100 lb. Club - From nearly 400 pounds to ONEDERLAND

03-05-2010, 11:39 AM
Today is the best freaking day of my weight loss career so far...

this morning.

I stepped on the scale.

And it told me... 199 pounds.

199 pounds. 199 POUNDS!!!!!!!

when you start off at close to 400 pounds... to be 100 ANYTHING pounds is like the hugest thing you never ever never thought that you could do. I have not been this weight since 10th grade... 17 years.

There are no words to convey how I am feeling right now... just... none. At all.

This also means I have less that 50 pounds left to lose.

I can't FREAKING BELIEVE I made it to ONEDERLAND!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't have done it without everyone here. Loves!!!!!!

03-05-2010, 11:42 AM
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

I am so freakin happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!! You totally deserve it. Way to go girlfriend! I can't imagine how sweet this must taste to you. Wow..I'm tearin up for you...YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!

03-05-2010, 12:05 PM
Wahoo!!! I'd say "I can't believe it" but that isn't true. I DO believe it! I believe it because you worked SO hard for it! You have an enormous amount of patience to see this through!

Relish it!

03-05-2010, 12:06 PM
Yaaay! Now the hardest part--don't look at the scale for a week or so (or you may end up throwing your scale out the window because you drank some water).

I can't tell you how many times I've gone into the bathroom to look at that pretty "19x" in the past 3 weeks. Welcome to ONEDERLAND!

03-05-2010, 12:07 PM
FanFreakingTastic! What a great job! I would love to hear what you did, how long it took you and of course, some photos!!

BTW, Do you raise/show dogs?? Me too!! Brittanys!

03-05-2010, 12:10 PM
There aren't words! I am so excited for you!! You have worked so hard and deserve this!! Wooo Hoooo!

And of course I have added your name to the list!!!!


03-05-2010, 12:11 PM

03-06-2010, 09:45 AM
I don't know what to say. Congratulations doesn't quite seem to convey how amazing this is. I want to reach through the screen and give you high fives till my hand hurts. We should be lifting your teeny tiny self on our shoulders and cheering. A parade, there should be a parade, and you should be waving your small sassy hand. You are a superstar!

03-06-2010, 09:57 AM
Congratulations, what an inspiration!

03-06-2010, 11:36 AM

Thank you so much everyone!

03-08-2010, 03:55 PM
cfmama, you are a real inspiration. When I started reading here almost a year ago we were close in weight and I thought, "oh, I'll just go along with her." You have totally kicked my butt! Even when I was "on" plan and before the massive backslide, you were kicking my butt! Let me just say that I really look forward to your posts and your progress reports every time I come here. Thank you so much for everything you share.

03-12-2010, 10:34 PM
Congradulations! I am so happy for you. May you never see that 2 EVER again!

03-12-2010, 10:59 PM
Congratulations on an amazing achievement! I can identify with your story, starting out at 440 lbs myself. It seemed like such an achievement to get into the 300's then 200's. I can't imagine how it feels to reach onederland, although I hope to know what it feels like in the near future. Again, congrats. You must feel great! Wishing you all the best as you continue your journey. :bravo:
