Default I hit a weird milestone

I started at 270, and now I'm at 247.8, so finally under 250. You know how a lot of exercise equipment has a maximum weight limit of 250 pounds to use it? Well, my first goal was to get under 250, and I made it. (And yes, I know you can have a 20 or 25 pound or so cushion to get on the equipment with a 250 pound limit, but my goal was my goal. Weird, I know).

The funny thing is, I don't even need or want any exercise equipment. I'd rather do an exercise video or walk outside any way.

I can SO understand and congratulate you wholeheartedly!!!

I am also right around the same weight, and we have a trampoline in our backyard with a max of 250. Our toddler always wants me to come on with him, and I do.. but I just sit there and never jump. (He weighhs 30 pounds himself so we're definitely over together!). I always look around and wonder if the thing is going to cave in. I will feel so much better when I'm just 10 pounds less!

Congratulations again on your success - keep up the good work!

That's actually not at all weird! That's a very cool accomplishment! I had never known about that weight limit.... it's just kind of cool to think that now you aren't so far beyond the norm. Big high five for you!

That is awesome!!!! Seeing the weight limits then doing the calculations in your head just to find out it's something you can't do is never fun.
