100 lb. Club - 2 years of weight loss

View Full Version : 2 years of weight loss

09-27-2010, 04:14 PM
Today is my two year anniversary of weight loss.

My scale is still not here but I'm somewhere around 210ish I would imagine. No cheats, treats of the sort and my size 14 pants are getting looser.

In TWO YEARS I have...

went from a size 32 or 5x to a 14 or XL (sometimes even large!)
regained my mobility. Now I was never unable to walk... but I can RUN and climb and jump and take a fitness class without dying!
taken YEARS off my life
learned habits that I will never be able to shake... GOOD habits

what I still have to work on:
celebrations are NOT an excuse to eat, overeat, eat "bad" things
there is always something coming up... a night out, a holiday dinner, a birthday party... STAY ON PLAN
failing to plan is planning to fail.

MY GOAL for the next year:
On September 27, 2011 weigh 150 pounds or less
keep going twice weekly to my groove class
purposeful exercise at least 4-5 times a week
COME HERE AND POST every day. I'm ALWAYS checking in but not taking time to write and respond!

I thank the Goddess every single day for my chickies :)

The best two year anniversay ever (except wedding, of course) I am so proud of you. Your perserverance is amazing and so commendable.

You said: there is always something coming up... a night out, a holiday dinner, a birthday party... STAY ON PLAN

This is so so true...one could constantly find a 'reason' in their mind to allow themself to overeat for a special occasion several times a week or more. It's a wonderful goal. You CAN do this.

Wow! That's a lot to accomplish! It must feel so good! I understand a lot of your things to work on...been struggling with that lately myself. Keep going! You are doing great! :D

I love this post. It always impresses me when people are up front about not only their success and goals but where they have room for improvement. And it reminds me to focus on my areas that need improvement too, so thanks for that :)

You have achieved so much, very inspiring!

Happy anniversary! Does this mean you get another puppy as self-reward? Sounds like a great reason... ;)

09-28-2010, 12:23 PM
What's most amazing is you accomplished this weight loss with a three-ring circus going on ... kids, dogs, family needs, dogs, kids, dogs ... It's probably been a lot like trying to live home life normally through an incredible multiyear house renovation.

I'm so proud of you. I hope you feel really good trotting next to your dogs in the show ring. You deserve to. You are doing something remarkable, that so many people talk about & then never manage to even start, let alone follow through.

Awesome! What a wonderful accomplishment! :carrot: Congrats on your 2 year anniversary! (and Joey is so terribly CUTE)

Happy Anniversary to you. I like your goals! I know you have been a member since 2006 but somehow I *think* I remember you starting to post very frequently this time of year just after I started on my own journey. Were you a frequent poster before your journey began?

09-29-2010, 11:03 AM
Wow Way To Go Sweetheart!!! You Have Done Fantastic!!!!

09-29-2010, 12:04 PM
I actually joined in 2006 because a friend of mine told me about it... i think I came ONCE and then NEVER came again till 2008. September 27th ;) And I am so glad that I DID come back!
