As of this morning, I’ve officially lost 100 pounds!
On October 21, 2012 I saw the highest weight I’ve ever seen recorded – 315 pounds. Now, 375 days later, I’ve shed 100 pounds. And really, most of the weight loss has been since my surgery date – May 20, 2013. Countless hours of workouts, so many meals weighed and measured, all those days that I logged every bite. All worth this feeling I’m experiencing right now. After eighteen years of struggle with obesity, and a lifetime of being overweight, this accomplishment literally brings tears of joy to my eyes.
I thought I’d have so much to say when I hit this tremendous goal, but words escape me. Losing weight eluded me for so long – my terrible metabolism after all those years of yo-yo dieting. All that mental struggle with emotional eating. Tremendous frustration and pain whenever I tried to exert myself physically. And finally, after VSG surgery and transforming my life, I’ve realized the success I knew I had in me all along. It’s fantastic!
So rather than babble on, I thought I’d show some photos that depict just how far I’ve come.
I’m proud of all that I’ve achieved and look forward to all the milestones yet to come. Next up, Onederland!!
