Default "Onederland" ring

Okay so I am still a couple of months out, but I've been thinking that once I hit onederland, I am going to purchase a ring to remind myself of how far I've come (I will be down almost 70 lbs at that point).

I'm going to get a ring that has a stamped message on it, but I am trying to think of some ideas of what it could say in the message- it would have to be pretty short. Anyone have any ideas? What would your ring say?

Also I am almost out of this fine club since I am nearing my 'less than 100 lbs to goal' mark!! :-D

I haven't really though about something like this, but what a wonderful way to mark an achievement. I think if I was going to put something on a ring to mark the occasion, it might say "Worth it" or "WIP" or "Brilliant" or even just "Onederland" Or "Onederland, better than Never, Never land" or just a smiley face that only I know why it is smiling. Have fun! or "1-derland", haha, I can't stop! "Land of 1-der", get me out of here! lol "better than b-4" or one I see on the boards here quite a bit "KUTGW!"

Great Idea! I think I might copy you and get a ring if you don't mind. I'm 19 pounds away from Onederland.

And, I think on my ring I'll just get "Onederland" engraved on a plain silver ring.

Then, when I get to my goal weight (108, I know it says 140 but that's just my BIG milestone of getting to "Ideal Range") I'll get a ring that says "108". I've already got 108 tattooed on my foot from 10 years ago so I gotta make it to that weight eventually or my foot will LIE! haha

I don't mean to cheapen your idea, but I didn't have money for a ring and wanted to get something BEFORE I hit 199 so it will be ready to wear when I get there.

So, I got an engraved charm instead. Okay, I know this is gonna sound kinda weird, but the cheapest I could find was going to a pet store and getting a heart shaped chrome cat tag engraved (to put on a bracelet). I got the smallest size and it only cost me $12.99 total. Because I got the chrome (only 1 dollar more), it looks like a regular bracelet charm.

Just an idea for those who can't afford a ring, although a ring would be REALLY lovely. (I'm saving up for a ring for my ultimate goal weight, but I have lots of time to save up for that)
