Default I made it to ONEderland!

Hi Everyone!

I MADE IT! I am in ONEderland! It feels GREAT!

It has been over TWENTY YEARS since my scale has read 199! The 39 pounds that I still need to lose sure seems a lot more attainable than when I looked at myself having 100 pounds to lose! It has been a journey of SEVEN YEARS to get here. Many starts and a lot of stops cluttered my journey. My eight month plateau was me underestimating the amount of food I was eating and being satisfied with "being thinner" instead of being "thin."

I want to thank all of you at this site for all the encouragement and the support that you gave me as I attempted to hit this mini-goal! There are not great enough words to express my appreciation for all you have given me!

Congratulations - you must feel fantastic! You prove what I keep telling myself, which is that it doesn't matter as much how long it takes to get there as long as you do. Way to go!

86 pounds down, now for the next bit - fourth short term goal (back to 100 down):
