Mini-Goals - There goes 100lbs and I did it with beer!
Well, I made it to the 100 club without giving up a drop of my favorite beverages.
This is a very exciting milestone for me. Strangely, I have really enjoyed my weightloss journey so far. I love the new types of healthy foods I eat and I really enjoy exercise, especially running - something I thought I never would.
And I very much like new clothes! Perhaps too much.
Diet has been important but so has the support network I get here that not only holds me accountable but gives me great tips and ideas. So thanks to all and on to goal!

My man Ian, you made it look so easy and gave it 110% commitment. Massive change in you after 100 lbs, must be a great feeling.
Beer really is the new diet fuel. lol
08-03-2013, 03:52 PM
Very impressive! Why is this thread under "Mini Goals"?
08-03-2013, 04:56 PM
Wow Ian! I've been so impressed watching your progress. I agree that losing 100 pounds is no mini-goal. Cheers to you!
Thanks everyone. I am enjoying a beer right now. A Lagunitas Hopstoopid.
Onwards to goal!

Looking handsome, Ian!!

Awesome progress very inspiriational.
I will say though that for my body and my health the most profound thing I have done is go to lower carbs, especially refined carbs.
Am I doing Atkins? No. Probably not even close. But I was eating a lot of refined carbs even though at home we only had whole grain. But out and about just a ton of carbs.
So yeah a beer diet would not be for me. I had classic too much carbs syndroms, huge belly, high triglyc..., tired, feeling hungry after a carb meal.
Still very big but I feel a million times better. And my original end of year goal, under 250 I should meet in the next couple of months. Limiting carbs was THE most profound health step forward I have ever taken.

Wow, really well done on the weight loss, Ian! And I love your sense of style. You're looking great.
The only problem is your name triggers in me an instant craving for beer!
08-20-2013, 10:37 AM
You should be very proud of yourself, congrats!
08-21-2013, 12:39 PM
You're drinking all the beer I can't have -- the world is balancing itself out! ;)
Congratulations, you look fantastic! Enjoy your new wardrobe, you look wonderful!
08-28-2013, 04:30 AM
Wow! You are brilliant! I second the beer diet book!

Thanks everyone and especially firegirl. You go for it girl!

I missed this thread when you originally posted because I was on vacation on the back woods of Idaho without Internet for over a week.
I'm so proud of you! You're an inspiration to so many people here and one of the reasons I find the strength to keep going on my own journey. You will make goal soon, despite the slow down, you running beast!
