While I knew that the day was creeping up on me, I had no idea that today would be the day when I woke up. I had to meet with my personal trainer today and my alarm didn’t go off. So, I was very rushed this morning. Nonetheless, I hopped on the scale like I do every morning (I know. I know. You shouldn’t weigh every day. I don’t want to hear it.). I was happy to see a small loss from yesterday. Then, it happened. I looked at my iPad (I have a Renpho smart scale), and there it was looking back at me. BMI 29.9. For those of you that do not know, the world health organization (and consequently physicians everywhere) classify individuals as obese if there BMI is 30 or above. It’s absolutely surreal.
So, I have now lost about 98 pounds and have 50-55 pounds to go to feel like my ideal self. What a massive milestone this is, though. It’s completely surreal. I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported me through this journey (and continues to support me as I strive for my deal self). Stay tuned for an updated before and after in the not to distant future!
