"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

BMI

BMI is an interesting thing.

My step brother (who has lost well over 40kg in the past 18 months) and I were discussing our weight loss journeys today on the train.  (In short sentences as he is not a fan of these conversations especially on a public train!)

He is now under 100kg.  And his next milestone is 94.something which will be a BMI of 30 and he will be 'overweight' rather than 'obese'.

My BMI of 30 is at just under 78kg.  I am excited at the thought of being 'overweight'.  My SB is upset that he has worked so hard to become 'overweight'.

Very different perspectives.

While talking about my SB...  I have a confession...  he is currently only about 8kg heavier than I am...  and about 8 inches taller.  He has always been heavier than me.  It gives me a little spurt of motivation....  I figure his goal will be around 80kg (he is about 5"11) so if I get below that before he does I will be 'safe'. 

I will take whatever motivation I can get!  A little rivalry takes nothing away from how proud I am that he has taken control of his eating the way he has!  He did his first (but not last) triathalon on Sunday.  Yep, I am a proud older sister!

It's so unfair how men can lose faster than we can and eat more to boot! Go Fiona, go...
