Finally just overweight not obese

Yeah! Just one pound over the mark, but so happy to get here. I have been dieting since August and started out as over morbidly obese, and now I am just overweight. I don't stand out in the overweight American average crowd, and when I am down another 28 pounds I will be fine for my height.

I felt like the fattest person where ever I went, and now I am not.

And I am healthier and fit.

    Fantastic, I'm "overweight " too , and just getting into this category feels great. Not only are we lighter our health risks have decreased .
    Here's to getting to healthy

    WOOT! Congrats!
    I reached it a few weeks back and it was an amazing feeling. I've thought of myself as 'obese' now for so long, that it's been a huge mental shift for me. Hope it is for you, too!

    Awesome work! I too got a thrill out of passing the obese/overweight line. Now, I'm 9lbs to "healthy" and I can't wait to get there :smile: Good luck in your continuing journey!
