100 POUNDS!!!!

I finally made it to 100lbs lost!  Actually, when I stepped on the scale this morning, it was 101lbs!  Even better! :) These last 4 lbs have come off so slow.  I'd been hovering around 97-99lbs lost for about 2 1/2 weeks and then BAM I'm at 101.  Thank goodness!! Finally across that 100lbs mark!

I made two before & after pictures for this big milestone.  The first with the "before" pic I've used for all the others and then another pic I found from the summer of 2008.

I was looking in the mirror tonight and my husband comes in.  I was standing up straight and noticing how flat my tummy was getting and how much thinner my midsection is.  He said, "GOD DAMN!" in that loud, surprised, I wanna do my wife right now kinda voice!! hehe It was the best compliment ever!

Still figuring out how to get in enough calories, enough protein and keep the sugar and fat intake to a minimum. It's SO HARD to do!  But, I'm only 4 1/2 months out and I'm still learning how to do this!

Another 25 lbs and I'll be under 200lbs!  I can't wait for that milestone!  It's my next goal!  And then.... after that, who knows!! I'll cross that bridge when I get to it!

Oh ps... I can't wait until I get to a weight where I can have plastic surgery to get rid of all the extra skin.  I have this massive spare tire around my middle that's comprised of extra skin!  ACK!  I need to get rid of it ASAP!  I hate it!!

Went shopping this week too.  Into a size 16/18 jean.  Seriously.  I haven't been that size since 10th grade.  I went to Target and could actually shop in the normal size section!  AWESOME feeling!!! I love shopping!!

Yay for Weight Loss Surgery!!!

That's awesome!

I have a hard time finding stuff at Target. I can buy shirts and jackets and (if they won't fit me like a long shirt) dresses, but the jeans aren't long enough (I'm 5'11") so I usually find them elsewhere.

Keep in mind now maybe the the time to look at changing the ways you are doing it. What may have worked at 300 lbs may not be the same tactics you need to use at 200. Your body is changing and so does your habits(again).

The saying goes "different strokes for different folks," well you are almost a different person now.

Keep up the good work
