Default Positive thread!...what do u actually like about having a little bit extra?

Ok so I see a lot of what do u hate and what hasn't worked. And I know this is a weight loss forum. But just to bring positive energy and focus on what is great about your body no matter what size. I thought we should list something you love about having a little extra.

I have to admit my boobs are much nicer when I'm this weight and my butt. I'm curvy and I do enjoy that. I know I can be curvy when I'm slimmer but it's not the same. My breasts lose fullness and so does my butt.

And my face losses a lot and tends to look gaunt. So a little extra is nice sometimes.

That being said I can't wait to reach my goal for health reasons and I know how much better I feel and it's so much easier on my body for the activities I enjoy.

Gosh, there's just not much I can think of. Some women carry weight so beautifully and have a lovely hourglass shape. I gain it in a thick band between boobs and waist. This makes my chest far too big (I'm a C/D at my ideal weight as it is) and erases any hint of an hourglass by turning me into a broad-shouldered apple - hot. Not.
I actually really envy women that carry weight in the hips/butt region. And studies show that this is the most desirable body shape from an evolutionary perspective. But no matter how much weight I gain I will never be a truly curvy woman.

Great idea for a thread! I've fallen off the wagon and I like the idea that even though I've 30lbs to lose that I can look in the mirror and find things that I like about myself.

So that being said, I like that my boobs are fuller and don't look like an orange in a sweat sock!

I miss my boobs They were the first thing to go. I went down from a full DD to a full C currently. Told my fiance' if any more go, he's gonna have to pull me off the ledge. The funny thing was, they used to kind of define a little about me. Now I feel like they are small, and have the orange in the sock thing going on. NOT cute.
I do like my waist though. Got a pretty good hourglass thing going on (thanks Mom for the hips and butt).

I like my boobs (however a tad smaller would be fine too) I also like curves and softness so my goal is to be healthy and still curvy. I have never been at my goal weight as an adult so I may miss more then I know when I get there (or not

I do have to say that children love my soft fullness and love to climb all over me and snuggle me. Whenever I have worked in childcare I tend to be the fav teacher for snuggling with and falling asleep on

Haha, gosh so true.

I like that I can handle the cold, losing weight I notice the cold sooo much more! And as I'm in Southern Hemisphere we are just in winter now argh. And cushion on the butt, sitting on hard surfaces so much more annoying now -LOL-

I gotta say I miss the girls, too. I was out with my girlfriend the other night and she and I used to have the same size boobs. Well, I truly believe that 10 of my almost 50 pounds lost were in the boobs. After seeing pics of us is when I became SO aware of how small they are now. And now more than ever, I miss them.

RIP boobies....

1/4/15: Restarting my journey exactly 4 years from when I first started in January 2011. Reached my goal weight in 2012 and regained half of it back.

I never should have left 3FC!

I would never admit or do this in public But my tummy fat forms a perfect shelf to rest my laptop when I have my feet up and sometimes I think how when I lose weight it's going to be way less comfortable to sit there and type leaning back. But somehow I think I'll manage.

217 lb - 10 lb. lost - Achieved! 6/30/11
208 lb - BMI 29.8 (no longer "obese"!) - Achieved! 7/31/11
199 lb - Onederland! - Achieved! 9/11/11
190 lb - where I hope to be for Christmas - Achieved! 10/23/11
180 lb - what I weighed in college! - Achieved! 10/7/12
173 lb - BMI 24.8 (no longer "overweight"!) - Achieved! 12/6/12
160 lb - my lowest former weight! - Achieved! 7/11/13

150 lb - final goal weight!! - (target: 10/1/13)

I will miss my boobs, as much as I curse them now, (hello back pain if I don't wear a super supportive expensive bra) I've had them since I was a teen, ever increasing in size. I think I will miss them a lot.

I will miss being COMFY... though honestly not sure I am going to lose enough weight ever to lose that. I've always been soft and comfy again since I was in high school. I was the "mom" person my friends turned to when we were at boarding school when they needed a hug because they missed their parents. Etc. I'm like an oversized pillow!

I'll like being a chubby girl because I'm single. It just means I can talk to who I want to (though they might not talk to me) and no one pairs us up or thinks we are dating. No one ever accuses me of flirting with their man etc etc... the kind of BS that some of my thinner friends get from other women who are jealous or suspicious. Kind of nice to not have to worry about that.

I like how I float when I swim, I don't like to swim in public but I love the contrast of the floating feeling I get there to reality. If I ever reach GW I don't think it will be quite the same.

I like that people think I am cute. In a teddybear sort of way.

However... my heart health, says that those are not good enough reasons to stay at my current weight so... gotta get back on track!

Silent Funny you say that-- my ex-husband's favorite place to rest his head was on my boobs. He called it the Sealy boob-- like the mattress. Sweet, eh? He fell asleep there every time. It wasn't me resting my head on my husband's chest-- was the other way around.

I'm a decent "C" when I'm on the thinner side, so they should stay about that size when I'm where I want to be, only more deflated looking. ~sigh~ Maybe they will look upwards to the sky a little more by then.

I like my curves. I just totally despise my belly, especially the side view. But heck, I am 5'9", and way back in high school I was a juniors' size 13. Nice curvy-ness at that age, but I could not stand that side view for anything in the world, even at 17 years old.

First major goal to lose 10% of my 355lb weight Jan 1, 2013 (35.5lbs=319.5)!! MET IT ON FEB 2014!!
Next goal 20% of my 355lb weight (20% = 284#)
1 dancing marshmallow for every 5 pounds I lose to not look like one anymore!

Hmm, I'm an apple really but losing 50 lbs has given me a really nice curve along my waist. I still have a lot more to go but I'm hoping to keep some of that curve
