I'm normal

Well, I'm probably not "normal" in life, but I am normal according to my BMI chart. When I started trying to lose weight, my BMI was 30. Right on the Overweight/Obese line. As of Monday, I have crossed into the Normal range. I think it's only by about half a pound, but I don't care. I still have a few more pounds to go in order to reach my goal, so hopefully by the time I get there I will be squarely in the Normal range.

It has been another crazy work week for me. I have been going non-stop from the time I get up until I go to bed. Not great for the exercise schedule. I've managed to get some walking in, but not much else. This weekend I have promised myself that no matter what work is waiting for me (yes, I work weekends too), I am going to set aside time for myself to do 2 really great workouts. I don't know if I will go to the gym or try to get outside for a 4-5 mile walk each day, but whatever I do, I know I will enjoy it. I didn't realize how much I would miss working out.

Hope everyone is having a great week!


  1. Congrats on getting in the normal range!! Woohoo!

  2. I'm glad your normal, yeah!! Also glad you're feeling better. That's happened to me where I've lost five pounds because I was sick for a week. I wonder if there are any studies on that. Is it fat you lose when your sick or muscle?

    I like your determination to get those two work-outs in. I have two to get in tomorrow too.

  3. Hi Melissa,

    Just checking in on you - hope you are okay!
