100 Pounds DONE :) Let's celebrate! WOOT!!!!!!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, October 08, 2012

Well, I thought I would share with you amazingly beautiful Spark Family members of mine that I am OFFICIALLY DONE with 100 pounds! YAYYYYYYY!

Took me a while, but hey... this is forever! It's not a race and I'm certainly not in a competition with anyone else. Taking my time is what's working for ME. KNOWING what works for me and taking my time is what will ensure that this "holds" forever! Right? :) I have drastically changed my life. My portions are finally under control, I love being active and sweating, I LOVE better-for-me foods and have recently vowed to stop eating things I cannot pronounce. Worked for our ancestors! :)

And without further adieu.. here are some piccies!



I had a little issue with a few trolls on FB about that side photo as I got my tattoo updated during my journey.. here's the proof of the updating tattoo.. lol Yes, I really had to post this because some people didn't believe that was me... LOL! Wow.. is it SO shocking that someone worked their butt off (literally) for this!? Some people amaze me...

A once SUPER ugly reminder of my past, covered with something that reflects me MUCH better. One of them apologized, but I truly have no space in my life for people that don't want to love and support me. I am a positive person and... well, I'm doing awesome things. If they don't like it, they can kiss my amazingly gorgeous (and MUCH SMALLER) toosh :) hehe

And, just for giggles, I did a few facial comparisons... just for myself..






SO COOL! :) I'm transforming. I'm a little less butterfly and more raging Phoenix, but.. yes, same goes! LOL

I've been asked a bunch of times why I started this journey and to tell my story.. I think I might video that soon so people can see/reference that. Not today as I have a horrid cold and no one needs to see that.. lol But I think it's a good idea!

And now... some things that make me smile or are "so me".. :)





HOLY CRAP I've lost ONE HUNDRED pounds! That's like.. 400 sticks of butter! LOL Or you know, a LOT of something :p A 2nd-grader! HAHAHA! That's 350,000 calories that I either burned off or DID NOT EAT. WHOA! How bad-a$$ is that!?!?

This feels so freakin' awesome!

Just had to share it with you guys, 'cause.. I'm freakin' out and I love y'all!! XOXO



Most of these pictures are available in a much larger format on my Facebook fan page, if you want to see them that way, please feel free to go there and check that out:

    Wow, that is so amazing. I am just at the beginning of my own journey (hopefully with similar results at the end). Your story is so INSPIRING and IMPRESSIVE. You give those of us with a lot to lose (in my case: 136 lbs) some hope!

    You are rockin' it Sparksister! What stand's out to me is how your body language has changed between the first set of pictures and the second. In the more recent ones, you're standing a bit straighter and your attitude is starting to shine out (note sassy hand -on-hip pose)!

    Many congratulations on all of your success and your transformation. You're beautiful inside and out! When you're ready to start thinking about maintenance, I invite you to come and have a look at the 'At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance' team:

http://www.sparkpeople.com/
myspark/groups_individual.asp?g
id=1111

Many people find it useful to start planning for maintenance long before reaching goal (I know I WISH I had, especially given my history as a yo-yo dieter) and you absolutely don't have to be at goal to join the team.

Check us out and if you're up for joining, please do! If you don't think you're ready yet, keep us in mind for the future. Either way, I hope to see you there some time soon.

Congratulations again!

    Girl, you are such an inspiration!! And you look amazing! Your smile is contagious and you can see how healthy and happy you are:)

I can't believe someone would honestly think you would post someone else's picture! I also have a tattoo on my arm that I got when I was going through a bad time in my life. I never finished the whole thing so I plan to get it covered up soon too. Tattoos can change and so can people! Hopefully, their ignorance will change as well.
