100 lb. Club - Congratulations LoriBell on making your goal

07-03-2009, 08:46 PM
I just noticed Lori's signature and tracker while reading another one of her "spot on", tell it like it is, informative posts that we have come to LOVE and I noticed a *little* something - she's hit her goal weight.

Lori, what is there to possibly say to express how happy I am for you? How can I possibly let you know how FABULOUS and STUPENDOUS a job I think you've done? Your hard work has paid off in a big marvelous way. You are the epitome, bar none, of a true lifestyle change. And boy oh boy am I pretty certain your life has changed. You bring new meaning to the word inspiration.

Congratulations Lori and I look forward to spending many, many years with you now that you will be transitioning from a loser to a maintainer.

Lori I do not have the words to tell you what a superstar, an inspiration, you are. You have totally redefined your life and in the process are serving as an inspiration to so many. Wonder how many people's lives you have changed, and saved, just through your own journey.

I could say "I'm proud of you" all day, and come nowhere close to it. You have done the impossible. Well done. Very well done.

Start Date: March 4th, 2008
Goal Met: July 3rd, 2009
16 Beautiful Months to Freedom. 333/158 175 lbs lost.

Pretty amazing! Just goes to show you with commitment & determination ANYthing is possible. :cloud9:

Thank you so much for taking the time be a member of this forum. (I know this can be hard to fit into one's day sometimes.) Keep posting your insights, as I can really relate to so many of your experiences & I feel better knowing you're out there validating what I deal with sometimes.

Such a big part of this whole journey for me is being able to envision doing it and getting to the end zone (which isn't always easy for me). It's just fantastic to see what you've done, I'm inspired by it. And I'm so, so happy for you. Wow!

Best wishes for your new, healthier lifestyle. I bet you feel finally at home with your body instead of carrying around all the painful uncomfortable extra weight. You'll always be a star to us!!!:hug:

I can't believe I missed this thread. Thankfully Robin private messaged me or I might not have seen it, I've been so busy with kids, garden and life that I haven't had as much time to spend at 3FC as I would like.

I read all your posts last night and I couldn't reply until this morning after I had regained composure. :) I can't tell you all how much your kind words meant to me. I came to 3FC after I had lost approx 60 pounds, I was feeling good, but it was becoming increasingly difficult to do this alone. The power of the Internet still amazes me! I know I would have NEVER made it without the help from my fellow chickies. Thank you all again for making me feel so special. What a great feeling.

Now on to maintenance, which sucks so far...LOL It's been a real challenge in just these last few days to decide how much to eat and how much to weigh (without losing control on either AND a holiday weekend to boot!). I've been doing a lot of praying!
