After 3 weeks of losing 1 lb (total) I dropped 4 lbs all at once.*
As of this morning's weekly weigh-in, it's official: it's day #425 on plan and I sit here at exactly 140 lbs.
The weight I was for most of college, the weight I dreamed of last summer, the weight I set as my goal.
As I type this, I am wearing size 8R blue jeans from Target, with a size small long-sleeved shirt. I wouldn't have been caught dead in either a year ago, or heck, 4 months ago, as these are the types of clothing that always made me feel fat. I don't even think I wore form-fitting long-sleeved shirts at this weight in college, so self-conscious was I.
I have actually been thinking I will probably lose 5 more lbs, but hey, today is officially the day I "made it."
Onward to maintenance! (Somebody hold me.) :-)
Going to see about a few more lbs, as I think I might be more comfortable a little less (and would like a 5 lb leeway, at whichever weight I end up). Then my next big goal will be my 1 year date of maintenance. I'd like to let myself join the national weight control registry. I seem to remember that's a 3-month kept-it-off thing, but I might join later, not sure yet.
Well, anyway! Going on again! I will maybe post some before/after pics; see what I have that's recent. I do have some of me in a (forgiving, high-waisted) bikini (!!) but they're from last month. Not a big diff, though. I love this 100 lb forum, and all of you, and I plan to post in the maintainer's, as well.
*Strangely, this is the third such 'whoosh' I'd had, and all 3 times were when I didn't do my cardio routine for 4-5 days in a row -- the other times because of taking trips, and this time because of my mom visiting.
