Yay, Ritzy!!!!! :cheer::cheer2::cheer::cheer2:

10-12-2007, 05:10 PM
I thought we were going to have to wait for your "official" weigh-in. I'm so excited we don't! CONGRATULATIONS! You have so earned this! When I hit it, my husband offered to take me out for ice cream to celebrate. I don't recommend this option, BTW.

GREAT WORK! And - you are now about 65% of the way to goal. Equally amazing!

10-12-2007, 08:44 PM
:bravo: Way to go!! That's so exciting!!

10-12-2007, 09:08 PM
Wooooohooo!! Congratulations!!


10-12-2007, 09:44 PM
Congratulations!!!! And you didn't just sneak in, you fell in! I remember when I entered Twoterville I just barely made it with a 299.8 and I worried all the following week that some Water Weight Fairy or a Sodium Fairy would wave a wand at me and I'd land back into Threedom on my next weigh-in. You can rest assured that you are safely into Onederland now!!!

10-12-2007, 10:27 PM
Way to go! :carrot: you're doing a One-derful job! :)

10-12-2007, 10:58 PM
:bravo: That is terrific!!! I can't wait to join you in that one-derful land. :D

10-13-2007, 12:39 AM
Congratulations Ritzy!! :cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

10-13-2007, 08:26 AM
Oh, y'all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are such a FANTASTIC support group!! You all deserve a reward for being SO supportive! Wow...I'm blown away with your awesome support and sweet attitudes! It makes the acheivement even more sweet with wonderful folks like you cheering me on. For those of you who are about to One-derland - keep on keeping on!!! You will get there, and it is absolutely beautiful here!! ;) I will say that hitting that mark has given me a NEW motivation. I'm not happy with just being in the ONEs anymore....I'm now thinking I have to get out of the 190s as soon as possible! LOL! :lol: But, that is what this is all about right?

Thanks again to you all!!! :hug: :hug: :hug: You just will never know how much your support and encouragement mean to me and my weight loss journey.

Yes, Robin, I do know what you mean - I cannot believe it either!! :D

As for the reward, LaurieDawn, my family only knows that I have passed a major milestone (I haven't told them the specific number yet), and my husband and kids wanted to take me out to eat to celebrate! I said, "NOT!" :D They just laughed. My oldest son suggested to my husband that they go buy me a new dress. I'm not sure I want that either simply because I don't want to stay this size very long and I don't want them to spend money on something I won't use for long. Does that make sense or am I crazy to think like this? :lol:

Thanks again..........y'all are absolutely the BEST support group anywhere! :hug:

10-13-2007, 12:18 PM
Woohoo! Congratulations Ritzy, you must feel like you're on cloud 9. Onederland is a ONE-derful place, and I'm so happy to see you cross this milestone. :hug:

10-13-2007, 12:23 PM
I am SO EXCITED for you!! I can't wait to join you someday! Wow what a great accomplishment, you should be VERY proud of yourself!

TWENTY FOUR pounds gone!

Thanks, Kim_Renee!! I DO feel great about this accomplishment. And you know, there is just something about it - it makes me want to keep going! There is a "No Parking" sign just inside the city limits of ONE-derland for me. I'm getting really anxious to move on down the road! ;)
