My BMI

I think BMI stands for Body Mass Index -- basically it tells you what your percentage of fat is. Mine WAS 68%. It is now 62%. I have to remember that even if I "only" lost seven pounds in a week, I am still 6% less in the BMI arena.

It takes a lot for me to honestly post my weight/BMI here. I just feel that it's time to stop hiding things mostly from myself. If I tell the world via my blog (yeah because everyone reads my blog, of course..lol) then I figure there's no way I can hide any longer.

I think that is a good thing. I watched Oprah the other day and it was about weight loss and she said it was really important for her to 'own" the weight first.
I thought that was so stupid until I tried to really own mine.It was harder than I thought.

I know her weightloss is nothing compaired to what you are going through, but I think she's a smart cookie.
You are brave and strong and a total inspiration.
Keep it up Lin. You are doing great.

It would be very hard for me to tell the world what I weigh. I know I'm a big girl, but it's hard telling the real number, I don't even like to tell hubby, you are a beautiful, brave woman. Keep blogging about it. You give me hope.
