Mini-Goals - Yeah I'm FAT!
08-04-2007, 03:08 PM
It finally happened yesterday!! I am officially no longer OBESE. I'm just overweight. I cannot express how happy this makes me. I feel and look so different. This is the best thing I've ever done for myself. YEAH ME!!
I still want to lose 30 - 55 pounds, but if I had to live the rest of my life at this weight I could be happy.
Here are some before and after photos. I apologize for the lack of make-up in the second pic. Those are the largest pants I ever wore, size 26. Now I can fit in one leg. I'm currently a size 14/16 and hoping for a size 4 one day.
To everyone out there that's just starting or having a hard time... YOU CAN DO IT!! Don't give up. Work hard and be consistent. It's so worth it!

I was just about to start a new thread saying the same thing until I saw this and decided just to join in with you on yours ;)
I weighed myself this morning and also am no longer obese! I was so excited to get down to only being "overweight". I always thought that was such a terrible category to be in, until I got all the way up to 217 and checked my BMI to find out that I was OBESE. Overweight doesn't sound so bad now!
At 5'9", I weigh 202.1 and this puts me under 30 for my BMI. I'm a little over a month into this operation and have been pretty successful so far.
Your before and after pics are amazing. Congratulations on the new body and new wardrobe, I'm sure! I look forward to buying new things once I go down a size.
Keep up the awesome work! Kudos

:congrat: on your achievement you have done really well and look wonderful. It is such an wonderful feeling when your BMI says your no longer obese and that your overweight. I remember what it is was like when I came out of the BMI which was morbidly obese to obese I was over the moon. So you must be so over joyed, enjoy your success as you deserve it.
:goodluck: with the rest of your weight loss journey and reaching your goal.

Thanks everybody and keep working hard! I can't wait to post when I get to my goal. It will probably be the happiest day of my life.
I went on a date this afternoon and he called me "thin"! I almost fell out of my chair looking around to see who he was talking to. It's nice to have men notice me again.
Kirkin82 thanks and congratulations too! And good luck reaching your goal!
