I've been so fixated on getting to 100 pounds lost, I didn't realize how cool it was for me to lose 88 pounds in seven months. Thanks, MyFitnessPal!

@Gretta, you and I have almost exactly the same SW and GW! Around where you're at right now is when I started to feel really great. Something about that "I've already lost half of what I want to" feeling is a real boost! Congrats and best of luck on the rest of the journey :) 

On a related/unrelated note, I'm always so happy to see your posts here on TT. You're so positive and give really thoughtful responses to people. Thanks for being here.

That's awesome! I've always liked hearing your progress, as your starting point was similar to mine, and I'll be getting sleeved as well. Love that you are kicking so much butt, it's inspiring :wub:

Thank you for such a great point - I too can get too focused on reach the goal weight that we may miss the important milestones along the way.  Congrats and love to keep watching the numbers going down!

Thanks, @CoTN! I'm not one of those super fast losers, so it really helps to celebrate things like having fewer than one hundred pounds to lose, being halfway to goal, or just celebrating every pound lost. Losing one hundred pounds and getting to ONEderland are awesome things I'm looking forward to, but other minigoals are worth celebrating too. :)
