This blog post is a few weeks late, simply because it is old news and I have been a healthy weight for a couple of weeks now.
But it still feels like it was yesterday….when I jumped on the scales (well my Wii Fit Plus) and it told me that I am in fact a healthy weight. No longer obese, no longer over weight…..just normal.
When it says “Normal” of course it feels amazing and even better I have a BMI right now of 24.1.
It might even be lower than this but I have promised myself I will weigh myself monthly as I find I worry too much about my weight and instead should now be concentrating on the toning side of things. So my next weigh in won’t be until early September when I am hoping I could have shifted another stone.
But why is it with a woman’s BMI that the word “normal” is just not quite good enough? I have of course lost more than five stone now but it is not by ideal weight. My ideal weight is to fit into my little black dress for Halloween and I am about a dress size off that.
Thankfully with the help of my learning to walk before you can run podcasts I am on course to tone up just in time!
Right now I am a slim size 14 but of course I want to be a size 10/12.
We are also trying for our third child and I want to be at target and have achieved my weight loss, before I put another pregnancy onto my body.
What is amazing for me though is that I can now walk down the street and people are no longer staring at me because I am the super sized person. I just blend into the crowd and I am now just an average statistic.
Now when I see an obese person in the street I remind myself that I am never going to allow myself the chance to get that fat again and that this is how I want to look and how I will look.
I am also excited to enter the final stages of My Weight Loss Dream and it feels fantastic to be sharing it with you all and thanks for reading my blog and following my dream with me.
I am also going to save personal photos of myself until I wear my little black dress for Halloween and then put together some before and after pictures because I wouldn’t be a blogger if I didn’t would I?
