*edit - I'm back. See my second post in this thread on page 2!*
In January of this year I found this site - this was the same day that I decided that I was going to take my life back and start living healthy.
After going through the various forums, I found a home in the 300+ club (plus a couple others) since that is where I felt I belonged. I thought the 100 lb. Club was for people who were in their 100s and I didn't think that I could handle seeing posts by people who thought they were fat when they weighed 130+ pounds less than I, so I stayed away from that sort of discouragement.
When I was around my 60 pound lost mark, I realized that this forum was not what I thought it was - I thought it was for people who had already lost 100 pounds so I decided that I was going to use "posting in the 100 pound Club forum" as my 100 pounds lost reward.
Around the 80 pound lost mark, I realized I was STILL wrong, and felt like a tool to boot, but I only had 20 pounds to go to reach my original reward goal so kept with it but started reading most of the posts. I've been a lurker ever since.
Well - short story long - after hovering around the 96-99 pound loss for the past 2 long weeks, it finally happened this morning - 101.2 pounds lost and my reward post is nigh!
So hello all! This is a happy day for me (really? I have lost 100 pounds in 7 months and 1 day - shenanigans!!!), on the eve of a very exciting weekend (going to see my family for the first time since my weight loss and they don't even know I have been "dieting") and I am just giddy.
Sorry for the rambling - I'm having a hard time containing myself today
