Congratulations and enjoy your achievement! I reached that marker myself a few years ago and have maintained it. Hopefully you can notice how much easier everything is and how much more everything fits. At my heaviest I was "only" about 60 lbs overweight but man did I notice after I lost it how much easier I fit in airplane seats. That was a real shocker to me.

BMI is a bs metric to begin with. At 5'9 and 173 I am classed as overweight. [Spoiler: I am not overweight but I am large boned - ex. Bra size 38B.] Good for you for feeling better about yourself but don't take this metric too seriously.
