Talking I've lost a 4 year old!!!

I Just wanted to share- even though I still have 9 pounds until I'm halfway to my goal of 100 lbs. lost- it just hit me today- my daughter (who will be 4 in September) weighed 41 pounds last time I weighed her (about a month ago)- and as of today, I am down 41 pounds!!!! I can't imagine carrying my daughter around all day long, but WOW- I've been doing it for so long! When I get home today I am going to carry her around the house for a while (I'm sure she will think its hilarious!) just for visual reinforcement that I AM getting somewhere. 100 lbs. may be a big goal (and its not even my final goal! 150 is my final goal!) but every pound counts and adds up. I've effectively shed the equivalent of a 4 year old from my body. WOW. Thanks for reading!

Starting Weight 6/02/14 313lbs.-
Current goal- 198 (120 lbs.) by next summer's Disney vacation- so I can possibly ride things with my kiddos!

Mini Goal #1- (10 lbs.) REACHED 6/28/14
Mini Goal #2- (20 lbs.) REACHED 7/18/14
Mini Goal #3- (40 lbs.)

That's fantastic! I have just gone into the cupboard where my partner keeps some weights he never uses, and tried to pick up the 12lb I've lost. Admittedly I'm a weakling, but I still couldn't hold them for very long. So I am sharing your amazement at the idea that we were carrying all that around - and you've lost three and a half times what I have!

Great job, lili!

You just made me realize that I've lost more than a Corgi - my little girl weighs 27 pounds, and my big boy weighs 37. I can't imagine carrying one of the pooches around all day!!

Lost the first 100 with Medifast, now working on the last 25

Wow, that's an awesome way to look at it!

DS will be 5 in Sept and is about 42 lbs! I am gonna keep track of his weight to see when I lose that amount...hopefully by the time he turns 5 I will have lost him!!

Good job and thanks for the inspiration!

I guess I'm lucky my kid is so skinny - I only need to lose another 25 lbs (plus the 20 already) and I'll have lost my 45 lb 7 year old! lol!

Congrats on your accomplishment!!!
Restart 1/6/13 - GOAL (for now) back to prior low
