Default 100 pounds gone!

101lbs to be exact! I can't believe it - I've lost 101lbs in less than 9 months. It's like I gave birth to a small teenage girl.

I feel like I wasted so much time sitting around thinking about how insurmountable this weight loss felt, how lofty the goal seemed. I felt like I could lose weight forever and never be close to my goal. But then I just stopped sitting around thinking about how hard it would be and DID it - and you know what? It wasn't that hard. All I've done is eat better and eat less, drink more water, and move my body. I don't diet to the extreme - I still eat pizza, chips, cookies - I just eat less of them and eat them in moderation. I don't exercise excessively - I workout 45-120 min daily, but not because I think it is necessary, but because I actually like it now.

Full disclosure? I was 5'5" and 302lbs - which is a hard pill to swallow, but it is what it is. That means after losing 101lbs, I still have another 26lbs to lose before I'm even considered not obese anymore. Man, that sucks, right? But I don't care! I know I'll do it eventually - eventually I'll just be overweight. And I can't wait to be overweight!

Seriously - if you think you can't, you are wrong. Wrong! I know its hard when you're starting out at a higher weight, and think there is no way that you can do it, that it seems like too tall a mountain to climb - its NOT. Just start walking - you'll get there eventually. Just DO something - ANYTHING! And see where it takes you.

I love this place - thank you for being on this journey with me.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you and doing the happy dance.



I understand what you are talking about when you say you have 26lbs to lose before you are even considered not obese anymore. I have even more because I am shorter than you. But don't look at that today. Look at what you have accomplished! Even if you don't lose another pound, you are so much better off.

Congrats again!
