Finally!!!!!! :dancer:

I went to my WW meeting this morning, stepped on the scale, and posted a 4lb loss, which pushed me over into ONEDERLAND! 199.6 to be exact. :D

I knew I was close but wasn't sure if I'd make it today or have to wait until next week (I weigh every day but only 'officially' count my Friday weigh-ins plus my scale is 2-3 pounds off the WW scale) so I was super excited when I saw the big grin on my leader's face as she looked at the screen and saw what I weighed. I admit, the emotion of the moment got to me and I was both grinning from ear to ear and choking up a bit.

This is the FIRST time in my LIFE that I have seen a 1 in front of my weight. When I started weighing myself in my late teens, I was already in the low 200s. So it's been at least 20 years. This is such a huge mental milestone for me. You know, when you are just starting off, and have this triple-digit number to lose, it sometimes seems so insurmountable, so 'what's the point' - in fact, that's partly why I have given up so soon so many times in the past. I don't know why this time it 'clicked' and I kept going, but I'm so happy and thankful I did. And now, I 'only' have 40 pounds to go to reach my goal. I can and will do this. There is no going back. I worked too hard and my life now is just too good to do that!

Anyway, I'm pretty darned giddy right now and I couldn't wait to come on to 3FC and share the news!

How great did it feel to put the "Met 7/30/10" on your 5th so-called "mini-goal" but that's no MINI accomplishment! CONGRATULATIONS! You are doing WONDERFUL!

Oh wow! How fantastic! You've come such a long way, through two centuries! What an amazing, amazing journey. I'm so proud for you. (And I find your avatar very motivating! You are just absolutely glowing from a job well done! It pretty much sums up your current victory as well. ;) )

Congrats!!!! I know you must be beyond thrilled. I know I myself can't imagine seeing that 1 on the scale, it seems like a long lost dream some day, but I still keep trudging along. Your journey has been a huge motivator for so many of us on 3FC. Congrats again on reaching this huge milestone!

Thank you so much, Eliana! I have watched your progress over these past several months and it has given me much inspiration and motivation to keep going!

I think that glow might be sweat, haha! ;) But yeah, I was beaming that day, and when I saw that 1 as well. All these little victories make the journey so worthwhile, don't they?

I posted in the progress photos thread as well, but here is a comparison photo of me. The first was taken 14 months and 114 pounds ago. I am also rockin' my new pair of size 14 jeans in the newest pic! :carrot:

It's an amazing accomplishment, and you look TERRIFIC! It has been such an inspiration watching you on this journey! Whenever I get a little frustrated I think of your picture on the 5K finish line and it cheers me up.

Size 14. WOOO-HOOOOO!!!!
