Congratulations!!! That's wonderful!!! I'm looking forward to that change myself..
There are several definitions of "morbidly obese" and I've celebrated each as I pass them. (I have a couple of more to go, before I'm just "obese" according to any of the definitions, lol!).
Congratulations on a fantastic decision to make yourself healthier!!..
Congrats, I had the same experience with that awful word. I'm just a few pounds away from being overweight!..
That is a very exciting accomplishment!!!!! When I started Medifast I was "morbidly obese" and now I'm only "severely obese"...I'm 14lbs from just "obese," WOOHOO. LOL, sounds goofy I know, but YAY for us for heading down that ladder!..
I just made that, it's so nice to be overweight.
I remember being classified as moderately obese by the hospital about 2 years ago after an accident, the obese part hurt, but then I was happy to be just moderately LOL 25 lbs later I started Medifast have to wait and see where I end up. My current goal puts me just 1lb into overweight...
Congratulations~ last weigh in I also moved from obese to overweight. It's a nice place to be!..
Congratulations MissMiss! That's such a wonderful accomplishment! I hope I see that myself soon!.
Congrats MissMiss! Obese, I hate that word. I'm still obese as I'm a few pounds away from being overweight. It's kinda scary to think that I'm a 12/14 and I'm obese...
My BMI is finally ON the chart at the doctors office. Of course, it's still in the red zone - but it's on the chart, as opposed to be somewhere on the wall next to the chart! I'm not only still obese - I'm morbidly obese.
Someday - I won't be. This plan will make it so!.
Congrats on graduating out of the obese class!!..
Way to Go!!!! Great job!!! I am so happy for you. That is one of my goals,too!..
Exciting news - I'm so happy for you. That's my next goal, after I get rid of the "evil number" - at 200 I'm only ounces away. I will lose my obese status at 185 - we must be about the same height (5'6"). I hate that word - it even sounds ugly! Oh - beese - horrible. Anyway, congratulations!..
MissMiss, CONGRATULATIONS! You rock!.
Add me to the list of 5'6" people who is looking forward to 185 and no longer being obese!!!..
Thanks for all the "congrats" and words of encouragement. I love it here!!..
Missmiss...i bet that feels really good..i dread the OB word too!!..you will never see it again!..
I know exactly what you mean!! I always just considered myself a little chubby, but never "obese" and when I calculated my BMI and it told me I was obese I was shocked! I can't believe I never realized how big I really am. Seeing that horrid word makes me want to work even harder though, so I can finally be "healthy"!..
