Proud to be overweight!

Now, before you ask yourself "What's this fool talking about??!!", let me explain.

On July 29th, I weighed in at 275.5 pounds, and my BMI was a whopping 39.45. That was the day I decided to really push forward with losing weight. I was in the dangerously obese zone (in fact, 5 days later I hit my peak of 276.2/39.55, which is the heaviest I've recorded myself.

So I pushed on, exercised, ate differently, and so on...

Last night, December 12, I weighed myself. I'm down to 208.6 pounds, which I'm happy about, but more importantly, my BMI is now 29.86, which means that technically, I'm no longer 'obese', but simply 'overweight' :laugh:

So I guess, if someone stopped me and said, "Dude, you're overweight!", I'd say "Thank you!"

Now on to Goal #2 - "Get under 200lbs" and Goal #3- "Hit my ideal weight"

    You are an inspiration for me, I just joined after hitting my all time high of 253! I am in the obese zone myself and was inspired by a woman I work with who lost 170 pounds with diet and exercise. Hang in there!

    Wow, that's great! I don't even roll the R!

    Thanks for all the kind words. I really wish I had known about this commmunity from the very beginning. It's helpful and inspirational, and I know it will help me drop the remaining 40lbs that I want to lose.

    Good bye, 'Obese', just passing through, 'Overweight', on to 'NORMAL'!

    Not only am I always immensly inspired by your weight loss seeing as we are one of few men in a sea of inspirationl ladies, but I feel like I am in your shoes a year ago. I am currently down to 289lbs with a BMI over 40. and that is down from 319 a month ago. Your success continues to be an inspiration to me and I look forward to being overweight myself. Cheers to you :drinker: and to us boys on the journey.
