Default Where am I supposed to be weight wise? BMI, self perception

Hi everyone,

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?

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

I don't think you're looking at it wrong at all!!! I have a 'goal number' listed here, but I've always said that "I want to be comfortable and happy with ME." I really can't put a number on that

I know what you mean - I told my surgeon I found it frustrating that my personal goal weight would still put me in the overweight range... he told me not to get too hung up on the BMI charts because they don't take build, bone structure, etc into consideration. He'd like his parents to be at a BMI under 30 (the point at which you're classified obese) - but if it's not under 25 (the point at which you're no longer considered overweight) - so be it!

I agree with the others. Is your heart healthy, did you build muscle? I think that's a good indicator of health too. Be healthy in more ways than just that number on the scale.

Look at all the positve changes that have happened to you as a result of the weight loss. I beleive that most of us opted for the WLS to be healthy. Sometimes we can get too caught up in the "numbers". I was talking to my nut today about that. I was telling her that chronic dieters such as muself have looked at the numbers in our clothes and on the scales for so many years.. it is hard to change. But after WLS, it is hard to focus on the fact that we are healthier without focusing on a specific number that we want to be at. If you are happy with how you feel... then give yourslef permission to be content with where you are at. i do not agree with the charts very much anyway. You look great! celebrate your life !!!!!
