The big day finally arrived! I stepped on the scale this morning and saw this:
This means that I have lost 100.2 pounds since 6/15/2017 – that is less than 9 months! As most of you know, my goal was over 100 in under a year and I did it in far less time.
I didn’t really know how I would feel the day I hit my goal. I can tell you that my first feeling was utter surprise. I expected to have lost a bit since yesterday, but honestly thought I wouldn’t be past the 99 pound mark. So, it was a huge shock!
As you will know if you read my blog on Sunday, I was frustrated with slow progress over the past week. I was so close to hitting 100 pounds by St. Patty’s day but was thinking that I would need an extra week. Nope! My body decided to engage badass mode instead!
After seeing that I had passed the 100 pound mark, I thought about going and having an unhealthy breakfast (pancakes or something) to celebrate my accomplishment. But, I made a different decision. I went to the gym and did treadmill intervals at a new top speed and then did weight training with heavier weights than my previous max. So, I rewarded myself with a killer workout.
Now my mind has started turning to what’s next. That will be a topic of thought through the rest of this week and something I will talk about in this weekend’s blog post.
As a last thought, I want to take a minute to thank everybody who has been so supportive along the way. If it wasn’t for the positivity and support from Liz, my friends and many other people, I would very likely have given up and not seen this victory. I am so lucky to have such an amazing support system in my life!
