Default 100lbs in 8 months!

I am extremely proud to announce that I have lost 101 lbs since April 9th 2010. It has not always been an easy journey, and has been an emotional ride. It is one I am beginning to understand and accept for what it is.
I am so very grateful to everyone at this site for their advice, support and occasional kick in the *** that we all need from time to time
I consider myself very fortunate- I have a beautiful and very loving family, a great home and a job I love. Now I have a body that I am beginning to accept and appreciate.
When I began this journey I never imagined I would be writing this at this point, but with sheer grit, determination and drive (and a plan that suits me) I have succeeded. For the first time in my life I believe I can get to goal, and stay there.
My plan is loosely based around the Dukan diet. I have never read his book, and could never stick to something that did not suit me. So here are the guidelines I set for myself.
1. Porridge (oats for breakfast)
2. Protein and veg for lunch and dinner
3. No snacking, licking, nibbling!
4. No eating after 7pm
5. Drink 100 ozs water daily
6.Allow white wine
7. Weigh daily and log weight to chart changes and trends
8. Visit 3FC daily and discuss feelings
9. Tell everyone about my journey
10. Believe in myself

Thanks for reading - I really do appreciate you all

AMAZING!!!!!

That is so freakin awesome

Try picking up something that weighs 100 pounds to give you some concrete idea of just how much weight is now off of your body!

Wow, that is impressive! I bet 8 months ago you couldn't imagine losing 100 pounds in such a short time!

I'm really happy for you!

Wow that is awesome! Congratulations!! You drink a lot of water. How do you get that much down? I bet your skin and hair just glows from that much hydration. Keep up the fabulous work in 2011 and I imagine you will reach your goal!
