That's great! I think #100 should be #1, though!

That's a great list

I have a feeling #25 will happen no matter what weight I am, altho maybe I"ll start spilling food on my pants instead, is that an improvement?

oh and #57 is for the guys AND girls, I swear my boobs are shrinking, and it's not a bad thing, they are going before my belly tho

Thanks for posting it, it made me smile this morning

Definitely some things to look forward to, and some things that are already sorting themselves out which is good!

My own personal version of 8 is to wear a wetsuit. My parents run a scuba diving school in Spain so I can learn to dive free if I want, but I've always been terrified of having to put a wetsuit on and burst out of it! My mini goal is that if I've lost 40lb by the time I go out there again at the end of June I'll give it a go. Fingers crossed!

Peachgirl - mine are shrinking before the belly, too. But, my belly used to stick out past them, even when they were bigger, so everything's shrinking. It's just not at the proportions I'd like, LOL!

YP1, that sounds great! I told Howie that my big reward is swimming with dolphins. I want to do that as a reward for maintaining my goal weight for a year once I get there.

Wow, swimming with dolphins would be so good, I'd love to do that some day. That would make me maintain! (Incidentally, my own maintenance thing is that I'm planning to go to Australia in 2008. I want to be thin when I do it, so hopefully if I can lose most of the weight this/next year, it will give me an incentive to keep it off until after the Aus trip!)

Considering we're in Ohio, unless I can phenagle Seaworld to let me swim with theirs, this will mean a trip to Florida or somewhere on the ocean. Australia looks like such a cool place to visit.

Australia is VERY cool, the best place in the universe (at this point, I best declare my bias for those who don't know me - I'm Australian but live in Britain)

Number 65 made me laugh as I thought that was only me.

Number 69 - I gave some clothes to charity this week, and had to throw out all the pants, as the body of them was fine, but between the thighs was paper thin. The only pairs they got were two enormous pairs from my fattest days, which I hardly ever wore as I lost the weight on my thighs fairly quickly.

Wow! About 30 of these apply to me. (I also printed them up as possible non-scale goals once I start losing weight after the baby comes.)

These were the biggies:
4. To buy clothes in a normal store and actually get clothes with some style to them that fit correctly (I can't wait to stop shopping in the "plus" size stores. Just not as fashionable as the regular stuff.)
10. To fit into an airline/theatre/bus/whatever seat without spilling over and without having to see "that look" from the person who has to sit beside you. I hate that look.
19. To be able to sit in any chair without worry of breakage
28. To have a bra fit comfortably and to be able to buy underwear at Victoria's Secret rather than at "Tubby the Underwear Guy" I would love to shop at VS (and I'm sure hubby wouldn't mind me spending money there either!)
29. To not have to worry about the weight limit of step stools, ladders, motorcyles, exercise equipment, etc.
48. To be able to get close to sink and not come away with a wet belly!
69. So that the cloth in the thigh area doesn't wear away long before the rest of the slacks do!
