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

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
