No kidding! That is a huge reduction is weight. You gotta be feeling so much stronger and mobile. Now to hold it as you said, or maybe inch it down to 299. You reached a goal, a significant milestone, and have to "pace" yourself for a while. Keep at it and congratulations!

Feels good doesn't it. Congrats on your weight loss. I have lost 113lbs. and went from 335 to 222 as of this morning. Keep it up. Keep your focus, keep riding, and hang in there. It's a wild journey that sucks at times but worth it in the end.

Congratulations! You have completed the hardest part, getting started and staying with the plan for a long enough time to lose 100 pounds. You can keep up the good fight, you are worth it. My brother had bariatric surgery and lost 130 pounds 3 years ago. He still journals his daily food.

Lifestyle (eating habits) change! 30-35 Carbs per meal. A LOT OF CHICKEN, TURKEY, FISH AND VEGGIES! Switched from regular milk to unsweetened Almond Milk. Biking and weightlifting 4 to 6 days a week. I still eat ice cream, cookies and chips but as rewards minimally though!

I was 401 November of last year. Dropped carbs except for fruits added a ton of veggies and mostly eat lean protein. Down to 284 on Saturday. Started with walking in November but have added biking, hiking and swimming to vary thing up a bit. My goal is 225 so I still have a ways to go but I feel better and I'm much healthier than before. I use the Myfitnesspal app to track my calories.

It's great to be part of a forum where other people know the struggles of weight loss but get to share huge successes like your 100 pounds. In no time you will be under 300 and not looking back.

congrats again and thanks for the helpful inspiration.

Dan
