I hit onederland today. That puts me at 145 pounds down. It is somewhat surreal to me. I remember starting this journey and thinking that getting below 300 without surgery would be pretty much impossible - and look now, I am actually below 200. Wow.

My senior year of high school I went for my college physical. I can remember the doctor writing down my weight as 202 and checking the obese box. It was so humiliating. I wish that had been my wake up call, all those years ago, but I can't change the past only move on from here.

So here I go, keep on keeping on!

Good job! My senior year athletic physical I was 202lbs. And devastated. And guess what? I weigh 10lbs less than that now! And you will too!

145 lbs down is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Congrats on reaching onederland! :carrot:

You are 75% of the way to your goal! Fantastic! I know what you mean about thinking the journey would be impossible. I thought so, too, but now I'm no longer trying to lose 100 pounds - just 35. That doesn't seem so bad!

You can be really proud of yourself. Welcome to Onderland.

That's an incredible accomplishment, CherryPie! Your little dog is just prancing his way to the end of the ticker.

Great job!

Well done! Way to keep with it. Weight loss isn't easy, as we all know, and you've done a heck of a job.

Thanks so much everyone. I just booked a trip to see relatives in Georgia in a few weeks. The last time I flew, I needed a seatbelt extender, couldn't put the tray down - it was a horrible experience. I am looking forward to flying as even though I am still large, I'll pretty much be able to fit like a normal person!

Thanks for the inspiration and keep it up!!
