Things I want to be able to do one day.

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

One of my friends from the team 300+ posted a bulletin on this idea and I loved it so I decided I would write my list here and I wrote many of them on her bulletin too before I added them here on my blog.
This is goals I will one way or another reach some day and know through the help of SP I can reach them all.
When I reach a goal I will come back to my blog and I will write the word check beside it so that you all can see my success and so I can see it to.
I can't wait to start checking things off.

*These are in no certain order by the way*

Things I want to be able to do one day.

Put my shoes on without getting winded

Paint my toe nails instead of making excuses to get my mom to do it.

I want to pass a mirror and not worry about looking to see if my stomach is covered by my shirt.

I want to be able to know that my weight is not the cause of my husband and I not having a child

I want to take a bath and be able to have water cover me without it overflowing.

I want to hike with my husband and dogs and not have to take breaks.

I want to go out to eat and fit in the booth

I want to buy a swim suit with no skirt

I want to be able to buy sandals and not worry if my feet are to chubby to fit in them.

I want to walk stairs and be able to finish without pain or out of breath ( emoticon check, I now walk stairs as part of my exercise and I can breath as long as it's no more than 50 at once! *2-10-09* emoticon )

I want to be able to play in the yard with my dogs and my God Son and actually allow them to have fun and enjoy it myself too while I play.

I want to get down on the floor and get back up no problem.

I want to go to the movies with no worries about the seat size.

I want know what it feels like for my husband to wrap his arms around me and not just half way. ( emoticon My husband gave me a big hud and kiss this morning and wrapped his arms all the way around me and clasped his hands! It felt great!!! *2-10-09* emoticon )

I want to go somewhere in a different car and not worry about the seat belt fitting.

I want to hold a child in my lap and not worry if there is room because my stomach lays in my lap too.

I want know what it's like to buy clothes in any store I choose.

I want to ride a bike again.

I want to be able to play softball in the summer with friends.

I want to drive my husbands van and not have the steering wheel rub my stomach raw. ( emoticon I drove my husbands van and I could actually see air between me and the steering Wheel!!! *2-08-09* emoticon )

I want to clean house without taking a break because my feet or back hurt or because I am out of breath and sweaty.

I want to know what it feels like to not be the outcast at my husbands family functions.

Sorry if this one embarrasses you all but I want to be able to make love to my husband and be able to enjoy it instead of not being able to breath or being uncomfortable because my body fat is in the way of things.

I want to know what healthy and thin (not skinny) feels like.

I want to be able to have the choice of designer clothes even if I don't want to but them.

I want to touch my toes and not hurt myself or be out of breath dong so.

I want to get off of my Blood Pressure medication or at least get it lowered.

I want to know what if feels like to buy something that claims it is "One Size fits all".

I want to jog ten minutes and not be so winded I feel sick.

I want feel comfortable in a pair of shorts instead of capris.

I want to be able to stand and walk on my feet for more than two hours and not have them killing me.

I want to look straight down and see my toes again not my stomach.

I want to shave my legs and it not be a exercise.

I want to sit in a lawn chair and not worry about the fact that I am over the weight limit it says it can hold.

I want to tuck my shirt in and like the way it looks on me.

I want to have some one explain the size of a person to me or the size of a item and not use me as part of the example. I don't know why people do that, don't they know it's hurtful? ( ex. "My God you should of seen him or her she was even bigger than you")

I want to be able to slide down a slide with my God son or a friends child or my nephews and not have to worry about if I get stuck on the slide.

I want to cross my legs and be comfortable.

I want to sit in a lower sitting seat and be able to get out on my own with out it being awkward.

I want to find the real me that's trapped deep inside this body.

    Tina I loved the blog. While I was reading it I was mentally checking off things that I can now do (70 lbs gone). I know you can do this and you will. Some days I know you fight with yourself but you put yourself back up on the track and keep going. That's what is so important for us to remember. Keep doing it! We can do this together! Before long you will start making those checks. Tina we love you sweetie. You are an inspiration to all.
    Love you, Susie

Reading this, I was able to relate to a lot of them and then I started realizing the things I can do now 27 pounds down that I couldn't before and I'm appreciating it much more.....don't forget to do that! Recognize and appreciate any progress you've made throughout this adventure!
