Thanks pbnj.It's funny b/c DH didn't want me to get below 140 so I haven't told him how much I weigh although he suspects it's around 135 or so I think.I told him when I lost that .8# I would tell him how much total I have lost and he would be able to figure out how much I weigh and I did tell him we would have a party.Now if I can just figure out some kind of celebration that doesn't include food.
Prayers going up, SulliCat, for your SIL's niece... so many challenges for her healing...
BornTexan, I hope you can think of a super, SUPER celebration for that fabulous 200# milestone!
I'm still acclimating to the whole idea of "normal BMI".

Normal BMI!! But not "overweight" or "obese"... still getting used to those terms no longer applying. And I would never for a minute call myself thin (that's at least 10 lb less than I'll ever be!)
I don't consider myself thin either.I do have 1 sweater that when I see myself in the mirror its like I'm asking myself who that person is but its only the one sweater.I can't say I consider myself fat anymore but thin just isn't really in my vocabulary yet either.
You look awesome in that swim suit though so you are thin.
With all my baggy skin there is no way I even want to wear shorts yet.Last summer w/o the baggy skin I had no problems with wearing shorts.I will have to see how I feel about going to Curves in jeans in 100 degree weather.Prob not going to happen.
borntexan. Becky. But,but, but..... As you know we all have our 'ugly' parts. What you don't see in the picture is my very heavy lower thighs, knees and ankles and the saggy skin that some how stayed out of camera view! I will wear a suit at the pool and beach but it's long pants every where else! NO shorts. LOL. I could lose another 20 lbs and still have the thighs and legs.
But I no longer lose my breathe when climbing stairs, can get on the floor and play with my grandkids, can walk several miles without tiring and workout at gym classes. All huge pluses!!
Imagine what you could do if you could do what you imagine.
