100 lb. Club - The silly things you can't wait for....

07-08-2010, 10:44 PM
So, I was thinking today about all the things I'm excited to FINALLY be able to do again, once I lose these 100lbs holding me back...

1. sit with my legs crossed- WITHOUT having to actually hold my leg up.
2. Get out of the shower, and wrap a "normal" sized bath towel ALL THE WAY around... not just held at the top, while the sides flap open. This might sound weird, but it's one of the biggest motivators for me! I want that towel to cover EVERYTHING.
3. For my bellybutton ring to look good again... you know.. like it did when I got it five years ago.
4. To buy lingerie to wear for my husband.. and KNOW i look good in it. :o
5. To wear shorts. The real kind, not the ones that go just past the knee.

So, ladies... what are some of the non-scale silly little things you're looking forward to most?

1. I too want the normal sized towel!
2. Being able to wear cute clothes and not having to shop in the plus size section. Especially the PINK line by Victoria's Secret.
3. Not having the tops of my inner thighs rub together.

07-08-2010, 11:08 PM
1. To shop for clothes and not come home empty handed and frustrated.
2. To dance without feeling my legs hurting after just a few minutes
3. To run with my dogs.
4. To have sex in more than one position...(well you asked)
5. To not feel aches after walking on the treadmill.
6. To stop feeling like 'I can't do that" because of my wait...what ever "That" is at the moment.

07-08-2010, 11:08 PM
Having people I've met recently say "I just can't imagine you fat".

07-08-2010, 11:52 PM
1. to know that it doesnt matter what ride, or chair or whatever i sit in... THE BELT WILL FIT..
2. to not care who see's me in a bathing suit
3. to be able to wear a formal gown without worrying about my arms
4. to not get *that* look when i walk in to shops that dont carry my size.. (usually buying presents or stuff for my daughters)
5. to not get "that look" from young skanks at bar's...
6. to not have really hideous men (personality wise) hit on you beacause "your fat, you MUST be desperate for attention"
7. to not be told "wow you would be really pretty if you were skinny"
8. to know that boots will fit me
9. to be able to sit comfortably in a plastic chair without the fear that it will break.
10. to not have to live in fear that if i died tomorrow the poor paramedics/undertaker/pall bearers have to break their backs to carry me

So many!

Go on a bike ride with my kids.
Shop in the "nornal" section of a store.
Buying jeans off the table in Sam's Club (where there are no dressing rooms) and saying to myself, "These are size 10 - I am a size 10 - I think I will buy them."
The towel thing.
Not feeling gross in a bathing suit.
Never laying down on the bed to zip a pair of jeans.
Shopping from catalogs that sell normal sizes.
Not feeling sick everytime I walk by a store window and seeing my reflection.
Wearing heels again!
Wearing pencil skirts again!
Lingerie show for my husband.
Being too cold instead of too hot.

Oh, and sitting at a restaurant booth without my boobs taking a seat at the table. Really looking forward to that!

I Can And I Will

I NEVER want to have to step foot in Lane Bryant again!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that there is a nice store for plus sized woman to shop, but I hate everything it represents to me. It reminds me that I have let myself go, how much I hate not being able to shop anywhere else and just that I'm plain fat.

07-09-2010, 12:47 PM

Heck, even when I weighed 130 I was called "thunder thighs". Runs in my family.

07-09-2010, 01:54 PM
Well mine would have to be to be able to play volleyball next fourth of July at our friends cook out. This year I wanted to so bad but I was scared to because of my weight. Everyone else was "normal size" and then you have me! Oh and to be able to walk around with my husband and have people look at me for another reason then the fact that we are so mismatched. ( He is 6'4" and weighs about 160 soaking wet). Oh and my biggest thing is buying a new wedding dress. I have one already and it fits me now and is beautiful but I want to be able to look at my dad and say I have to go and get a new dress this one is swallowing me!

07-09-2010, 02:45 PM
I just want to know what it feels like to be at a healthy range because I have never been in a normal weight range since I was very little.

I don't miss anything because I never had it.

07-09-2010, 03:41 PM

I can relate to alot of the other posts in this thread. :)

One of my "can't wait fors" is ....

I can't wait to see what my face is going to look like.

I just wonder what my face really looks like after spending all of my adult years overweight.

07-09-2010, 07:59 PM
It's such a great feeling to read through this thread and realize that so many of these things that used to be on my list are now achieved.

I can't wait to finish my first 5 k.

I can't wait to have the guts to walk into one of those small boutiquey type stores that doesn't carry above a smallish 12 and know I'll find something that fits.

I can't wait to be so physically fit that I people who meet me could not imagine that I had ever been fat.

07-09-2010, 09:53 PM
To not have to ask for a seatbelt extender on an airplane!

I know what you mean..the first time I rode on a plane was a year ago and I squeezed myself into that seatbelt and was uncomfortable the whole flight..I was too embarrassed to ask for and extender. 8 months later for my next flight I bought me a seatbelt extender online just so I wouldn't have to be embarrassed. That's so sad..never again

-I want to wear shorts and not have the ride up because of my thighs rubbing together.
-To not have to use anti chaffing gel under my belly and boobs ( sorry if TMI)
-I want to be able to go to a theme park and not have to worry about whether or not I will fit.
-To wear sexy lingerie for my husband
-NO more clothes out of the plus size section (where they think we are all 65 and older)

I Can And I Will
07-09-2010, 10:15 PM
Oh, and I can't wait to be able to buy regular shirts, not the ones with the "elbow" length sleeves to hide my big arms.

07-09-2010, 10:20 PM
To look around and not be the fattest person in the room.
To not weigh more than some linebackers do.
To wear single digit clothes.
To not have an X or multiple X's in the labels of my shirts.
To be able to bend over and get something off the floor with out having to get up or someone else get it.
To not have to apply anti chaffing powder to every part of my body.
To see my feet without bending over.
To not get out of breath just trying to tie my shoes or other simple activities.

Jeez. I could go on and on.

07-09-2010, 10:50 PM
I can't wait to walk without hearing my thighs swishing so embarrassing
I can't wait to until I can move around without sweating like I have just ran a marathon
I can't wait until I can go buy sexy clothes/outfits
I can't wait until I no longer look like I'm having another child at the end of the day
I can't wait until I no longer have the chafing issues under my boobs from the constant sweating
I can't wait until the rolls are gone and my bra isn't curled up in it, no more burning from the redness when I take it off
I can't wait to hear people say, WOW YOU LOOK GREAT since I have talked about losing weight for so long
... Oh I can't wait until I can sit on my bed and look in the mirror and my stomach doesn't stick out further than my boobs

07-09-2010, 11:54 PM

I shoulda been a cowgirl, I've always had built in saddlebags.

It must be a 5'4" thing. :D This is my big "can't wait" still! I too remember weighing 130 pounds and my legs chaffed in shorts or skirts. I'm hoping all this strength training will eventually tone up that area!! I carry the majority of my weight in my thighs at present.

All these "can't waits" are within your reach folks!! My list used to include all of these and the only one left now is the thigh rub thing! :D

When I'm in a cafe or restaurant and have to walk through the other tables and diners, I want not to have to sit there before hand pre-planning the route with the biggest gaps.

Good one!!!

I want to not have to check and see the "maximum weight" on bicycles, or exercise equipment or the like, cause I'll be way below the minimums!!!

I want to never have to ask for a different chair because I can't fit in the one I was supposed to sit in. (or avoid places with arms on the chairs.)

07-10-2010, 03:58 PM
There is a dress in my closet that I last remember wearing in 1986. I really can't say why it survived two house moves (including one across 5 states) and numerous closet purges. I think it's because the fabric colors and pattern made me happy to look at just hanging on the hanger and it always put me in a good mood to wear that dress.

Now it has become my goal outfit. It is very fitted style and an 80's size 12 (which would likely be a what, size 8 by today's standard?). Really looking forward to strutting my stuff in this dress.

07-10-2010, 04:15 PM
My goals are..

-To not wear out the fabric of bottoms because my thighs cause friction
-To out run/fool around with my brother that is 3 years younger..we love sibling rivalry
-To finally prove everyone that this is NOT who I am, Liz 2.0 is busting to get out!
-To dress my age and enjoy being single in my 20s
-To not be so self conscious talking to guys because of my weight
-To go into a normal store and not have to look at the highest size and try to squeeze myself into it because I am determined to have it
-To feel good going to the beach or laying out by the pool

Sooo many more!
