100 lb. Club - Have to share - I am stunned...

View Full Version : Have to share - I am stunned...

I've been away from home 11 of the past 14 days. First I was out of town for my grandson's third birthday celebration. Then I went to Los Angeles to help my sister after her back surgery. My sister's friends brought over all lots of food, goodies, sweets, chinese food - so many temptations. There was also healthy stuff around, thankfully.

I weighed this morning (two weeks since my last weighin) and I have lost four pounds. I am jumping for joy. I am so, so grateful for the willingness to try to maintain some sanity with food while I was gone. I switched my plan to exchanges while I was gone along with allowing myself two - three hundred extra calories a day if I wanted to.

I had to share this very happy news and this accomplishment. :)

My weight ticker isn't working - but, my weight is now 220 - so, I am down fifty one pounds too. :carrot:

Oh Beverly that is WONDERFUL!!! So incredibly marvelous. Just look how well you did under those challenging circumstances! You did it. You did it. YOU DID IT!!!

Sounds like a true lifestyle change to me. Which will take you to your goals and keep you there. :cheer2::cheer3::cheer2:

congrats!!! And what great proof that you have internalized all of the positive things and can do the right things even when outside your normal environment.

Very, very cool. Sorry you couldn't update your ticker though, that's one of my favorite things!

03-03-2010, 09:05 AM
Whoa! You mean to tell me you had a four pound loss that put you OVER a major milestone of 50 pounds lost AND you were expecting a gain?! I don't know how you are containing yourself!


:dance: :carrot:

03-03-2010, 09:18 AM
Elaina - I wasn't expecting a gain or a loss, really. (hoping for a loss, of course!) I didn't know what it would be - having been out of town eleven days. Yes, I am jumping for joy!

Thanks everyone.

Great for you! You are an inspiration to me!! HOOT!

Congratulations! I'm thrilled for you.

(And looking at your signature line, maybe it should now read, "I can definitely lose 5 pounds 10 times.")

03-03-2010, 10:22 AM
Oh Beverly! That IS wonderful news!!! Good for you for staying on plan during a stressful time, and reaping the reward. Fifty-one pounds is a HUGE milestone.

03-03-2010, 10:27 AM
Wow! I am so happy for you! 50lbs is a VERY BIG deal! I agree with Robin, I think you've made a permanent lifestyle change. I can't wait to watch you lose the next 50. :congrat: :carrot:

Congrats Beverly! That is a huge accomplishment to make under less than ideal circumstances!

03-03-2010, 12:00 PM
Congrats! Hitting the 50 pound mark is a huge deal, and now you're almost in the 2-teens!
