So get this . . . I'm obese!!  I had no idea!  Here I am thinking I'm chubby, round, curvy, or fat and I'm obese!  I was googling weight loss, exercise, recipes etc and I come across a BMI calculator.  A BMI will say if you're underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese.  I enter my height and weight and get a  BMI of 33.  A BMI of over 30 = OBESE!!  I then looked a little further down the chart to see how much I have to lose to squeak into the overweight category.  22 pounds.  I wish I knew at the time that I was gaining the weight that I was crossing that line.  

On April 5th, 2010, I typed this line in my journal: 
"I was 201.4 this morning.  I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to snap out of it.  A miracle."  

Sometime that week, I passed 203 pounds.  Sometime that week, I crossed the line from overweight to obesity and I didn't even know!  Between you & me, it was likely partway through a Whopper, pizza, or Sausage McGriddle.  UGH!!  So not worth it!  I never thought I'd say this but . . . I wanna be overweight!!!


  1. But now that you know that, you know what you need to do to change it. Maybe set a goal to lose those 22 pounds and think of a reward for yourself for when you do. A pound or two a week is the way to go to ensure maintenance. I will help you out in any way I can for as long as you want me too. :)

  2. Well, ironically enough, WW first goal is 10% of your weight which just happens to be . . . drum roll . . . 22 pounds! Ahaha!
