Way to go, Royal, I told you that you could do it! You rock!

Congratulations, it's feels awesome, doesn't it? I unfortunately never got that feeling, because at my first weigh in, I weighed 17 pounds MORE than the number I had in my head. So it felt like I had gained weight during the first 2 weeks of my diet, but I know that isn't true.

Anyways, do you happen to be a KC Royals fan, or a fan of the UK royals? I'm not a baseball fan, but I'm from the KC metro area. I'm not sure the Royals have many fans left after this season . . .

Thanks everyone.

Yes, it does feel awesome.

And yea, I'm one of the few KC Royals fans left. Although they don't deserve me! I grew up in KC but now am living in Tennessee. Old habit die hard, I guess, because I can't seem to shake my loyalty to their pathetic butts...

Ah, i remember the feeling. It..was...GREAT! lol. Especially since the first time i weighed in i had lost 6 lbs (im guessing water weight, since i ate a LOT of salt.) Keep doing as good as you are, congratulations! :)

I still get excited about every pound too, Pixiefalls! When I am out walking I picture myself holding a 20 and a 25-pound bag of potatoes and tossing them away from me... THAT is how much I have lost!

Hey you are getting really close to OneDerland there! Yay for you... nice going and I can't wait to see your ticker jump right on over that big hump!! :cheer: Save me a place! I'll be there before too much longer! :dance:

Great Job! I have been doing this for very little time but I have lost seven lbs. At first I thought the scale might have been just toying with my head.But now I am just jumping for joy at the fact that I have lost anything. Keep up the GREAT work!
