100 lb. Club - I Lost 100 Pounds!
08-24-2009, 09:22 AM
I don't know if I have ever started a thread, weird. But I am just so thrilled! Last August 25th I weighed 253. I made my Monday weigh-in today with what I wanted, 153!
It was a close call -- between 153 & 154 -- but I saw 153 all weekend in anticipation, and actually yesterday I was clearly 152. So I know it's real.
I tried not to get too hung up on the thrill of making '100 lbs in 1 year,' because in the spring it didn't look like it was going to happen by my calculations, but my rate of loss went back up for a few months (a little slower again right now, I think). But anyway! I am writing a lot. I am just excited.
I meant to come up with a reward, or something, but hadn't yet. My husband kept asking me what I wanted to have/do to celebrate, but I don't know. I want a new bathing suit and a beach-y weekend, but I haven't wanted to spend all that money on a suit before being all the way down (I want to be 140 -- or 135). I got my exercise bike at 50 lbs down, which is also when I joined 3fc in March as part of my reinvigorating. I have my eye on a gym membership, as we get a good deal on my using the University gym (husband is a grad student). I mostly like to work out at home re: the machine, but I am interested in some of the classes, especially a boot camp one. So might end up doing that this fall, when I have the money.
100 lbs! It's like I knew I would make it, but I didn't think I would. If that makes sense. I just freaking did it, and will still just freaking do it, like a worker bee, but it wasn't until relatively recently that I let myself see it and relish it. Things have changed so much.

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing. I think that along with the gym membership, you should treat yourself to a massage--soooo relaxing! You deserve it!
