100 lb. Club - Within 100 pounds!

View Full Version : Within 100 pounds!

My official weigh in this morning was 289.8. My eventual goal weight is 190 which is the top weight in the "normal" BMI range for my height. I'm now 99.8 pounds away from that :).

I've had a great week in terms of weight loss. I lost 5.6 pounds this week because of all of the walking. In just a few weeks I'll be doing a 60 mile walk over 3 days and I'm wicked excited about that! :dancer:

Thanks everyone!

I'm totally going to apologize for what I'm about to do, but I'd be remiss without plugging my Komen 3 day page. I'm walking with a group of guys and you can see my page here:


So, sorry for the charity spam...It won't happen again ;)

Congrats to you, Matt! Thanks to you, I just noticed I too have less than 100 lbs to go as of todays weigh-in. I told my husband and he said, "The last 100lbs are the easiest to lose."

May it be so, Matt, for both of us. May it be so!

That walk is quite the commitment. Good for you!

07-06-2009, 02:29 PM
You and me both bud! Less than 100 lbs to lose just seems like so much awesomeness! Great job! I know how hard it is and you are doing it :) I'm proud of you :)

Matt, you aren't wicked excited --- you are just WICKED! ;)

You have become a one-man death squad to those horrible gangs of fat and I suspect mama fat pounds use your name to terrorize their kiddie fat pounds into being good. Congratulations on reaching a truly wonderful milestone in this journey --- you are walking OUT of the dangerous country of obesity and finding so many great things about yourself as you stroll INTO good health and good habits.
