I'm 'Normal'

Today, I weighed in at 194.2. According to the BMI charts, this places me, finally, at a 'Normal Weight'!

No longer obese, no longer overweight, I'm Normal. Which means, according to most of my friends here in America, that I'm 'skinny'.

Yup, here in America, overweight is the new normal, normal is skinny, and skinny becomes 'OMG!' Being the contrarian that I am, I'm happy to be 'Normal' in America, that is to say 'skinny' compared to the overweight norm.

In a sense, I feel done now, but I will push on a few more pounds to hit 190, then transition to a maintenance phase.
