Exhibit A: my client's weight this morning, ladies and gentlemen, was 208. Ok, it was 208.9, but in my client's weight loss world decimals don't exist ;)

Exhibit B: I refer the ladies and gentlemen of the board to my client's avatar. 40lbs lost since the end of July!

Exhibit C:

Is it now not true, ladies and gentlemen of the board, that my client IS NOW OVERWEIGHT RATHER THAN OBESE???

(I've been watching quite a lot of Law and Order recently. Apologies.)

Good for you! I just recently passed into that blessed sub-30 BMI zone, and kissing obesity goodbye is an awesome feeling. Enjoy! :)

Thank you Catherine! It's freaking awesome (and a little surreal at the same time)! I'm eating my breakfast now whilst dancing round my kitchen - which I shouldn't be doing as I'm going to be late for church.

BUT HEY! I think God understands ;)

Oh, I'm doing my best, although you've well and truly pipped me! :carrot: We're both rockin' this joint, we are.

Tee hee, I was only a teeny bit late for Mass this morning...:dizzy:

Congratulations for you! I can not wait to get to the overweight category!

Keep going and you WILL GET THERE! I promise!

I mean, just a couple of days ago I was having a whinge on the onederland challenge thread about how I'd been bouncing around 209-210 for nearly two weeks. It was pretty frustrating! But really, if I can keep it together and break through that...anyone can!

So don't lose heart - it will definitely come :D

A friend rang me just now and asked me something similar. At the moment I'm a mix between "omg whieeee yay!" and "Uh...is this actually happening to me?" :dizzy:

Oh, I love playing with the numbers! Whenever I have something new to add to my weight chart, I pop open the calculator and start playing with it, thinking of every possible way to categorize what's going on. I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who finds that sort of thing endlessly entertaining. :)

Last Friday, after the session, my PT "bowed" to me and I curtseyed back. We must have looked like right wallys! :D

Nice, I'm not the only one :o When I was in my main losing phase, you'd have thought I was trying to find the meaning of life in my charts :)

First, I must say CONGRATULATIONS! :carrot:

Second, I must say that as a law student in the midst of finals I actually didn't notice that there was anything unusual about your post until I read the "Law and Order" comment. *Sigh* Yup, I'm losing it.

Thank you! That smiley cracks me up - yesterday there was a point when I was actually running up and down my kitchen with a big inane grin on my face....
