    As of this morning, for the first time in 8 years, I AM NOT OBESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know many people would be gutted to be classed as overweight, but to me starting this with a bmi of over 50 last July, getting through the different levels of obese to 'overweight' is a joyful experience.

    Roll on healthy bmi!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for everyone's help and support along the way, I love you lot.

    Congrats Peony!!!

    I soooooo remember that feeling of going from obese to overweight - I honestly think it's more special than moving from overweight to healthy - maybe because most of us spent significantly more time being obese than overweight perhaps?

    Anyway - enjoy it - you deserve to feel very proud :D

    Wow! Well done. I also can't wait to be 'overweight'! It sounds so funny when you say it. But it's so much more appealing than 'obese'!

    You've done so well, I'm so pleased for you!

    WELL DONE!!
    Such a massive achievement!
    One of my targets is to be overweight (sounds bizzare doesnt it!) rather than obese.

    Hope you're celebrating in style x
