's a little unexpected but I feel totally warrants celebration!

Stats: 117.8 lbs lost as of today, 38.2 left to go!
BMI: 29.7

It's been almost a week, and it still feels a bit surreal, even more than onederland did!

I just wanted to share this great news!

When October 31st came around, I was, indeed, deeply grateful I had remained committed to losing weight. One year & 110 lbs + lost later, I remain grateful every day.

Reached onederland 31.12.2013!

Reached BMI of 29.7 (overweight class!) on July 29, 2014!
Making my way to 140 lbs! - 30.6 lbs to go!!!

That's awesome! Congrats!

It's my goal to be overweight (191 or less) by my birthday (Oct 20). Sounds funny, but I'm kicking obese to the curb!

Congratulations on getting to "overweight"!! (File that under "things you'll read on weight loss site that sound insulting but are actually complimentary")

Wow you have come such a long way!
I felt the same, that it doesn't actually mean much if the BMI chart defines me as "overweight" rather than "obese," and yet I found myself SUPER excited to reach that point...Congratulations!!

CeeJay, if there's one thing I could say it's to keep trying. Don't ever give up. Whether it's going at it day to day, deciding to get back on as soon as you fall off the wagon so to speak, or facing a plateau... Keep at it and you WILL see changes! Also, it took me a really long time but I realized there were only two options I felt happy with: losing weight or maintaining my weight loss. I never gave a single thought to maintenance in the past, which is probably how I gained all of this weight. I had never made maintaining my weight a priority. Now, I have 2 states: I'm either losing weight or I'm maintaining it. I actively strive for either, so my weight isn't something that just kind of happens or creeps up on me. I'm not super vigilant about it, but enough to keep an eye on it and make it a priority in my life. This is even the case if I've fallen off the wagon. I let myself gain a couple of pounds (if that), then I reign it in. I hope that helps! Best of luck with your goals.. you can do it!!
