Default Hello Onederland!

My first major scale victory today: There was no "2" at the front of the number. It said 199.6! I got off and back on three times to make sure it wasn't a cruel mistake, but it was the same each time.

Still have a long ways to go to reach Goal, but this was a tremendous milestone, as I have not been under 200 since about 1998.

Congrats!! It's a good feeling eh?! Definitely a reason to keep going, cause it's awesome to see the scale dropping with a 1 in front! I remember hitting Onederland almost 3 months ago and never looked back! So good for you!!

Was doing some preparation for my move this afternoon and came across a white leather biker jacket with fringed sleeves I'd bought on eBay ages ago. It never fit, but it was so gorgeous I'd held onto it "in case I ever lose the weight" and it had been a steal besides- like 10 or 15 dollars for a Wilson jacket. Well- it fits today! (Although at 94 degrees, it's a bit too hot to wear right now.) In a few months, I will be rocking this awesome jacket- and will have lost enough weight that even be able to wear a sweater under it.

Yesterday the scale decided to be mean and went back to 200, but it's 199.4 today. What a rush!

To reward myself, I spent a few bucks and went to the local rec center for a few hours in their pool and hot tub. It's strange not using food as a reward like I've always done.
