You look incredible! The difference is amazing--even down to the way you carry yourself. 100 lbs. makes a difference in a lot of ways.

You are truly amazing--you should be so proud of yourself and how far you have come. Congratulations!

I love your new avatar, by the way.

Thank you for the support! (HUGS!!!) Actually, I recently went to a store I used to work at a few years ago, started talking to the employees I used to work with, and they didn't recognize me until I told them who I was. Awkward --- because I look so different. It didn't occur to me that someone might not recognize me. It's like being in cognito or in a different body -- or invisible in the sense that people I know don't recognize me. It's really pretty weird, but I just say hi and explain who I am.

How will I celebrate? Well, I've already started - contacts, brows done, new outfits, pictures, a makeover really. I might even get my ears pierced when the rest of my life calms down a little bit. I like my new portrait (avatar) too. It looks really good big. It's cool to have a good looking picture.

I'm so glad to have pictures to show you guys. See what 100 pounds can do? I never thought I'd even lose 50, and now I'm over 100 by trying to lose one pound at a time.

04-14-2003, 01:30 PM
Well, of course we all want to know how you did it!!!?!?! Could you pretty please post a sample of your typical day's food & exercise? I really wanted you & Daners to post in my food thread so I could get some ideas. ;)

That is so wild that your old coworkers didn't know who you were. Bet it made you feel soooo gooooood!!! :D

Sample "Low Calorie" Day (note: I'm generally home mornings and out teaching afternoons and eves, so I have to take food that can travel with me)

Breakfast: 400 calories

1 cup raisin bran
3/4 cup 1% milk
1 cup orange juice (calcium enriched)
1 cup coffee with little bit 1% milk and 1 tsp. sugar

Lunch: 300 calories

1 scrambled egg
1 piece bacon
1 piece rye toast with tiny bit of butter
1 cup decaf cofee with little bit 1% milk and 1 tsp. sugar
1 treat (like a hershey caramel)

Dinner (Usually eaten in two segments 1/2 of the following around 5ish and half around 9ish when I finish teaching):

1 tuna sandwich on 2 slices whole wheat bread (400 calories)
1 banana (100 calories)
1 carrot cut into sticks (35-40 calories)

Total, about 1200 calories.


This is just a low cal day though. Some are higher -- like when we have family visiting or have pizza and stuff -- but this isn't bad. And I try not to go above 1600 in a day.

Exercise: I don't do much except my physical therapy things for abs, back, legs, and arms, and a little walking and swimming, but I don't do the cardio nearly every day. Maybe once or twice a week of some gentle walking or swimming. Physical therapy stuff I do every day -- about 30-45 minutes daily.

Jeanne, I am so happy for your success. As I've told you before, you've been one of my inspirations since I started on this thread and I'm delighted to see you've almost reached your goal. Glad you posted the pics.

What do you teach?

Oh, Jeanne, you really are an inspiration. May I ask how long it took? I also have at least 100lbs to lose and I am greatly inspired by your success.

It took a long time. I'm in my 3rd year. The first year (2001), I didn't change my eating. I just started exercising. I lost 17 pounds by climbing mountains. The second year (2002) I sprained my knee and had to face the eating part or gain back the seventeen I had worked so hard to lose. I lost 67 pounds by watching what I ate for a total of 84 pounds. This year (2003) I've lost 18.5 this year for a total of 102.5. Truthfully, I didn't start losing till half way through 2001, so I've done the actual losing in a year and a little over 9 months.
