Saying Goodbye to Morbid Obesity

At my highest weight earlier this year of 292lbs my BMI was at 45.7, it put me right into the morbidly obese category.  When I put my info into the calculator and it spit out the number I was horrified.  I was so over weight that my health and life were in serious jeopardy.  It was time for action but I honestly didn't really get moving until we got started over at A Nu(de) Motivation.  My weigh in yesterday nudges me into the obese category, which is still horrifying, but I have to admit I welcome the dropping of the word morbid.  My BMI as of yesterday is 39.7!  Still not a great number but what an improvement. In just under 6 months my life has changed so much!  I can't imagine going back now.  I will be working my weight down to the overweight category over the next several months.  63lbs from now, that will happen.  I know now that, it's just a matter of time before I get there.  No longer an IF but a WHEN. 

Have a great day everyone!
