Default (How) did you celebrate reaching onederland?

For those who've reached the amazing onederland, did you celebrate or mark the achievement in any way? For those hoping to reach it, do you have any plans for it?

This question is inspired by the fact that I'm getting closer by the day and don't have a clear or definite idea of how I'd like to celebrate when I reach onederland. I'd like to brainstorm some ideas that don't involve retail.

When October 31st came around, I was, indeed, deeply grateful I had remained committed to losing weight. One year & 110 lbs + lost later, I remain grateful every day.

Reached onederland 31.12.2013!

Reached BMI of 29.7 (overweight class!) on July 29, 2014!

I bought a new Life is Good hat to wear jogging...when I first made wonderland.
This time around I was just relieved to be back down.
Never. Going. Back.

Originally, I just wanted to be under 200 and planned to celebrate big by buying an emerald ring that I wanted. However, when I hit 200 I knew that I wanted to lose more and decided to wait until I decided that I was at goal, whatever that weight might be.

So I posted here to celebrate and then went and bought some much needed clothes.

Well for me I haven't been under 200 in at least 17 years. So I am thinking big...we are going to Vegas in Feb. for my 40th. I am going to go shopping a new handbag, Coach or Kors!

New running shoes. At my top weight, movement was difficult for me so getting to ONEderland was a lot about becoming active again.

I went to a running store, had my feet analyzed, and they helped me get the perfect pair. I felt like a princess.

I also started wearing makeup again ... that wasn't a planned on goal, just a side effect of how much better I felt about myself!

I am going to do something I've wanted to do for years. Ride a zipline! San Diego Wild Animal Park has one that travels over the animals.

http://sdzsafaripark.org/safariticke...ne_safari.html

I could do it at my current weight. I'm within the weight restriction. But I don't want to be testing the limits of the harnesses. And I don't want to be dragging the line down.

I've told my friends about my plans. They don't want to ride with me. But they'll be video taping the ride and me screaming all the way down. I'm shooting to do this in September.

I'm hoping to get there this summer! And I have no real clue what I'll be doing besides buying clothes . . .which I've been doing on the way down anyway. Maybe I'll dye my hair red? I haven't done that in years and years . . .

I bought a new outfit (I wore a skirt, which was a miracle for me at the time) and went dancing with my girlfriends.

Thank you everyone for the suggestions! I love the ideas so far.

I have been thinking of what I'd like to do... so far, the ideas are a specific candle (it'll burn and 'disappear' just like the 200s, 190s, etc.) or a bath accessory. Just two possibilities, though. I am definitely still ruminating about it. And I had a high-calorie day today... I hope this doesn't set me away from onederland much/at all. I'm ready to celebrate and shout onederland from the rooftops!
