Hello ladies!

I just posted my goal story in the goal section (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/goal/236273-1-year-100-pounds.html) but I wanted to post here as well....I know I haven't been a daily poster or anything, but I visit this board pretty much daily and want to say thank you for all the inspirational posts and the struggling posts, too. It's such a long journey and having wonderful people to share it with, makes all the difference.

I started June 22, 2010 - and as of today, I am 100 pounds lighter. You can read the goal post if you want (it's a bit long - just a warning! :)) but I'm just so happy and I've actually stopped to thank myself a few times, for doing this. It just feels like a big gift to myself....being at a normal healthy weight is a reality I have never experienced as an adult and I can't imagine ever going back. I actually feel reluctance to type that because I know people regain...and I plan on being vigilant and I will be on 3FC for a long time to come!

Anyways thanks again!! :)

Congratulations!!!!! Your progress is a huge inspiration.

Can you give some ideas on how you made it? Also did you stay completely OP?

You are an inspiration. I have a 2 year old daughter, and a big reason I changed my lifestyle is that I wanted to be that positive role model, and for her not to struggle or witness me struggle and lose that battle of the bulge.

Congratulations! Very well done!

Thank you ladies!!

onmywaydown - I did mostly stay OP. There were a handful of days when I went over my calorie count, maybe 4-500 calories over. But definitely for 95%+ of the time, I ate my calorie level and no more. I won't pretend every day was healthy....there were days I ate very lightly to "afford" 3-4 slices of pizza, for example. My plan is simple, it is 1500 calories, and I try to make them mostly healthy choices - and that's it! :)

fattymcfatty - That's exactly it for me too - I don't want her to see the struggle, I just want her to see me making mostly good choices and being at a healthy weight. My son too - he is so active and it was hard to keep up with him. He's 3.5 now and I run all over the playground equipment with him, and it is so awesome! :)

I have added you to the list of the 100 lbs losers!!!
