Finally 100 lbs+ Lost

So, I get on the scale this morning and to my surprise, I've lost 4.6 lbs this past week. Last week I was .3 lbs away from hitting the 100 lbs lost mark and was so surprised at the number this morning.

So I've lost a total of 104.3 lbs officially and that is starting from my heaviest weight I ever recorded which is 325 lbs. Most people would not want to share that number, and trust me, I didn't want to for a long time. Since I started really eating healthy and working out consistently, I've wanted to set an example for others.

I was always the fat kid, whether it be in class, in the family or in the building. It's been hard and I had tried everything in the past to loose weight except for diet and exercise. I always thought-- eh it'll never work. So, when I finally decided to make my lifestyle change, to my surprise, diet and exercise was really all I needed.

I've battled PCOS and metabolic syndrome, both which make it hard for me to loose weight and now, with the choices I've made, I am slowly reversing those diseases one pound at a time.

So, 325 lbs is my heaviest weight, and I can't really remember the exact date that was, but that number is burned into my memory. I don't ever want to weigh that or anywhere close to that number ever again. I remember how unhappy I was even though I pretended I wasn't.

Each pound that I shed is one step closer to where I want to be. My overall weight loss goal is 180 lbs. However, when I made the decision to change my lifestyle, I made a goal of reaching 200 lbs by the end of this year, which seems like something I might be able to accomplish.

So today, I officially weigh 220.7 lbs--- I can't even remember the last time I weighed that. It's been a great feeling to have been able to loose 100 lbs, and I am looking forward to loosing the last 45 - 50 lbs. I hope you continue to follow me on that journey.
