I have to agree with Leeesa! I just can't make up my mind between Lucky, True Religion, or For all man kind. The only problem is no matter how much weight I loose I will always have an ample booty.

Ooh! I want to have a total makeover. I've always been a big tomboy, and even though I've gotten better about wearing the "girl" versions of clothes instead of the big baggy shirts I used to wear, I still pretty much do the t-shirt and jeans with no makeup or jewelry thing everywhere I go. Which is fine, it's practical and easy, but I'd like to have fun with more girly stuff too. :) So I'm gonna set up a day when I reach goal that's entirely outside my usual routine... hair, nails, some sort of spa thing, new clothes, and a night on the town. Why not? :D

03-29-2009, 02:53 AM
*shop at banana republic
*shop (again) at victoria secret ;)
*start training for a running or cycling marathon

03-29-2009, 02:56 AM
I have to agree with Leeesa! I just can't make up my mind between Lucky, True Religion, or For all man kind. The only problem is no matter how much weight I loose I will always have an ample booty.

7 for All Man Kind is a very excellent brand; good quality and I recommend it. My next choice down the list is Lucky!

For me... man have I thought about this for a long time!

When I reach my goal, there are so many things I want to do! I've not really thought about it before. Lots are to do with dressing up and appearance, but I think it's because this is an area I feel I've really missed out on as a heavier person.

1. I'd love to buy a lovely pair of leather knee high boots! I've wanted some boots forever, but due to my huge calf circumference, I've found it impossible to find any that fit. Like many heavier people, most of my calf is muscle, but I know it's slimmed slightly since losing 50lbs, so I think if I can just lose an inch or two I'll be able to fit into lots of lovely boots!

2. I want to be able to wear high heels! I don't think I would want to wear them very often, but I've never been interested in heels because I feel that they make my legs look awful - like two huge cones going down to a delicate point on the heel - augh! I'd like to be able to wear them every now and then when I feel like dressing up and being glamourous!

3. I want to feel totally comfortable when I am naked. I really love being naked around my boyfriend when I'm in bed, it feels lovely and I really enjoy the closeness and intimacy, but I don't think I'd want to stand in front of him without clothes on for any long length of time. I do it when I jump out of bed in the morning to grab my towel, that's about it! I'd like to be able to be confident and feel sexy and not try and cover up.

4. I'd like to get a really beautifully made corset. I think one would look really good on me now, but I want to save it until I reach goal weight so that it fits me for longer!

5. I'd love to be able to perch on my boyfriend's knee, and not wince with embarrassment when he goes to pick me up! I don't think he feels that I'm really heavy or anything, but I would love to feel lighter and to not even have it enter my mind that I might "crush" him if I want to sit on his lap!

03-29-2009, 06:14 PM
break 3h30m in a marathon

03-29-2009, 06:57 PM

03-29-2009, 08:45 PM

1) Buy and WEAR a bikini
2) Get a couple pairs of nice high heels

03-29-2009, 08:59 PM

pocketful of posies
03-29-2009, 10:32 PM

wear wonderful, cute, strappy, sexy shoes

run a 5K
compete in a masters division bodybuilding competition
go on a romantic second honeymoon

OMG! You're kidding right? With your size and everything, people in Singapore won't laugh at that "big american"! You're like the rest of us (or rather, the normal sized version of the Singaporean)

03-30-2009, 09:53 AM
get my belly button pierced

03-30-2009, 09:55 AM
being "functionally fit" so I can race my kid around the house, and do more active stuff this summer like landscaping.

03-30-2009, 09:57 AM
When I lost weight I wanted to be able to:
- go clothes shopping without getting totally depressed
- not be embarrassed to wear a bathing suit in public
- be able to hike and run and bike with ease

One of the things I love the most about being lighter is how it is SO much easier to go hiking. I remember hiking up trails 40 pounds overweight and out of shape, and yes I made it, but I was huffing/puffing and slow. It was a struggle. Last year, vacation hiking up the mountains was pure pleasure. I found that I could just BLOW by everyone else on the trail and hardly break a sweat. 15 mile day hikes are no big deal. I can carry a 35 pound pack 6 miles up the mountain and camp out under the stars. I can still have Great Adventures - and I'm almost 50! More than appearance, more than clothing size -- that has been my greatest reward.

03-30-2009, 10:03 AM
Dang...there are so many things I want to add to my list!!

My husband and I are going to the Fiji Islands after we lose all our weight!!

03-30-2009, 10:05 AM
I am going to show off my figure instead of hiding behind baggy sweatshirts.

I am going to get my nose pierced (LOL, I am 44 so this may be odd)

I am going to get a little black dress

I am going to actually wear a tight Tshirt and try not to be self conscious about my huge boobs

03-30-2009, 06:51 PM
Wear a bikini... in public!
I haven't done that since I was like 7!

03-30-2009, 07:15 PM
a) have wild and wonderful intimate encounters with my husband, often
b) buy stylish clothing again
c) allow pictures to be taken of me
d) go dancing

03-30-2009, 07:54 PM
Go swimming!

03-30-2009, 11:37 PM
When I get to my idea weight I want my first tattoo. Just not sure where I will put it or what it will be ....

03-31-2009, 12:21 AM
I share many of these desires :D

I think.. I am going to FLIRT :D And embrace my sexual nature. To step in-line with who I truly am inside.

03-31-2009, 12:35 AM
Actually enjoy the beach.

bikini bod
03-31-2009, 12:51 AM
Stop faking like I'm cold and take my trusty sweater off that's hiding my muffintop

03-31-2009, 01:05 AM
OMG! You're kidding right? With your size and everything, people in Singapore won't laugh at that "big american"! You're like the rest of us (or rather, the normal sized version of the Singaporean)

I'm probably over-anxious because my Singaporean mother is about 20 pounds lighter than me and has always urged me to lose weight and prove that I inherited her "Chinese bones." And then I see the Asian television starlets at some 100 pounds and think that's the standard--but I guess that's kinda stupid huh? I mean, thinking all Japanese women look like Yukie Nakama is like thinking all American women look like Megan Fox :o

03-31-2009, 03:00 AM
I mean, thinking all Japanese women look like Yukie Nakama is like thinking all American women look like Megan Fox

*nods* Totally. :yes:

03-31-2009, 02:56 PM
I am going to go on a shopping spree! I want to buy form fitting clothes (nice clothes) not sloppy t shirts that I were now to hide my muffin top. (as if it hides it anyway!!!)

I am also going to enjoy the beach, pool and water park. I go now but I don't enjoy it because I know I look so horrible.

Get in those go carts, amusement park rides. The seatbelts are very snug right now and I am afraid to get in one too tight that won't fight and I'll have to get an extender... :(

Go horseback riding

hopefully walk (live) without pain from all the extra weight.

03-31-2009, 03:01 PM
There are the obvious...
- Wear a bathing suit...in public (beach, waterpark)
- Wear shorts/skirts...show cellulite free legs
- Wear cute clothes to the gym versus the oversided tshirt that still doesnt cover my giggle and that I'm constantly fighting with!
- Shopping spree! I want to be hot, not frompy! I want to look classy and sofisticated at work but also flip it to a sleek and stylish everyday look...one that turns heads...one that exudes confidence...one that non-verbally screams how good I feel

I cant wait to...
- Do a sexy, edgy photoshoot with my boyfriend...something very urban (alley, train tracks, night time, etc) and I want to rock the hottest outfit. I want our pics to look like they came from a magazine!
- Go up this one particular mountain in AZ without getting completely winded. Actually...to run up it the mountain and beat my boyfriend to the top and say "Haha sucka...why are you still at the bottom!" I'm not competitive or anything ;)
- Start dancing again and feel good about looking at myself in the mirror. I'd love to take Bellydancing classes and not fear my belly rolling when its not supposed to!

I have tons of things that I cant wait to do!!! Typing that actually made me feel very empowered and encouraged!

03-31-2009, 03:11 PM
Wow great topic!!

I want to:
Wear a Bikini for the FIRST TIME EVER
Get out more
try on those clothes that I'd never be able to fit into
I could go on and on ..... :)
