ONDERLAND!!!! and NSV's



Recommended Posts

FINALLY! Onederland! I can't remember the last time I didn't see a "2" as the first number on the scale. Seeing the "1" this weekend was just surreal. I think I must have stepped on and off the scale at least 10 times. What a motivator! I feel like I've accomplished the impossible and now ANYTHING is possible!! ~40 to go (I'd like to hit 50 just to have some wiggle room).

For those who might be struggling after the first couple of months - Months 1-3 were EASY - weight just fell off. Month 4+, slowed A LOT (as in less than 8 a month) - Being able to eat pretty much anything I wanted without having an upset stomach didn't help. I was hoping to be under 200 by the end of December. Stalled (much of it my fault for choices I made, and simply my body catching up), got frustrated, felt sorry for myself, etc...and at times even wondered if it was possible or if I was just going to stop there with my weight loss. Booked a vacation and decided that I WOULD be under 200 before I left (next Sunday - nothing like cutting it close!). Got back on plan, made better choices, and quit feeling sorry for myself and WOO HOO - Major goal #1 accomplished. If you're struggling, hang in there, refocus, know you aren't alone in this journey and make up your mind that you CAN do this.

NSV's this week - I didn't see the "OMG, PLEASE let this fat lady be seated ANYWHERE but beside ME on a plane" look. People actually look me in the eye rather than past me. Servers @ restaurants are concerned that the food they served me wasn't good because I didn't eat much. I got more work accomplished onsite because I didn't need a lunch break (quick Protein Bar and I was good to go). I could go to ANY store and buy some cheap clothes for vacation - Can't wait to rock that bathing suit coverup in Hawaii next week!

Congrats, and have a great vacation!

I still find it surreal that the first number in my weight is a 1. I catch myself sometimes starting to enter 2 before I remember that I'm in the 100s.

That is great!! I also remember (not that long ago), when I hit the 1's I was exactly 199, but it felt so good not to see the 2's anymore. It is such a great accomplishment. Have fun on your vaca.

HAHA! Hard to do more than one island these days - SO MANY quarantine rules. This trip will be to Oahu since the hubs has never been there, plus they have the most things open. And not quite ready to rock the suit solo yet, but... I definitely intend on rocking the shorts and t-shirts and get the heck out of this cold weather!!

thank you all for the kind comments.
