100lbs Down!..newest member of the Century Club..

"You must do the thing you think you cannot do"~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today is the day I reached 100lbs down, a goal I never thought possible. At 243lbs reading that number on the scale in the DR office, I so well remember that moment. It wasn't a good one. 

My first goal was 155, the weight at which I met my husband, the weight I had met doing weight watchers 2x before.  (the goal I knew achievable)

Then with the help of my band I actually thought about 140's a weight I never ever remember weighing(except maybe in JR High)

My Surgery was August 24 2009.  My goal of 155 was reached September 3, 2010 read my goal post here.

My aspirational goal of 145 was reached X-Mas Week..my own X-Mas miracle. I could never get a 145 on the dot closest I saw was a 145.1 and then I was 144.

But today I saw it, I saw something I only dreamed about. CENTURY CLUB

And BOY did that moment feel so good.

This moment would not be possible without my band and my support from Blog Land..

Spin, Double Date and Meatballs!

I think I have mentioned before how much I love spin. I really really  <3 it!
I feel like it really challenges me and I can really see a difference in my legs.. they are getting toned!   Try it, it's hard but it's so worth it and just a little insentive...

I am so fortunate to live within 45 min of one of my favorite bloggers Kristen. We really have developed and amazing friendship and not a day or two goes by where we aren't emailing or BBMing and supporting eachother.. We had a double date on Thursday..
<3 my Pretty!

We had some delecious Cabernet! And we have been to XO before we love their Tapa's menu they have Cognac Meatballs that are to die for...

WOW 2010..you were amazing! A friend being banded

I am sad to see such an AMAZING year go. It was truly one of the best years I have had in such a long time. (click on photo to make bigger)

I posted this as a note on Facebook..some of you have may already seen it..
Top 10 things I have learned in 2010 1.When a tragedy happens in your life, you find out who your real friends and family are, the ones that are their every day even two years later. 2. Carbs are overrated. 3. When a group of people go through the same experience, they create a bond that no one can understand. 4. Lock your rims 5. Starbuck's Skinny Vanilla Latte..was created just for me. 6. Working for a Non-Profit is TRULY rewarding 7. A well made cosmo can put a HUGE smile on my face. 8.Holding a baby the day they were born is truly special 9. You can eat Tuna every day for lunch 10.I am an inspiration. Thank You to all who were involved in making my 2010 so great, I <3 you all! Bring on 2011!

I can say # 10 for the first time in my life. My friend Angie from High School is being banded on Tuesday, because of me. A while back she sent me a private message on Facebook, asking how I was losing weight. And I told her all about the band.  Below is a note she sent me last week.
Remember I am finally doing this because of you...you are my inspiration!! THANK YOU!!!

Please send Angie a message, as she starts on her amazing journey!

Cheers to 2011!!
