The Countdown is On

Ladies and Gentleladies,

I have officially started the countdown to the 100 pound mark.  I am now after 2 years of trying within 10 lbs of the 100 pound mark.

My bro-in-law asked me last night did I ever think I could do it.  At first I never thought it was possible, but since some of the crazy experiments that have taken place (Gastric Bypass Exp., 30 in 30, and Half Marathon) my mind set has changed a lot.  Now instead of thinking I cant do it...whatever it may be, I want to know why not.  There is no logical reason that I cannot do anything.  Phil 4:13.  Every single day I think the full marathon is in my future.  Still not 100% committed to the idea but training like I am.

I also have to thank you guys out there that are reading.  It took me almost a year and a half to lose 50 lbs and keep it off.  I yo-yoed back and forth for a while in the beginning, but since the blog has become more and more a part of my diet and exercise I have discovered I have a new found commitment to myself and all of you out there.  I know a lot of days you hear me complain about being sore or tired but that is one part of the weight loss process.  I also enjoy telling you about successes or just some of the crazy things your body does when you lose weight.  It is a process of the mind as well as the body. 

So thanks to you all for your support.  I know I'm not at the 100 pound mark yet...but so close.  Don't worry, you will be the first to know. OK so I may call the fam first, but you will be second for sure! :)

I am a new follower, found you through Lucy's fat to fit... just looked back over your gastric experiment - very inspiring, I have some similar reservations about the surgery to you I think and this was a great idea. I am glad you were not proven wrong.

I am going to enjoy following along and seeing you reach the 100lbs mark!

What a great thing to be able to see. You should be so proud of the almost accomplishment and the weight loss you've had already!!

I love your blog. You are an inspiration to me in my own weight loss journey/struggle.

I also get great encouragement from readers and knowing I am accountable if but nothng to my blog. Having to check in each Tuesday and post my results I do think has helped me.

Your blog is great!
