I am not Obese

The first time my name and "obese" were used in the same sentence--to my knowledge--was in the early 90's. I had to have a physical before I began working in a hospital-owned daycare.  The doctor wrote a note stating something like, "Julie is morbidly obese woman who is in good health."  I was shocked and embarrassed. Yes, I had put on some weight (about 10 pounds a year), but obese? And morbidly obese?  But I didn't make changes. It was another 10 years later--when my Daddy died--that I first got on the diet roller coaster. Then my weight went down (as low as 220) and up (as high as 306) a few times.  But I always remained "obese".  No longer.  As of this morning, I am OVERWEIGHT!
