Ok, so abrupt, this sudden change in the scale. This morning is weigh-in and, I guess I'm glad for yesterday's big old hike because I weighed 203 this morning (I stood on the scale several times to make sure this was right) and fitday reports that this makes my BMI 29.98 - OVERWEIGHT!!!!!!!!!
By a sliver, I'm not obese anymore!!! (at least, not right now) I'm dying to scream it into Facebook but don't know how!
Check out these measurements - 44-43-44.5 - lol I'm an hourglass!! Every man's dream hahaha. Lost half an inch from my "waist" measurement but my upper belly still protrudes over my belly button and I'll probably have to lose ALL fat before that goes away.
Lose all fat?? I look at normal-slender women now and think how slight they are, how do they not topple over. It might be more than I can get used to! I guess other people lose weight and get to a normal weight range. I've been overweight since birth, I don't know if a normal weight range is my goal...
According to fitday, the upper boundary from "Normal" to "Overweight" for me is 169.3 pounds. What would life be for me if I lost another 35 pounds? It seems a long way to go when you're at this stage in the journey, and maybe I should just settle into a slow, mostly maintenance style of handling myself and see how that goes for the rest of the year. Maybe I need time to learn how to be as a size 16 woman. On the other hand, I think about the title of this blog - For Real This Time - how it has always really evoked for me the goal of being actually slender at least once in my life...
Well, thoughts to ponder. Right now I'm still on the dedicated track to 198 pounds. Might not get there by March 28 but it should be too long after that.
Face pictures coming soon, I promise. I have rather a lot to choose from, because I know you don't want to see every picture of my mug that I find interesting.
