Aha!  I made it!  Under budget and under schedule!  LOL.

Another 5% net G.O.N.E.  (I’d projected July 27 to hit it.)

And now I’m officially halfway in terms of effort.  Eight 5% net milestones behind me, eight to go…

If you had told me last December that before the end of July I would remove 113 lbs and try whitewater kayaking, I would have laughed at you.  Not WITH you, but AT you.


By the way, that’s also another fun milestone.  My personal trainer is 112 lbs.  This means I’ve now officially lost an ENTIRE PERSONAL TRAINER in weight.  When I started I was using cats (10 lbs) as units of weight.  🙂  I’ve removed over 11 cats.  (I love the image of 11 cats strapped all over my body.  A big furry, HEAVY, wriggling, complaining mass.  LOL.  Much less interesting to imagine my trainer just sitting on my back, piggyback style!)

The difference is that she’s probably 95% fat free, while the weight I removed is probably 95% fat.  Hehe.



  1. Well most people laugh at me anyway, so I predict that you’ll be 10 and a half stone by christmas, have an Italian boyfriend and a strong desire to travel to Macau and play roulette for some reason or other!

    • Sounds pretty good to me! Where do I sign up? LOL

      Actually, 10.5 stone is pretty close to my goal weight (150 lbs), but I’m not projected to get there until February – that’s assuming I keep losing the percentages I’ve been doing. So your prediction at least for that part is less than 2 months off!

      The rest of your prediction sounds pretty fun, so maybe you’re onto something. 😉

  2. I lost 250 pounds a couple of years ago. I remember getting to 85 pounds and picking up my two children and my best friend’s child and pointing out that I’d lost more than the three rugrats weighed combined. So if cats keep you motivated, so be it. It’s now been two years and I’ve still lost more than those three rapidly growing kids weigh combined.

    • Good on you, for keeping it off! That’s clearly the hardest part. 😯
