S/C/G: 307/lost 140+ lbs/125

Default YEOW!!!! I NOT ONLY SURPASSED MY 140lb Milestone, BMI says I'm no longer OVERWEIGHT!!

Call me dizzy today!!! Oh, yeah... and ECSTATIC!!

Got on the scale after several weeks of weight fluctuations (which I had no idea what I "really" weighed at), and found out I dropped 4.6 lbs!

That means, I've not only reached my 140lb milestone, I've PASSED IT!! A total of 143 lbs to date!

I got on and off the scale like 10 times just to make sure I had my contact lenses in properly, LOL!

Then it struck me, and I hurried over to my laptop to google a BMI calculator. Lo, and behold, I am also officially NO LONGER OVERWEIGHT!! I'm in the NORMAL weight category!!!!

I then did the following math and realized I have less than 40 lbs to lose before I hit my target goal (39 lbs left to lose to be exact).


I think it was RockinRobin who said I'd see the 160s "whoosh by" me! I don't know about the last 4 lbs in the 160s category before I hit the 150s, but at least for this coming week, I'm "whooshin' by"!!!
