Talking Never Been So Happy To Be Obese Before!!

This morning I got on my scale, which I don't do very often, because it's a mean scary random number generating machine...

Anyhoo ~ 262.0 is what she read...

I'm officially OBESE!!

I began this journey August 14, 2008, at @ 370 lbs, Super Morbidly Obese. Yes, like the Super Hero. I got down to mere Morbid Obesity in less than a month, September 11, 2008. But it's taken me right at nine months to get out of the Morbidly Obese category.

Last time I successfully lost over 100 lbs, I got down to the top of the overweight category for my height (although most of the people I knew swore up and down that at 190ish I positively was not overweight for my height/build). Well, I was. And I canNOT wait to say goodbye to Obesity and hello to Overweightness, then hopefully goodbye to Overweight (if I can).

Happy, happy, HAPPY day!!!!

It's Dancing Carrot Time!!

Congratulations! Keep at it!!! I think for our height to be just merely overweight is about 185lbs! So keep on going!!! I hope we can both get there soon! Won't it be wonderful to be overweight!?!!
