S/C/G: 288/ticker/145

Height: 5'5"

Default No longer obese

As of this week, I am no longer obese. Officially, according to the BMI, anyway. I know it's ridiculous for one pound to put me in a whole different health category (ridiculous! really!), but I guess they need to do it somehow. 110 pounds down, and mostly I just feel... tired. Not tired of "doing this", because these days I can't imagine doing things any differently. Just tired of caring about my weight. It's been such a major part of my life for seemingly ever, and I've just come to realize that it probably always will. But when it comes down to it, my choices are caring or not caring, and not caring is what got me to 288 pounds. (Okay, that's not true. I knew I was getting bigger, and I cared. I just didn't *act*.)

So maybe what I need to do is start celebrating my victories again. Because I really meant to all along, but somehow the 100 pound mark came and went and I never did anything special about it.

I also need to get back to 3FC regularly, because I've been MIA for a month, and the energy here really helps me care. And I absolutely need to care to get going again.

Lisa! You have so much to celebrate, losing 100 pounds AND no longer being obese! I am sorry that you are feeling tired and I hope that it passes soon. You have accomplished so much.

I say it so much that I am afraid that it sounds like a rote response but thank you for posting this. You are truly an inspiration. Your pictures are wonderful. It is especially encouraging to me to see the dates on your pictures, 2007, 2008, and 2009. My loss is slow. I did not lose 100 pounds in the first year and I know that it will take another year or maybe two to get to goal. It encourages me to see someone else who took a couple of years to get to goal.

Thank you!!! Now to celebrate your accomplishments.

Oh Lisa, if getting out of the "obese" category isn't something to celebrate, I don't know what is. You did it. You and your hard work and determination. Your perseverance and your commitment. FABULOUS!!! You have much to be proud of.

Now get out there and celebrate. Find the joy in this. Check out those pics of yours. You are a whole different person. In fact you're an entire person lighter.

Really, I find joy in this almost every single minute. From waking up to the morning and seeing my tiny underwear, to zipping around with all my energy, to feeling like a trillion bucks in my wardrobe, to eating those fabulous nutritious foods that I'm eating, to working and moving my body, to having the peace of mind of not being super morbidly obese and on and on. All things to be celebrated.

110lbs and no longer obese, that's fantastic! Just imagine how much healthier you are (although I suppose you can feel it, you don't even need to imagine it!) Thanks for posting! Woohoo!!!

You HAVE to celebrate this - not least because I'm not too far off "overweight" and I intend to celebrate it like liberation!!

Congrats on your fantastic achievement so far - keep going!

Celebration is most definitely called for. You have done something that required dedication, hard work, will power, and much courage. All of that needs to be acknowledged and celebrated. Think about it, if a loved one had accomplished all that you have, would you not encourage celebration? Congrats 110 times and I hope you find a fabulous way to celebrate it.
