Default Those that have reached your goal ?

Was it hard for you to believe you were either so close or that you finally arrived?

I'm 18 lbs from my goal and its hard to believe I'm so close. when I first knew I had 48 lbs to lose, it felt like an impossible mission. Now I can't believe how close I am to my goal. I keep thinking something will mess things up. My husband and I messed up the other day, so now I'm worried that I might have gotten pregnant, which will delay the whole process but is still a welcomed event none-the-less. I'm back in my skinnier jeans, just in time for the colder days ahead.

Yes ! I was actually surprised the day I stepped on the scale and saw that I was at goal. It seemed like the last 10 pounds were very stubborn but I persisted and finally saw success. If you are pregnant, congratulations and remember pregnancy will be so much easier and healthier for you if you are not overweight to start with.

It did feel really weird at first. But it just takes some time to get used to

It felt weird to me, too. I'm mostly used to it now.

I've been my weight for 2 years and I don't recognize myself. Life does feel strange weighing 150 lbs less than I used to. I'm not sure if it'll ever feel 'normal'.

It doesn't seem hard to me to believe. I do not have a full-length mirror anywhere in my home. Now and again I will catch a glimpse of myself somewhere and be surprised--wow..is that really me??? I also love feeling my kids hands wrapped around me and overlapping..it feels really great.

I watch "I lost it" practically every day for motivation. I always wonder about those that lost 50+ lbs if they feel like another person when they look at old pictures of themselves.
I haven't seen 130 in 8 yrs. all my dreams are of me at that weight. Then I would wake up and feel sad. But yeah at this point, I can't believe I'm almost there again. its like a dream.

Having just reached my goal yesterday, I can say that yeah, I still can't believe it. I mean, I've watched the number on the scale go down for months, but I'm actually at goal! Wow! I still don't see myself as 'skinny' or 'thin' but I'm sure that my brain will catch up eventually and stop seeing myself as fat.

I'm getting pretty close to my goal, too and it's unbelievable. I just need to keep with this and not just be happy with where I currently am. Because, where I am now is a LOT LOT better than where I was! I need to keep pushing to reach my goal.

Every time I have reached my goal, I lower it down. LOL Originally my first goal was 175, then 158, and now 143. I will not move it again, and I have just a couple pounds to get there, and yes, I'm freaking out. I've never successfully maintained weight, but as it is, I'm pretty good at losing and gaining it. I'm scared to death at what reaching this ultimate goal will mean to me. My life is really weird right now.

It's still really hard for me to believe and I've been maintaining for a year now!

It's a relief to know I'm not the only one who doesn't recognize herself in the mirror as well.
