Default Seeing Lyn's thread reminded me - I've also lost 100 lbs!

I posted it to the daily weigh in thread, but I forgot to make my 100 lb party thread (no cake at this party, please )

I weighed 286 when I started in September of 2009 - today i weigh 184.8. I was spilling out of size 22s and 24s and today I'm wearing size 14 pants! I'm finally looking like the self I remember! I can play with my kids . My sex life is better . While I still have weight to lose (35 lbs to my initial goal weight, but I suspect I'll revise that down at some point), if I never drop another pound, I'll be satisfied here. I feel like I have my life back. I feel like a normal woman who just hates her stomach or her butt rather than someone who, well, hates herself . I don't feel like everyone is staring at me when I walk into a room. In the spirit of the current campaign aimed at gay youth to keep them from killing themselves - ladies who are just starting, or aren't sure if you want to start, or don't think you can do it so you're wondering why you should even bother trying - IT GETS BETTER. It really does. But not if you don't take action.

I don't have current pictures - I hope to have some within the next couple of weeks to show the current version of my transformation.
Countdown to NEW GOAL!

GOAL REACHED JUNE 15, 2011 !!!!
Progress Pictures Here!

Congrats!! Great job!

Although I've not gotten to 100# yet . . . I hear you. I'm down to 180something from 250something and I love walking into a room and not feeling like everyone is staring at the fat woman.

Eclipse Hi! Congratulations on a job well done!

4/22/15 My current goal is to get into the 160's. First weigh in after setting goal: 176.8
8/02/15 I was able to get back into the 160's.
My new goal is to not bounce back into the 170's and to work my way down to 160.

I started my most recent weight loss journey January 2008.
I lost 1/2 of my starting body weight and entered into maintenance May 2011.
Now the real work begins!

You can fight it, or do what you've got to do to get it done. The choice is yours. ~Dian
