Where am I supposed to be weight wise? BMI, self perception
Okay, I have a few questions and thoughts and was wondering what other people are thinking.
I am 5 foot 6 inches tall and am currently weighing in at 186 lbs I believe my BMI is right at 30. I feel totally great. And I feel like I am looking pretty dang good. I am wearing a size 14 which I haven't worn in forever! My surgery doctor wouldn't pin down a particular weight that I needed to be at the last time I saw him. In all honesty, right now, if I did not lose another pound I believe I would be completely happy. I do feel upset after losing in upwards of 80 lbs after being morbidly obese that I am still classified "overweight" and "obese". I mean what the heck is wrong with that?? Shouldn't there be another classification for us on the way down?
I don't feel like I am in a huge hurry to lose weight at this point because I am not having any sagging skin or in need of any further surgery (aside from the fact I still have giant boobs)!
Is the fact that I don't feel like I am in a hurry to lose weight right? Should I be looking at this differently? In my own mind I have less than 30 lbs to lose...or at least that is what I think. I look at myself and I feel pretty small although I felt pretty dang large on my way up at this weight.
Or am I looking at this all wrong?
