100 lb. Club - I'm Back

View Full Version : I'm Back

Hi everyone!

I used to post here about a year ago and am now back. Its good to see many faces I remember from when I was here last. My life has changed quite a bit since then. I got divorced from my lying/stealing/pot smoking ex, met a wonderful man, and am now married and living across the country. Ive lost about another 40 lbs since then by eating only when hungry and have worked on not bingeing. I haven't been working that hard though on losing weight.

My husband has recently gotten on the weight loss/ exercise kick and his motivation has infected me. He bought a treadmill and some really cool dumbbells. DH ordered me a polar watch that tracks heart rate/distance etc and logs all of it. This way I can be sure to stay in my target heart zone. We are also probably getting an elliptical machine. I just started working out a couple days ago. I am watching what I eat again. I got the fit day software (much better than the site) and am tracking everything. I feel so much better already.

So I am 280 now and have a mini goal by the new year to lose 20 lbs. to make an even 100 lost.

These are the dumbbells

welcome back Victoria. 80 pounds is an awesome loss and kudos to you for losing 40 more, especially after getting married. (I know I packed on the pounds after that event.)
