You are so right, I am very happy. I also just noticed I am under 100 lbs to my goal weight. Good day for me.

Congratulations. It is weird that the smallest changes make us the happiest. You appreciate these little moments because you work hard to get down to each level.

keep up the great work and in no time you will be just overweight.

as someone pointed out to me recently this is the one place that being overweight is cause for celebration.

I've never seen or heard of those extra subcategories within Obese, found this chart, only charts I've seen previously were only labeled Under, Normal, Over and Obese.

Category BMI (kg/m2) BMI Prime
from to from to
Very severely underweight 15 0.60
Severely underweight 15 16 0.60 0.64
Underweight 16 18.5 0.64 0.74
Normal (healthy weight) 18.5 25 0.74 1.0
Overweight 25 30 1.0 1.2
Obese Class I (Moderately obese) 30 35 1.2 1.4
Obese Class II (Severely obese) 35 40 1.4 1.6
Obese Class III (Very severely obese) 40 45 1.6 1.8
Obese Class IV (Morbidly Obese) 45 50 1.8 2
Obese Class V (Super Obese) 50 60 2 2.4
Obese Class VI (Hyper Obese) 60 2.4

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
