Happy to be overweight!
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
According to the BMI calculation on sparkpeople I am now overweight, but no longer obese. This was exciting to me! I realize it is not really an accurate way to measure my progress and based on just some crazy numbers, but it was still exciting. Happy to be down into the overweight range. Really I was excited to finally break a plateau and get below 170 lbs. this week. I feel like I have been stuck most of the month at 172-173. I have officially lost 44 lbs. this year. So these numbers also are satisfying, but I realize again they are just numbers. The real satisfaction is that all my clothes are huge on me, and I really need new ones pretty badly. I have lots more energy this year than I used to. I can tell there are muscles in my arms, although still that flab in the arms too (I need to work more on arms). I can feel my hip bones now. I am overall more tone than I used to be. And I AM TOTALLY ADDICTED TO EXERCISE!!!!! If I go too many days without a workout, then I get really grumpy. I walk our dog an hour in the morning and often an hour at night, plus do a beachbody workout in the afternoon. Lovin' it!!
