I Have Officially Lost 100 Pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay, made it. I wanted to badly so make it by today, and I did.

198.8

100.2 pounds off from highest weight I saw on my HOME scale: 299

Yesterday was a planned feast meal day (the Primal/Paleo people talk about mixing up IF with feasts, the way hunter-gatherers would have experienced). Since I've been doing some IF, I figured I might as well throw in a feast day.

I ate nearly 1800 calories yesterday. I normally eat in the range of 1200, but I decided to do the feast meal and ate a big dinner. I wondered if it would derail my progress. Instead, I lost.

That's 2.6 pounds off this week.  

If I told you what I had for dinner, you'd be amazed. It really was a feast. You would say, 'No way you could lose after eating that?" I did. I'm a bit amazed myself. Hint: We went to a barbecue place. There was more than one type of animal involved. There was scads of butter and animal fat. Some blue cheese. Some cheddar cheese.

Anyway, today, back to my 1200 calories. You can't follow a feast with a feast. That's not how it works. The feasts are rare, and the IF is part of it. I'm in IF mode right now, and ready to have my meal as soon as I blog this.

Milestones need to be marked, right?

So, today, May 15, 2011, I finally lost 100 pounds.

Fourteen (14, count em, 14) more pounds to no longer be obese at all.

I can do it.:)

Interestingly, was just chatting with hubby about the groceries for the week. We need to increase his food. He's lost about 5 lbs a week the last few weeks he's been eating no bread/no pasta/minimal sugar/minimal rice and tubers. He's dropping weight like mad. And he's at risk of becoming TOO SKINNY within one week. So, we're gonna up his protein and fat (I'm encouraging him to eat more nuts), and he needs to expand his veggie/fruit vocabulary. He plans to add more dairy, too. He's been having sugar-free ice cream for his treat at night. He's already eating 4 meals, so he may need to up the snacking. How nice to say, "Gee, I gotta eat way more or I'll look bony." hahahah

Anyway, I'm way happy to pass two milestones in the last couple days.

Next milestone: Get to 185 and NOT be obese.

Happy Sunday, folks!

YAY!!! Congratulations on reaching 100 pounds lost!! Wow, only 14 more pounds not to be considered obese. Isn't it sad, though, that you look great at 199lbs but are still considered 'obese'?

That is awesome, just plain AWESOME!!!! I am so proud of you Princess. That is wonderful. You are rocking. 14 lbs is nothing, you can do this. I haven't check lately on what part of the range I am in. I should though, hopefully just the fat part.
Take care and good luck this week. Have a blessed evening.

I just came across your blog today and while I read this post I smiled! Congratulations on reaching such a big milestone in your journey!!! I can also relate to calculating pounds lost to no longer be considered obese. This year I went from 184lbs to 161lbs moving me out of the obese category!!!! I'm still continuing my journey to a health bmi, and I look forward to watching your continued journey. Grace and peace.

What a HUGE accomplishment Princess. So happy to read this. It adds a spring to my step on this rainy Tuesday. I'm happy you enjoyed your feast meal also.

I need to get to 164 to get out of obeseland. We can do this together!
