Ah, well, I'm happy. I have been clinically obese, though on the lower end, for a while now, but for the last few months have really
upped my exercise and watched what I ate. Diabetes (mostly juvenile, though, but that doesn't mean anything really) and heart disease run rampant in my family, and even being slightly obese puts you at risk. But I don't have a scale, and so I haven't weighed myself in about four months. I knew I'd lost weight, because my clothes are hanging off of me, but I had no idea how much. And I DID break through the obese barrier! I've lost 30 pounds, and took my BMI from 33.5 to 28. I know there's no real point to this post except my own self-absorbed pride
, but I wanted to anyway. Now I would really like to lower my risk even further and leave the "overweight" status behind as well. And now I know I can - I didn't even really think about it and I lost the first 30. So, yup, it's back to slogging up the hill, but it does feel good!
