Yay! I'm Severely Obese!

OnceAndFutureAthleteOnceAndFutureAthlete Member Posts: 131 Member Member Posts: 131 Member
Meaning my BMI is now <40 (39.9!) and so I'm no longer "morbidly obese" (Class III) and just "severely obese" (Class II). :D

27 pounds down, [not going to say just yet] pounds to go.

Next stop: just plain Obese! I can't WAIT to be just plain "overweight". ;)

    Great job, however I hate those charts!! I have seen times they calculate a toned / fit person as obese... I take it a few pounds to a time. Seems to work best for me, won't give up even if I fall off the wagon for a meal or two. Keep going and do you! :)

    For a little more boost, track your BF% w/tape measure. You may be pleasantly surprised. Sometimes BMI doesn't reflect as much change in certain people depending on body shape. BF% can be a great motivator - as little as 3-4 lbs can make a big difference
