When I first joined MF, I logged in all my weight info and when my BMI was calculated, I read that I was "obese". OMG, I never had considered myself that. I kinda figured I was chubby, but not THAT other word. Everytime I change my weight, there is that "obese" word I hate looking back at me..

Well, I just changed my weight information because I'm down a few more pounds since last time. When the BMI calculated this time, I'm only over weight now!! I'm so excited!! This is working...

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!..

Comment #2

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!..

Comment #3

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...

Comment #5

Congratulations MissMiss! That's such a wonderful accomplishment! I hope I see that myself soon!.


Comment #6

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...

Comment #7

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!!..

Comment #8

Way to Go!!!! Great job!!! I am so happy for you. That is one of my goals,too!..

Comment #9

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!!!..

Comment #11

Thanks for all the "congrats" and words of encouragement. I love it here!!..

Comment #12

Missmiss...i bet that feels really good..i dread the OB word too!! will never see it again!..

Comment #13

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"!..
