100 lb. Club - I Lost 100 Pounds!
12-06-2007, 11:30 AM
It's probably poor form to pat yourself this hard on the back, but... I hit the 100 pound lost mark this morning!
I will admit to actually being a little thrown by it. I stood on the scale watching the number flash until the poor scale actually turned itself off. I then walked aimlessly around the house for about 20 minutes with my three dogs trailing behind probably wondering what the **** the Lady was doing walking in circles.
It's a bunch of mixed emotions. Happy because I feel so much better and accomplished something, and kind of pissed off at myself for putting this effort off for so long. How much time did I throw away, how many social occasions did I miss, how many negative feelings about myself could I have avoided if I had only made this effort sooner. Life's a lot easier when you feel good about yourself, stresses are smaller and problems may not go away but they just seem easier to handle.
In the "old days" I'd have bought myself a bag of hershey's kisses to celebrate. Today it's going to be a bowl of twiggy cereal and off to the gym.
30 Pounds to go!

Robin, pat away!!!
You'd better believe when I hit that mark everyone will know about it!
You deserve to be proud, that is such an amazing accomplishment! No regrets now, you can't change the past, just focus on what a wonderful future you have given yourself.

Oh Robin I am SO happy for you!!!! And I could have written that same exact post when I hit the 100lb mark. In fact I think I just may have. The only difference is that it was my 3 daughters wondering what was up with Mom.
Congratulations on yet another huge milestone. What an incredible difference you have already made to your life. Keep it up. Just keep it up. Although I know you will.
Now I'm headed to add your name to the list of 100lb losers. Yay!!!!

Robin - When I hit 100, I pat myself on the back so hard I'm pretty sure I pulled my shoulder. It's sort of like onederland...you get on the scale and you just can't stop looking.
Stare at the avatar. Heck, shout it from the rooftops!
12-06-2007, 01:13 PM
You better pat yourself on the back!!! You've done great! Congratulations and Happy Holidays! What a great way to begin 2008!
12-06-2007, 01:40 PM
What a huge accomplishment...congratulations! And to only be 30 pounds from goal! You've transformed yourself from an obese person to someone who could stand to lose a few. Enjoy today, and all your success to come. :)
12-06-2007, 01:41 PM
A huge CONGRATS to you! Fantastic!
Robin, huge congratulations! :balloons: You have most definitely earned the right to brag with the countless hours in the gym and the countless times you've said no to food and yes to the healthy life that you so deserve.
A suggestion -- take pictures. Even if they're only for yourself, you'll want to look back and remember this special day. I guarantee that the last 30 pounds are going to make an amazing difference in how you look (that's when people stopped recognizing me), so this is your chance to preserve the moment. :)

Anybody who can lose 100lbs DESERVES to pat themselves on the back all they want in my opinion!

12-06-2007, 09:05 PM
I wouldn't care if you were yelling it jumping rooftop to rooftop!!! Considering the number of obese people there are in the US, How many of them actually complete a 100 lb weight loss? :D We are so, so VERY PROUD of you!!
I understand the regret on your past. Don't worry about it and create a better future. Best wishes on your continued success!:carrot:
12-06-2007, 09:07 PM
Please, may I pat your back too?! Girl, you can pat all you'd like....and, then pat some more! You definitely deserve a pat and much much more. Congratulations!
12-06-2007, 09:13 PM
Wow! Amazing accomplishment! Keep patting away (besides - it burns calories) ;)
Don't spend much time dwelling on the coulda, shouldas. You cant re-write the past, and you are who you are today because of the challenges and things you have faced. Celebrate who you are, what you have accomplished and I just know that you will be back here soon celebrating the attainment of your goal weight!
You are an inspiration!!!
12-06-2007, 10:08 PM
I AM SOOOO proud of you!

Your weight loss is inspirational! Congratulations and thanks for sharing... you can't do anything about the past, so don't waste anymore time worrying about "what might have been" -- you are this incredibly strong person who has beat the odds... much stronger than a lot of skinny-minnies out there :devil:
Yay for you!!:bravo:
12-07-2007, 07:52 AM
