I'm officially down 100 pounds.
I hit it at the noon team challenge weigh in.
I'm not sure why today my body decided to lose a whole pound between breakfast and lunch, but it did and I'm not questioning it.
Ok, I did question it a little bit ... but Glenda assured me that the scale in the Team Challenge room was 100% accurate so I'm taking my 100 pounds to the bank and considering it official.
I'm not really sure at this point how to even begin to wrap my brain around reaching this goal. It seems somewhat unreal even though I've been waiting for this to happen for like a month!
I do feel though that I've just been accepted into some kinda club called the "100 Pounders" or something. How many people can say that they've lost 100 pounds? I don't know, but how cool that I can officially say it.
It's truly amazing to look back at where I started and think that at one point I didn't think I'd make it to 30 pounds. Then I hit 40 and couldn't imagine hitting 50. At 50, 60 seemed unattainable. At 70 I thought I'd never get to 90. At 90, I struggled each day to hit 100.
But I did it.
I think I've mentioned this before but when I walked into The Healthy Weigh, I didn't know my weight so Letha suggested I just lose 100 pounds in a year. When she said that I wanted to crumple into a ball and die. No way would I ever (EVER) be able to hit 100 pounds, I thought. Since I didn't want to know my weight, she asked me to pick a size that I would be most comfortable being and I picked size 12. How ironic that both of those things ended up coming true within a short time from each other.
When I picked a size 12, I couldn't imagine being smaller than a size 12 because ... well ... being a size 12 was already 1/2 the size that I was at the time. Surely I'd never lose 100 pounds. Surely I'd never be in a size 12. And surely I would fail.
Yet, here I am.
Having reached this goal, anything I do from here on out is cake. Not fatty cake though ... fat-free, guilt-free, life changing cake ... with a bit of icing just 'cause!
I still have weight to lose. I still have toning to do and muscles to build. Truthfully though, I'm winning this battle. I really am. I'm fighting and investing all I have to conquer this thing and it's really paying off.
Now we all get to celebrate and a reward is in order!
Next on the agenda ... I'm movin' out of the 200's baby and it's time to firm up my final number. I see the end in sight because frankly, if I can make it to 100 pounds lost, I know I can complete this journey.
Bring. It. On.
