It's like a Christmas miracle. Lost 1.2lbs last week!

199.4lbs this morning!!

And did I cry!!! Happy tears though, I was just so overwhelmed!!! I was so stressed on my way to the doctor's office as I woke up with my TOM again (sorry TMI) and it's a week earlier than it should be so I was like, "Seriously, no one is even going to believe this if I don't get there again, how many more excuses can I come up with?"

I'm so excited I might have danced off a few more ounces!! :carrot::carrot::carrot:

The one thing I was so very thankful for while I sat in my car going to my doc's office was that I knew I had all of you whether it was good news or bad. But I'm even more thankful that it's finally good news today!! Thanks so much for your support all these months I have been here. Onederland is a huge milestone in my weightloss mission and I couldn't have done it without every single one of you. :hug:

Thank you all, I can't even believe it. I keep looking at the "1" in front of the number and it seems surreal.

I meant to add above, the best part---the scale wasn't even considered the 200s when it was bee-bopping through all the numbers (I swear it's like being on the biggest loser when it's trying to calculate for those few seconds and I'm screaming at it to stop on a low number!).

I couldn't wait to tell you all.

I was shaking too much to even consider taking a picture with my phone!

Getting to 199 is so emotional for me, it means I have made it. It was the first BIG goal I had set back in July when all of this started and when I got to 299, I said "ok just 100 more" and then I got that pit in my stomach like "yeah right, sure I will". And now HERE I AM!! It's nothing short of a miracle.

Back in 2010 when I first got below 200 and then lost 100 pounds, Sandi kept a list of ONEderland All*Stars that is a sticky at the top of this forum. I don't think that Sandi is a moderator any longer. I wonder if there is another moderator who would add to that list? If not, I think that you should add a post to that thread to add your name! You are an All Star!!

Thank you all so much, you have no idea how happy I am today. I still have a long way to go but I'm like 2/3rds done and I'm not stopping!

The support and motivation I get from this site is priceless. You are all an amazing group of people and I'm proud to say I know you all (even if it's just online!).

And Ian...don't take it personal! I kept that seat warm since Feb.18 when I got to the 2-teens thread, I never planned on overstaying my welcome!!

Thank you all so very much!! It's been an awesome day, I feel so different and it's only a 1.2lb loss. So much of this mission is so mental for me, it's like giant hurdles I'm jumping over in my brain.

I wore a new outfit today (my 199 mini-goal gift that I bought a few weeks ago) doing my week 7 day 1 of the C25K training. I looked down at myself while I was running and didn't even recognize myself. My arms and legs and stomach don't even look like me. I know it's just new clothes but they changed my whole perspective. I did wonder (for 1 second!) if I would have felt so wonderful in these clothes if I was still 200.6 like I was last week and then I remembered the 200s are overwith and I never have to worry about this again!!

I'm going to shower and change out of my new workout clothes and wear something beautiful for when my husband gets home. He's been just as much support as all of you, except he's been dealing with the tears in person the last few weeks!! Tonight is going to be a good, good night (to quote the Black Eyed Peas song!). I'm so very excited about 199, sorry if I seem ridiculous over this!

OMG asjb, thank you so much for your message! It makes me want to cry (happy tears!)!! Some people around here give me too much credit sometimes! I seriously treat people like I want to be treated and then any advice I give comes straight from my heart, trying to "pay it forward" with all of the amazing help and motivation I have received both from 3FC and in real life. :hug: Thank you for taking the time to write that out to me, made my day!!

Thanks everyone!!! Today has been THE best day I have had for a while.

When my husband got home, I modeled my outfit and asked if he could tell I was 1.2lbs lighter than last Monday!!
:dance::dance::dance:

It's a good thing he appreciates my sense of humor! I think he was just so happy to be celebrating with me tonight rather than me rehashing the scale stories like I did the last couple of weeks.:tantrum:

All of your comments made my whole day, I really couldn't wait to share my moment with you all. You all share the weightloss battle with me every day, I'm so glad we have each other to celebrate, vent, chitchat, everything!! :grouphug:

You have deserved this "onderful" goal for so long (especially since you really have been so patient and determined) I thank you for letting us come along for this ride with you too as I know that I am happy just thinking how happy and joyous you are. Ohhhhhh your hubby is really gonna squeeze your hand MUCHO times tonight...

Hugs to you... if I can find you up in the bright clouds up there in the sky!!

Thank you all so much!! I slept like a baby last night, like the weight (literally!) of the world was off my shoulders.

My next mini goal is to weigh less than my husband. He weighed 227 when I started my journey. He weighed in at 190 this morning, wtf!!?? He looks amazing though and his health is improving every day that mine does so I'm very happy about that. But seriously, I just want to weigh less than him now! Plus he's taller than me so he looks SKINNY!

Let me get back to my Cloud 9 now. It's so relaxing at the moment!
