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..

And REMEMBER if you can DREAM IT..you CAN ACHIEVE IT.
