Friday Weigh In - 7 month update and a HUGE milestone

Happy holiday Friday everyone! I knew that going out to a meeting at 11am on a holiday Friday was a bad idea! There was a car fire that shut down the interstate (of course) and it meant making it no where near my noon class with my trainer.  I was SO stressed out about it but once I decided not drive Dukes of Hazzard style to try to get there on time, I calmed down a little bit. Luckily I already planned on yoga this evening and that will be enough. Whew. What a day already!

Now for the good news. I have lost ONE HUNDRED POUNDS!!!!! I can hardly believe it happened so fast. I feel ridiculously awesome.

 Last time I lost 100 pounds, it stopped there. I just gained it all back starting the day of my 100 pound party. That's not going to happen this time. I know what I need to do and I'm just going to keep doing it. I'm lucky to have had my surgery as a tool - I still fill up on 3 ounces of food and I couldn't be happier about it!

People have started asking me how much more I want to lose. My goal on paper with the surgeons office is 125. My surgeon said not to be surprised if I get lower than that. My frame is so much smaller than any of us could have imagined so it will be interesting to see what my body decides to do!

I'm looking forward to running over the weekend - I have a long run planned for Saturday then Monday I have a 10k! I love races on holidays - you get it done early in the morning then you feel righteous all day and can enjoy a few treats. This is a qualifying race for the Peachtree next year so I'm hoping to get a great time to submit which equals an earlier start time for 4th of July. I'm even more excited to be so excited about my running plans!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  5. I've read several blogs now where the person lost 100 pounds or more but I can really identify with you because in another life (25 years ago) I used to LOVE to run... never more than about 6 miles but I LOVED it. It would be SOOOO wonderful to lose enough to be able to run again but that's probably 50 pounds from now... that would be half of the 100 I need to lose but I'm confident it would be enough to get me back on the pavement. Thanks for the inspiration!
