I JUST realized that I have already reduced my BMI enough to get out of the Extreme/Morbid Obesity category. I am now "just" obese. Did I ever think I would Celebrate such a thing? No! But here I am absolutely thrilled about it! My body may not yet "show" what I've done, but it IS making a difference.

Are you going to get a sweatshirt that says that? Maybe: Obesity--' Every Day I have it less and less! I think I want one that says "Former Cutie-Pie" or maybe "Working my Way back to Thin". How about "Warning! My Cute is Coming Back!" Yeah I like that one. Another for you- OMG Now I'm Just Obese!

Thanks everyone! I also really appreciate the wishes for a speedy trip to "Overweight"! ;) I haven't been THERE for at least 15 years, so that will be cool.

I am Overweight and loving it. But it’s not enough! Heading toward (gasp) normal weight I hope, when this stall ends.

@jenondaway SAME HERE!

35-39.9 BMI is Class II or Moderate-Risk obesity and I got to that a couple of days ago! I am so happy!

Can't wait to be Class I obesity (i.e. Low-Risk), :) 26 more pounds to go.

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
