I'm excited that I'm in the home stretch of the WL part of my journey!! I lowered my goal weight to 135 and part of me is scared but super excited to get down to that ;) The smallest I've ever been in my adult life was 150lbs and I'm curious to see what I will look like!

I'm excited that I went on a short vacation, but was still able to lose weight at my weigh-in today. I'm out of the 260's and into the 250's. It has been a long time since I've been there!

I'm excited that I found the strength and energy to take care of myself now and in the future, and that I'll find even more strength and energy in the process.

I've only been at this for a couple of weeks you know. ;)

I'm definitely going to need to buy smelling salts for when I get close to the one hundreds! the last time I saw that on a scale...well, let's just say the memory has been lost in the mists of time!

I am so so so excited that this June I got my head back in the right place and I'm losing weight again. That quote: pick your hard, is great. I've without question have picked the right hard.

I'm excitedly looking ahead to the day I reach 225 ~ that will mean I am at 75% of my goal of 169.5, and Lee Iacocca says the last 25% matters the least. By 225 I should be wearing a size 14, which is a perfectly normal size.

Like CFMama, I am also THRILLED and CANNOT WAIT to reach 199.9!!!! I suspect I will be a fairly normal, average size by 199...I hope so, anyway. This is going to sound totally vain, and I certainly do not intend it to be (!), but, as great as I look at 250 lbs, I cannot WAIT to see how good I look at 199. Heh, maybe I will start getting those "excuse me, do you model?" questions again...well, probably not, I am over 40 now, ha-ha. :)

I'm with you on the finally reaching ONEderland thing. I can't remember the last time I was in ONEderland, and I'm only 22! That tells you how long I have been overweight.

I'm excited that I ordered my 30 Day Shred DVD earlier today. Soon I will be able to "Supercharge" my South Beach way of life. For me to either put up or shut up with my exercise efforts is major. :exercise: Thanks to all who have posted throughout the threads about this DVD! :D

I am so excited that the last year has brought such amazing changes to my life and my health. I am approaching my one-year anniversary of my new life! I too can not wait for that ONEderland post....I haven't been there since high school...more than 20 years ago.

I'm also excited that I have such amazing 3FC Friends and great RL friends coming to visit this weekend.

So much to be excited about! Great thread CF!

I am excited that I am finally back on track and feeling in control of my eating.

I briefly touched down in Onederland a few years ago, but ... Well it will be a majorly exciting day when I reach it again. This time to put down roots and stay!

I am so excited to be where I am in my weight loss. This time I am doing it. I see drastic changes in my whole body. I got complimented on my loss by a neighbor who lives down the street from me. I have never spoken to her and we don't know each other. She said"are youy the lady who drives the white mini van? Wow you lost alot of weight!" My friends admire my dedication to walking almost everyday. My hubby notices my changes and compliments me regularly. I don't feel worried about giving in and giving up like I have every other time. I know I will finish this...because I will. My whole outlook on ME has changed. So...I'm excited too.

I'm excited that, even though I haven't really lost anything for 10 days, I haven't even considered stopping.

Oh, and I'm excited about the size 14 pants I just bought. Yes, they're a little tight, but I'm optimistic that I will be able to wear them within the next week or so. And I'm excited because I was in Penney's buying the pants and I saw a DDD bra that I'm pretty sure I'd be able to fit into. I didn't have time to try it on but I will next time I go in there! That would be nice, to go from a G (DDDD) to a DDD!

What are YOU so excited for!!!! Tell me!

I will tell you! I am excited for you to make it to ONEderland - and beyond. And everyone else as well. It THRILLS, enlivens and yes, excites me to hear of people taking back their lives and discovering the sheer, utter joy in being a healthy weight person.

I am excited that I surpassed my mental block on the scale...you know where you think it is "not achievable" and then you make excuses for yourself. Your success story help me break out of it. Thanks.

Onederland is around the corner for me...now I know I can achieve that....it will be over a decade since I weighed less. I see light in the tunnel!!!! It isn't something that will always be from now on...I am not mentally stuck anymore. This is doable. Why would I choose a premature death? Thanks Robin, Michelle, CFmama...

I am excited that my heart and veins won't be under such great pressure...

I am excited to become lighter on my feet and I won't want to stop moving, instead of being sedentary all day.

I am excited to be considered normal in a crowd and not stick out like a sore thumb.

I am excited to not cringe or instantaneously cry because I look like an inflated balloon.

I am excited to go in normal size clothing stores and not have shopping be the most dredful experience ever...can someone say fashionable variety?

I am excited to not duck out of every picture because I am so embarrassed due to the excess weight.

I am excited when social situations won't be a nightmare, because I will be able to find something that I don't feel like a circus tent in...

I am most excited to break out of my self-imposed bondage that I *created* for myself...saying goodbye to living like a second class citizen....

I am very excited to feel comfortable in my own skin that being obese prevented me from....

I am super excited after I reach my normal healthy weight that I won't have to waste my life thinking about food, how much power I give it, the obsession etc.

I am excited about the inner peace I feel for taking control of my issue.

In losing my excess weight I will be living my life to the fullest. When you have your health and peace of mind, what is better than that?

I am SO excited that I won't be the fattest/biggest person in the room at a certain point...I've played that role for far too long.

I am very excited to have a healthy, normal BMI.

I could keep going...but the biggest thing I am excited for is being that woman God created me to be.

I am excited to not be able to waste my life on negative feelings: depression, anxiety, extreme sadness on a daily basis knowing what my life could be like if I only lost the weight.

I'm excited that I'm back on plan and exercising again.

Wow...how long have you been following your weight loss program?
That is pretty impressive, you are about 1/3 of the way to your goal.
My neighbor has been riding his bike everyday for 10 miles and timing it. He
tries to do the 10 miles under 25 minutes. So far he has already lost 10 lbs
in the last 2 months.

I'm very excited that the cortisone shot for my back pain helped so much I was able to hike for over 2 hours last weekend, as opposed to prior to the shot only being able to walk 8 minutes and then having to rest due to intense pain.

I'm so excited because my size 18W slacks are feeling loose. Soon will be 16Ws and then Misses sizes! :woohoo:

I'm so excited because I enjoy eating healthy.

I'm so excited because I really, really love exercising!

I'm so excited because I am on my way to goal and confident that I can maintain these healthy lifestyle changes for life.

And I'm excited for all of you who are excited, optimistic, positive and confident along with me.

I'm excited about how fast I walk everywhere now. I'm excited about getting to the end of my lap swim and deciding to add five more minutes. I'm excited that when my husband bought a six pack of cupcakes for our son, my son ate one and the other five have gone stale.

I'm so excited;

1-that I no longer have to "wish" I started on the journey to get healthy, on it, and staying on it this time.

2-I know I will get to onederland and never go back to being over 300lbs. last time I saw 199 was 30yrs ago-gave birth to DD

3-It's truly amazing that I can run-never thought I would be able to run!

4-Can go on ALL the fun rides at Hershey Park, never have to worry will this butt fit in the seat, again.

5-It is so much fun to go shopping for clothes and sexy undergarments, and you get to pick what you want to buy, not settle for what's in my size, those dreaded 3 or 4X {specially those ugly granny panties}

Life is what I make it, I now choose to enjoy it and getting heathly is my main focus, onederland here I come!!

I'm excited that I found this thread....what a pick-me-up. I needed this.

I'm excited I haven't gained this summer (tend to gain in the summers).

I'm excited to be far enough into "overweight" not to worry about a pound or so throwing me back into "obese"

I'm excited that activity is so much a part of my life now that the question isn't whether but when to exercise.

And I'm especially excited that my daughter is home for a short visit (from the other side of the world--literally).
