Normal BMI

Hey everyone!

I am back in Vermont which is a great feeling. It is so beautiful here, and although there are some more stressful things happening, life is really great these days. The biggest piece of news I have to share though...


IS MY BMI IS WITHIN THE NORMAL RANGE! I weighed in at 163.4 this morning, which put my BMI at 24.8! For the first time I can probably remember I technically don't "need to" lose weight, and that is such a trip.

My weight loss journey isn't completely done - I certainly have loftier goals to strive for, but I feel like the big arc is coming to an end.

Some stats:

I have lost over 106lbs
My BMI went from 41 to 24.8
I was squeezing into 18/20 jeans, now I wear 8/10/29s...
I had to buy dresses in the 22-24 range, now I am comfortably in size 12 dresses.
I was a 42DD or E before. Now I'm a 36DD, which could be my fav stat of all!

I think I need to be reminded how far I've come:




And now... I need some new pics, but here are some good ones for comparison:






I am so excited to know the band and I have done our jobs and successfully gotten me to a healthy weight... I had never dared dream I'd get to this place.
