I DID IT!!! I LOST 100 LBS!!!!!!!!!!!

I HAVE LOST
100 LBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I did it!!!

I lost 5.4 pounds this past week. I weighed in at exactly 165 pounds. So I've lost a total of 100.2 pounds.

I can't believe it!!!

I actually... finally... did it!!

Here's the start I got when I logged my weight in on WeightWatchers.com this morning:


Isn't it beautiful?!?!?!?!

This is what I got when I first logged my weigh in. I thought it was so cool that they made a big deal about the 100 pounds. Maybe that happens every week, I just never noticed it. You like the way it warns me about losing too much too fast? Pretty smart, actually.



Here's my milestones so far:




And here's my total weight loss chart. From the beginning:


When I stepped on the scale and I first heard her say I'd lost 100 pounds, I screamed and whooped so loud! There weren't very many people there yet, only a couple, but I let it lose. I jumped up and down screaming and hugged my husband. He was standing right next to me. He's quit Weight Watchers, but he's switched to counting calories and it's working beautifully for him. But he came because he knew I was going to do it. And I did!

It was so cool at weigh in. The two ladies that weigh people in (Barb and Kathy) both came out from around the counter and hugged me. And my leader said some really sweet things about me during my meeting. He got me choked up at what he said. It was so nice to hear how happy he was for me.

I got 3 paper clips, too!!!

Woot!

I got a 100lb magnet!

Woo hoo!

I got a 100lb keychain charm!

Yee haw!!

AND, I got a 5 pound star!!

Sweet!!!

I'm loaded right now!! These are my keychain charms. There's a 16-weeks, a 25 pound, 50 pound, and 100 pound.

These are my magnets:


I set my next goal for 10 more pounds. I originally wanted to lose 130 pounds altogether so I can say I'm "half assed" (that I've lost half my body weight), but it's taken me so long and it's been so hard to lose these 100 pounds, I don't want to try for another 30 pounds right now. That'll be my ultimate goal that I'll reach someday. But for now, I'm making 155 my goal weight.

Whew! I can't believe it did it!!

Lauri said...

Cara,
Just wanted to tell you again how very proud of you I am and what an inspiration you are to so many people! I was about to explode sitting here waiting for your post to come up after your weigh in. Then when you didn't answer your phone....aarghhh. I called mom to ask if you guys were with her....she said you were on your way over. I didn't want to ruin the news by telling her why I was looking for you...so David beeping in was perfect as it gave me the excuse to get off the phone with her before she could ask too many questions...lol. It's probably a good thing you didn't answer right away as I was still trying to stop crying so I could talk...lol. I am just in awe of you and your accomplishment!
Love you!

I hit the 50lb mark today at my meeting and got my 50lb charm for the key-chain. Fifty gone! A year ago I never thought I'd be able to get where I am at now. I have another 100ish to go. Was good to see your accomplishment because it helps me know that I can do it if I stick with it.
