I am sure there's a thread on this very topic, out there.....however, this goal was an important one, as well as an emotional one for me and I wanted my own thread on it. I don't remember the last time I weighed under 200 lbs, and finally this morning, my scale read 199.8 lbs. I know that .8 is there, but for me, seeing the 199, meant a lot. While I still have a little ways to go, (about 55 lbs), to reach my end goal, reaching ONEderland was a cornerstone for me. It's been just a little over 2 months since I've had my surgery, and not one day goes by without me telling myself that I should have done this much sooner! I'm no longer wearing "stretchy" pants....I'm now wearing jeans!!!!

PS. Don't mind my toes....I wasn't going to have a pedicure done until I reached ONEderland, so guess what? I'm getting my toes done this weekend!!!

Thank you for being part of this journey with me. I know we are all somewhat "strangers" to one another, but in our own way, we hold each other's hands through all of this. The good and the bad.

Virtual Hug to All! ♥

We could be twins in spirit, you and I! Same height, almost the same starting weight, and we have a close goal weight (mine is 145 lbs). You are so close to achieving ONEderland. One big sprint, and you will cross that line. It feels so good. I'm cheering you on, WLS twin!! ♥

Congratulations! Enjoy reaching your well deserved goal! I remember that well! I was also so excited that I was able to start wearing an XL rather than plus size clothes when I got down to 195.

How funny that you say that, Holly! I'm getting ready to go on vacation/trip, next week, and of course I had to go buy some new clothes and YES....I'm wearing XL now instead of XXL in Old Navy's shirts (I'm a fan of Old Navy). It's such a great feeling! Thank you for your kind words! ♥

I finally got to Onederland yesterday, after a weeks-long stall at 200. Feels fabulous, doesn't it? 😁

I hit Onederland without realising it a couple of weeks ago. 196 pounds and counting. Being metric, I had my own metric milestone a while back getting under 100kg for the first time in a good 20 years - now I'm well below and into the 80s, with 14kg to go until goal. Which sounds crazy to my ears, yet here I am. Super happy to reach this point in the journey. One more BMI number down and I'll finally be out of the obese category and into just "overweight".

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
