Finally At Healthy BMI

I started my weight loss journey in January 2013 and I weighed in at over 200lbs - I was officially classed as obese. Having that label applied to me was a shock and gave me the push I needed to improve my health and aim to get back to an acceptable weight. I am excited to say that today I just nudged in to the Healthy BMI range. I still have a way to go yet before I hit my target weight of 65kgs, but I feel proud that I've got this far. Things can only get better from here. :-) Yay!!!

    i remember this day. i was also over 220 lbs and was considered "obese" just a year ago, and i remember the very day i broke into the "NORMAL" range on the BMI scale, i cried my freaking eyes out.

    you should be SO proud of yourself . good for you. what a wonderful accomplishment.

    Was updating my weight and just generally 'clicking around' the site when I came across the BMI index. Boy was I surprised to see I've finally hit my ' healthy' weight in terms of my BMI.....even if I am dead on the top end of the range, lol.
    So glad I decided to try this program, even though I'm sure I'm driving my kids and boyfriend crazy with my new habits! Yay me :)

    Congrats! What a happy occasion! You inspired me to plug my numbers into the BMI tool - hadn't looked in a while - and I have just left "obese" for "overweight"! That is a huge milestone for me too, so thanks for inspiring me to discover that piece of good news for myself today!
