100 lb. Club - Okay.. so...
02-27-2010, 02:31 PM
In the next few days (hoping for tomorrow) I'll be BELOW 200 MOTHERFREAKINGPOUNDS!!!!!!!! *breathe*
So... I promised myself that when I got below 200 MOTHERFREAKINGPOUNDS *breathe* that I would get to do certain things...
I will be going horseback riding within the next month. I rode from the time I was 2 until I was 19. I miss it like air...
I will take NEW progress pictures
I will get another show collie puppy (and I'm flying down on the 9th of April to do just that!)
So what are some of the things that YOU on the cusp of ONEDERLAND are reserving until you get there????
02-27-2010, 02:53 PM
You are just a breath away!!! Congrats on all your hard work! Enjoy your horseback rude. You've earned it. Right now I'm considering the new clothes I have to buy my reward. I may do something big when I get to goal but I don't know what just yet.
02-27-2010, 03:09 PM
I guess just fitting into my spring and summer clothes again would be a big treat for me.
02-27-2010, 03:14 PM
fitting into the clothes the last time I lost weight will be good. DH is hoping for some new lingerie. I will have to think on that one.

LOL My husband is the same. Maybe that's why you and I've got so many kids. ;) I have 4.:D
02-27-2010, 03:27 PM
I told myself when I get down to 199 I would get my belly button pierced.
02-27-2010, 03:56 PM
It's been amazing watching your progress, I'm holding my breath for you :)
When I hit 199 I bought jewelry and clothes.
I think riding a horse is a great way to celebrate. Imagine the feeling of freedom, awesome!
02-27-2010, 03:59 PM
My PLAN was to try on everything left in my closet (I've been removing items as they get too big and only then trying on the next size down), but just couldn't bring myself to do it yet.
02-27-2010, 04:08 PM
~I am just so dang proud of you girl~
What a true hero you are To so many
I Absolutely adore you & your accomplishments!
Wow~onederland Let her in to the land of onederful happenings

You are so close to becoming a one hundred something pound person! I'm immensely excited for you, as this is a HUGE milestone.
Look how far you've come. Look what wonderful things you've accomplished. It's very overwhelming and quite emotional when you stop to think about it. I know how spectacular you feel and I am so happy for you.
The truth is, there are no words that give it enough justice.
02-27-2010, 05:26 PM
Gah, I can't even think about it. I know it will be a huge milestone for me, but I'm having a hard time imagining it so planning anything to mark the occasion is beyond me right now.
I'm so happy for you with all your plans, though! You've worked so hard for it!
02-27-2010, 05:39 PM
This is so thrilling!!!
02-27-2010, 05:47 PM
OK, forgive me for being all sappy here, but I haven't actually done anything about the big reward I was promising myself for dropping below 200. I had lots of things in mind, and there are plenty of things I want to do to celebrate, but honest to goodness, right now, I'm just so HAPPY that it's really been its own reward. Everything about where I am now in my process has me walking on air. So I don't want to do something just to do something, I want to wait until I know exactly what the perfect thing to do to commemorate it is. In the meantime, I'm basically just happy to be running up and down the stairs fifty times a day, walking around in pretty, flattering clothes, crossing my legs and fitting through narrow passages...I don't even know. There are just so many simple joys in my life at the moment that people who haven't ever been morbidly obese couldn't possibly understand. Eventually, I'll think of something, and I love reading about what everybody else is planning to do, but for me right now, there's nothing I need or particularly want except to finish losing and get busy on maintenance.
02-27-2010, 05:47 PM
I've given myself the reward of giving up the fear of breaking things or not fitting in places. :D Something about getting under 200 allowed me the freedom to stop worrying about things like that, which is huge for me.
Horse back riding! How awesome is that?! I'm so happy for you!
02-27-2010, 05:57 PM
When you are under 200 pounds you can ride a mule to the bottom of the Grand Canyon!
02-27-2010, 06:00 PM
Congratulations, You have worked so hard and totally deserve this.
When I get below 200 pounds my BFF has promised me a full SCUBA life support system (The breathing stuff) and I will be going diving. Hopefully this will happen soon.... :crossed:
02-27-2010, 06:20 PM
Wow - being on the cusp of such an important milestone must be a fantastic feeling! I'm not close enough yet to have any specific under 200 goals in mind, but I think horseback riding sounds like a great idea.
02-27-2010, 08:43 PM
cfmama, I'm gonna be listening for that yell tomorrow... :listen: :D
02-27-2010, 09:48 PM
How exciting, you are SOOOO close!
I haven't thought of what I'll do when I get under 200, but I do have the reward of going skydiving in mind for when reach goal.
Now you've got me thinking I should think up something to reward myself for reaching ONEderland ... maybe it will help spur me on!
Oh, and I went horseback riding for the first time today! It was so much fun! I'd love to do it again. We went just on an hour-long ride but it's at a nearby state park and they have various lengths/experience levels and even an overnight ride. :)
02-27-2010, 11:25 PM
Nothing, I'm doing it all now. And having one heck of a time. :)
02-27-2010, 11:34 PM
DC: lol!!!! You brat ;)
02-28-2010, 12:17 AM
Oh this is such incredible, exciting, and inspiring news!!! Onederland!!!
You have certainly earned it, my dear!
Please tell me how the horseback riding goes! Horseback riding is one of my big goals too!!!
02-28-2010, 12:29 AM
What is the weight limit for horseback riding? Do you have to be under 200s for a "regular" horse?
02-28-2010, 12:35 AM
I haven't really thought about it but OMG I'm so excited for you!!! :)
Also... I don't know what I'd do if I had to wait to get on a horse! I did wait until I was under 250 to get on a horse again. Now that I'm at the weight I am not I don't feel self conscious on one.
I can't wait to hear your announcement about making it into onederland!! :)
02-28-2010, 09:20 AM
Weigh to go!! You are such an inspiration to all of us. I am very happy for you. Can't wait to hear all about your riding adventure. :)
When I reach onderland, I am going to get a makeover, hair, makeup and new clothes. I can't wait!
02-28-2010, 09:58 AM
I am a long way away from it but hope to be there this simmer. My wonderful sister gave me a $100.00 giftcertificate for a local spa. I hate sitting to even get my hair cut because of my weight. Getting a manny or peddy gives me a panic attack. So when I'm below 200 I plan to do that. I also want a bike. A nice one. I've always wanted a realy good bike and to cruise all over the neighborhood and through the bike trails. Ya know like an active healthy person lol.
BTW Tammy I have to say. I have had the pleasure of hearing about your journey all this time and hope that you know how TRUELY inspiring it has been. You rock my socks lady.
02-28-2010, 10:34 AM
I cheated and bought myself a big reward now - my Gowear Fit. Hopefully, that will help me get to Onederland sooner!
I don't have any specific plans or rewards in mind - but maybe I will start thinking about some kind of physical activity that I can't/don't want to/wouldn't be comfortable doing now,
02-28-2010, 01:03 PM
For real...I can't imagine! HOOT for you! I am so very very excited for you!
02-28-2010, 01:39 PM
I am kind of far from that right now - but I imagine the reward will be huge both physically and mentally! I just wanted to say that you are totally rockin' this weight loss - GO YOU!!!! :cp:
02-28-2010, 01:51 PM
201.8 today... let's see what tomorrow brings!
02-28-2010, 02:10 PM
you go, girl, I'm rooting for you too! I check your ticker when i read a thread you've posted in to see how close you're getting. :D
As for me, I don't know what I'll do. I have as many dogs as I can handle (mine are Great Pyrenees, and 2 Pyrs= a LOT of dog) or I'd be right there with you. One of mine is still a puppy (she's about 80 lbs now!) and growing like mad.
I think I shall have to think about that a little more. It's still several months off, but it will be fun to plan something wonderful. :)
02-28-2010, 02:20 PM
Ooh, I'm excited for you, will be waiting for that scream!
I've got 6.5lbs to go to hit Onederland and just can't imagine what it's going to feel like that day, I hope not too long away.
I haven't thought of rewarding myself for hitting Onederland, haven't really given myself any rewards along the way so far, apart from a few new clothes to see me along the way. Maybe I should start thinking of ideas.
02-28-2010, 02:28 PM
I didn't make any special plans but like Eliana posted, the fear of breaking/not fitting has gone and for me that is a huge reward!
Congrats girl!!!! You have worked so hard and deserve every reward you can imagine!
I'm so happy for you--can't wait to hear you yelling your way into onderland!!!!
02-28-2010, 02:32 PM
How exciting for you! To be right on the cusp! I am so darn happy for you and all you have accomplished. I can't wait to celebrate with you when you reach this amazing milestone! :hug:
02-28-2010, 02:44 PM
I'm so excited for you!
I don't know what I want to do when I hit 199. I do know that when I'm closer than that to goal, I'm going to go get pin up/boudoir photos done!
02-28-2010, 02:46 PM
ohh! I thought of one! I want a tatoo. I'm not sure what or wear yet, but if I decide on a place that doesn't shrink too much, maybe I'll make that my 199 reward!
