100 lb. Club - Big mini goal- very excited
04-10-2010, 01:59 PM
I almost didn't post this thread because I've been blathering about it all over the boards, but then I decided to do it anyway. I'm pretty happy.
Today I made a major mini-goal. I've lost 50 lbs, my 2nd 10%, and I'm halfway to my healthy weight goal (what I've called my intermediate goal) of 169. :cloud9: As an added bonus, I broke into the two-teens at the same time.
I already bought my self-reward (I posted about the pack and light jacket a week or so ago; bought them early b/c they were on sale).
I'm so happy, and proud of myself, and ready to keep going!

Calluna, We started the same size and are the same height, may I ask what size jeans are you wearing? I am pear shape and in 18Ws but can get into 16W. What size do you think 169 will be? I havn't been under 200 since FOREVER.
BTW the 50# mark is HUGE! Congrates

Oh wow!! That's fantastic!! 50 pounds to me is something pretty fantastic. How many people in the world can say they've lost 50 #'s. That's really a significant amount of weight and I'm jealous of your 50# chickie. ;)

Thank you, ladies!!! It really does feel good - the achievement, having people to tell, and the affirmation. :) What a positive place this is.
mmiller, I was a size 12 at 170 lbs about 7 years ago (sigh). Right now I'm in an 18 or 18W, and I can button/zip my 16W pants. I would NOT wear the 16s out in public, though.

Congrats!!! You lost a 1st grader, how does it feel to be free of a person?
04-11-2010, 12:38 PM
Ah, if that was all it took to get my children off on their own, I'd be REALLY motivated! ;) It will be interesting when I've lost the weight of my 3rd or 7th graders, though, won't it? Gah, what a thought.
04-11-2010, 12:55 PM
Thats fantastic! Congrats to you.
And putting it in perspective of loosing a first grader made me think, so far I've lost 2 of my little guy (he's 23 lbs right now) I couldnt imagine walking around with 2 of him strapped on to me all the time. What a difference it makes, wow.

Congratulations! That is fantastic!

50 lbs - WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can I ask when you started?
KEEP IT UP!!!!
04-12-2010, 10:56 PM
Summerblue, I started in January. The first week, as you might expect, I lost a bunch - 9 lbs. Since then I've averaged about 3 lbs/week, although that number varies quite a bit.
Thanks for the response! :D
