The scales says I'm down a full 100lbs today

I feel less celebratory than I thought I would, but I keep catching covid and colds, so I'm feeling a bit worn out. The last 10lbs have been really hard fought thanks to the covid and cold. Sometimes less than a pound a week.

Anyway, it's still a pretty big milestone and accomplishment.

304lbs to 204lbs going from February 2021 to February 2022.

It's too bad I only logged the last 20lbs. It would have made a neat graph

    Congratulations! I'm still about 36 pounds away from a 100 pound loss. Just think back to when you first decided to start and all those doubts. You've done incredible and had so many wins along the way.

    You can do it! I always say that weight loss always "simple" it's just not always "easy"

    Especially once you've been at it a while, those pounds become hard fought.

    Losing 100 lbs is a major accomplishment. Yeah!! But I completely understand about feeling worn out by colds and Covid. When I feel like crap, it’s hard to get excited about anything.

    Please take care of yourself. Being at a healthy weight is only one part of good health. ❤️

    One hundred pounds is nothing to sneeze at. That's fantastic !!!!! Congrats, I do hope you can stop catching covid though, that sounds terrible and I'm so sorry to hear that. But keep going, you're going in the right direction. Now if I can just stay focused. Great job!

    Congratulations on your awesome accomplishment. What will be your celebratory gift to yourself? What will be your next goal?

    My next goal is to get to my smallest size ever of 175. I was hovering and maintaining at about 185 for a couple of years before covid and was starting to put a little on, but then the lock down hit and I ballooned back up at light speed.

    At 185 everyone told me I was "too skinny", but I still didn't have abs. I'm pretty determined this go around.

    My gift to myself is feeling comfortable in my body :)

    Awesome well done. I weigh over 300lbs and have a lot of weight to lose. I am on a continual quest to lose weight. I feel positive this year and have just started my new nutrition plan yesterday.

    I can relate to not feeling elated when you reach a long held goal. A few years ago I lost 60 odd pounds to get under 200 and it freaked me out a bit. That combined with the arrival of the Xmas season knocked me off my path and I am back at 244 aiming again to get under 200 lol.

    I wish someone had got me to appreciate how well I had done at the time. I have some photos from that time and I looked great but I did not see it back then.

    One thing that might help is finding something that weighs 100 pounds and then lift it (carefully) and appreciate just how much you have lost and how epic you are!

    The item could be a barbell, a smallish person or maybe something from the list at the link below

    In conclusion - you rock!!!!!!!
