Hey, as I have ticked off the milestones in my journey on Spark People, the success has triggered off all sorts of struggles with fear and shame from the past "failures" at weight loss! You really plowed through your "weird" reaction to hitting minus-50 with great awareness. You keep Sparking!
You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

You're doing great! 50 pounds is a huge accomplishment! Pat yourself on the back! Can you buy yourself some kind of reward to celebrate? A cute new outfit??? Go on, you deserve it!
Congratulations! So fantastic that you've hit that goal.

Maybe you were just overwhelmed... The best thing is that you expressed your feeling no matter what it was Congratulations for your accomplishment!

Heaven only knows why you were feeling frustrated; emotions can be really wonky things, huh?! I'm very glad that you are now relishing in your success, because you deserve to! What an awesome job you've done!!

Unbelievable! Way to go, CONGRATULATIONS from Finland!
When I started with Sparkpeople, I thought losing my first 50 would feel awesome. Why did I cry in frustration all morning last Saturday when I met that goal? I don't know! But since then, my chin has lifted, I've set my next big goal (getting below obese bmi), and shouted my success to the mountaintops. Gosh, I am starting to feel awesome AND empowered!
