Talking 100 pounds lost

The impossible has happened. It has started raining upside down. The Browns have won the Super Bowl. The IRS has declared 2010 as a tax free year............... and I have lost 100 pounds!

It has taken a long time, 22 months. I did not think it was possible for this 50 something body, obese for 30 years; morbidly obese for 20 years with Hypothyroidism to lose that much weight. I could not even imagine it. But I started. I had an on-plan day with some exercise and then repeated again and again. Those days mount up and the weight did come off and still is coming off.

For all of you who, like me, just don't believe it is possible, put one foot in front of another. Take one day at a time. It can be done!!!!

Thank you, airbear and volleyballsis!

Thank you, Rosinante

That means a great deal coming from you. Since we are the same height and age, I think of you as my British counterpart.

Oh I'm am SO BEYOND DELIGHTED for you!!! I can't tell you HOW MANY times I've taken inspiration from you, and remembered that if the scale isn't moving as fast as I wanted that it's okay just to stick with it.

Your 100 lb loss is a truly magnificent accomplishment!
