S/C/G: 260/see ticker /175

Height: 5 10 ( I hate being taller than all the cute guys!!!)

Default I did it!

Finally, after 13 years of hoping and dreaming, useless diets and lots of hunger, dissapointment and tears, I am in ONEDERLAND!

As of this morning, I am officially 199 pounds. It almost doesn't feel real. When the scale flashed at me, I got on and off at least a dozen times and moved the scale all over the floor to be sure. I even had my daughter get on th make sure there wasn't a problem with the battery. Everything checked out ok and that 199 kept flashing at me!

I have all of you and your support to thank. Your positive thoughts through the rough spots and your cheerful dispostions got me through so much. So thank you all and I hope to see you all here in onederland too! The view is magnificant!

Welcome to onderland! Please make yourself at home and stay forever! Congatulation! I can remember when I first saw 199 on the scale I was so emotional I cried! It was hard to tell anyone for me because I didnt feel like there was anyone other than my mother who would truely appreciate what it ment to me.
