Mini Rant

So early 2012 I was 180lbs and I hated it. Some of my friends tried to tell me that I wasn't fat. However I'm 5'1" and that is obese according to my BMI. Anyhow fast forward to now, I'm 158 (160 depending on when I weigh lol) and now my same friends are telling me that I am too skinny!!! WHAT?!!? I've finally gotten from obese to overweight BMI wise and I still have more to go. Why are some people so negative?!  This is why I like this group, you guys are so positive.

Lol! Yeah, I'll pass. That is awesome though, and it inspires me not to give up.

Awesome job! I'm also 5'1". I started at 202 and am down to 187. What is your goal weight? Mine is 130 but its so close to the overweight BMI that I wonder if it shouldn't be less.
Ps, I think you're inspiring.

My mom is 5', she stopped at 130, she could lose more I think, but she's 53 and feels good about 130.

This first pic is the one that inspired the "you're too skinny" remarks. The second one was taken in Dec 2011 I really don't see that much of a difference, except that my baby is growing up!! lol I certainly don't think I'm "skinny"

I think you look fabulous.  Sometimes people freakout because they dont know if your depriving yourself and they dont want you to literally waste away (all to often women take drastic measures to lose weight) however if your doing it healthy and your making yourself better not just looking better but feeling better dont worry about what anyone has to say.......Do the work reap the rewards Congrats on your successes
