    Finally got my BMI down to 29.9 so as of today I'm overweight not obese, happy happy happy

    [​IMG]Yes, I know, unashamedly blowing my own trumpet but I've worked hard to get from 39.6...now to work on toning the jiggly bits!


    ETA: What is the trumpet player blowing...it looks like a 69???:eek:

    Congratulations, an awesome effort.

    I yearn for the day that I am no longer obese and just over weight.

    If things stay on target, 6-8 months from now I could be joining you in the overweight category :D

    I hope so, I really do. I'm sick of being obese.

    Do you know why you hit a plateau and what did you do to get past it?

    How late into your weight loss did you plateau?

    Loving this! Congratulations! I hear you too, moving into the overweight category was a brilliant feeling - I felt extremely good. I am now 9 pounds away from 'healthy' - totally new territory for me ;)

    I started in September 10, It slowed down dramatically when winter hit but plateau hit Feb to May/June. I wasn't worried at first as I dropped 5 inches off my waist/stomach in about 3 weeks but then nothing...I only lost 3lbs in about 15 weeks or so...I dropped my carbs to get out of it, not low carb just lower carb. When I hit my halfway point I will admit that I slacked off, not on calories but on quality of calories (1200 pure cruddy calories for a while!) so I think that contributed


    It is a brilliant feeling, I've been feeling a bit despondent lately but that is GONE as of today.

    And a well done to you...Finger crossed those 9lbs fly off for you, I know it gets harder the closer you get

    It's good to know, I guess the plateau is inevitable just have to learn to deal with it.
