Obese No More

I am ECSTATIC to post that I am no longer obese, according to BMI calculators ever where. This morning I weighed in at 215 (also note, a new low for me!!) and this puts me at 29.99 BMI which means I'm out of the 30's which means I'm not considered obese anymore! Though I know those charts are just an estimate, and don't take in to account lean body mass ect. It's still nice to be out of that range!

Another victory...I am now 97.5kg's, so I am out of the triple digit's FOREVER in kilograms, whoooo hooooo.

So I've been working out really hard the last little while, thurs I was starting to feel iffy, woke up achy ect but still plugged on.. Friday I was not well. Headache, achy all over, very irritable. I came to the conclusion that i've been over training. My weight was not shifting so i'd work out harder ect. I was doing my best to keep my calories up, but had a few days of low calories (1300 range) so that coupled with hard workouts = feeling really sick. I really do equate it to over training because I never got sick/flu/poops ect. I'm still not feeling 100% but about 90% today. I have now not worked out for 3 days and have dropped 4lbs, so that also tells me my body needed a break!

I'm going to switch up my routine. Cutting out some cardio and start doing a weight/body weight exercises 3x a week and the other 2 days will be cardio, one day i'll do HITT the other i'll do a long slow run. I'll stick with this for about 6 weeks, the rest of the summer. I'm hoping to be around 203-207 range come labor day weekend. My challenges will be when I go to my inlaws the last week of July, but i'll just do my best to pack healthy, clean foods. We will have our trailer so that will help to have my own mini kitchen!

oh and I did buy a bikini for some body shots, as I know it's important to document, and I think better in a bikini than my full piece, BUT i never plan to wear it out in public. It's an XL and fits right now, but bulges out some fat in places still :) this next week it's my goal to get hubby to take pictures so I can post some progress pics!

so to recap:
Start weight: 268
Current weight:215
Total lost:53lbs

Start BMI: 37.4
Current BMI: 29.99

Start KG's: 121.5kg
current KG's: 97.5kg

50lbs lost, and no plans to find them, EVER!

So I am pretty sure I hit my 50lbs mark this morning.. I say pretty sure because my scale jumps all over the place, drives me nuts! but I'll go with it.
So this is the lowest i've weighed in probably 7years. and the first time i've hit the 50lb mark, so kinda excited! Next big # is 214 'cause then i'm out of the stupid 'obese' range for BMI, even thought I know i should not put any clout in BMI's but it still bugs me.

My hubby is away right now with the kids, and i'm enjoying a much needed break. Though I do have some guilt/hesitation with it, but still very much enjoying it. I did a really great work out yesterday, but also learned a lesson. I NEED to be drinking more water. My hammies ceased up on me and almost made me fall to the ground. I drank about 1/2 my water bottle and they got better. I had not drank any water that morning and did a hard cardio work out just prior. So lesson learned.

I'm almost finding it hard to eat all my calories and drink all my water (min 2L a day) I don't know how people are hungry if they are eating nutrient rich foods and drinking all the water they should. I feel like I am constantly full and have to force my self to eat and drink, lol!

I bought a new work out outfit yesterday. A yellow Adidas dry t-shirt (bright yellow!) and some black stretchy Capri's. I am feeling more confident to wear fitted stuff to the gym and frankly my old work out shorts were too big, starting to look sloppy! I also bought a new sports bra as the girls were getting away from me during working out. It's the only time in my life I feel it a pain to be large busted (36D) so today they are double bagged, lol. A under wire sports bra + a tank style sports bra. We'll see if they can calm down a bit today :)
