I won't miss panic when it comes to shoe shopping.

I won't miss feeling self-conscious when I eat healthy in front of other people (because some people begin to draw conclusions or ask questions) or when I eat unhealthy in front of other people like an occassional dessert when I am out.

I won't miss having to squish myself into a bathroom stall with a backpack - there isn't enough room for the both of us.

I won't miss the newly appearing stretch marks that mean I've gained yet more weight.

I won't miss the discomfort of stepping on the scale and hoping it hasn't gone up or seeing it at its high.
