Onederland - that should be in big block italicized letters. For those of us that have been out of the 'ones' and into the 'twos', 'threes', 'fours', etc., that onederland goal is something that we all look forward to, even though at times
it may seem unattainable.
At 272, I didn't think much of getting into the 100s. I had tried so many diets and lost some and then regained some (lots of) pounds, over and over. Last summer, at 272, losing even 10 lbs, I knew I would start to feel better. My first BIG milestone goal was to get to 250. After that it was 225, and then 210. I was moving towards each goalpost in 10 lb increments because I knew if I looked at the big picture it would seem daunting and I would get discouraged. When I get discouraged, I eat. Didn't want that!
However, I am now, at last weigh in, 208 (will be getting weighed again
tomorrow). I am definitely NOW thinking of Onderland!! It is so close, that I can taste it, and it tastes better than any hot fudge sundae. It will probably take me most of September to be below 200, but I am really focusing on
that milestone at the moment. I will still have 40 - 50 lbs to lose once I am
there, but in my mind, for me anyway, it will feel like I am in the home stretch.
