    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!!!!!

    Great work!

    I started on October 18 of last year using Weight Watchers. I began riding last spring. To date, I've lost 117.4 pounds.

    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.

    Lost 387 pounds since March 2005
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    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 :|
