I thought I would be able to slip silently into "Onederland", but a few of you have called me out and by request, I will make the official post.
I know some of you are scratching your head wondering since when does Amy want to do anything silently? You are right. But for some strange reason, seeing 199 on the scale wasn't as exciting for me as I thought it would be.
It may be because I don't like the term onederland. Possibly because it is over used? For whatever reason, it gives me a rash and makes me furrow my brow.
It may be because there really isn't much difference from 200 to 199.
I don't know! I was just telling Jenny that 199 has not been my highlight of my weight loss journey. It is CERTAINLY the lowest I can remember weighing since probably 7th grade...nearly 18 years ago. It is amazing and I am grateful and I am not poo pooing it because I want to weigh less (I mean I do, but I am happy with my weight loss so far). There were no tears of joy like when I slipped on my size 16's. There was just a feeling of peace, a moment of thanks to the Gods, and then off to the shower!
I will not lie. I was kinda waiting for 197 to show up so I could do a post for both this milestone and for 130 pounds down. But Amy was naughty yesterday and ate cheetos, 2 candy bars, chips, etc...so my scale was holding at 198 today.
hahah...Do you see the irony of me not throwing a party when I hit 199? This from the girl who posted pictures of herself throwing a tantrum because my band friends were living in a new zip code (00199...very posh)?
I am a nut job.
But a nut job whose weight no longer starts with a 3. Or a 2!
