If I’d focused on the huge goal of losing so much weight when I started out, I would have felt overwhelmed. There’s so much inner dialogue that goes on in my head and no doubt I would have thought something along the lines of “No way am I ever going to achieve that! That’s just a pipe dream’. For some people, yes, eyes on the long term prize is what works for them but I need constant opportunities to celebrate success. And, this week, I’ve achieved another one.
Not only am I out of the super obese, morbid obese and upper obese ranges but I’ve hit the midway point of the lowest obesity category with my BMI hitting the 32.5 mark. Yay! So, I’m going to treat myself to something to celebrate and I’ll let you know what I decide on. On the days when I get frustrated with the scales, I remind myself that the figures I’m seeing now would have been my ‘no way will I get to that weight’ figures months ago! And yes, it’s hard to believe that I’ll get to 154 lbs but I will. One pound at a time!
|No longer being super obese (BMI 50+)||√|
|No longer being morbidly obese (BMI 40-49.9)||√|
|No longer being in the upper obese range (BMI 35-39.9)||√|
|No longer being obese (BMI 30-34.9)|
|No longer being overweight (BMI 25-29.9) because I’m a HEALTHY WEIGHT! (BMI 19-24)|
And, as for my weekly report card:
What’s Erika done well this week?
- I’ve lost 2 lbs
- My BMI is now in the lower 32s
- I’ve had great fun selling clothes that are now too big for me on EBay
- I’ve drunk more and now my body water levels are in the normal range
What could Erika improve on?
- Nothing this week 🙂
Erika’s next target(s):
- 3 lbs until my BMI is in the 31s
- 4 lbs until I’m under 15 stone
- 14 lbs until I’m in Onederland (yes, I’ll be less than 200 lbs)
- 17 lbs until I’m no longer obese as I’ll be overweight
Anyway folks, I’ll be back later this week about what we can do when we feel the hunger pangs…but don’t want to give in!
Love Erika xx
