Default I just realized something...

I have passed the HALFWAY point to my goal!!!! That is wonderful news to me - even though it is taking a LOOOOOONG time to lose, I'm always glad to pass milestones like this!! Just had to share - mainly for my own encouragement as much as anything else.

Hope everyone else is doing fine on their journey as well!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

That is a HUGE, just a HUGE milestone. And I am so happy for you. You've made it through the 1/2 way mark. Isn't that something? Just look at how far you've come!!! Look what unbeleivable progress you have made.

Looking back, does it really seem all that slow for you? Obviously you're the one living through it, but to me, it seems that you have been losing steadily and at a real nice pace. And just look how close you are to ONEderland. Can you believe it? Isn't this journey just amazing? Aren't you just AMAZING?!?!?

Just keep going, keep at it. Before you know it, you'll be at the 3/4 mark and then, and then..... Ahhh..........

Thank you SO MUCH, Robin!! Getting encouragement is always SO wonderful - but it seems extra special coming from someone who has
been so successful!! It does seem slow in the sense that I wish I could have lost more by now - BUT, I purposely gave myself all of 2007 to lose 65 lbs just so I wouldn't get overwhelmed. Now that I'm getting closer to that, I'm getting impatient.

Thanks again. Your success has been a HUGE inspiration to me, and I sincerely thank you for all of your contributions to this forum as well as my journey.

I can't believe you almost let that slip by unnoticed. It's huge. I know my halfway point down to the decimal point. LOL.

Congratulations and you are so close to getting out of the 200's as well! It's going to be a great couple of weeks for you.

The halfway mark is so HUGE! You have already done MORE than you have left to do!!!! When I hit that point I remember thinking "56 pounds??? I can lose that...no problem!" Perspective is everything and you're on the downhill now!!! I'm so happy for you!
