100 lb. Club - According to Iphone App, I'm no longer "OBESE"

So I've been bouncing around 203.4, 203.2, 203.5 for the past few days, and I entered in my BMI calculator and it said "Overweight" for 203.4, and "Obese" for 203.5

I figured awhile ago I needed to be 202 to no longer be obese. Am I there???? Am I really, really, there??? WEEEEEE!!!! I know this is so arbitrary and it is just a label made up by the medical community but this is a HUGE DEAL to me!!! I am so thrilled to be here, I can't believe it. I know most would be ticked not to be in onederland but for some reason this seems more a milestone. I feel like a brand new me! :carrot:

I'm not obese anymore and I'm gonna shout it from the mountaintop!!! WooHoo!!!!

Yeah you!!! Congratulations!!

199 is different for everyone. It's a bigger deal for you at 5'8" because of your height. When I got there, I was still obese for another 23 pounds! So I get that BMI would be a really big deal and going from obese to overweight? Absolutely priceless! :D
