S/C/G: 286/142.6/150/new goal 140

Height: 5-4

Default Seeing Lyn's thread reminded me - I've also lost 100 lbs!

I posted it to the daily weigh in thread, but I forgot to make my 100 lb party thread (no cake at this party, please )

I weighed 286 when I started in September of 2009 - today i weigh 184.8. I was spilling out of size 22s and 24s and today I'm wearing size 14 pants! I'm finally looking like the self I remember! I can play with my kids . My sex life is better . While I still have weight to lose (35 lbs to my initial goal weight, but I suspect I'll revise that down at some point), if I never drop another pound, I'll be satisfied here. I feel like I have my life back. I feel like a normal woman who just hates her stomach or her butt rather than someone who, well, hates herself . I don't feel like everyone is staring at me when I walk into a room. In the spirit of the current campaign aimed at gay youth to keep them from killing themselves - ladies who are just starting, or aren't sure if you want to start, or don't think you can do it so you're wondering why you should even bother trying - IT GETS BETTER. It really does. But not if you don't take action.

I don't have current pictures - I hope to have some within the next couple of weeks to show the current version of my transformation.

Congrats!! Great job!

Although I've not gotten to 100# yet . . . I hear you. I'm down to 180something from 250something and I love walking into a room and not feeling like everyone is staring at the fat woman.

Congratulations! It is wonderful to not feel like all eyes are on you when you walk into a room, isn't it? You've done an amazing job.

Congratulations! I'm so glad you shared this! And yes, isn't it amazing how much better it gets, even before goal? I understand exactly what you mean by feeling like you again. That's me exactly.
