I had to bring this thread up because I FINALLY MADE ONEDERLAND. I drop into it in 2007 for less than a month. My low was 196.2 on October 7 and 8 and then my undiagnosed SAD kicked in and I haven't been there since. Now to see how low I can go before winter and how I can prevent SAD from kicking in.

Agree with Micki Sue, you should write your very own Onederland, mini-goal and Milestone story. I have a good Onederland billboard I'll post on the rest of your story how you made it to the fabled place of ones.

I will start a new thread. I was so excited at breaking the barrier that I didn't actually go back and read it. I just remembered that I had read it. My story of reach Onederland is the same struggle that we all have so I didn't think that warranted a separate thread.

Ah, but you are too modest, JAnn.

There are so many people who never reach that goal. And many who have reached it before, and slid back, never to reach it again.

You backslid, and came back. That story is HUGE to somebody. Maybe someone who doesn't even post here, but lurks, fearful and ashamed of his or her body. We've all been there, too, haven't we?

Congrats! And to me too! I just reached it too in the last few weeks... am sitting at 197, losing ever so slowly but -- most importantly -- still losing.
