For sure, I feel all the ladies who want to shop at "normal" stores and either not be limited to the plus-size section or a different store completely! We want to look cute and be on-trend too, ya know!

But besides that, I guess just the little things that thinner people might take for granted: crossing my legs, wear a skirt and not have my thighs chafe, not worrying about if I'll break a seat when I sit down, wondering if someone's treating me differently because I'm overweight, fitting into normal-width shoes, etc.

Ultimate fantasy? Probably being thought of as sexy because hell, I already KNOW I am!

Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Be a fruit loop in a world of cheerios.

It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice. Give it 12 weeks. Don't quit.

My "skinny fantasy" is to have my husband be able to offer up his jacket when I'm cold. Maybe even pick me up. He doesn't want me to get too thin though :)

My "Skinny" Fantasy involves walking around Chicago. One time about three years ago, my friends and I walked all over the city just hanging out. I slowed down the group many, many times over the day. It was summer so I got hot and started feeling sick (though that might have had more to do with not drinking enough water). I want to walk around Chicago without getting sick or slowing anyone down. And I want to sit outside with my friends at Starbucks and not be terrified of breaking those tiny wicker chairs they have.

I just went through reading everything on the last 4 pages, and I will definitely agree with ALL these "skinny Fantasies." It is so surprising to find one person who thinks "what would I look like in those skinny jeans," let alone everyone here!
My Skinny Fantasies:
- (my # 1) to go to the park and play with my kids without having to tell them I am tired
- where a skirt and be confident about it
- to be able to sit on my Boyfriend's lap and not him on mine
- to shop with my friends at the mall without having to check out the plus size store
- to believe it when i'm told I am beautiful, or sexy, or complimented in anyway
- to actually look into the mirror and say, "I did it. For myself, I accomplished my most challenging goal!"
- to not be depressed and start crying when I do look in the mirror now

I guess that is just a few. But they are the ones that mean the most to me.

“When someone tells me "no," it doesn't mean I can't do it, it simply means I can't do it with them.”

You guys I have been reading all night all of your skinny fantasies and I want all of those things as well.

I would say my skinny fantasy is to wake up one day and be able to walk with confidence and not have people look down on me like I'm a loser just because I'm fat. I want to stop hating myself and telling myself I'm worthless and that I don't deserve good things in my life. .

I want to do all the things "normal" people do, I want to fall in love, and I want to have my heart broken, I want to go on a date and I want to say things like "Yeah I made out with that person" or "Sorry, I'm taken". Can you believe I'm 21 and never been on a date, I really hate that.

I want to learn how to dance and not tell myself I can't just because I'm fat. I want to wear nice clothes and not think about whether they will hide my belly or not and I want to go to the beach. I haven't been to the beach in years!! I want to stop putting my life on hold just because I'm out of shape.

To feel comfortable dancing in front of people. I love dancing and I'm actually quite good at it--but my weight keeps me from showing off my moves.

The trick is learning how to watch where you're going AND keep your head up.

My biggest "skinny" fantasy is to no longer be the friend with the pretty face. I want to be the friend with the bangin body! Haha, and I want to be able to ride rollercoasters with my kids, and I want to actually feel confident with who I am and project that confidence on the world!

I've added something to my skinny fantasy. I want to be able to run and jump into my boyfriends arms and have him actually catch me like the girls in the movies.

I also want to be comfortable when he picks me up and not be afraid I'm going to hurt him.

I agree with pretty much everything said here, but here's a few of mine!

1) To not feel my arms and thighs drag against my body every time I walk.
2) I have a huge sex drive...I also have a huge self-confidence problem. I don't want to make my boyfriend question our relationship.
3) To fit back into my size 2 A&F jeans!
4) To be able to really MEAN it when I say that I won't buy $200 pair of jeans. They are too expensive (instead of they don't make those in my size).
4) To have beautiful engagement photos...
5) That will pale in comparison to my wedding photos!
6) To have my right hand ring fit again. I'm too fat to wear it now and it would cost $50 to size it.
7) So the arthritis in my knees won't hurt so bad. (I'm only 27)
8) Like a lot of other people said, I want my to-be husband to be able to carry me over the threshold!

I have a lot of goals:
* To feel comfortable trying to conceive a baby. I have heard horror stories about obese women trying to give birth naturally. (the way I would prefer) And I really want a baby!!
* To fit comfortably in an airplane seat. Last time I flew (35lbs ago) my hips were too big and I was SO thankful my husband and I got seats together so I could lift the armrest. I might not be that lucky next time.
* Speaking of my DH, I would love it if he could pick me up. I don't know if he can lift more than 200 pounds...
* I'd like to at least look related to my sister. (I'm almost 3 times her size right now)
* To be able to buy something besides perfume at Victoria Secret!
* To fit into the only dress I kept from when I was the right size.

Of course I'd love to walk into a normal shop and buy normal clothes.
But my main "skinny" fantasy is to go out for the night and have the guys look at me cos I'm hot - not cause they can't believe that girls as fat as me are allowed out.
I'd like to be admired again!

To be able to run. I used to run track in 5th grade and reallly loved it.

Also to be able to wear cute clothes. I never have been able to. Even growing up as a kid, it seemed like I was too young to wear cute clothes and by the time I was interested in them, I was too big to.

To be able to travel to places like Ireland, Scotland, England, Italy...to be comfortable in airplane seats. I have never been on a plane because of my weight.

To be able to go places like the zoo, amusement parks and actually enjoy them.

I want to be able to walk into any store and buy normal clothes. Seeing something that I think is really cute and reminding myself that it isn't made in my size, is a horrible feeling. And even if they DID make it in my size, it would look horrible on me.

Also, being able to wear a sleeveless shirt would be amazing, but I have huge upper arms.

My skinny fantasy would be to walk into my 10 year reunion and shock the pants off the boys I went to highchool with and make the girls speechless! Now, I have a hubby and I am completely happy with him, but to make heads turn! heck yes. Also, running a marathon would do it for me, and look cute while doing it! No flubber bouncing everywhere! haha

This may not be a typical "skinny fantasy" but I want to be that girl that could kick someone's a$$ if needed. I want to be able to chase, jump, climb and dodge.
But....being able to wear cute clothes from everywhere is awesome too.

My skinny fantasy...

I would love to walk down the stree not feeling like everyone is staring at me because I'm fat.

I would love to be able to cosplay (dressing up as your favorite anime/video game/fictional characters)

I would love to buy something off the rack, and not have to go to the meager plus size section and wear something with huge ugly flowers on it.

I want to ride amusement park rides again

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
