S/C/G: 286/157 (briefly) 170-180ish

Height: 5"9

Default Moved down 2 BMI Classes

So, I started out in the morbidly obese category, also called Obese Class 3 above 40, moved fairly quickly in to Obese Class 2 category.
As of last week, i am officially just Obese!!!

may not seem like something to jump up and down about, but the next step down 4.5 points away, is just good old fashioned Overweight - can't wait for that one, the word obese just isn't pretty, but then it is a **** of a lot better when it doen's have the qualifier of morbidly in front of it

Yay!

That's wonderful! It's so nice to be able to get these negative titles off ourselves.

Thanks so much everyone.

It's so nice to have words of support from people who understand these milestones!

I was telling a male friend of mine this the other day, and while he was very encouraging, i could tell I wasn't really hitting a chord, if you know what I mean!!!!
