View Full Version : I Lost 100 Pounds!

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!

Yeah, it is the BEST!

Thanks, you guys. I want to shout it from the rooftops. I feel like dancing and announcing it in public or something! I am such a private person that I can only announce it here :-) In my 'real' life, my husband and mother are the only people I've confided in.

YYYYeeeaaaahhhhhh, that is so awsome! and so inspiring! I think a reward of a full body message and a gym membership (if you really are motivated to go out and work out. Otherwise, maybe something to wear...A pair of shorts or nice fitting jeans. Or a weekend trip somewhere near but different. hugs for your soul.....You go girl!
