Default Skinny Mini and Lovin' It!

Over the years I've gone up and down in my weight which seems to be a constant struggle. My doctor told me a couple years ago that I needed to do something immediately about my health and diet to live a healthy life. Finally, after a diet rehaul, cardio boost, and plenty of support I was able to go from a size 8 and cholesterol level of 250 to a size 0 and cholesterol level of 175. No longer do I have to slam back pills to maintain my health or worry about not fitting into my jeans! Through a lot of research, trial & error, and motivation I was able to lose the weight. Every day I still work on maintaining my weight that I have lost. My favorite hobby is to create recipes and find foods that are delicious and nutritious. I find also that walking daily and having small goals (like looking great in my halloween costume) are a huge part in my success. If I can lose the weight, so can you!

Wow, congrats on the life overhaul! I'm a little surprised though, according to your profile, you're 5'8" and 118 lbs, which is an underweight BMI of 17.9. Is your doctor concerned that it's low? Normal BMI is usually 18.5-24.9, but of course everyone is different and you'll always have people fall on either side of the norms and still be healthy.

Yes, I am now at the bottom of my weight limit and I definitely am not losing any more - my goal now is to maintain. I've had several blood tests and exams and my doctor says I am in great health and that my weight is not too low. Members throughout my family do have a small build or structure than most, which is probably why I fall a little lower than the norm but still am very healthy. Thank you so much for your concern! I have met several women that do get too thin because they are weight loss addicts or have physical image issues. Be careful not to fall into this trap and just strive to be healthy and love yourself!
