May I be the first to congratulate Newfiedarling (Dee) to have lost a hundred pounds! :bravo: :cp: :cb: :jig: :hat: :dance: :woo: :balloons:

Dee, you are a good friend and such a strong inspiration to me! We joined to together last year, and I watched how your ticker would go down each week! WAY TO GO!

I just noticed this too in another post. Thanks for starting this thread Carol.

Congrats Dee!!

I am so proud of you. I admire you so much. When I first started back in February I just loved reading your posts and watching your progress. Probally because you started at about where I started. You are always very inspiring and I hope that you are able to come around more often.
WTG!!! Keep up the good work

I'm not a bit surprised--every time I see that newer avatar photo, I have to double take because she looks JUST like my itty bitty little college roommate. Pictures don't lie...such AMAZING progress!

Carol - thanks for posting the thread. I was trying to be a little less blatent about it, but the attention sure feels good.

Leec - Thanks for the kind words. I know I haven't been around so much in the last couple of months. With vacations and just being busy with summer stuff I just haven't been as regular. You'll see me around much more often now.

Jill - You're right - pictures don't lie. When I need a reminder of how far I come, my high weight pics always get me revved back up again.

Howie - Cloud nine? Absolutely! Great to see you around, posting regularly again!

Laura - we'll all be right here again in no time to congratulate you on your accomplishments. Welcome again!

Breaking Free - I think it's time to start shopping for those leather pants that I promised myself when I started this journed. Still a few pounds to go yet, but I actually find window shopping pretty rewarding. At least now I'm not standing in the store wishing I could fit into the clothes. Now I know I can, and that's a pretty big reward all in itself.

Jen - Thanks for the wishes - just love seeing your face around.

Nori - Thank you so much - I never did catch you on the points challenges. I'll have to jump onboard for September.

Sheila - If it wasn't for such great people like you I don't know how long I'd have stayed on these boards. You've offered lots of great advice to me over the past year. Thank you!

I don't normally post here and I'm relatively new here, so I haven't followed your journey but SUPER CONGRATS on losing 100!!!! Wee haa you rock!!

I assume you're from NF by your nickname there. I'm from NS but now live in BC.

Again a big super congratulations on the big 100! WOW!!!! :carrot:

Dee -- Oh, that's wonderful! I am so glad to hear it!!!!! :carrot:

As for being "less blatent" about it, I learned recently that while we may not individually always invite the hoopla, this community NEEDS it! So, congratulations! Your loss is inspiring and I can't wait for you to post a picture of yourself in those leather pants! Promise?? :)

08-16-2006, 10:20 AM
Dee you do look fabulous and congratulations!

I posted this on the weigh in thread...but it also needs to be here ;)

My wonderful, loving friend...I am SOOO incredibly, unbelievably, endlessly proud of you.

You have been there for me so many times in the last year and a half or so, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that.
You have worked so hard...nonstop, and you've finally reached one of the biggest goals imaginable for people like us. You amaze me, and inspire me every day.

I just love you, awesome woman :hug:
