    Default One more hits the century mark

    Reposted from the Men's forum:

    I weighed in today down 1. For those of you scoring at home, that makes an even 100 pounds lost. I think I need to invent the 100-pound dance.

    I never dreamed I'd make it this far when I started. I feel good. I've been at it for almost 18 months, and frankly it's hard to remember what being that heavy felt like. I remember being tired a lot. I remember that going to the store once in a day would pretty much wipe me out. I remember being out of breath after getting dressed. Now I can walk all day without getting tired.

    I started out with 40 points per day, and a 50-inch waist. Now I get 30 per day and my 38-inch waist jeans are pretty darned loose. I do have a bit of loose skin but not a whole lot. Because I lost it so slowly the skin has kept up pretty well. I still have some significant jiggle in the torso area when I jump up & down.

    I didn't do hardly any exercise for the first 70 pounds or so. All that came from just limiting food intake. After that, exercise got easier, so I exercised. Now I'm in the weight room 3 days a week, and running 3 days a week. I'm entered for my first 5K race next month. I'm not going to win, but I'll feel good having finished and earned my $27 t-shirt. The best part is knowing that I'm in better shape at age 40 than I was at 20.

    I disagree Blackbeard, you will certainly win just being in that race and it doesn't even depend on what place you finish in. I admire you and I also respect you for all the words of wisdom I see from you here on the boards. Congratulations on your victory!!
