New BMI = 34.99

Filed under: health — origamifreak @ 8:41 am

Woo-Hoo!  As of this morning I have a BMI under 35.  That puts me into “class I obesity.”  Next BMI stop: “overweight.”

🙂  🙂  🙂

I now have 0.76 lbs to remove in order to hit my next 5% net mark.  Which I’d projected to meet on July 27.  I think I can make it, if I stay within reasonable calories per day.

These 5% net marks break the mass removal into roughly equal chunks, difficulty-wise.  I have met 7 of them.  This will be number 8.  There are 8 remaining.  This means that soon I will have reached the halfway mark in terms of actual effort on this mass reduction project.  Which is kind of stunning, because it means the End is Finally starting to come into Sight.



  1. YAY for you!
    In the book Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks the phenomena the article you referenced below is described in regard to amputee ghost limb pain. The best way to retrain the mind is to use mirrors that allow the amputee to finagle the image they see–when they see their intact limb via mirror in the same place their amputated limb is, new neuronal connections can be formed which help eventually eliminate the pain in the amputated limb.

    You taking photos of yourself in front of a mirror to look at is operating in a similar fashion to retrain the roads in your brain. Great idea.
