[LMB] OT: Fat Kids?

I must not have been clear, again. It’s not that I don’t think that I can lose 20 pounds. It’s that I don’t think I can or should lose 55. I don’t want to get down to my high school weight. It’s just that the times that I have gotten near where I think I should be, I have people, people who should know better, including doctors, trot out the BMI and tell me that I should lose 20 more.
I just started the Noom and I’m trying to do it right. I’m not trying to lose 55 pounds. I also don’t want my granddaughters to be pushed to loose weight that they shouldn’t.

Very true.

Well, I guess different people react differently. I was 280 pounds at 5’3” around the beginning of the year, but I joined a weight loss program and I’m now 230 pounds… Still very bad, but better. My current goal is 200, and then my ultimate, ultimate goal is my high school weight of 150.

So losing weight of over 20 pounds is possible. :)
