BMI 46 pounds later

This is what the BMI calculator said about my weight back in October.  Scary!

You have a BMI of 43.08.
BMI is over 40 (Obese Class 3 : Morbid Obesity)
With a BMI of 40+ you have an extremely high risk of weight-related disease and premature death. Indeed, you may have already been suffering from a weight-related condition. For the sake of your health it is very important to see your doctor and get specialists help for your condition.

Morbidly obese.  Morbidly means deathly.  Obesity is a disease caused by unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits.  This is a disease that was set to kill me.  They don't sugar coat it do they!?!

This is today.  Not quite 7 months later.

You have a BMI of 34.77.
BMI is between 30-34.99 (Obese Class 1)
Individuals with a BMI of 30-34.99 are in a physically unhealthy condition, which puts them at risk for serious ilnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, gall bladder disease, and some cancers. This holds especially true if you have a larger than recommended Waist Size. These people would benefit greatly by modifying their lifestyle. Ideally, see your doctor and consider reducing your weight by 5-10 percent. Such a weight reduction will result in considerable health improvements.

Still obese but in class one!  I celebrated getting into class 2 and I've been checking my BMI the last few weeks because I knew I was getting close to being out if it!  Today I did it!

Only 28 lbs to go until I'm no longer obese!

You have a BMI of 29.86.
BMI is between 25 and 29.9 (Overweight)
People falling in this BMI range are considered overweight and would benefit from finding healthy ways to lower their weight, such as diet and exercise. Individuals who fall in this range are at increased risk for a variety of ilnesses. If your BMI is 27-29.99 your risk of health problems becomes higher. In a recent study an increased rate of blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease was recorded at 27.3 for women and 27.8 for men. It may be a good idea to check your Waist Circumference and compare it with the recommended limits

And only 57 lbs to go until a healthy BMI!

You have a BMI of 24.89.
BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9 (Normal Weight)
People whose BMI is within 18.5 to 24.9 possess the ideal amount of body weight, associated with living longest, the lowest incidence of serious ilness, as well as being perceived as more physically attractive than people with BMI in higher or lower ranges. However, it may be a good idea to check your Waist Circumference and keep it within the recommended limits.
