1. Getting rid of my double chin
2. Getting rid of my round face
3. If you go to any department store and look in their clearance section the sizes they have the most of (in my experience) are 0-6. I would like to be in that range . Just for the bargain. You can call me cheap. I don't care.
4. I want to shop in the petite section. I am done shopping in the "women's section" AKA Fat woman area. Not only because I am going to be small but... never mind...I just want to be able to find my size there.
5. Using my hand to wave goodbye instead of my back arm fat.
6. Getting rid of my big thighs.
7. Feeling fit and not fat. It's such a bad feeling.
8. When I run I want to feel spritely. I can't really say that I do that yet but one day.
9. Having a fit tummy instead of a fat tummy!
10: Goodbye Fat Girl! I can't wait to go to the doctors and have him smile when he sees my weight and BMI instead of getting the lecture"You know that obesity causes blah blah blah"I mean , the doctor and I can pretty much recite this together.

I hear ya about the bathing suit Rose... I would def love to be able to wear a swimsuit and be comfortable so that I could start enjoying my time spent w/ my kids and stop worrying about what others around me are thinking. I also look forward to being able to fit in the seats at amusement parks so that I can enjoy that with my kids as well. emoticon

A fat girl problem that I'll be glad to get rid of is that I will be able to use a seat belt properly and not worry about if it will fit across me.

Health and good looks will be terrific to have, but the biggest thing I look forward to is the "Done Girl" confidence I'm starting to acquire. That song "Ive Got A New Attitude says it all and has become my own personal anthem.

You done girls covered them all but my main problem is not looking how I feel. I dont want to hide from the camera anymore as to avoid thinking "am I really that huge?" and then denying the fact that I am that heavy and give a little thought like "maybe I am just really unphotogenic" or "the camera really puts on the pounds".

Okay, this might be TMI...sorry...but when you sit in a plastic chair (and you are already constantly sweating) you leave that little sweat mark in the chair. I am SO embarrassed by it when it happens to me.

- Not having "lunch lady arms"
- Not having knee and foot pain (I just lost 15 lbs, and have noticed a huge improvement here)
- Shopping in thrift stores. I love the hunt for a bargain!
- Being comfortable on an airplane.
- Be able to bend, kneel, or sit on the floor
- Not being so sweaty!
- Not have my jeans dig into my belly when I sit, but then still gape in the back and show my a$$ crack.
- Wear a cute bra.
- Have my thinning hair grow back. I'm 90% convinced that years of eating garbage has malnourished me to the point of hair loss.

1. Pants that don't fit. By the time they are big enough to fit your butt, they are too long.
2. Shorts riding up.
3. Someone telling you are too pretty to be overweight. Geez, thanks LOL
4. Telling people that you are making changes when you have done this before.

I have to agree with the thigh rub I haven't worn a skirt or dress in years. I would also have to say wearing a swim suit. I have acted like I hate to swim for years to avoid wearing any type of swim suit to hide my weight.

Definitely the thigh rub and the chafing. If I dare wear a skirt I have to wear a thin pair of shorts underneath it to protect my inner thighs!!!

Oh, where to begin?

-Having to wear some sort of arm cover because finding dresses and tops with sleeps longer than a cap is near impossible.
-Not being able to wear a bathing suit. I have to wear long swim shorts and a tankini to even feel somewhat comfortable going out in public.
-Having lost weight and then gain it back again and now how much better I felt when I wasn't as heavy.
-Thigh rub. I have to wear shorts under my maxi skirts otherwise I will be a grumpy mess and won't be able to go anywhere.
-Varicose veins
-Stretch marks. I will never be able to get rid of them. Ever. Even if I lose weight I have to deal with these stupid stretch marks.
-Small bathroom stalls. Need I say more?
-Trying on three different shirts in the morning and just settling on the one that shows the least back fat.
-When you feel an elevator or whatever shake when you step on it.
-Pants shopping. If you have any hips/butt/thigh then you know how difficult this is.

I'm sure there are a lot more.

I am totally with you on the shirts with too small of sleeves thing. I mean, really, if you are fat all over, why do they assume your arms aren't? I just can't even picture the type of body shape that can fit those tops, though I suppose they exist.

1. Other than the fact that I have to shop for non-cute clothes, why do the shirts for plus sized woman all assume we all have size DD plus boobs? I will be so happy when I can shop in the regular clothing section and buy fitted shirts where the boob areas aren't hanging off of me.

2. When I lose my weight I be glad when I can go to an amusement park and don't have to be worried about squeezing into a roller coaster seat with my kids. Will I fit? Can I ride this? Or talk my husband into riding certain rides with the kids "insert excuse" just because I'm not sure if I will fit.

I love Yoga, it has saved my back, and I've taken classes for over 10 years now. (always beginner, and I have to modify some poses for knee, back, wrist, etc issues) We moved back to Az. about a year ago and I finally found a great instructor again a few weeks ago, so now I'm getting back in the groove. I prefer a class over home practice for motivation etc.

Early on, over 10 years ago, I almost didn't ever go to another class, because of a rude instructor at the Y. She came by my mat and said "I know your body is in its own way" blah blah blah. Yes I am an apple shape, and my stomach is my problem area. And yes, it IS in my way when I'm doing some poses. Thankfully she is the glaring exception~ most Yoga instructors are very kind.

I ALWAYS (and I peek so I know LOL) have the biggest stomach in every class. I go to regular, not plus size classes, so that's probably why. I'm so looking forward to reaching even 1/2 way towards my goal, so as to have more freedom in bending. I'm a senior and only 5'0" tall so that adds to the mix of things. So far I've lost 3" off my waist and going down!

Cellulite.

Ok I know slim people get it too - and I try not to let it bug me in the scheme of things but I don't like the fact that it will still be there however much I lose.

But hey, healthy is why I'm doing this!!!!

1) Super-expensive underwear and bras- even the ugly stuff costs more, let alone trying to find something that is relatively pretty or sexy

2) Still feeling unattractive even when I spend the extra money on the above

3) Sweating- even if I am only wearing the above

4) Not wanting my husband to see me only wearing the above, cuz I still feel ugly, I'm sweating, and I feel bad since it cost more than I wanted to spend... you get the idea :-)

Wow I wish I'd read this earlier!!

For me it's:

- The fat arm thing - why is it so hard to get tops with sleeves that reach your elbows to cover it? And why do they make tops with sleeves where the top part fits - but the sleeves are too tight?

- The double chin thing, I had the remaining fat lipo'd when I lost a lot of weight about 8 years ago - the chins grew back as the rest of me grew emoticon

The floral thing bugs the hell out of me too, it's like we should all be relegated to muumuus

All of my problems have already been mentioned, but warrant being mentioned again...

1) Jiggly arm wing/flap - My mom says it runs in our family and it'll just be there forever, even when I'm thinner. I hope she's wrong!
2) Thigh rub - When my thighs don't rub together anymore, I'll consider my weight loss journey a success!
3) Back pain - I have a lot of problems with my back, particularly when I'm trying to exercise. I can't wait to have stronger back and less to carry.

Reading this thread makes tears come to my eyes...first tears of feeling of relief to know I am not alone, second tears of grief as we really list all our losses troubles and grief from being the fat girl....man can I relate to this list here's a few I didn't see yet, maybe missed
1. Making self-deprecating joke regarding my weight because I can tell everyone else is thinking about it and it will just ease the tension if I am the one to acknowledge it and act like it is fine, when its not.
2. being anything other than totally proud and grateful for every aspect of my body, my life and who I am. Apart from the weight this is true, time to make it true of every area.

I relate to many others already posted here esp.
2. knee joint pain
3. Other seeing the weight and not me
4. jiggly arms
5. wearing clothes because they are cute not soley because they are slimming or do not draw attention to a problem area.
6. fitting into plane seats, theater seats,stadium seats better.

The thigh rub! I have to wear old lady style girdles under my skirts and dresses in the summer, but I have the "swee-swee" sound all year long from those, pantyhose and jeans!
My back fat is getting bigger and jiggles whenever I shake a bottle. My "muffin top" is way out of control and pushes my jeans down.

Not being able to walk through rows of desks that everyone else can walk through.

There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying. -Sarah Dessen

Missing spots on my thighs when I'm shaving, because I can't see all of them!
