Thumbs up Big mini goal- very excited

I almost didn't post this thread because I've been blathering about it all over the boards, but then I decided to do it anyway. I'm pretty happy.

Today I made a major mini-goal. I've lost 50 lbs, my 2nd 10%, and I'm halfway to my healthy weight goal (what I've called my intermediate goal) of 169. As an added bonus, I broke into the two-teens at the same time.

I already bought my self-reward (I posted about the pack and light jacket a week or so ago; bought them early b/c they were on sale).

I'm so happy, and proud of myself, and ready to keep going!

Calluna, We started the same size and are the same height, may I ask what size jeans are you wearing? I am pear shape and in 18Ws but can get into 16W. What size do you think 169 will be? I havn't been under 200 since FOREVER.

BTW the 50# mark is HUGE! Congrates

Thank you, ladies!!! It really does feel good - the achievement, having people to tell, and the affirmation. What a positive place this is.

mmiller, I was a size 12 at 170 lbs about 7 years ago (sigh). Right now I'm in an 18 or 18W, and I can button/zip my 16W pants. I would NOT wear the 16s out in public, though.
