7 year anniversary of 100 pounds lost

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, September 15, 2013

I have kept off 100 pounds for 7 years. I am really proud of that. Here I am enjoying a 10 mile bike ride on my anniversary day.


The day before, I ran 6 miles. The day after I did an arduous 10 mile hike. Here I am January 1, 2005.


I am so proud that I have kept this much weight off. I remember that I could barely walk from my car into the house after work because I was in so much pain from packing all of that weight!

I wish I could say it has been easy to keep the weight off. Once in a while it is effortless, but too often, I battle the urge to pig out on junk food. I am going to post every year on my anniversary so I can get through those tough days (even if I am a little late; last week we moved; didn't have time to post but took time to exercise; love that I have become addicted to exercise). Yesterday I ran 7 miles; today I biked almost 13 miles. I feel so thrilled that I am able to be this physcially active at the age of 65.

    Thank you for sharing. Sharing each year is a great idea! I wonder what % of people keep weight off for 7 years and counting, when they have lost that much. You are definitely one of maybe 5% I bet!!! Congrats.

  You should be very proud. I've probably lost a hundred pounds several times over that same span of time, but keep letting it back in the door. Your success is motivation for others. emoticon
