bflegg's Journal, 16 May 2012

Big drop today and an even bigger milestone: for the first time in my adult life I am in the ‘normal’ weight range -- a BMI of 24.93! According to bmi-calculator.net:

People whose BMI is within 18.5 to 24.9 possess the ideal amount of body weight, associated with living longest, the lowest incidence of serious ilness, as well as being perceived as more physically attractive than people with BMI in higher or lower ranges.

The bike home last night went okay – although the last mile of the ride is on a reasonably busy road (albeit with a bike lane). The workout this morning also went pretty well. Work is busy, but keeping me out of trouble. Looking forward to the weekend.

Be Happy!
173.8 lb Lost so far: 132.2 lb.    Still to go: 13.8 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.
