I've been obese for over 10years.

3 kids and 1 divorce later and the NHS says today my BMI is overweight!!

I'm ridiculously pleased grin blush

You celebrate you! Glad you are pleased.

I don't mind being slightly overweight myself.

My mother had cachexia before she died, and I have a horror of being thin. But I know that's my own issue.

Well done! You must be feeling and looking much healthier - do you plan to treat yourself to some new clothes to celebrate?

Because I've never been "overweight", it's taken me 4 stone to get here! I'm going to carry on but still! Someone called me skinny today.

Clearly a MASSIVE lie but still, "skinny" shock

No, not at all - bloody well done you! Four stone is a huge achievement.

Thank you, I went out and bought a pair of jeans today and a top for the company do. Thought that was a better celebration than chocolate wink

Well done you grin

I know exactly how you feel as I've just reached that milestone myself and it's taken some dedication.
