"Just Overweight!"



Recommended Posts

I'm so excited today! I am no longer "Obese." I weighed this morning and am officially "overweight!" My highest recorded weight about 3 yrs ago was 242 lbs. That equals a BMI of 48.9 and is Class 3 Morbid obesity. I had a BMI of 46.2 when I started my bariatric journey last June. Today, at 147 lbs, my BMI is 29.7! I am finally just "overweight!"

Imagine being 147lbs and being told you're overweight. I fluctuate between 155-160 and I'm considered overweight. If you listen to my family and friends they advise me not to lose anymore weight.

I say, if you feel good and your co morbidities are either gone or in remission and your blood work comes back ok then you're not only healthy you're doing quite well. Looks like you're on the right track.

That's a great feeling! I hope to be there in about 3 months.

Well I just went from morbid obese to just obese, so I am having a mini- celebration myself. Went into this journey with BMI of over 51. So all this loss is a gain for ME!

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
