OMG! I'm overweight! That's flipping AWESOME!!!!
Because it means that I'm not obese any more!
This week I dropped another 2 lb and my BMI dropped below 30 for the first time since.... well since I first heard of BMI! Those size 14 jeans don't give me a muffin top any more - although my "baby bump / pouch belly" still sticks out at the front (ain't nothing but sit ups gonna shift that - damn it).
I'm stunned since we spent most of last weekend eating. I was fully expecting a stay the same, and wouldn't have been shocked at a gain. But there you go! Being extra careful this week has paid off. It probably helped that since it's Half Term I have been taking the kids out and walking all over with them. I really should go back and add the activity points, just to record the difference it made. Hubby lost 2 lb too and he was so surprised that he refuses to believe it!
This time last year my BMI was 36+ putting me at severely obese. I had no idea I was that big! Sure.... I knew I was big. I was aware of what size clothes I was wearing and I had mirrors same as I do now. But I had a bit of a mental block on just HOW big I was. Right now I am THRILLED to be only overweight.
My eldest son asked me if I was going to have a party to celebrate, hahaha... Maybe when I get to "ideal" weight! Only 2st 1lb till I'm there!
Things I have learned this week:
Targets for this week:
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
