Soo.. this one is actually a scale victory. But I want to share it anyway!




My highest ever recorded weight was 282.4 lbs in 2010. I'm now 178.6 lbs as of this morning.. so I've officially lost 100 lbs. I can't believe I ever carried that much weight on this body. Now just 24.6 lbs to goal.


🥳🥳🥳CONGRATULATIONS!!🥳🥳🥳

I actually prefer to walk places these days, rather than driving. Pick up my dry cleaning ... walk, get my hair done .... walk. I haven't talked myself into walking to grocery shop yet. I'll need to buy one of those little old lady push carts! 🤣


Here is an example of why I’m grateful that walking is pleasurable now days vs something to dread!

Now I don’t have to give up my spot and be forced to enter into an epic battle of wills to claim a new one! 😂😂😂

I had surgery just over a year ago. This morning, I did this.

OMG! I would turn that into a mural and have it occupy a whole wall in my home! 😮😮

This is a very non-specific NSV - but I feel FANTASTIC!

All of a sudden, 13 months out, I feel absolutely amazing.

I don't want to scare any newbies, I had issues that you are very unlikely to experience. But, I have felt so-so or downright crappy for so long that I had accepted that as my new normal. But now, I have to set the record straight. Yippee!

Today I cut my toenails and did not have to hold my breath or physically grab my foot and place it over my knee with my hands.

And 3 of the shower curtain hooks had come off the pole, so I hopped up on the side of the bath and put them back on - without holding on to anything for support, and while keeping my balance on the 3 inch bath rim!

NSVs are amazing - my surgery was 5/31/18, I reached my surgeons goal on Sunday. Down 95lbs and ready to maintain. I bought all new pants In January and they are all too big now. I am now a size 8! Never in my life have I been an 8! I was an 18-20 when I had the surgery.

I can feel actual bones under my skin - that’s new.

my goal was to be the weight I was when I was married 15 years ago. I am 25lbs past that. I have never felt this good. The best decision I have ever made for myself

A few says ago, I rounded the corner to see my bus at the stop about 200 feet away. I ran! Actually ran, long strides, solid heel strikes, and caught it! I didn't even feel too winded afterwards. Only later, did I realize how amazing it was.

2 NSV's at my checkup today:

1) my body fat percentage is 31% which puts me in the "acceptable"/"average" range for women. yay!

2) i have a thigh gap (of sorts)! had to take off my clothes and stand with my feet 6-8" apart, and lo and behold light could be seen shining between my legs (ok, that sounded weird).

Had our monthly meeting today and I fit in the student desk with room to spare!! I hated those meetings because the only seats are student desks and I would have to squeeze myself into them and sit uncomfortably through the meeting!
