Default Halfway there!

So I got a happy surprise this morning - I'm 171.8 which means that I've lost 50.2lbs since July! My goal was to reach this on New Year's so it's awesome that I'm there a few days early. I told my family this morning and we did a celebratory . It's crazy to look back and think that I've lost 50lbs this year (in 5 months!!), and now I'm at the halfway point! 50lbs to goal! (40-something to my original goal of 130lbs) and that's really exciting to think about! The other cool thing is that I'm roughly 9lbs away from busting into the overweight bmi category! That's that much closer to normal! It's crazy that just a little under half a year ago I had a bmi of 40.6 and now my bmi is 31.4.Of course it takes about 60lbs to get out of the obese category, and only about 35 to get out of the overweight category.

I have never made it this far before, as a former yo-yo dieter I would just give up after 5-8lbs, but I've changed my eating habits and my exercise habits and my outlook on life has improved! I know that this time is for real!

Here's two pictures for comparison:
