Today I decided to calculate my BMI from a website for one of our local hospitals. I was shocked to find out that 41 (my number) is Morbidly Obese. I have been losing weight since January and was feeling really good about myself. At 218 pounds, I am at the lowest weight I have been in 5 years.
I have learned how to eat from the NOOM program and am following it using the tracking here on SparkPeople. I have joined the Biggest Loser Summer Challenge and look forward to get down to 200 by the end of the summer.
I was told that I was Obese in the 6th grade when I weighed 150 pounds. Now I have the new goal to get my BMI through the Obese numbers to finally stop being Obese at age 73. It is a future goal that I feel confident that I can achieve now that I have the right tools and friends here on Sparkpeople who will hold me accountable.
