I am finally "overweight" instead of "obese"! I'm down 250 pounds from my highest weight and 230.8 in just over 19 months. I've been in onederland for 7 weeks now. I still can't believe my weight starts with a 1. It has been probably 35 years since I last saw that. I still don't know what my goal weight should be. I just know I still have more than enough fat left to lose. But just for today, I'm going to enjoy being "overweight". Thanks for all the inspiring posts I read in this wonderful group! It helps so much!
When I went to the doctor last month, she told me that I'm a very healthy 62 year old. I almost laughed out loud when she said that. Even though most of my health markers were good in the past (better than they really should have been considering my weight), they were gradually getting worse. Now they were all very good. I think that's the first time in many years a doctor thought I was "very healthy". That made me feel good!

Here I am, 40 years old and feeling like I'm 15 again lol I really am liking what I'm hearing so far, so keep your fingers crossed and for those that pray, pray very hard that what is best for us works out here!
I am still very cautious, though, even though I am quite enjoying the attention. It has only been 2 weeks so its still very, very new and things could easily still go south and we are just getting to know each other, so I am trying to keep my head firmly on my shoulders. I'm trying to keep alert as I don't want to get blindsided by something that I missed the warning signs for - which is why I ask my friends to keep a close eye on things and be my judgment for me. I told my best friend that I need her to be my Jiminy Cricket lol

So I looked it up and I'm morbidly obese until I reach 230 lbs BMI of 38 which is 22.6 more pounds to loose ! I think thats one of my next goals now is to reach obese !
