Eleven Months to the Day!

February 20th, 2009, I went to a new health care provider, because I had recently moved and I had just been notified that in May 2009, I would have Medicare coverage. I told Kathleen (the afore-mentioned health care provider) that I was determined to have gastric bypass surgery and I needed her to document my attempt to lose weight in advance to qualify for the procedure. She was very supportive and helped to guide me to a 61 pound weight loss prior to surgery.

This morning, I stepped on my scale to find that I have lost exactly 100 pounds since that day! This is a big goal of mine. I have a lot more goals to meet, but I am so glad to have accomplished this one.

Please share with me a goal of yours that you are working toward or that you have proudly achieved. I love to read your comments!

Bev, GREAT JOB!!!!
100 pounds gone and never to return. That is awesome.

A goal I can share with you is I want to be uner 200 for the 1st time in about 15 years. I am 8.2 pounds away from that goal.

My biggest life goal is to someday work with fiber full time. That's a long time away, so a closer goal is to be a great mom to the puppy I'm getting on Jan 31. I can't wait.

Congratulations, Beverly, on doing so well on your journey. I'm so proud of you and happy for you. Maybe you could blog a new picture? Or blog about how your mobility/pain has changed the last 100 pounds?

My goal: To drop 91lb - fingers crossed, the hard work starts here!

Congratulations, Bev!
That is an awesome accomplishment.

My goals for the coming year include finding gainful employment and losing 50 pounds. Those are the only areas that need address right now. I'm leading a charmed existence, otherwise.

Congratulations, Bev! That's a huge goal to have accomplished!

A goal of mine is to run a half-marathon this coming November. I know I'm capable of it, but I have to train and follow through. I would love to be in the top 150 finishers (out of 2000+)
