I got a new charm for my keyring for losing 50 pounds!
It's been nearly 2 months since my last set of progress pictures. 2 months to lose 11 pounds...it's acceptable, certainly, but that sounds quite slow to me. I was spoiled with my quick loss at the beginning.
I still have an issue recognizing the weight loss in myself. Logically, I know I'm a lot thinner because I can wear smaller sizes, and my measurements are getting smaller, but I have some sort of mental block when it comes to actually *seeing* it.
I have now lost 20% of my starting weight of 250.2. My BMI has dropped from 38 (nearly morbidly obese) to 30.3. I am still "o-beast" (I always say it like that when I'm talking to my mom, I feel it is an appropriate descriptor, but amusing at the same time...sometimes you gotta laugh at yourself!). But I am inching ever-closer to the 'overweight' range of the scale.
Weight Watchers' BMI calculator on their website doesn't use decimal places, so they say I'll be overweight (BMI of 29) at 193 lbs. More precise online calculators that count the overweight range up to a BMI of 29.9, tell me I'll be there at 196.8 lbs. I've settled on 193.4 as my next mini-goal, and I'd like to hit that by September 3.
