Congrats!! I hate the labels they use for the BMI. Keep up the awesome work. I really like your goal list, mini goals make it easier to keep going!

Congrats! I'm close to being "obese" not "morbidly obese", and I'm eyeing that goal with anticipation!

Congratulations, You are doing a great job at meeting those mini goals.

I will watch for you at Shamrocks & Shenanagan's. I was just on line last night, they have changed the route and limited it to 1,500 people. I hope it's a nice day, I walked 3 miles in the rain on Saturday and Sunday to prepare for this.

Thank you, thank you ladies I love having these mini goals, it's something I learned from others on this site. It can be overwhelming to think "I have 100 lbs to lose" but when you break it down into mini goals it makes it attainable. Plus it's so much more fun to celebrate these mini achievements instead of thinking I still have 45 lbs to go.

Next weight goal lose 20 lbs, I'll be 165, that will be 75lbs lost and 3/4 of the way to GOAL!!! (I'm a data analyst so I like numbers ) Another thing that helps is that I don't set dates for when I have to meet my weight related goals.

wanna b thin - Hello! Thank you and thanks for the update on the run. I'll have to go to the site to check out the new route. I hope we bump into each other it would be great to meet fellow 3FC member!

You are doing GREAT!!!

Although I don't really buy in to the one size fits all regarding BMI I remember how excited I was when I was no longer obese.

Again, congratulations and good luck on your upcoming runs.
