Is there such a thing as "240's LAND" ?



Recommended Posts

I am too far off from onederland but I reached 240 land. I weighed in at 248 this morning and it has been over 20 years since that has happened. I had a long stall but it is finally broken. I am a little over 3 months post-op and I am down about 67lbs. I feel like a different person. My next stop, the real onederland.

Congratulations to you!! It's exciting to see long-lost "front numbers" on the scale--I'm about to break into 220-land (yes, there is such a place!), which I haven't visited since just after grad school MANY years ago. Keep up the great work!!

YES!!! I think that is a big milestone. When you think about "weight limits" often times 250 is quite the barrier. Most rides, waterslides, etc. will post a weight limit warning "no one over 250", etc. So yes, you need to Celebrate that you are below the 250 mark!! Woo hoo!

Thank you for this post!!!:D

Sometimes it is hard for me to not be frustrated when you look at how much farther I have to go...

I mean some people are just getting sleeved at the weight I currently am or LESS.... It is tough when you start off at an extremely high weight..but like you, each 10 # drop is a milestone in my book!

Good Luck to you!!

Thanks for this post...I feel the same way. I started at 394...and I Celebrate every time second number on the scale changes (380's, 370's, 360's, ect...) I was so excited yesterday when I did my weekly weigh in and I was 329.9 (barely in the 320's.....but there!!!) Although I will Celebrate when i hit the 310's....my next big goal is to get under 300. Might sound strange to say "I can't wait until I'm 299". Realistically don't know if I'll ever see the infamous "onderland" but i'll settle for somewhere in the low "twonerland."

I just celebrated my 36th birthday and at first felt a little depressed with getting older...but then my awesome husband reminded me that with my weight loss my body is really getting younger and healthier. Sometimes we need those little reminders :)

Thank you for this post!!!:D

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
