How many here have lost a 100 or more pounds at one time?

With this lifestyle choice change; I have lost 107 lbs; would like to make it 115 lbs. Just wondering how many others have lost a 100 or more pounds with their current lifestyle change. I say current in that if I counted the lbs lost in my life I would have at least 250 to about 500 total life time lose! Yeah; I lost and gained; lost and gained. I was on a diet that had a start and AN END!! I celebrated with every end!!!!!

Just hit 98 pounds this morning. I'll get back to you in a week or two when I hit 100


This is the first time I've hit 100 in one period before. The most I've ever done in one stretch before this was about 40 pounds over 6 months before giving up, multiple times. First time I've stuck with it for 12 months, first time I've hit 100. Hope I can get the next 100 just as easily...

There are actually quite a few of us. I lost over 170 since I started back in the fall of 2009. Neil B once had a list of those of us in the triple digit club. Maybe he could dig that up?

Good idea. I wish the group could update it rather than me. :-)

Strange, I lost 100 after my first divorce. I got re-married and gained back 30. I'm getting divorced again, so maybe I'll hit my goal weight?

I lost over 75 lbs in under 3 months back in the summer of 07 (with diet alone). Took me 2 years to put it back on, but I did.
This time, I'm doing things differently. Not so obsessed with speed, and taking a more balanced approach.

(If I got divorced, I would likely starve to death.)

I watched "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead" last night. I might try the Juice Reboot. It seemed to change some lives.

The 200 was a joke referring to his ex-wife...

I'm dense today. I'm going to blame it on lack of coffee. Yeah, that's it.

God damn that is inspiring. Makes me wonder how different my life would be right now if I had kept up my weight loss program I started in 2005, instead of giving up in 2006 and doing nothing until 2010 :|
