Why on earth would I be celebrating being overweight you may ask!
Well the reason I am celebrating being overweight is because until last week I was classed as "OBESE". I really didn't feel obese, friends would say that was ridiculous, that I wasn't obese. But according to my height and weight on the BMI calculator I was in the obese category. As I have been losing weight over the last 4 months, I have been dropping to the lower end of the obese category.
Well I have not weighed myself for a couple of weeks. I weighed myself when we came back from vacation to make sure I hadn't put any weight on after my months on the transformation challenge, and found I had lost 1kg (2.2lbs).
So I weighed myself this morning, to make sure I hadn't put on any weight over Christmas and I have lost another kilo (2.2lbs). I'm thrilled! Mind you, I have been living on protein shakes and scrambled eggs thanks to my sore, cracked and now loose tooth.
I just entered my new weight into the BMI calculator and there it is.... 29.5 I am now "OVERWEIGHT" and I'm no longer classed as obese! Woo Hoo! That was a small, silent goal I had, to get out of the obese category. Now my next silent secret goal is to get in the "NORMAL" weight range (a secret that I have now shared with all of my blogging cyber friends, LOL).
Obese is over 30
Overweight is 25 to 29.9
Normal is 18.5 to 24.9
So for me to get into the "normal" range I need to get down to 65kgs (143.3 lbs). That's 12kgs (54 lbs) to go. That is my next goal.
I do want to lose more than that, but that is the next goal. Just baby steps. I have lost about that so far, in the last 4 months, so I figure by mid year, if I keep on my current path, I will get to my finished goal and in about another 4 months, I hope to be at my next goal, which is in the "normal" weight category.
