Weigh In 7-15-17: I’m one of THOSE People

Comments 2 Standard

So I got to weigh in this week despite my 2 week long no break from work.  I lost 3 pounds!

This puts me to the point in my weight loss that I only have to lose 5.4 pounds to be at a “healthy” weight.  Like not obese, not overweight, but HEALTHY.

This is my goal.  Sure I could probably lose a few vanity pounds after that, but I’m not to much worried about that.  This time around this whole journey has been about being the best I can be health wise, and it has made all the difference in the world.

People are always asking me “are you done?”  “do you really want to lose more weight?” so when a friend of mine asked me that this weekend and I replied “I want to lose about 5 more pounds” I totally understood her eye roll.

I remember being the heavier person that just wanted to smack the crap out of some skinny person that whined about wanting to lose 5 more pounds.  I don’t consider myself skinny at all, but it is still a little comical to have been on both sides of that fence.

  1. I totally get this. I’m under 20 to “normal BMI” weight. When people say “but you look good now” I have to remind them that I didn’t do all of this (I’m down 80) to still be considered overweight. This doesn’t go over well sometimes


    • I hear you Maggie! I’ve been getting the “You are getting to skinny STOP” for about the last 15 pounds. I wear a size 10 right now, and at 5’8 I know I’m not a twig!
