Mini-Goals - Amanda in Onederland
12-12-2006, 01:35 PM
This morning the scale read 199.6. And I'm not dehydrated, nor is there any other reason it should be low...in fact, it should be running high, since I did a leg workout yesterday I think I did something to my quad, which is kind of sore and swollen.
So even though it hasn't been two days (and I said to myself i'd wait until I'd seen it two days to tell everyone), screw it. I'm calling it. Amanda is in onederland.
Wow Amanda! That is a HUGE milestone! Big congratulations to you on such a major change in your life. You must feel absolutely "wonderful", and well you should!

That is fantastic!!!!
I hope to join you there in eleven more pounds!:hug:
Did you find any tricks or tips to losing your last ten pounds or so to GET to ONEderland? I am having one heck of a time getting there!

Cheryl - I stalled out on the last 10 lbs getting there too! It just seems to be a sticking point for a lot of people. I upped the water (5-6 liters a day), ate REALLY cleanly, and was at the gym nearly every day, and then it just took patience. I also started trying to get more protein, which seemed to help a bit in faster losing...I've been meeting an 80g or more a day for the past couple weeks.
Fiber is important too - 28g a day or more for the past month or so!

Wow, just wow!!! I'm so happy for you. What a ONE-derful feeling that must be. Actually it's all I've been thinking about lately. I will take your tips into consideration as I am 22 pounds, no, 23 pounds away from there.
Enjoy your hard earned victory and keep up the fantastic work!!! You really are an inspiration!!
