No Longer Obese

My weight has always been something I've struggled with. For I don't even know how long (8? 9? years), I've been considered obese. Before that, it was the evil chart in the doctors office. The one where you followed the line across until it you got to your weight and it told you if you were normal. Such crap.

Do any one of you have Wii Fit? When I would step on the fitness board it would groan and my avatar would plump up. Ugh.... that feeling rivals any ache my gut has received from IF. It's awful. Now, I actually want to get back on it. Even if it is only to tell the little effer to go to hell.

With last weeks weigh in, and according to BMI measurements, I am officially no longer obese. Is it strange that I'm happy to be 'only' overweight? I've finally come under that magical '30%'. It won't be until I can break the 25% barrier that I will be considered normal.

While I don't put too much stock in the whole BMI thing, it was still nice to see. I know that everyone is built differently and it is only a reference or guideline. But, it still felt good. It felt good to accomplish something. To put another tick in the win column. And as I'm sure many of you can relate - it feels pretty awesome to collect a win.


  1. I love this post and it's definitely something I strive for myself. You are an inspiration and you are doing a GREAT job!! LOVE the new layout also!

  2. How awesome!! I hate the BMI on the Wii, especially when it plumps up!! Probably why I've avoided it forever. It's great to get from obese to overweight, I know that was always my goal (and then to go from there). You're doing great, it's awesome to hear!!

    As for the blog post, thanks for responding <3 My back and hips have still been suffering on and off. Not supposed to sit for a long period of time, which is hard some days when I'm getting work done on the computer. But it's better aside from that, thanks!

  3. Whohoo!! That's a great step Mrs S - keep on keepin on!

  4. What an awesome accomplishment. Maybe one day I will experience this! Congrats!
