I don't want to spam everyone with a new post, but I made it!

Matt may not have wanted to start a new thread, but I've no problem with it. Sorry friend, this deserves it's own.

According to Matt's ticker, he weighed in this morning at 199 lbs!!!

199 lbs!!! With a starting weight of 446.8 lbs. From the 4 hundreds, to the 3 hundreds, to the 2 hundreds to the 1 hundreds. ONE-DER-LAND!!!


Congratulations on a stupendous, stupendous job. I as so thrilled to be a part of your journey, in whatever small capacity.

Wishing you continued success and much happiness.

Oh my gosh, I'm so happy for you, I'm all teary.

Thanks everyone!

I just completed a marathon walk yesterday. I'm a bit sore today, but not all that bad. As I thought, my weight jumped up after the walk due to water retention, etc.

09-13-2010, 11:00 AM

That's just awesome!!! I am soooo excited for you!!!!

I have added you to the official list. I think you may be the only one who is on all 3 lists!!!! Wooo Hooo!!!

Matt, I want you to know what a personal inspiration you have been for me. You make me believe that this IS possible. Thank you for being here and thank you for sharing.

Robin made this post, so I can't claim to have been fishing for compliments (although they are very nice and appreciated)!

This weekend I bought size 32 waist pants. I'm wearing them right now. When I hold them up I think "there is no way in **** these are going to fit" and they do.

09-27-2010, 02:49 PM
And you've lost a good six pounds since! :yikes: I swear there's some two sided sticky tape all around onederland. Once you're in, the scale starts moving again but EVERYONE get stuck just before.
