A little worried

Tonight I decided to organize all the finished chapters and save them into one document to test the flow and get the word count. Turns out I am already on 101,707 words and I have at least five more chapters to write. After reading and re-reading, I am convinced none of it is filling; so what do I do? Trim scenes that I consider important/fundamental even though same do not include the main characters? Or do I keep it as long as it is? Is the length of my project going to negatively affect editors' decision when I finally submit it? Do they prefer shorter books?

Decisions, decisions...
