Big day- Minus 100lbs in 10 months

stormdancer4stormdancer4 Member Posts: 19 Member Member Posts: 19 Member
Today l celebrate the loss of 100lbs on the weight loss journey l began on June 1 last year. If you include the 12 pounds l put on during my Christmas holiday then it is minus 112 pounds ( 8 stone)
Its the first time in my life l have been able to lose weight.
Sugar was and remains my enemy but now l understand its power over me.
I eat a healthier diet than l ever have. I am still struggling with excercise but keep trying
l CAN &.I WILL.
I am so grateful for the knowledge and support that has helped me. Logging meals on here has been fundamental. I have learned that you must never give up and a slip is better than a surrender.
Hopeful that l will continue and meet my goals.
Good luck everyone and believe its possible and that it is worth the price

    Sugar was and is my enemy too, especially if I add flour to it! I am trying again, after a long slip, so thanks for the encouragement.

    Good luck and well done!!knowing is the first step- the most important one. In the past l would use a "slip" as an excuse to eat what l wanted!! I am trying to be more aware now.
    I love cake but it doesn't love me xx

    Brilliant @stormdancer4....Must feel epic! I particularly resonate with eating healthier than ever before and struggling with exercise. Only a bit in for me and have had “slip ups” already....posts like yours are spurring me on. Thanks & wishing you luck with your future goals 🤞

    You are my "hero of the day". I am 4 lbs. away from losing 100 lbs. since 7/16/20. I know how you feel, and KNOW you will reach your final goal. Your words of wisdom in your post have resonated with my soul, I feel as though we are kindred spirits. Continued success on your journey. You have a friend/comrade in the quest for a healthy life style. <3
