    Today I got on my scales and saw a magic number. 153.8

    I am under 11 stone for the first time since I was a teenager...
    I have lost 100 lbs
    I am a healthy BMI
    I am under 70 kilos.

    Joyful and triumphant I think are the words! I know it's not my official LL weight, but I tend to come out lighter on my LLCs scales at the moment!

    It's been worth every penny and moment to get to this major goal in less than 6 months. I know now that I can achieve my wildest dreams if I set my mind to it!

    Pictures to follow this weekend when I've bought myself something new to pose in!

    H U R R A H !
    Cerulean, isn't it a great place to be?

    Now, how are you going to keep this weight off?

    The hard work begins NOW!

    I have been maintaining a 100 plus lb weight loss for four months now and let me tell you, it is far easier to manage the increase of a couple of lbs, rather than have to lose 100!

    Look on every so-called 'failure', when you end up overeating for whatever reason, as an important LEARNING EXPERIENCE instead. In the past, when this has happened you may have decided (like I did) that since you've screwed up, you may as well give up. It isn't necessary.

    Think like a slim person (what do I mean, you ARE a slim person!) and just adjust your eating the next day. I mean, there are always occasions when we eat more on particular days, but in the past I never compensated to balance everything out. Now I try to do that. It isn't difficult, but just means that I have to function in 'adult' mode a lot of the time, rather than "I want it, I'm having it now" child mode!

    I wish you the best of luck, but I figure that you'll be fine. I look forward to reading about how you get on.

    Sarah,

    What a great feeling it is to actually reach your goal. I know we all have our own goals but to actually see that you have lost 100 is just amazing.

    Can't wait to see some pics of you in your new outfit, you work that camera honey. You deserve it.
