Drumroll please…

As of today, I have lost 100 pounds!!!  It has been slow going the last couple of weeks, but I finally did it.  I’m so happy!  If someone had told me 7 months ago that I would be here, I never would’ve believed them.  I actually weigh what my driver’s license says now (and I just got it renewed in February, before surgery).

Saturday is my birthday–my 30th.  I’ve been back and forth on how I feel about turning 30.  I’ve decided that I’m ready to leave my 20s behind.  I’m starting my 30s healthier, happier, and more settled than I felt in my 20s.  I always thought 30 was soooo old.  I don’t feel old.  In fact, I feel a lot younger than I did at 25.  Hopefully, thanks to my weight loss and God willing, I have many many more years ahead of me.  So, it’s just a number, right?  RIGHT?!  LOL

Speaking of my driver’s license, I think I might need to get a new one, even though this one doesn’t expire for 6 years.  I don’t think I can bear to see that picture for 6 more years.  Plus, the last two or three times I needed it for something, the person checking it gave me a double take.  LOL  I don’t even recognize that picture and it’s ME.  I feel like I’m finally looking like myself and that the me+100 lbs was a stranger. 

My next goal, which should come pretty quickly, is a BMI < 40.  I’m at 40.4 and calculated that 247 will put me at 39.9.  For those not familiar with BMI, over 40 is morbidly obese, while 30-39 is obese.  It’s a milestone for me, as I’ve been “morbidly obese” for about 6 years now.  After that, I’m not sure what my longer term goal would be.  I’d love to lose another 50 lbs and be under 200 by my bandiversary (2.28).

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I’m soooo happy for you! Again, you are such an inspiration to so many people and to me!

    I think 45-50 lbs in the next 6 months is totally doable by you! You really worked hard to get that first 100 off in just over 6 months! I believe you will be less than 200 by your bandiversary! Go Jaime! 🙂
