I wish chocolate was a low calorie fiber filled vegetable.

What do you wish?

04-24-2009, 03:38 AM
I wish I had my piano.

04-24-2009, 06:30 AM
I wish that chocolate cornflake cakes were a low fat, low calorie superfood.

I miss them. x

04-24-2009, 06:40 AM
I wish frying foods in oil was a way of nutritionally enhancing food.

04-24-2009, 08:03 AM
I wish we all had one "free pass" food that we could eat all we wanted and never absorb the calories. I would pick Taco Bell Mexican Pizzas. That way, whenever I felt like stuffing my face because of stress or sadness or boredom, I could just pick up a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza (or three) and eat to my heart's content without ever gaining weight.

04-24-2009, 08:11 AM
I wish that food affected everyone the same way. I hate eating with people who can just stuff themselves with cake and stay perfectly skinny, especially when they don't understand that my body isn't the same as theirs, and try to push their habits on me.

I wish I had a decent singing voice!

04-24-2009, 09:24 AM
I wish I was fluent in multiple languages (without effort, naturally).

04-24-2009, 09:27 AM
I wish that no matter WHAT I ate, my body would magically have the right number of calories and all my nutrients.

04-24-2009, 10:17 AM
I wish I was millionaire!

04-24-2009, 10:30 AM
I wish that I owned a house and had a home gym in it!

04-24-2009, 10:38 AM
I wish fried chicken didn't clog your arteries.

04-24-2009, 11:12 AM
I wish my 21-year-old son didn't have type 1 diabetes.

04-24-2009, 11:13 AM
I wish I could have the perfect, fit and toned body without every having to work for it or watch what I eat.

04-24-2009, 11:40 AM
I wish Oreo's would assist me in loosing weight. I wish the government would forgive my debt. I wish child abusers did not exsist. I wish all the above wishes also come true...

04-24-2009, 11:54 AM
I wish that I could wish myself into a body that looked like Eva Mendes and that ice cream had no calories oh and that running didn't hurt!

04-24-2009, 12:02 PM
I wish that the "average, healthy" weight loss for a week was 9-10 pounds instead of 1-2!!

04-24-2009, 12:17 PM
I wish i could sit on my bum and not exercise to be thin; and that no matter what i tried, would always work.

04-24-2009, 12:19 PM
I wish I'd woken up this morning a fit, muscular size 10.

04-24-2009, 02:54 PM
I already wished, but I'm selfish, so ... I wish I'd get paid to lose weight!

Sometimes I imagine that I am getting paid to lose weight and I'm going to buy a house when I'm done. $1,000 per pound ... ! Ah! Instead I might get an as-yet unnamed small amount in a store gift card from my insurance company, for logging my veggies/fruits and exercise on their website.

You know, I did read that the governments of England and one town in Italy were paying people in checks for weight lost.

04-24-2009, 02:55 PM
I wish I didn't give up a month ago and return to my bad habits.
I wish sugar didn't have this much power over me.
I wish I lost the weight when I was in grade 8 instead of right now.

04-24-2009, 03:19 PM
I wish I didn't crave sweets all the time!

04-24-2009, 05:23 PM
I wish I only needed 4 hours of sleep a night instead of 9. Time seems to be the only thing I simply can't work around or buy more of.

04-24-2009, 06:11 PM
I wish I hadn't regained 20 pounds.

04-24-2009, 06:17 PM
i wish the war in afganistain would be over..i wish i could eat the fries that my dh is eating right now..1 french fry is 1 inch on my body.

04-24-2009, 06:29 PM
I totally just ate a chocolate bar, and I wish I hadn't done that.

04-24-2009, 07:29 PM
I wish I had a personal chef for just one day a week - when I wouldn't have to cook and he would prepare creative healthy meals that would just melt in my mouth.

Naah, scratch that. Then it would double hard to return to my own cooking etc.

So I am changing my wish - I wish I had arms and shoulders like Madonna.

04-24-2009, 07:37 PM
I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner...
NO seriously
I wish I could indulge in free-form eating without consequences.
I wish fitness could come in the form of a pill.
I wish I could lose all this weight and keep it off for once.
I wish that my family would just get along...

04-25-2009, 05:15 PM
I really wish I did not waste so many years trying to lose weight,and just did it.
I wish I knew at age21,what I know now.
I wish I had the self confidence I have now,when I was younger.
I wish I would wake up tomorrow,and be thin.
I wish I had my dream job.

04-25-2009, 10:12 PM
I wish when I lost 20 pounds when I was 21, I hadn't thought "Oh, I can lose it again" when I gained it back.

I wish I hadn't kept thinking that for the next 20 pounds, or the 20 after that, or the 20 after that (etc) for the past ten years.

04-26-2009, 08:31 AM
I wish my job were completely secure & guarenteed for as long as I wanted it.

I wish the co-op board at the co-op where I'm currently trying to buy a two-bedroom apartment would review all the materials that I supply to them & say, "Yes, definitely, we're okaying her to move into our building."

I wish my left foot would not have plantar fasciitis or arthritis in the big toe joint, and I wish my knees would be less achey.

I wish my mother remained in good health & of sound mind & not depressed for many years to come.

04-26-2009, 08:37 AM
I wish I could run like the wind effortlessly.
I wish that the world's powerful would quit stomping on the rest.
I wish I was still in the shape I was when I tested for black belt.
I wish for no money worries for me and the ones I love.
I wish for less than 18% body fat.

I know the wishes are supposed to be perfectly selfish and I have a few there that seem to encompass others, but selfishly, I would be happier if there was more peace on the planet.

04-26-2009, 01:08 PM
I wish I could fly like a bird.

04-26-2009, 02:14 PM
I wish I wasn't such an emotional eater.

I wish my DH was happier with his job. When he is happy we're all happy.

04-27-2009, 01:30 AM
I wish I liked vegetables. It would make this weight loss thing a lot easier.

04-27-2009, 01:40 AM
I wish I could curl 20lb dumbbells.

I wish I could eat more and still lose weight.

I wish I didn't get so hungry and get so many cravings while trying to change my eating habits.

I wish I was a size 8.

04-27-2009, 01:47 AM
I wish I knew what I wanted to do with my life NOW, instead of wasting 50,000 dollars and endless energy and emotion and TEARS on an education I'm not sure I'll ever even use.

04-27-2009, 08:51 AM
i wish my metabolism was as great as my boyfriend's. (that kid is a twig, but stuffs himself full of crap 24-7 and NEVER exercises!)

04-27-2009, 10:33 AM
I wish i would have stopped eating crap when my size 9 pants started getting too tight instead of ballooning up to a size 22.

I wish that stretch marks didnt exist so that when i lost this weight i could wear tank tops, short shorts and bikini's.

I really wish that i didnt have to put any effort towards what i ate and could just exercise to lose weight.

04-27-2009, 10:47 AM
I wish that I loved vegetables!!

04-27-2009, 12:07 PM
I wish that I had my dream job.

04-27-2009, 12:42 PM
I wish all your wishes come true!!!

04-27-2009, 01:23 PM
OH MAN you ladies have some AWESOME wishes!!

I really like jellydisney's idea of the free food pass. Mine would be ice cream. I would like to kill half a gallon of that stuff without consequences :lol:

I wish I could consume large quantities of food and still lose weight. I wish I could be back to 125 again. (hey Allison, you aren't the only one who regained some weight ;))I wish I could eat the number of calories I need to lose weight and gag on anything even one calorie over that.

I wish I was a millionaire, too, BUT I have plenty of time to get there and so do most of us! :D

I wish I was already in bodybuilding contest shape so I wouldn't have to bust my @$$ and work for it. Oh well! I will get there anyway.

I wish I didn't have type 1 diabetes, depression, and ADD. Oh well. None of 'em are death sentences! (Yup, Jacqui_D, while I am sure it's a grandiose annoyance for your son just like it is for me, there are many, many worse things he could be dealing with :))

I wish I could be president, too, but only if I knew I was completely incapable of screwing up our country. :lol:

04-27-2009, 02:48 PM
I wish healthy food tasted like chocolate.
I wish my bf didn't live so far away :(
I wish we lost weight as fast as we put it on.
I wish i had better genes!!!!

04-27-2009, 02:53 PM
I wish I wouldn't had let myself get so big, and could be like every other girl my age and wouldn't be having such a hard time right now.

I wish I could drop70 lbs eating nothing but fried chicken.

04-27-2009, 03:04 PM
I wish being *strong & fit* wasn't hard work.

04-27-2009, 10:09 PM
We're moving this week, so I wish someone would come and pack, load, unload, and unpack for free!

I wish I liked hiking and running.

And of course, I wish I had a million dollars.

04-27-2009, 10:21 PM
I wish McDonald's was good for you.

04-27-2009, 10:38 PM
I wish my skin would snap right back to the way it was when i was 15. nice, smooth, tone, without saggy, wrinkly, stretch marks!
