Default Happy Scale Victory: NOT OBESE ANYMORE!

This morning, to my surprise, the scale read 179!!!!!!!
3 times!!!!!

For a 55 woman, that is technically not obese anymore!!! (Yes, thats according to the BMI charts. They are flawed, yes, but it was a goal).

I normally weigh on Mondays, and given that this number was a bit of a surprise, I expect that by Monday my weight will be up again. But you know what?? Im calling this goal DONE. Even if I go up, Ill go back down again.

So, whats next? When I first set this goal I never imagined Id be able to go further, but it turns out Im not done. Im just now getting into weight lifting more seriously and can see my body changing more, getting stronger. My next goal is 165 and then well see.
