I haven't really posted much about my weight loss lately. The holidays had me paranoid & I've just been so busy lately that I haven't put as much effort into it as I had been previously. I'm finding it hard to make it to Zumba between work, Zeke, & a bunch of other things that have to be done in a week. I have been exercising from home though for the time being.
I am happy to say that I stepped on the scale yesterday & weighed 185.5 lbs. (Obvi, I have no shame about talking about my weight. I really don't see why people freak out about it. I'm generally pretty open about stuff though cause I think it's easier that way.)
While most people wouldn't be excited about weighing that much I am because for the first time in at least 5 years my WII told me my BMI was considered overweight. Um, YES! I've fallen into the "obese" category for a long time now.
Let me clarify something though: I believe that all body types are built differently. I believe that I am built to be curvy, voluptuous, a little meaty, whatever you want to call it. In no way or form have I felt "obese" in that last couple years. If I actually weighed like 135 lbs like the "healthy" BMI calculator suggests, I would look icky. I have hips, a big butt, and strong calfs/thighs. I'm not built to be some calculated size...this is part of my individuality as a women. Even when I hit my 150-155 goal, I will be on the precipice of being overweight but you know what? I'm cool with that.
I'm excited because even though my weight loss has been a long several year slow process, it's been steady & I haven't gained my weight back. No fad diets, no HCG, just eating right, staying busy, & excercise. I never have to worry about denying myself which means I never have to worry about a binge. I'm cool with that.
50 lbs DOWN & just 30 to go to reach my goal. I'm cool with that.
