General Diet Plans and Questions - After u reach your goal weight what is something you want to do?

01-07-2010, 02:14 PM
I think it would be interesting to find out what everyone wants to do when they reach their goal weight?

Also, if you already reached your goal,,,what did you do that you couldn't or wouldn't do before?

Mine is: I want to go to our local thrift store and shop,,,lol,,,3/4 of the clothes their are a size 7 and I love the thrift stores. I also want to feel comfortable with less clothes on around my husband.

id like to be able to go to the beach/pool and be able to not constantly adjust my bathing suit and position to make sure nothing is hanging out and no weird rolls are going on haha

1) Have some really nice professional pictures done with my son. We haven't had any done together since he was a wee baby and he's five now. I've just been way to self conscious and felt like it would be a waste...



Hey, that helped! I've been feeling like I wanted to quit all day today...I feel fatter than ever even though I've been good and working out and I had really been wanting to raid the vending machine...but I won't now. Those pictures will be worth it...

01-07-2010, 02:47 PM
short sleeves
wear boots that come to my calves(i have large calves)
wear tights and look good in them lol

I want to try Rock Climbing. The nearest indoor place I can find is Nashville, and while its only a few hours away, I keep putting it off, thinking I'm too heavy and knowing I'll do better carrying less 'extra weight'

01-07-2010, 03:05 PM
go to the beach and not be worry about whos looking at me in disgust
wear shorts n tube tops during the summer

01-07-2010, 03:06 PM
Patchwork how is the weather out there? I'm headed that way tomorrow after work! I have family in Memphis and the surrounding areas. I'm a West Tennessee girl!

I've heard it's getting bad and I'm getting a little nervous about the drive!

1. Feel more comfy naked around my husband
2. Take family pictures
3. Hike or ride a bike for a long TIME
4. Wear a bathing suit and actually feel okay in it
5. and I hope by then I can run for at least 45 minutes straight

01-07-2010, 05:00 PM
Heh, I'd like to run into a certian ex. One of the reasons I dumped him was he kept encouraging me to "lose weight to get healthy" (at 170) and his friends would ask him why he was dating someone so large.

01-07-2010, 05:04 PM
that reminds me,,,this is not right i know,,but there was a place i use to work and they would allthe time make fat jokes and even told me one time that they thought i'd gained weight. they would prance around. after i get skinny,,,im gonna prance myself in there. YES it will make me feel

01-07-2010, 05:15 PM
ALL of the stuff you guys already listed!

*Wear sleevless shirts without feeling like my arms at what everyone is staring at.
*Wear shorts and dresses
*Do activities outside without feeling like I am going to overheat
*Take PICTURES! I hate having people take pictures of me.
*Go shopping and be excited, not dread trying on jeans.

01-07-2010, 06:08 PM
Take SO many pictures, I hate pictures right now. And, shop shop shop. I can not wait to shop!

01-07-2010, 06:25 PM
I am gonna scream & shout like theres no tommorrow!

Just 15 more pounds~Which I may wanna lose a little more when I get there But that has been my original main goal for over a year now when I started my journey & I can hardly believe I am nearly there...Its Like A VERY GOOD DREAM ON ITS WAY TO BECOMING TRUE.

01-07-2010, 06:26 PM
1.) I want to be skinny by my ten year high school reunion. I was always the fat girl that the popular kids made fun of. I was overweight sure, but I was by no means the biggest girl in the school! Kids are just crule!

2.) Wear a bikini top and short shorts to the beach!

3.) Date superficially (for a short time) and break guy's hearts! lol Mean I know but turn about is fair play. Right?

01-07-2010, 06:48 PM
Patchwork how is the weather out there? I'm headed that way tomorrow after work! I have family in Memphis and the surrounding areas. I'm a West Tennessee girl!

I've heard it's getting bad and I'm getting a little nervous about the drive!Its colder than we are used to! The snow we had has melted already, and it didn't stick to the roads. AR got slammed, however. The predictions I have seen are for more flurries for the rest of the week, but I don't think it will stick. 5* is the low for Friday. Brrr! Nashville weather says snow for Friday however.. This is the site I get my weather, just punch in the zip or city name. pretty accurate, actually.

My quilting buddy's daughter attends Sewanee.

ShinyLizard, The friend of one of my old BF's asked him why he was dating someone as big as me! This 'friend' obviously didn't own a mirror or he would have seen the gut hanging over his waistband. And he criticized me?

01-07-2010, 06:52 PM
I love that last one,,,about breaking guys hearts!!!

I also want to wear sexy clothes and go to a club with my husband

01-07-2010, 11:26 PM
I have some Victoria's Secret jeans in size 10, I would like to put those on and go to the actual store at the mall and buy some of those cute undies again! Besides that, I'd like to try bellydancing lessons :belly: (without the belly) and like the rest of you, get some decent photos taken with my sons.

01-08-2010, 02:31 AM
Just be able to wear clothes without feeling self-conscious about the gut and thighs and eat a burger while dining out without that voice in the back of my head going, "You shouldn't be eating this, you're supposed to be losing weight."

01-08-2010, 03:25 AM
I want to wear boots past my ankles!
Wear lots of tank tops and dresses to show off my tattoos, my back is all done and I want to show it off
Be a jogger ;)

01-08-2010, 12:59 PM
Wear lots of tank tops and dresses to show off my tattoos, my back is all done and I want to show it off.

Would love to see photos of your tatts!!! I have two (small ones) but want more! I love ink!

01-08-2010, 01:28 PM
1) I want to shop anywhere I want, without worrying if they have my size.
2) Full Body pictures, I hate them now
3) Get a new tattoo!

01-09-2010, 02:24 AM
Go clothes shopping.
Have a photo shoot.

01-09-2010, 04:09 PM
There's so many things I would love to do again. Aside from the shopping spree and being proud to be in a photo, I want to be even more active. There's a lot of activities that I haven't been able to try or haven't been able to do in years just because I feel too heavy or unbalanced for them. I haven't gone figure skating for years and I'd really like to get into a judo or martial arts class again. I only took a judo class once in high school and I loved it, but no one wanted to spar with me because even then I was overweight. Oh, and mountain climbing again! Oh my gosh I used to LOVE mountain climbing! I think I would cry when I'm able to do that again because it brings back so many good memories of my father.

01-09-2010, 07:20 PM
Not be embarrassed to be in photos. Right now I'm always torn between wanting there to be photos of me with the kids, and hating that I'm fat in all those photos.

After 3 kids' worth of stretchmarks, a bikini is out of the question LOL but I'd love to be able to wear a bathing suit without feeling self-conscious

Be able to find my size easily wherever I shop.

01-09-2010, 10:35 PM
Tuck shirts in and wear jeans that are more in fashion without a muffin top.

01-09-2010, 11:21 PM
-get a new tattoo
-take an after picture with my friend (I have a picture of us both from Christmas '08 that will make an excellent before. She's lost 55 and I've lost 49 so far)
-Buy a few really nice outfits from Anthropologie (there is nothing available in plus size that can even come close to that store)
-take rock climbing lessons (I might do this slightly before goal if I have the $$)
-I just thought of this one today, but I'd really like to take a trip to NYC with my sister and be able to SHOP there! (Last time I went to NYC was with my mom and we just looked at all the great clothes we can't fit into and bought a couple things for my sister)
-I want to share clothes with my friends. I've never been able to do this. Even my plus size friends are smaller than me. (I'd love to say I want to share clothes with my sister, but she'd have to gain weight for that :lol: We have VERY different body types beyond fat and thin)
-Complete a half marathon and later a sprint triathlon
-I actually have no desire to wear a bikini. I want to wear guy's board shorts and a rash guard and look smoking hot in it. (oh and it'd be nice to learn to surf so I'm not a total poser in it :D)

I love these kinds of threads!!

Things I want to do:
-Wear a bikini and flaunt my stuff
-Wear cute little sun dresses, without having to worry about my big butt making it uncutified.
-More skimpy clothing! And lingerie!
-Have the willpower to go to events that I just feel too embrassed to go to now--and look good doing it! I want to make men jealous of my boyfriend :D

Mostly, I want to be able to get out. I want to be able to go places and do things without worrying about what people think. I know I'm not that large, but I feel like I am!

I'm a big computer and gamer nerd, and in my current body, I just don't like it. Too stereotypical. But a hot and sexy girl who is into computers and gaming? That turns even me on!

:rofl: Oh, you will so be queen of the nerds. And really, what's hotter than a sexy nerd? Personally, I'm more of the art nerd variety, but I'm ready to rock it.

01-10-2010, 06:42 AM
Oh I can't wait to reach goal so I can:

Have a professional photo shoot
Spend a day at a health spa and get pampered and have a French manicure

Wear loads of short skirts and tank tops

No longer feel uncomfortable in my own skin or as if Iím not as gorgeous as my friends
Go back to where I grew up (havenít been home for six years) and show off my new bod to everyone who was mean to me in high school (shallow, I know, but I canít help wanting to do just that)
Just feel good about myself

01-12-2010, 06:09 AM

01-12-2010, 06:48 AM
