Today’s topic is “Day 8 – a photo that makes you angry/sad.” I’m going to go with sad. Or frustrated. Or a mixture of both. I am about to show you something that I haven’t even show Hubs.
I cannot believe I just publicly disclosed my current weight.
I am just under 5’5”. Which means that my current BMI is 34.4. Which places me in the Obese Class 1.
The good news is that I’ve lost 25 pounds since this time last year, which lowered my BMI from 38.8. Which I know is something to be proud of. But, the stupid scale has been stuck for a month (maybe more). And I am just sick of it. I know it’s my own fault. I need to drink more water. I need to make healthier decisions. I need to start tracking my calories again. I need to be more conscious of portion sizes. I need to exercise more… etc, etc, etc.
The number on the scale doesn’t bother me nearly as bad as the BMI. My goal? To have a BMI within normal range. Which means I have roughly 57 pounds to go.
So, on Monday I spoke with a weight coach on the phone (a benefit available to me through Hubs insurance).
We set small goals for now.
I also installed the Lose-It app on my new iPod, so that I can more easily track my calorie intake.
Here’s hoping that by this time next year, I have shaved at least 5 points off my BMI, if not all 10.
