Yeah, I promised I wouldn't talk too much about the diet over here, but I just hit a really enormous milestone, so I feel like crowing about it.
Officially, as of this morning's weigh-in, I've lost 100 pounds. That's since I started this diet in October '08 about 15 months ago. Which is not the heaviest I've ever been. I'm probably a good 120 pounds lighter than I was, say, about seven years ago.
But there we are. 100 pounds. One hundred pounds. One. Hundred. Pounds.
There are comparison pictures in the celebratory post for the diet blog.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted some links to Facebook and Twitter of the pictures from our New Year's party for 2000. Matt clicked on the link and looked at the pictures, just to see what we were all up to, ten years ago. "Wow," he said. "You're probably not going to believe me, but at the time, I really didn't think of you as being heavy or fat at all, but looking at these now... wow. What a difference."
I still haven't decided what I'm doing to reward myself for this milestone (set of milestones, actually, as I've also finally officially left the "obese" BMI category and am now merely "overweight"). If you have any ideas, by all means let me know. But it starts right here, with me shouting it from the rooftops, or at least the blogtops:
I'VE LOST ONE HUNDRED POUNDS!!!
