100 lb. Club - 100 pounds gone!
02-04-2011, 08:47 AM
101lbs to be exact! I can't believe it - I've lost 101lbs in less than 9 months. It's like I gave birth to a small teenage girl. :dizzy:
I feel like I wasted so much time sitting around thinking about how insurmountable this weight loss felt, how lofty the goal seemed. I felt like I could lose weight forever and never be close to my goal. But then I just stopped sitting around thinking about how hard it would be and DID it - and you know what? It wasn't that hard. All I've done is eat better and eat less, drink more water, and move my body. I don't diet to the extreme - I still eat pizza, chips, cookies - I just eat less of them and eat them in moderation. I don't exercise excessively - I workout 45-120 min daily, but not because I think it is necessary, but because I actually like it now. :carrot:
Full disclosure? I was 5'5" and 302lbs - which is a hard pill to swallow, but it is what it is. That means after losing 101lbs, I still have another 26lbs to lose before I'm even considered not obese anymore. Man, that sucks, right? But I don't care! I know I'll do it eventually - eventually I'll just be overweight. And I can't wait to be overweight!
Seriously - if you think you can't, you are wrong. Wrong! I know its hard when you're starting out at a higher weight, and think there is no way that you can do it, that it seems like too tall a mountain to climb - its NOT. Just start walking - you'll get there eventually. Just DO something - ANYTHING! And see where it takes you.
I love this place - thank you for being on this journey with me. :hug:

Congratulations! I am so happy for you and doing the happy dance.
I understand what you are talking about when you say you have 26lbs to lose before you are even considered not obese anymore. I have even more because I am shorter than you. But don't look at that today. Look at what you have accomplished! Even if you don't lose another pound, you are so much better off.

WOW! Just Wow. You have just lost 100 pounds of burden. No words can express how happy I am for you! Super cool. AND, you are so right. Just put one foot in front of the other and before you know it you are off and running!

you are such an incredible inspiration to the rest of us. Especially to those of us who are just starting out on our journey. I, too, can't wait for the day that I'll be "overweight". It's because of people like you, who show how dedicated, hard working people are capable of doing anything, that I continue to gather the strength to keep going every day.
I am so excited and proud that you've reached such an amazing milestone and have accomplished so much! Keep up the great work and you'll be at your goal before you know it. And we'll be right there cheering you on the whole way.
Congratulations, sweetie! You. Are. Phenomenal. Don't ever forget that.

Reading your post is like music to my ears. Have you been keeping a diet blog for the rest of us to read?
I am 5'6" and last summer I weighed my heaviest ever at 301.8 lb. I am now aroun 274 lb but I have a long way to go. This is very encouraging to hear that you lost so much in 9 months. That averages out to 2.80 lbs per week.
Keep it up girl, you are definitely a winner at weight lose!
