Mini-Goals - Never Been So Happy To Be Obese Before!!

This morning I got on my scale, which I don't do very often, because it's a mean scary random number generating machine...

Anyhoo ~ 262.0 is what she read...

I'm officially OBESE!!

I began this journey August 14, 2008, at @ 370 lbs, Super Morbidly Obese. Yes, like the Super Hero. I got down to mere Morbid Obesity in less than a month, September 11, 2008. But it's taken me right at nine months to get out of the Morbidly Obese category.

Last time I successfully lost over 100 lbs, I got down to the top of the overweight category for my height (although most of the people I knew swore up and down that at 190ish I positively was not overweight for my height/build). Well, I was. And I canNOT wait to say goodbye to Obesity and hello to Overweightness, then hopefully goodbye to Overweight (if I can).

Happy, happy, HAPPY day!!!!

It's Dancing Carrot Time!!

That's awesome! Congratulations. 108lbs is amazing. It's a whole person! (a very skinny person, but still!!)

I hadn't realised you've lost 108 lbs.

That is amazing. What a terrific accomplishment!
Well done. You can do it, yes, you can!

And what an inspiration you are!

Congratulations - I'm needing inspiration today and y'all are definitely providing it!

And BTW - "obese" for our height (I've hated that word since the first time it was applied to me) is right at 196. If you calculate it as 30 BMI or as 20% over the max recommended weight for our height - same amount.

Wow a whole world of 5'7-5'8ers! I am a fraction of a hair under 5'8.

Mug, yep! Tracy, she's a coonhound/beagle/?? mix but looks like a Black & Tan. Very smart dog! More energetic than the bassets and beagle, that's for sure.

DC, CONGRATS!!!! Big payoff for a lot of hard work!

Also wanted to chime in with some doggy love - she reminds me of our Gordon Setter when he got the "utility cut" for summer. Great picture ... she has the look of assumed royalty. :)

I know exactly how you feel. I currently am considered obese and can't wait to be classified as overweight! Only someone who struggles with weight would understand this! :)
