After two full weeks of teetering back and forth from 198-201, and spending an ENTIRE week at 194-196 I am confident in saying I am in ONEderland! (195 as of this morn) I haven't had a one in front of the scale in 15 years. I wanted so badly to tell everyone when I first saw a 1 number on the scale, but I held back, and waited till I spent a whole week with a 1 in front of the scale. Just wanted to share my success so far.....because, without this site and all you wonderful, supportive people, I don't believe I would of been this successful. Words can't be spoken on how thankful I am of all of you on here.

I'm hoping sometime real soon I will post some updated photos so you can see the progess. I also plan on posting in the mini goals/photo album when I get my before/and current shots together.

Thanks for letting me share my progress with you! :hug:

1994!!!! In 1994 I got my first desk (non-retail) job...I started applying to graduate schools (master's degree in 1998)...I went on my second honeymoon with my (now) ex-husband (didn't help)...hmm...I think I weighed right around 300 lbs. So, 15 years ago wasn't that great for me. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Having your weight start with a ONE is a BIG ******* DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hip, Hip Hooray! New Years onederland or bust! I've been waiting to see this announcement for awhile now, but I ALWAYS knew it would come. You know, this is a great accomplishment. I remember our New Years challenge, and you were getting very discouraged. I looked back on that thread a few months ago, and out of the MANY people who joined it, there are only a small few of us still posting. No matter how long it took, you had perseverance! You made it and did NOT give up like so many of our fellow New Years chicks! You are flying now!

Now you have that part under your belt you can take on the rest, all the way to goal. Just stick with it, you've proven you can do it! Onederland is a fabulous place to be, I'm so glad you are here!

I was thinking about that the other day as well. I think I was at about 212 or so when I started that. I was getting discouraged, but plugged along cause I knew I didn't want to go back. Only forward. And I prob did reach my first 1 a good month or so ago, but like I said I held off posting it cause I was determined to be in the 1's for an entire week. I'd even have 3 or 4 days where I was 198 and then jump on the scale on day 5 to see 200.8. Oops, well, start over again. 1's for an entire week. Also, like one poster said, I had to make sure my mind wasn't playing tricks on me. Is that really a 1? lol


Thanks again everyone! You're all incredible! :hug::hug:
