100 lb. Club - Seeing Lyn's thread reminded me - I've also lost 100 lbs!

I posted it to the daily weigh in thread, but I forgot to make my 100 lb party thread (no cake at this party, please :lol:)

I weighed 286 when I started in September of 2009 - today i weigh 184.8. I was spilling out of size 22s and 24s and today I'm wearing size 14 pants! :carrot: I'm finally looking like the self I remember! I can play with my kids :carrot:. My sex life is better:o :lol:. While I still have weight to lose (35 lbs to my initial goal weight, but I suspect I'll revise that down at some point), if I never drop another pound, I'll be satisfied here. I feel like I have my life back. I feel like a normal woman who just hates her stomach or her butt rather than someone who, well, hates herself :(. I don't feel like everyone is staring at me when I walk into a room. In the spirit of the current campaign aimed at gay youth to keep them from killing themselves - ladies who are just starting, or aren't sure if you want to start, or don't think you can do it so you're wondering why you should even bother trying - IT GETS BETTER. It really does. But not if you don't take action.

I don't have current pictures - I hope to have some within the next couple of weeks to show the current version of my transformation.

Congrats!! Great job!

Although I've not gotten to 100# yet . . . I hear you. I'm down to 180something from 250something and I love walking into a room and not feeling like everyone is staring at the fat woman.

Congratulations! I'm so glad you shared this! And yes, isn't it amazing how much better it gets, even before goal? I understand exactly what you mean by feeling like you again. That's me exactly.

Congratulations. I agree with the attitude of reaching the 100 lbs. lost milestone. I'm still working toward a final goal, but if I don't lose another lb. and just maintain below 165 I am in such a better place.
