Call me dizzy today!!! Oh, yeah... and ECSTATIC!!

Got on the scale after several weeks of weight fluctuations (which I had no idea what I "really" weighed at), and found out I dropped 4.6 lbs!

That means, I've not only reached my 140lb milestone, I've PASSED IT!! A total of 143 lbs to date!

I got on and off the scale like 10 times just to make sure I had my contact lenses in properly, LOL! :D

Then it struck me, and I hurried over to my laptop to google a BMI calculator. Lo, and behold, I am also officially NO LONGER OVERWEIGHT!! I'm in the NORMAL weight category!!!! :cool:

I then did the following math and realized I have less than 40 lbs to lose before I hit my target goal (39 lbs left to lose to be exact).

Dang!!!

I think it was RockinRobin who said I'd see the 160s "whoosh by" me! I don't know about the last 4 lbs in the 160s category before I hit the 150s, but at least for this coming week, I'm "whooshin' by"!!! :)

wow, that's so amazing. I don't think I was EVER in the normal BMI category. I remember those health days they'd do in gym class where we'd get weighed and measured and stuff...and they would take out bmi and I was always obese....

I'm so jealous!

Hopefully I'll get there soon too. You're definitely a great inspiration. Keep up the amazing work, you'll be there in no time!
