100 lb. Club - My scale cheered for me this morning :)

10-20-2009, 11:17 AM
I am officially 140 pounds down!!! I thought I was going to take my scale in my arms and dance with it lol instead I settled for dancing with my 3 year old daughter (she dances better than the scale) :lol:

I know I've been really quiet lately but it's been really busy here between my business, being elected PTA treasurer, and the den leader for my 8 year old's cub scout group....on top of him playing football, etc :) My most note worthy thing is that I'm going to Amsterdam and Germany on November 2nd! My husband's job is taking us and I'm super excited!! In Germany I get to meet up with my brother who is stationed over there with the Air Force and I think surprising him with the "new" me is going to be the highlight of my trip *g*

I've been trying to catch up on posts but gosh y'all talk too darn much lol I might have to just start over again and not worry about catching up! ttyl :)

Congratulations! You are proof that a busy person can still lose weight. Enjoy your trip. I am sure that it will be much more fun than it would have been 140 pounds ago. Just think of the difference in the airplane seat!

10-20-2009, 11:40 AM
That is truly great! You are such an inspiration to this site! Woo Hoo!

So, does your brother know you have been losing weight?


10-20-2009, 11:47 AM
So good to hear from you! ESPECIALLY with such good news!!!! What a MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR accomplishment. Congratulations!!

And yes, just pop right in. I miss your posts :(.

Enjoy that trip of yours in that new body of yours. Better bring some smelling salts along. Your brother just may need them.

10-20-2009, 12:00 PM
Congratulations!!! I'm so very excited for you. Enjoy your trip. :)

Great job, 140 is a beautiful number I am eager to see one of these days, as well!

10-20-2009, 12:24 PM
Yippeee!! Sounds like a great trip as well!

10-20-2009, 01:04 PM
Wooo Hooo!!! You are soooo close to goal!!! How awesome!!!

10-20-2009, 01:15 PM
Thank you everyone! :) I've missed being active here!

My brother knows I've been losing weight but doesn't know exactly how much...he's only 20 and while I love him he's a typical guy that doesn't pay attention lol

10-20-2009, 01:37 PM
That is amazing, Tanee, Congratulations! Any new pictures? I'm jealous of your trip. I've been wanting to go somewhere since I've lost the weight. Traveling would be so much easier at a normal weight. Maybe you'll bring back lot's of pictures to share with us so we can live vicariously ;)

10-20-2009, 02:09 PM
Hooray, Tanee!!! That's fantastic! :cheer:

10-20-2009, 02:13 PM
:bravo: That is so amazing and inspirational!

10-20-2009, 02:24 PM
woooohoooooooooooooooooooooo great job!!

10-20-2009, 02:45 PM
Are you going to Ramstein area? My son works there and I was there over the winter in Landstuhl. Don't forget to go to Baden Baden, the famous spa town. They have two spas: one is no clothes allowed!!!! Now you can do that no problem. ha. The plane seat thing is about third on mylist of things that severely limit my life. I am so happy for you that you can just get on the plane, put down the tray, not have to ask for a seat belt extender. It's things like that, as inconsequential as they seem compared to life's bigger issues, that make life so much better. It's kind of like being reincarnated as another person.

I'll cheer for you too!! :cheer2: :cheer3:

Way to go! That is so awesome!

10-20-2009, 03:44 PM
That's great! Cool to 'see' you again and with a victory, too --even sweeter.

Maybe it's just me not spotting everybody (I have been on a little less lately, too) but is Devsmamma still around? I think that was her screen name. I remember taking note of her and her enthusiasm, losses.

10-20-2009, 04:02 PM
Yay! My scale cheered for me, too. Though not nearly as much as yours did. Except now it and the weights are conspiring together. They keep whispering that I can do it, too. :lol:

And I agree, do you have pictures? I love pictures. ^^

10-20-2009, 05:28 PM
Fricken amazing my friend! Good for you!

10-20-2009, 05:53 PM
Thanks chickies :)

No updated pictures yet...my husband has been working really late & he's my picture taker. When I get him cornered I will post them on here! My 8 year old has tried taking cracks at it but he needs more practice :lol:

Awww Lookingformeagain...your reply totally made my day!

Suezeeque - my brother is stationed out of Ramstein too :) He is meeting us at some halfway point between Amsterdam and there though. I'll have to ask him where lol All I told him is that I want to see real castles!

better health3

That is wonderful news! I am very happy for you. When you have a free moment, would you recap your exercise plan? I recall you were on WW and then calorie counted. Can you believe you have lost another person off of your body? Congrats.:carrot::hug:

10-20-2009, 11:25 PM
Congrats! That's an amazing accomplishment!

10-21-2009, 09:27 AM
Congratulations on such a super loss! You know that saying, "I worked my butt off?" You actually literally did it! I hope you have a fabulous trip and that your brother's jaw has to be lifted off the floor for him.


10-21-2009, 10:17 AM
Wowowowoww! That is truly inspiring! Your brother will be so proud!

10-21-2009, 10:43 AM
Wonderful girl!!! Just wonderful!

No I can't believe it! In another 3 pounds I'll have lost half of myself :)

My exercise plan is now running between 5-6 miles for 5 days a week and I just started the New Rules of Lifting for Women workouts from the book.
