What "little things" do you look forward to when you lose your weight? I was just thinking this AM about it...

1) I can't wait to step out of the shower in front of our mirrored closet and not wonder if my boyfriend is looking at my back rolls

2) I can't wait to not have to sit in the front seat of a packed car (biggest in front!)

3) I can't wait to order a cheeseburger and not feel self-conscious that everybody in the restaurant is saying "should she really be having that?"

4) I can't wait to walk in a store and shop in the MISSES section, not Women's!!

5) I can't wait to not see the word "OBESE" on my medical file!

I'm hoping some of your awesome "little things" will help keep me on the right track!!

Many years ago, when I was in my early 20's, I joined WW and got down to about 135, the smallest I have been in my adult life. My high weight back then was about 180, a weight I was deeply ashamed of (interestingly, I am no more ashamed of my current weight than I was of that weight -- probably less so -- and don't perceive myself to be any bigger, which may be part of the problem).

Anyway, my office had some kind of celebration at a restaurant one night and there was also dancing. I remember one of the office guys "slow" dancing with me, but he was really good, twirls and fast moves and such. I had never been able to keep up with anyone like that before, but I remember I did, and I had such a good time!

Now I am almost 60 and newly engaged(!). My fiance loves to dance and is very good, but I never dance with him. It is sad, really. He loves me for me, I know, but I also know he loves to dance and misses it. If I were slim I know I could dance with him and not be awkward and slow because I still remember that time 35+ years ago when I was able ... to....dance. CJ

~not having to worry that I'm outeating everyone, including guys, at parties
~not having my thighs rub together also
~not having people make snarky comments when I go to lunch at work (it happened, years ago, still haven't forgotten it)
~being able to wear a bikini again! (Haven't worn one in 13 years)
~not having only two clothing store options to choose from in the mall and both of them suck and are horribly expensive.
~attracting men!
~not feeling snug in a plane or theater seat (can fit in one, but as mentioned, it is a bit tight.)

These are just a few of several.

-not making a joke about myself to cover up how I really feel
-when someone refers to me as small and I look around to see if they are really talking to me.
-hot having to worry when getting out the car or chair making sure pants don't fall under rolls or your stomach is showing
-when someone hugs me or when a guy touches my back i don't feel disgusted
-when taking a picture with others then viewing it, i don't have to mental prepare on how fat i will look
-or when taking a picture you try to do the pose that underemphasis your weight
-when walking a short distance not looking like you just walked a mile, sweaty and shiny. lol
you ladies probably going to kick my butt for saying this but when a guy walks by I won't think I could have gotten him if i was smaller. (sad but true)
-going to a food buffet with confidence

Maybe I'm superficial, but I most look forward to being able to buy lots of fabulous clothes.

dymondnruff - great list! i like the one about walking, hehe, cuz i sweat like a pig!

beaka - not superficial at all. I can't wait for that either.. I hate going shopping with my thin friends because I can't buy anything from the stores they shop at, and vice versa. I'll be happy even wearing an XL, as long as it's in the misses dept!
