    Smile Iím overweight

    Yesterday I posted before and after (so far) photos, but today Iím really excited and enthused. I never imagined Iíd be proud of saying ďIím officially overweightĒ. Some folks might say WTF????
    Hereís the thing......itís a matter of perspective. I was morbidly obese 11 months ago, then two months ago during my pre-op diet I got my BMI down to the obese range Today my BMI is 29 so now Iím into the overweight range. Getting back to a healthy weight (after many years) is finally in sight.
    Height: 5'3
    HW: 234.0 BMI 41.5
    2 week pre-op diet loss: 7
    SW: 190.5
    CW: 156
    GW: 125 BMI 22

    Great before and after pictures. And I remember that happy dance when I was just overweight. LOL. It is fantastic. Wait until you get into the normal BMI range...you will be on cloud 9! Congrats on your success!

    You are doing great! Kept it up! I too remember being excited to be overweight. When I finally reached the healthy BMI (had to do some medical testing for school every year) I took a picture I was so excited.

    Woot Woot, that is fantastic! You've done a great job and it only gets better. It really is amazing to consider four months ago I was carrying around an extra 60 pounds. Damn, that's like carrying a dozen 5 pound bags of sugar. No wonder I felt like miserable. I know I could not have done it without the sleeve and I'm grateful to have been able to get it.

    Continue onward and upward you look awesome!

    Wonderful! Yes, hitting overweight was so great -- then hitting normal. And maintaining it. It's just awesome, and also a bit weird....
    [I]HW: 240 lbs CW: 205 lbs: SW: 199 lbs GW: 130 lbs

    1 MO = 167.0 2 MO = 156.4
    3 MO = 148.4 4 MO = 140.6
    5 MO = 136.0 6 MO = 130.0 (GOAL)
    1 YR = 122.0 20 MO = 130.0
