Today I hit Onderland

Just barely but I’m there. This is a term I learned from hanging out on various online forums. Onderland. That magic place when your weight starts with the number 1.

I have to say, it’s less exciting for me than for some others because I didn’t start that much above it, and only had to lose 30 lbs to get there, but it’s a nice, mini-milestone.

But here’s another way to look at it, and this does indeed excite me. Today, I have lost a third of the excess weight I need to lose. A third of the way there! Now that’s something to celebrate.

It’s also a good way to know that the surgery is working, or rather than I am working it. Once I came off the stall, I seem to have lost .4 lbs, .2 lbs, .6 lbs, but it’s still a wonderful downward trend, and I think I’ll take it!

That's so great :-)

I remember hitting the 1's before and thinking "never in the 200's again!!! Promise!!!"... haha. Good one! Of course I gained back and more! But it's a really good feeling knowing that it is highly likely to keep that promise with the sleeve. So just the thought of that is cause for celebration.

I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to get there myself, just keep bouncing with 2lbs. Good job, keep it up and keep posting, I love your posts.

Congrats! I loved hitting onderland. It wasn't far for me either, but I couldn't get there on my own so it was a huge achievement for me to finally see it. Onderland: I'm never leaving again!

Woohoo! Well done, you deserve to be successful.

Now for your next goal - banish the word "only" from your vocabulary!!!! You haven't lost "only" 30lbs - you lost 30lbs that ain't coming back. Here's to the next 30lbs :-))))))
