Another Weigh-In Bites the Dust

This week I lost exactly one pound, for a total of 21 lbs lost. Not my best performance, but also most definitely not my worst. The official weight is 153.4 lbs!

And here's the thing...

I have a method to weighing myself at home that (I think) yields the most reliable numbers. It's first thing in the morning, after going to the bathroom, without any clothes on. TMI? Too bad. It removes any factors like difference in clothes weight or what I've eaten throughout the day.

Anyway, on the day I found out I was pregnant, I weighed myself exactly as described above and I weighed-in at 152 lbs.

Today I weighed myself the exact same way before getting dressed to go to WW, and I weighed 151.6 lbs! So technically, I'm below my pre-pregnancy weight. However, I am being stubborn and not truly claiming that as official until I hit 152 or below at my WW meeting.

But still!!! I'm pretty excited!!!

And...I'm only 3.4 lbs away from saying goodbye to the 150's forever!

AND! My BMI is now officially below the 'obese' line. I'm ashamed to say that I was ever in the 'obese' range, but I can now say that I am officially only overweight. Only another 24 lbs to go before I am in the 'healthy' weight range! And heck, 20 lbs only took me 10 weeks before, so this will be a snap!

You know, being short is the pits. If I had only 3 more inches, my BMI would be 27 instead of just below 30. Lame.

Yeah, being a bit taller helps... when I am 150 I am still just barely in the "normal" range. :-)
