It will sound so funny, but even though I was just in this 290s thread for a week, it was a HUGE help to me. Having such a tangible goal (get into the next thread) kept me focused, and see all the success-telling graphs made me so excited for the day when I'll have one. I want to see my little icon moved a bit along, not right at the beginning of my goal when I qualify for a weight-tracker.
And now, hooray, here's my good news: I weighed in at 288.6 today . . . So see you in the 80s. Hurry, I can't wait to visit you there!
