100 lb. Club - Really?!?! I did it?!? Me??

View Full Version : Really?!?! I did it?!? Me??

09-06-2009, 01:45 AM
Woke up yesterday and saw I was a pound away from 50lbs lost... couldn't WAIT til next week when I'd hit that 50lb mini-goal..... then was shocked this morning when I woke up to ANOTHER lb gone (my metabolism cracks me up... can't lose a pound for a week then they like... fall off instantly, sometimes in clumps)......


:carrot: :cb: :dancer: :broc: :yay: :dance:

Seriously? I mean, really? Me???

It only took me from 2006 to 2008 to lose the first 10 to 15lbs.... and the past 4 1/2 months to lose the rest!! :lol:

The thing about it though?

I know I can do this for the rest of my life. It's like I've come out of the dark and realized which way I'm going. Because of this.... I feel like the world is my oyster. My weight was the one thing that always made me doubt myself... if I couldn't control that... who's to say what else I couldn't handle? But now that I know I can do it... and it's EASY (for the most part)...... watch OUT world! Here I come!! It's almost scary... I've always had a high level of self esteem... even being the "fat girl".... I might just be an unstoppable force healthy! :D


PS - Just want to say thank you to 3FC, I don't know if I could have gotten on my feet without you guys! I've learned so much here!

PPS - Sorry the new photos are kinda blurry, took them on my webcam because I still feel randomly weird asking people to take pictures of me for this reason.... the ones from August were taken at my friend homecoming party.... so that's why I included them, though I've lost 6lbs since then.... I could NOT let this milestone go undocumented though! :carrot:

This is the same thing that tends to happen to me... plateau for a while and then the pounds drop like flies... wierd, eh? But cool, nonetheless. Anyway, I'm proud of you, congratulations!:bravo:

Thanks guys.... :) Coming from all of you, especially, it means even more to me! You all work so hard and have achieved so much!

And yes.... what a difference 50lbs makes!!! :eek: Now that I can see it with my own eyes, I'm shocked at the way I looked 50lbs heavier!

Tara - Awww... thank you! I've always been kinda fashion challenged I thought, but hey... :) I mainly shop at Walmart, Kohls, Fashion Bug and Torrid (though I'm at the smallest end of their clothes spectrum now). The rest of my closet is basically all colors of tank tops and concert T's.... :lol:

better health3

Congrats to my favorite biotch!!!! (we've been best friends since 14 ppl, don't get offended by my statement lol) You really make me look like a big sissy..losing all that weight and I'm driving myself nuts just trying to lose 10! You're inspiration to me that's for sure chica!!! Love ya :-)


09-08-2009, 11:47 PM
Thanks love... :hug: :) You've definitely seen me at all weights! :lol:

EDITED TO ADD: And no I don't think you're a sissy. I might have given you crap in the past (you scrawny wench) but now that I'm on my own weight loss journey.... well, I realize just how frustrating it can be, whether its 5lbs or 100!!! We're all fighting our own battles... :)

09-09-2009, 12:16 AM
WoW! Congratulations!

09-09-2009, 12:33 AM
Congratulations on this accomplishment! You look great and must feel that way, too.

Shine on!


09-09-2009, 04:47 AM
Well done :) 50lb loss is such a good milestone :) It was after 50lb loss I knew I could do it and more people started to notice I'd lost weight too.

09-09-2009, 01:19 PM
Same here Rainbow! All of a sudden it's like I've got a grandstand of people with penants rooting me on..... which would be kind of unnerving if I didn't honestly feel that I OWN THIS. hehe Truly, I'd probably be kinda embarrassed if I wasn't so secure in my grasp on this (my weight, my life, etc)... and afraid I'd gain it back and be a failure in peoples eyes. However, I'm darned confident, feel great, and am actually having an easy time of it.... sooo...... yeah. Don't think that weight'll be goin up any time soon! :)
