Super Morbid Obesity

Once I lose 7 more pounds I will no longer be morbidly obese! I can start simply being obese. Woo-hoo! I discovered this today when I started wondering what the exact definition of ‘morbidly obese’ was. After some googling, it turns out anyone with a BMI of 40-50 is morbidly obese. If you have a BMI above 50 you’re actualy super morbidly obese. If you’re super, does that mean you have cool powers? Turns out my starting BMI was 54.9, so did I used to have the ability to fly and X-ray vision and not know it? :)

I also don’t like the word ‘obese’ not because of it’s meaning but just because it sounds funny. Obese, obese, obese, obese. It sounds incomplete, like there’s a syllable missing.
