Brooke: Not On A Diet: 100 Things I Can Do Since Losing Half Myself!

In case you missed it, on Wednesday I weighed in at 163.6lbs. This means that I have lost a little over half of my original weight. I have lost myself in weight, which is completely and utterly surreal to me still. Two of me equals the old me. I have lost a human being in weight!

Holy freaking shit.

I was 164 at my Weight Watchers meeting, so I was .2 from making it WW official, but that doesn’t matter. Since I weighed in at 164, that it the top of my healthy weight range, which means I can apply to be a WW receptionist!! My dream of becoming a Weight Watchers employee can finally happen.

Umm..holy freaking shit. 😉

I thought that since this is such a HUGE milestone in my weight loss journey, that I would do a fun post. I’m going to share a list of 100 things that have changed since I weighed 327.6lbs!

Brooke: Not On A Diet 100 Things That Changed in 163lbs SAMSUNG SAMSUNGSAMSUNG

As you can see, a lot has changed. I love the changes and wouldn’t trade them for the world. Like number 100 says, I have a way better life now. Life is nothing short of amazing anymore. I’m happy, healthy, loved by a great man, and inspire people every single day.

If that isn’t worth all the hard work and dedication I have put into this journey, then I don’t now what is.

I hope that if you’re struggling, that you read this list and find it in yourself to see that it’s totally worth it!

Also, thank you all for the awesome response to my milestone. I tried my best to tweet, IG, and FB my thanks to you all. But with such an overwhelming response, it got tough. So, if I didn’t say it to you directly, please know that I am always thankful for you cheering me along. <3

    These are 100 amazingly true benefits of weight loss. Brooks is so inspiring to me! What a stud! Can’t wait to get to that “half the person I used to be” milestone. Only 56.5 pounds to go!

  • Majority of those I can relate to. You cracked me up with #33. It is so true being lighter. #39 amen to that! I agree. #16: I use to be hot all the time with a fan on me during winter when I slept. Now I layer up and AC gets cold during summer. Excellent list. I’m so happy for you. When I reach my goal, I’ll be half of an old gwyn. I’m not that far 50 more lbs. Thanks for sharing and making my day.
