100 lb. Club - I Hit My Goal!!! (Unofficially...)

10-03-2007, 07:54 AM
Ok, so it's not weigh-in day...but I saw 165 on the scale this morning!!! At long last, I've finally hit my goal. After a period of maintenance this summer and lots of changes along the way (the biggest one being that I'm a running coach now - who would've ever thought??), I finally hit the goal I set on July 18, 2006. I knew I could do it, but it was tough to imagine back then.

Now I'm setting a new goal of 155, and I have all sorts of fitness goals in mind (running a 5k in less than 30 minutes is my top one right now).

Thank you lovely folks sooooo much for all the support you've given me along the way. There's no way at ALL I could've done this without the people at 3FC.

I'm so happy I don't know whether to laugh or cry! :)

Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!

Oh Lisa, I am SO very happy for you, I could cry. I am sitting here with just the biggest ear to ear grin on my face.

It's been so amazing and wonderful "watching" you as you reach your goals. I feel so fortunate to have been able to be a witness to it.

Enjoy today and enjoy that wonderful HEALTHY, FIT body of yours. And all the wonderful things that being that way brings about.

There's no way I could choose NOT to congratulate you here. Even though I've only been hanging out since May, it's been amazing to watch your struggles and your triumphs, your nervous hesitation about taking the next step and deciding to coach cross-country, your concern this summer about how if you concentrated on your race, you might not ever get back to the weight loss. And then to watch you systematically tackle all of your fears and come out victorious. It is also marvelous how you support and inspire all of us coming up behind you.

You are so amazing in so many ways. Can't wait to see the updated "after" picture!
