Default I finally reached goal!

I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 149 one pound below my goal. It's taken a year and a half to get here, and I still feel that I could lose a little more. My husband thinks I should stay the weight I'm at. I think I'll just keep doing what I've been doing and let my body decide. I want to thank all of the wonderful maintainers here. I've read your stories many times and your posts have been so helpful to me. I had been overweight for more than 20 years. I didn't think I would ever be able to get the weight off. When my health started to go I knew I didn't have a choice. I'm so thankful for all of you who show that it is possible to lose a large amount of weight and keep it off.

Oh my goodness. This is just WONDERFUL. I know how hard you've worked for this and it just gets me all teary thinking of you reaching your your goal. After 20 + years (same time frame as me). It's just the most awesome-est (no, I'm not a teenager ) thing in the world. It makes me so happy to know that another person is experiencing this incredible joy.

What a wonderful asset you and your thought out and intelligent posts will be to this forum.

Congratulations on a job very well done!
