-I want to go to a restaurant to eat and not feel like I'm being stared at.
-I want to get rid of all the health issues from being obese.
-I want to give myself a pedicure without having to pick up and move stomach or boob flab to reach.
-I want to wear normal clothes, not ones made for big women, especially since I'm too big for most places 'plus-sizes.'
-I want to be able to walk around town and not have my body puff up like an out of breath sun-burnt marshmallow. (not sure why that happens)
-I want to be able to go out and work a full 8 hour shift at a job and not feel like I'm going to die by the end of it.
-I want to move to Florida (my home where I grew up) and not be worried someone is going to call Greenpeace to roll the whale back into the ocean.
-I would love to be able to wear a bikini for the first time in my life.
-I want to not be mortified to put my picture on Facebook because I've gained 100lbs since my friends last saw me.
-I want to stick it to the people who always told me I was fat and worthless and would always be that way.
