This may sound like a dumb question but here it goes. I am fairly new here and I keep seeing a reference to onderland. What is it?

Onederland is what we call it when your weight starts with a "1" so when my weight goes from 200+ to 199 I would have made it to "onderland". I think some people also use ot to refer to the fact that they have lost 100 pounds, but the first use if more common.

Lightbulb Maybe because it is spelled wrong?

I finally figured it out too but shouldn't it be spelled One-derland instead of Onderland? I think that stumps newcomers. And, I'm a college graduate too!
LOL

Anyway, for those of us who seem like we have been in Two-derland forever, yes, it will be nice when the number rolls off and we are in the One-sies instead of the Two-sies.

For me, I haven't seen 199 lbs since 1983!!! I can barely wait.

I know pamatga.
I managed to loose 65 pounds in 4 months 10 years ago and was down to 170. ( the smallest I ever was as an adult) Then I started nursing school and gained almost all of it back in one year. It is a much harder road this time I was only 24 then and now I have 3 more kids (twins who were big and wrecked havoc on the belly and a 9lb 8 oz boy three months ago. I saved all of those clothes because I knew I would get there again one day I just didn't know it would be called Onderland...lol.
