This is huge news! Actually, I am LESS Huge. My SuperHealthyMe progress has succeeded in breaking me out of the official status of being obese.
In this episode, I document just how far I’ve come in this SuperHealthyMe lifestyle.
Wait till you hear about the weight I’ve lost and the new size of jeans I’m wearing. Hint: I no longer have to cut off that tag on the back belt area where Levis lists the waist size.
In October, I wore a size 40. Earlier in the year, it had been up to a 42.
The first thing I’d do when I came home with a new pair was cut off that sewn in label. I was too embarrassed for people to see how big they were.
Yesterday, I bought new jeans. I’ll make the reveal in the podcast. But suffice it to say, I no longer have to cut off the tag!
I also report my new BMI – Body Mass Index, the number that indicates how fat a person is.
Body Mass Index is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women.I am just over 29.
Anything over 30 is considered obese. When I began this SuperHealthyMe lifestyle in Octber, 2014, my BMI was 34
Now, it’s 29. I’m just overweight.
Here’s a link to the Mayo Clinic’s BMI Calculator if you want to see how you measure up.
|18.5 or less||Underweight|
|18.5 to 24.99||Normal Weight|
|25 to 29.99||Overweight|
|30 to 34.99||Obesity (Class 1)|
|35 to 39.99||Obesity (Class 2)|
|40 or greater||Morbid Obesity|
I also reveal how many pounds I’ve lost and how some of my other clothing sizes have dropped.
I share one of my favorite recipies, Salsa Chicken. It’s 3 1/2 ounces of skinless chicken cooked in organic chunnky salsa. Total calories are around 210. Add some steamed broccoli – with no butter – and you’ve got a great meal that totals no more than 250 calories.
