I can relate to almost everything here - some things I didn't even really think about!
I won't miss:
1. running into things and people. As I got bigger, walking into a crowd/crowded area became increasingly difficult.

2. having people snicker at me as I walk by. or when kids stop in their tracks and just look at me. ughh kids. they're brutally honest as they are.

3. having my mom pin everything on my weight.

4. worrying about chairs.

5. looking like a blob when they put the hairdressing bib on me at the salon. the size of the neck makes the bib really tight and emphasizes my double chin.

Wow what a topic!
I so relate to so many of these!

1. Not even thinking about going to a amusement park!

2. My flippin panties rolling down!

3. Tugging and pulling at my clothes!

4. Never wearing skirts due to the fire of my thighs rubbing.

5. Not wanting to date because I don't want anyone to see me naked unless they are drunk and it's dark LOL!

6. Trying to pull my pants up high enough to smooth out my rolls

7. My developing neck rolls starting to stick together.

8. Being tired & feeling lazy

9. Always worrying about my fat rolls showing

10. Missing out on so many little & big things in life

~Thai~

Everyday is a chance to build momentum or slack.
Everyday we must choose to make the right choice!


1 day_1 step_1 meal_1 workout at a time I WILL DO THIS!

You know that character in Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason, who Bridget said talking with her is like being constantly stung by an enormous jellyfish? Well, I've been blessed with 3 such jellies, all a generation older than me, and I grew up chubby. So here's 5 things I am determined not to miss:

1. I won't miss having to decide if I should do something I enjoy (swimming, skating, dancing etc) in public, because of fear of the resulting discussion of how such action made my boobs/butt move.

2. I won't miss the "you have such a pretty face..." speech

3. I won't miss having to work out a mental strategy for surviving social events by avoiding: cameras; looking like I am not eating; looking like I am eating and not feeling guilty about it; outfits that look like I'm someone's grandmother, but which still avoid flaunting trouble spots; having to stay for long because inevitably the jellies will come around to me (and the more you try to shake off jellies, the more burned you get).

4. I won't miss that mirror betrayal - when you look in the mirror and think "OK, I look alright," then get the photos back from the event you went to and see that you look HUGE, even bigger than you did in your mirror. I find myself wondering, "Did they see what I saw in the mirror or what I saw in the photos?"

5. I won't miss having (I'm going to assume) well-meaning people diagnose my every health problem as weight-related, even if it's just allergies or a toothache.

I will not miss my size 24 jeans (but thanks Old Navy for carrying them).

I will not miss that when we order t-shirts for special events at work, I'm always the only one to order 3X. "Who had the 3X? Oh, yeah, Amanda, here's your shirt!"

I will not miss being extremely embarrassed when I do photo sessions with clients because I'm completely out of breath when walking up a very slight hill (I'm a photographer on the side).

I will not miss the fact that putting on my socks and shoes is considered exercise to me.

I will not miss that I can't wear cute shoes because the tops of my feet look like pillows.

I will not miss my kankles (no matter how much water I drink, they just won't go away).

I will not miss the fact that my superiors at work don't take me seriously, bypass my opinions, and literally treat me differently than my co-workers.

I will not miss being afraid to meet my husband's friends. My husband and ALL of his friends are really good looking (and so are their wives) and I always come up with excuses not to go out with them.

I will not miss my daughter's friends at school telling her "Your mom is fat!"

I won't miss...

...having to shop for clothing that ends with a letter instead of a number.

...having to special order bras in because my size isn't carried locally

...standing or sitting in the grass during my nephews sports events because I exceed the weight limit of a lawn chair.

...chub rub. My thighs don't need to be that close!

...avoiding shorts because above mentioned thighs tend to cause them to ride up.

...my butt. Its huge. I hope I get to keep my curves when I slim down, because I like them, but its excessive.

...eating a treat once in awhile and wondering if I'm being judged by the strangers around me.

...plus sized women's clothing. Do the designers even thing we're people with feelings? Its bad enough we're aware of our weight, do they have to make things worse by printing in huge, obnoxiously colored florals and neon animal prints?

I'm sure I'll have more to add later!

He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
~ Tad Williams, The Dragonbone Chair (1988).

I won't miss:

PCOS and all of the *wonderful* side effects that go with it (beards don't belong on women).

Not being able to show off my amazing sense of style because all of the clothes I want to wear are too small for me.

Feeling too awkward to go into a gym because apparently the gym is only for skinny people, not people who want to get that way.

"It is never too late to be what you might have been." -George Elliot

Goals:

Buy a new book for every 10 lbs. lost!

280 - Start
252 - mani/pedi and new hair cut
226 - new armchair for reading nook
204 - full spa day
183 - go on vacation from my bucket list
165 - full makeover
150 - a whole new wardrobe!

I gotta add mine. I think it would feel GREAT.

I WILL NOT MISS closing my eyes every time I walk by a mirror.

I WILL NOT MISS my irregular, eternal periods

I WILL NOT MISS seeing only the latter half of my thighs when I sit down due to Brutus (my gut)

I WILL NOT MISS hiding what I look like only to my pretty friends, most of whom I have known for 10 years.

I WILL NOT MISS Lane Bryant. Eff yew, Bryant!

I WILL NOT MISS shopping online for all of my clothes after a day of looking tortured in Forever 21 while my small friends shop and leave me awkwardly outside of the dressing room giving all of the waifs the 'Stink Eye'.

I WILL NOT MISS knee pain, back pain, rib pain.

I WILL NOT MISS depression and low self image.

I WILL NOT MISS the sun. When I lose weight. Heh.

I WILL NOT MISS swollen calves, new stretch marks and monster boobs.

I WILL NOT MISS the slight funk under rolls, even when I shower once a day.


Sorry if my list squicked anyone. I know I can be graphic!

I won't miss my limited wardrobe (limited because of the small amount of clothing that covers everything I need it to and limited because I refuse to spend that much money on clothes in this size).

I won't miss having to size up walkways, spaces behind other chairs in conference rooms and the like and hoping I'll fit through without too much squishing.

I won't miss feeling like I need something in front of me when I sit down so people can't see the rolls on my stomach and width of my thighs.

And so, so much more....

I wont miss...

1)My mother saying "Baby you would look so beautiful IF you just lost a few pounds"

2) Sizing up a piece of furniture and wondering if it will take my weight or if I should just sit down and risk it.

3)Being the slowest walker when I'm out with my friends.

4)Spending hours searching for suitable formal cloths to wear to a work party, only to spend the entire night watching my male co-workers ignore me and compliment the skinny chick with a bad attitude that lurks in the corner.

Reading everyones post brought me to tears... its so nice to know that there are so many people who feel exactly the same as I do.

The number 1 thing I will not miss about being obese is not being able to get pregnant... its the main motivation behind every jumping jack and every bite of salad I eat.

Looking pregnant when I lean back in a chair.

Having people automatically assume I'm trying to lose weight just because I order a salad.

Being ridiculously out of breath when I ride a bike.

Fearing that my knees will start hurting when I jog.

Being uncomfortable in small seats.

My face looking HUGE in pictures taken from a bad angle.

My "apron" of a stomach.

Don't wish for it, work for it!

I've quit many diets in the past, but this is a lifestyle and you can't quit life.

I won't miss:

* The wings under my arms
* The sadness I feel when I decide to actually look in the mirror
* The contempt on my mother's face when I eat anything
* My entire family acknowledging me as the "fat one"
* My size 18 jeans
* My overly abundant "ladies" and the expensive bras

OMG SO TRUE!!! I completly didn't think about that. I almost want to wear shorts under my workout pants tucked under my stomach to prevent it!!!

HAPPINESS IS NOTHING MORE THAN GOOD HEALTH AND A BAD MEMORY.

Here are mine... in traditional Top 10 List formatting!

10. Shoulder pain from massive, bowling ball sized girl bazookas.

9. That embarrassing moment during exercise where you're going really hard and you hear/feel something weird and realize its your STOMACH FLAP slapping against your thighs. Ugh. MORTIFYING.

8. Buying new running shoes/running paraphernalia and having the store clerk look at me like I'm crazy. Hey buddy- you put on a 100 lb backpack and go run 5K THEN you judge me!

7. Having to deal with the fact that the word for "Plus Size" in German is "Übergröße." Literally, "Overly Large". You miss those nice euphemisms for fat when you're in Germany.

6. Jell-o. I hate Jell-o. It is disgusting and is not a substance meant for consumption by human beings. However, every friendly family member and friend will kindly provide Jell-o based desserts because they are low in calories. *shudder*

5. Not having to wonder "How many calories does this German beer even HAVE?"

4. Having to wear special undergarments every time I wear skirts because I flatly refuse to experience the 9th level of Hellacious thigh chaffing I would otherwise.

3. Hiding at the back of family photos so at least my stomach won't be visible.

2. Thinking of my body type as "Marshmallow on toothpicks with really nice hair."

1. Being afraid a "Kevin Smith" is going to happen to me every time I get on a plane! (And I fly a LOT.)

Having to help the beautician wax my legs by holding my thigh skin tight for her.

Excess body hair and skin pigment due to weight-related hormone issues. Beard and tash is not a good look on me, and maintenance is painful/timeconsuming, and forgetting maintenance is worse.

*Never feeling like I look good in anything
*Getting winded going up the stairs to my apartment
*Having heat rash and/or chafing between my thighs and under my breasts
*Having a hard time shaving

I hate dealing with the ramifications of being morbidly obese. Foot/back pain, intertrigo infections, having trouble sitting in chairs/booths, and the anxiety of purchasing and eating food in public. I hate how painful it is to wear a bra (especially how much money I had to shell out in order to find one that's comfortable), and finding youthful clothing that fits.

But most of all: I hate how people interact with me now and treat me differently as an extremely overweight person.

The number one thing I won't miss about being obese is missing out on life!
So many times have I limited myself because of my size. Too often have I said:
"No I can't go on that roller coaster" (what if they make me get off because of my size)
"No I can't go swimming" (for fear of being in a swimsuit in front of people I don't know)
"No I cant act silly with my kids" (because what if I get out of breath because I am out of shape)
and the list gors on and on!
I am learning that I can't let my weight determine the type of life and attitude that I have!

This is a really good question to think about! When I reach my goal weight, these are the things I won't miss about being obese:

-Having to shop at specialty stores or order online to find my size

-Not being able to work as hard as I want at the gym

-Dreading social functions such as weddings and get togethers because I can't find a thing to wear

-Having people criticize what I am eating because I am "big"

-People telling me I would be "so pretty" if I'd lose the weight

-Feeling inferior to others when it comes to dating/being in a relationship

I love this thread. I'm pretty sure these will all be repeats but wanted to give it a shot
I won't miss not being able to wear long skirts without shorts underneath because my legs rub together to a painful degree

I won't miss knowing that the only reason a guy doesn't ask me out is because I'm obese

I won't miss cramming myself into the desks in school and knowing I look squeezed in

I won't miss thinking about how gross my body must look to other people

I won't miss avoiding walking places with people because I'm embarrassed to get so winded

One thing I hope I always hold onto is the humility that comes with being in these situations. I hope I'm not an uppity skinny person. :)

I won't miss crying when I looked at photos of myself 200 pounds smaller from just 3 years ago.

I won't miss having a panic attack when I go someplace because I'm afraid I won't be able to fit into the chair.

I won't miss seeing the mixed feelings of sympathy and sadness in my husbands eyes when I do something as small as walk up the steps.

I won't miss having too sit back and watch the horses go unridden by me and my DD asking why I can't get on.

What I wont miss is having to suck in my stomach to get a seat belt to buckle.Having all the sag in places I'm not spouse to sag.Having my 6 year old cousin call me (The fat one.)when he talks to me in front of strangers.He calls my sister heather and calls me the fat one.Or being made fun of by my family.

Them are just a few things I wont miss.And the clothes I wont have to buy a pair of xxl pants just to get them over m stomach.Or have to keep buy just my size clothes or wear only sweats.

6 pages later and i agree with EVERYTHING!!

i know i will not miss being afraid of army family days! this last one i was AFRAID to get on a TANK! a tank! i was afraid i WOULD BREAK IT!!

i will not miss my wii fit going "oh!" when i step on it!

i will not miss it taking 3 to 4 weeks to get clothes b/c theres no where to buy clothes in my size in the whole COUNTRY! (south korea)

i will not miss being the biggest girl at the bar

i will not miss being embarrassed to meet friends i've met online, or the men DH works with.

i will not miss not eating in front of people, even when they are at my house, and then feeling like a cow for being hungry later, and wanting to eat... like right now. haven't eaten dinner yet (cause we were at a BBQ) and i want to eat, but know i should work out, but don't want DH to walk in and i'm eating, or see me working out...

i WILL NOT MISS going to the dress makers to get a new dress made, and just KNOWING they are saying stuff bad... esp. when the *tisk* or gasp.

having the guy at the DMV read my weight, and go "really... oh wow." and then tell me the best mountain to go hiking at EVERY WEEKEND.

finding the hours the "bigger" check stand worker works at the store, so i don't get looked at funny when i get my food rang up...even when there isn't anything "sweet" or what not.
