Thumbs down What You WON"T miss revisited...

Hey everyone!

Before the server got wiped out we were naming all the things that we won't miss about our extra weight. In case any of you wanted to add, or share I thought it would be a cool idea to start it up again..

In addition I DID write down all the things that I wouldn't miss about my extra weight. I put the list in a folder in my desk at work (it's in there with my food journal and my "hunger scale" which helps me decide how hungry I am and if I should really be eating...) so every time I think "this weight loss thing isn't working", I whip it out and think about all the things I want to get rid of in my life. Things like:

-muffin tops
-feeling masculine
-flabby upper arms that make me look busty and matronly
-not being able to cross my legs all the way
-not being able to feel comfortable sitting on my boyfriend's lap

and so on...

look forward to having this chat again

-NzK

I wrote a list of things I wont miss about being overweight in my journal and I came up with 23 things A few of them include:

-Feeling unattractive and like the fat friend
-muffin tops!
-feeling like a failure
-not feel sexy in my sexy clothes/underwear

and I noticed that EVERY SINGLE THING on my list is not any more a part of my life! so even though I have only lost 20 pounds I have crossed every thing of the list and I want to keep it that way!

I was wondering Nickyzeekat how the hunger scale thing works? It sounds like a brilliant idea

So I wasn't around when this thread went around the first time, but there are LOTS of things I won't miss.
I like yours about not feeling comfortable sitting on your boyfriend's lap.
I also have always hated not being able to cross my legs under my desk while at school
I will never miss getting winded when I tie my shoes
I will never miss wearing shorts over my bathing suit
I will never miss only wearing jeans because I do not feel comfortable in skirts, pants, or dresses
I hate not feeling like going out on errands or declining an invitation to a social event because I do not have clothes that I feel 100% comfortable in
I will not miss hiding from the camera or putting my hand in front of my face
I will never miss being unhealthy
I will never miss being my main source of food
I will never miss being so overweight and still in college


I can go on for hours.

I will not miss waking up every morning and thinking about my weight

I will not miss spending full days in pj's because they are the most comfortable thing I own

I will not miss missing out on life

I will not miss hardly being able to fit in the desks at school

I will not miss always feeling like the fat girl

I will not miss SHOPPING AT LANE BRYANT

-being the fat one in the group
-knowing that the weight on my driver's license is wayyy off
-seeing pictures of myself and being disgusted
-dreading hot weather because I can't hide under hoodies and fleeces
-feeling like I'll never find a boyfriend because of my weight
-lack of energy!
-my thighs rubbing together
-seeing the weights of professional male athletes, and knowing I weigh more (UGH!)
-Having to search immediately for the bigger sizes, which are usually limited
-A lack of confidence

Hmmm....OK, good idea for this thread!

-- muffin tops, for sure! I'll second that one!
-- not having anything to wear, because I feel too fat
-- hangovers
-- feeling like the fat friend
-- the feeling of fat rolls in the heat
-- size 12s

Thanks for the wake up call, everyone -- I will be hitting the gym today!

Marathon: I don't even paint my toenails I have my bf do it.

I will not miss jiggling when I walk and walking like a penguin
I will not miss not being able to play with my daughter
I will not miss having to wear old lady clothes
I will not miss my thighs rubbing together
I will not miss people's rude stares and chatter

i won't miss:
sweaty boobs (underneath) sweaty waistbands that roll down;
being afraid to look at myself naked in a full mirror and then shuddering when I peek; seeing pictures of "thinner" me and missing that person; thinking of food all the time;
