I was going to entitle this post, "I'm Overweight!" to celebrate transitioning from having a BMI considered obese to overweight, but I'm not quite there yet. I weighed in at 197.6 (89.6 kg.) this morning, down 1.6 (.7 kg.)from last week. I'm actually .4 lbs. (.2 kg.) from a BMI under 30 which just confirms my suspicion that BMIs are a bunch of hooey.
Maybe I won't feel that way once I get below the "obese" range, but I really don't think I look that fat. Or maybe I just have a skewed perception of how I look and what fat looks like.
Really I'm pretty happy with where I'm at. I don't mind the slow losses. I like how I look, at least in clothes. I feel attractive.
But I wanted to bring up the subject of weighing. I weigh myself once a week, three times of every four weeks. "Why the skipped week?", you might ask. Well, I guess it is because I don't lose during that fourth week. In fact sometimes I'm up a bit. I attribute it to hormones. If you really want to know, it is probably when I'm ovulating. But it still messes with my mind to step on the scale and not see a loss so I just don't step on that week! I know many of you weight every day and I honestly don't know how you do that. I have so much anxiety about the scale, I can't imagine putting myself through it each day. So how often do you weigh yourself and why?
