I know that there are many posts out there for when people hit ONE-derland, and I'm so happy for them to reach that milestone.

But, for someone over 300 to reach TWO-derland (finally!) sure feels just as great!
I have a looooong way to go, and might never get to ONE-derland(I'd need surgery to get rid of excess skin to do that) , but for now I see a different starting number on my scale and I'm thrilled.

Yay me!

    Don't always assume you will need surgery. Lose weight the right way, slow and steady and as long as your are strength training, the skin will also tighten up over time (to an extent).

    TWO-rific! That's great. Congrats on your success so far. Worry about the skin issues and possiblity of surgery later, for now celebrate your accomplishment. Keep it up and we'll celebrate your next success with you! :)
  • Congrats!!! It's such an accomplishment!

    I started at 357 (before I joined MFP) and now at 309.4. I can't wait to be in TWO-derland with you!:happy:

    I started at 375lbs, currently at 260 - and yep, it's the greatest feeling when you see that 3 disappear forever!!!!!!!

    My next target is 250, but onederland is my ultimate! Not worried about being stick thin as I acknowledge that will never come, unless I can afford some radical surgery, but it's going in the right direction.

    Well done, and good luck on your continued journey, and also to anyone else in a similar situation!

    That's awesome!!! Congrats!!
  • WAY TO GO!!! I started at 306, and even though I only had to lose a few pounds to get into the 200s, it was still an amazing feeling. Now I'm at 218, so I'm closing in on One-derland and I'm excited all over again. Every journey begins with a single step and it sounds like you're heading in the right direction with the right attitude. Congrats, and here's to all your success!!
