Mini-Goals - Hello Onederland!

My first major scale victory today: There was no "2" at the front of the number. It said 199.6! I got off and back on three times to make sure it wasn't a cruel mistake, but it was the same each time. :carrot:
Still have a long ways to go to reach Goal, but this was a tremendous milestone, as I have not been under 200 since about 1998.

Congrats!! It's a good feeling eh?! Definitely a reason to keep going, cause it's awesome to see the scale dropping with a 1 in front! I remember hitting Onederland almost 3 months ago and never looked back! So good for you!!:)
That's awesome, hoorah for onederland! Best of luck for the rest of your journey. 53lbs down, what an achievement :D

Was doing some preparation for my move this afternoon and came across a white leather biker jacket with fringed sleeves I'd bought on eBay ages ago. It never fit, but it was so gorgeous I'd held onto it "in case I ever lose the weight" and it had been a steal besides- like 10 or 15 dollars for a Wilson jacket. Well- it fits today! (Although at 94 degrees, it's a bit too hot to wear right now.) In a few months, I will be rocking this awesome jacket- and will have lost enough weight that even be able to wear a sweater under it.

Yesterday the scale decided to be mean and went back to 200, but it's 199.4 today. What a rush!
To reward myself, I spent a few bucks and went to the local rec center for a few hours in their pool and hot tub. It's strange not using food as a reward like I've always done.

That's so amazing! I'm still dreaming of that day so I can just imagine your joy :) Congrats!

I've been sitting here at 199 for one week today, and the scale hasn't budged. I'm ready to scream and have threatened it a few times with some choice words LOL.
On the bright side, I did have three- THREE!- NSV's today!! It was a little chilly, so I decided on long pants instead of shorts. I opened my closet and all the way in the back was a pair of jeans I'd bought about 8 yrs ago back in PA from eBay that hadn't fit when they arrived in the mail. I decided to try them on for the heck of it- and they fit! So I went out shopping in a black t-shirt and leopard print jeans and felt pretty damned good. :) :)
While I was out, I decided to try some new jeans on. I've been wearing my 20W and they are very loose, I need a belt or I could pull them off without opening them LOL. I decided to tempt fate and took an 18W, 16W and a straight 18 and 16 into the try-on room. The 16W and 18 fit! I fit into a non-W pair of jeans! (And the W-size ones were 16, a number I've not seen in about 13-14 years!)
I've been ecstatic ever since :D
Now come on, scale- MOVE!
