Not obese anymore!

Hi there, I’ve been following this awesome community for motivation for the past three months while doing CICO with myfitnesspal for the first time, going to the gym, and hitting 10k steps 6 days a week. I just stepped on the scale this morning and found out that I’ve lost 20 lbs and have a BMI of ~29.9 (i.e. overweighr, not obese)! I’m mainly losing weight for health reasons which I’ve been making good progress on (blood pressure, resting heart rate, sleep apnea, knee problems, etc.), but something about the word obese always made me feel embarrassed and ashamed so I’m so glad that I’m free!

edit: thanks for the kind words guys! hang in there đŸ™‚
