Thank you so much! I am so happy, and pretty proud of myself. Feels good.
I did calorie-counting in a Food Journal. Aimed for 20% fat, 30% protein and 50% carbs, although it's just a suggestion. I stayed pretty close. Averaged 1300 cals/day for each of the 100 days.
I worked out 70 of the 100 days. Started out very small, since I hadn't worked out in years. Finally worked my way up to running 2.5 miles straight, biking, weight training and taking 60 min. cardio classes.

Wow. That's simply an unbelievable rate at your weight. You lost, what, almost two and a half pounds a week! You must have been working out very hard. Congratulations!

Thanks! The weight did come off really fast, but I had absolutely no cheats, clean eating and 70% excercise days. It was HARD, and I had weeks where I lost nothing, but then big whooshes.

I actually just started trying to lose weight... I was going to try to lose 30 pounds in about 4 months, but that puts me right around the holidays which as everyone knows is torture when it comes to trying to lose weight. So I settled for 20 pounds by the holidays... If I can maintain that through the holidays I will be happy then the additional 10 by March 1. So far I am down 4 pounds...which is kind of shocking since I really only started trying Tuesday ish...
