It has been more than a month since my last update on my weight loss journey. I am still using the Lose It app and website, so that is where my updates occur more frequently.
I lost 22.8 pounds.
BMI went down 2.9 points which means I went down a class of obesity.
In my last post about this (see last update, above) I spoke about the stages of obesity. Sadly, the previous link I had used to show this is no longer working. Even sadder? The CDC website has no information about the stages of obesity. I am glad that I have been demoted, so to speak, to a lower stage. I still have a long way to go. My weight loss in September has been slower than I would have liked. Considering I have gained in September, historically speaking, I am grateful for the losses I have seen. I lost 3.4 pounds this month. I could have gained; I could have stayed the same. I lost! Even with a plantar fasciitis/heel spur flare-up. (ouch) Oh, and I have had some very serious life events happening that also would have sent me to the bakery/fridge/you-name-it in the past.
I am changing my eating patterns. I am changing how I view food. I am changing my emotional response patterns. I am showing myself respect and love by doing so. See? It all ties together!
