    celebrate with me - I'm overweight at last

    I'm so pleased to finally have a BMI that indicates i'm overweight and not obese or mobidly obese. A major milestone for me and it is a fast down hill slope from here (I know it may not be in reality as losing the final stone can be a struggle for some ... but positive thinking rules the day!).

    :party0048:I've finally reached a major goal of being classed as overweight rather than obese or morbidly obese.

    Hoorah! 1 and half stone minimum to go and then I assess where I am. My CDC said today that I don't look overweight anymore - a nice thing to say but I think it just means I look "normal" .... now I just have to make my head believe it and behave accordingly (can anyone tell me how "normal" behaves???) Ha ha - I'll never be normal, thank goodness - give me crazy any day!

    SafcGirl31 - good luck tonight. I feel like a weight (no pun intended) has lifted from my shoulders. I'm thrilled.

    Thanks tiffanydiamond - you will get there very soon (I could have been here 6 weeks ago if I hadn't had a break while on holiday - but I got here in the end and that is the important thing).

    I know how you feel Dancing - I'm going to officially hit the overweight status at this weeks weigh in as well (well unless something goes dramatically wrong before Friday!)
    Yay to us!

    oh MsJMC - no I didn't write a blog I just posted here when I wanted to say anything. I guess I always thought "who would want to read my blog".

    Look at my signature, I had weeks of only losing 2 or 3 lbs too. ONLY - we get so greedy. Just remember that if you let things slip this week your signature next week would not be as good as it will be if you see this through 100% just until your next weigh in. Get competitive with yourself and the scales. Don't let the scales win!!! Nasty scales - until they show you a loss you are pleased with and then it is lovely lovely lovely scales.

    Feel free to PM me if you want to chat
