Weigh-In For Week 27

I HAVE LOST 100 POUNDS!!!!!

I can’t believe it! I woke up this morning and weighed myself and for the first time the scale read under 166 – 165.4 to be precise. This means that I am down 2.4 from last week, I have had a loss of over 89 pounds since beginning this blog six months ago on August 12th of last year, and I have dropped over 100 pounds from my highest weight of 266 from exactly ten months ago in April of 2009!

100 POUNDS!!! Do you know what that works out to!?! I have lost the equivalent of one of the following:

  • about four hundred and fifty chocolate bars
  • eighty basketballs
  • over thirty college textbooks
  • more than eleven jugs of milk
  • eight bread machines
  • five big pumpkins
  • three bicycles
  • approximately one large bale of hay
  • an average hellfire missile
  • a female Newfoundland dog

WOW!!!!! I just have to say it one more time… I lost 100 pounds!!! Woo hoo!

I am so excited to have reached this milestone and even more geared up than ever to keep on travelling down the scale and making my way to a healthier me! This is for life in so many different ways!!!

The funny thing is that the best part about this morning was not actually seeing the number on the scale. The memory that I will always hold in my heart was when I told my husband and he picked me up in his arms and held me there, hugging me tightly. When I realized that he wasn’t going to throw his back out or otherwise hurt himself by holding my weight off the ground – that I was finally light enough for him to lift me up without hesitation – I let the tears flow freely. I am so proud and happy!

  11. That is truly kickbutt, congratulations! The milk jugs analogy was my favorite, realy makes one wonder they ever could have let all those milk jugs pile on to begin with. When I reach a major milestone, I will be sure to report it in milk jug equivalents!

  18. Congratulations on reaching such a great milestone! I loved your analogies too, my personal favourite was the female Newfoundland dog ;-) And I freely admit that reading about your husband picking you up brought tears to my eyes as well - I know my husband could, but I'm still too paranoid to let him :-(.
    Have a great day!
