If You Look To Your Right...

You will see that my weight ticker has gone to 29.9 BMI. For those who are unfamiliar with BMI, it's a measure of body fat based on your height and weight. Here are the different BMI categories:

Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
Overweight = 25-29.9
Obesity = >30

Now you probably understand why 29.9 is such a big deal. Doctors everywhere will tell you that being obese means you are at a much greater risk for nearly every disease known to mankind. It's scary! So, now that I'm back in the overweight category, it's not *so* bad. (Doctors still don't like people to be overweight, but it's much better than being obese.) Of course, my goal is to be in the normal weight category, but that will come in time. My next milestone will be to cross my pre-pregnancy weight (141). Should only be a few more weeks!!!
