New BMI = 40.94

Aha!  Reached another milestone.  The BMI is now under 41!

Next milestone in 0.8 lbs, when I’ll have removed 75.  After that in 0.7 lbs I’ll see a number on the scale I haven’t seen in many many years.

And after THAT…  Well, coming up in a few milestones from now is a really really BIG milestone in this whole BMI-chasing project, because  (in 6.1 lbs from now), I will officially be OUT of the “morbid obesity”, “severe obesity”, and “class III obesity” categories, and in simply “class II obesity.”  Which is a big, big, big deal health-wise.

I can’t wait.

But one step at a time.  I’ll focus on getting the 0.8 off for now.



  1. Wahoo! Now how will you celebrate?

    • Hmm. Not sure. Any suggestions?

      A “not-over-the-hill” or rather, “not-so-soon-to-be-under-it” party? With black crepe paper and a casket-shaped cake with lilies on it and out-of-season Halloween decorations like skeletons and gravestone rubbings?

      You tell me! 🙂

  2. I totally understand the “getting out of the 40’s” thing. Once I got into the 30’s, I felt like a skinny B. It was so huge for me, and I was like, who I do tell? Can I really go to work and say “Hey you guys, my BMI is 36!” 🙂 ha ha….Great job on this, I’ve enjoyed reading up on your blog today. Thanks for acquainting yourself to me, I look forward to walking the rest of the journey with you….

    • Since you work in a hospital, I imagine you *COULD* go up to people and say, “hey, my BMI is 36!” 🙂

      I don’t work in health care, but I do it anyway, ‘cuz I need to keep my support network interested and informed… 😉

      Had fun reading up on your blog, too. I like your sense of humor and attitude.

  3. BMI 40.94 I was just amazed at all the hard work you’ve been up to Fitness Room, Riding 20 miles on a bike, dieting. Keep up the good work we would like to have you around for a very long time. This is my first time on a blog. I’m not certain what to do. I was just going to tell you that I read a wonderful book
    Alex and Me.

    • Hi Pat!

      Good to hear from you!

      Yes, I’m working on trying to improve my life expectancy and quality of life… This time hopefully for the LAST time! 😮 I haven’t gone 20 miles on a bike yet, though.

      I’ll look into Alex and Me.

      Give everyone at home my regards! 🙂
