My BMI is finally NORMAL!
As I've promised from my earlier post (end August, just before the Fasting month), so here's my latest BMI results!
From being at BMI of 40++ (off the doctor charts - see my earlier post),
this is what I had said:
***my goals are to be within the normal BMI (18.5-24.9), I'm close to it, but not yet. When I started, I used to be at BMI rating of 40++ (when the Doctor tries to calculate my BMI, she turns her little 'BMI wheel' (just like when the doctor checks for women ovulation cycle), and mine is off the wheels totally. The doctor tried to act cool, and just assumed 40++. I was totally devastated!).
Today, my BMI is at 24.6 (about 1 plus year later)..
I am on top of the world!!! (click on the link, I just had to have that song played!)
If I can do it, you can do too!!!
here's the BMI result!
Here's my updated weight lost chart, from ever since I started.
yes, it has been extremely slow since I past the 80kg mark, and took me almost 5 months to shed an extra 10kg.. tough, sloww.. but most importantly.. there's progress.
Actually, I'm not worried at all.. because I know, my exercise routine has increased tremendously for the past months.. now my interval training burst at 9+kmph on average (sometimes it burst up to 10+kmph). I'm able to bench press at 30kg with 8-12reps! and just recently, able to do chin-ups for 5 reps for 3 sets!!
So, who said that we can't gain muscles while losing the fat?
I'm way overdue for my medical check-up with the wellness doctor - made an appointment, and shall update you all the progress I've made thus far.
btw, I've never ever ever ever thought a normal weight BMI is something I could ever achieved..ever. But I did!!!! whooaaa... that's an accomplishment. I should treat myself with some nice choc almond fudge ice-cream or deep dish double cheese pizza or warm mud pie chocolate cake or even a nice daun pisang nasi lemak??!!!
I think you know the answer.
have a great weekend.
