If anyone read my blog from yesterday I was 3 lbs away from reaching my 100 lb weight loss. I got on the scale this morning closing my eyes, taking a deep breath, & saying a little prayer. As I watched the numbers go down the smile on my face got bigger, especially when the numbers on the scale went lower than I expected. I lost 4 lbs!! I did it!! I am now down 101 lbs. I've accomplished this July 3 2011. My 16 yr old daughter was sleeping at a friend's house so I called her this morning to tell her & I started crying on the phone. I can't say there is any magic pills or potions or tricks. I did this on my own. No surgery. I didn't take anything to aid in my weight loss. I did this with nothing but willpower, determination, & the strength I found in myself along with the support of my family & friends (friends I see in person, online friends, & my Sparkpeople friends). I still have a long way to go but I'll get there. I'm improving my health, my body, & I keep getting better. Never ever in my life did I think I could do this. The most I ever lost before this was 63 lbs (going to Weight Watchers). I want to thank EVERYONE for their kind words & constant support. This has been one special journey & I can't wait to see what the future holds.
