It’s now around seven and a half months since my Gastric Bypass surgery, and so far I’ve lost a total of 40.3 kg (6 st 5 lbs).
And as of today, I’ve also dropped down into a new BMI category. My BMI this morning is officially 34.9, so I dropped from being severely obese to only being moderately obese! Or rather, I’ve gone from obese class II to obese class I.
|18.5 – 24.9||Normal healthy weight|
|25.0 – 29.9||Overweight|
|30.0 – 34.9||Obese Class I (Moderately obese)|
|35.0 – 39.9||Obese Class II (Severely obese)|
|40 and over||Obese Class III (Very severely obese)|
On the day of my surgery my BMI was 46.3, so I was in Obese Class III – so I’ve come a long way since then. And hopefully it’s all improved my health!
My goal is to keep losing weight so that my BMI drops below 30, so that I’ll be in the Overweight category. And to do that, I need to lose about another 20 kg or 3 stones.
