Weigh Day (Once Again)

Down 1 lb. (.45 kg.) this week for a total loss of 105 lbs. (47.6 kg.).  I now weigh 175 lbs. (79.4 kg.).  My BMI is 26.6 so I'm still overweight for another 11 lbs. (4.9 kg.) or so.

I wonder how much my extra skin weighs? 

Have a great Wednesday!

Thanks for your support, and you are such an inspiration!! Who cares about extra skin, when you are so clearly fabulous!! Keep on rockin!!

It seems like that last little bit before "normal" takes so long. You are doing wonderful. You must be so tall. 175 on me is way obese! I don't hit normal until 136!

My friend's husband is a plastic surgeon, they live next door. I asked him this like 2 years ago and he said it varies (obviously) but generally around 8 pounds if it's from a combination of former obesity & pregnancy. He guessed that's what mine would weigh if I got to my goal. Do you follow Angie who just had a TT? She might have said how much skin they removed from her....or how much it weighed I mean.

You look great! Although it is an interesting point about how much the excess skin would weigh. I am told that skin can just take a while to get back to where it needs to be so maybe it just needs some more time...

Good for you Amanda. You are such an inspiration to those of us still struggling to take off the weight.

Yay! You're losses are so steady...I've wondered about the extra skin too. I wonder if I get down to maybe only 10-15 lbs from goal if the skin removal would get me there. Hmm....Still have a lot of time to think about it. LOL.

Terrific job!!

Ronnie said...

Yay for 175! :) You're awesome. And a 26.6 BMI? Even though I really don't believe in BMI charts' reliability, that's still amazing. :) You're a great success story!

You know, I rarely ever check my BMI scale...mainly bc it is always so depressing and I hate it. I did check it this morning and true to form...depressing. I am at a 29.something BMI which is at the tippy top of overweight and almost obese.

blah!

But, even though it doesnt sound like it...I am happy for you! hahah

I have been asking myself the same thing about the extra skin. I swear I have a small world tucked underneath it.

Jess said...

One step closer!!! Oh how I long to be in that Normal BMI range for once! I have like 15lbs to go for that!
