The 60-Pound Challenge Update & Other Observations

As my signature reflects, I am (as of today) 1/3 of the way to reaching the goal in the "Lose 60 lbs in One Year" Challenge!  I have about 9.5 months in which to lose 40 more pounds.  I think that is more doable than I first thought.

My BMI has fallen into the 43s ... it is six points below where I was 92 days ago.  Amazing!  In fact, it is down a full point just since starting this current mini-goal.  Just to give it perspective, I am down OVER 10 POINTS since last December, when my BMI was 54.5

Now, weighing in at 271, what does a BMI of 43.7 mean exactly?  It means I'm still carrying about 118 lbs too much on my frame, but that is changing every week. 

My current mini-goal is to get down to 247 (leaving the Morbidly Obese category behind).  I'm officially less than 25 pounds from reaching that goal.  But nearer to home, I'm just a few pounds from kissing the 270s good-bye forever!  I am so excited, I can't wait to see 260-something!!  I'm looking forward, and moving onward and downward!!

Day 92 ... and I am having a GREAT day!


  1. Congrats on your progress. Your post has reminded me I got a BMI/fat monitor 3 years ago and only have used it a few times. I'm gonna go put new batteries in and take it. :)

    Keep at it. I wish you the best!

  2. Keep going can do this!!!!
