Normal? I haven’t been that in years! May 15, 2008

It’s official. I am “normal,” and that is a new thing. Or an old thing. I have been overweight since 1995, and was classified as obese from about 2000-2007 (based on my BMI). I dropped about 36 lbs last year and hovered at the bottom of the “overweight” class. The winter was rough for me and I stopped running – and stopped losing weight. I actually gained 4 lbs back! Well, once Spring hit things are back on track, and I am now at the high end of the “normal” class. Sweet! I have a way to go to reach my goal weight, but I am going to continue to focus primarily on running and eating smart. The weight is taking care of itself.

Hey Joe, congrats!

I’m just over the overweight line according to my BMI, and I’m getting back into running after an on-again off-again relationship with it for years. Have to say that, among other things, your blog has helped motivate me. So thanks

Well done Joe! That’s a major achievement. It’s still a ways off for me but I’m getting there. And boy does the running help!
