The overweight friends thread got me thinking about one of my friends that I don't see to often. She is overweight and can get competitive with me when it comes to weight loss to the point where it's annoying. Since my weight loss journey, I have been looking forward to the day when we do run into each other and she is shocked that I look so good. I feel bad saying that, but it's sorta true. :/

Basically, what I'm trying to ask is are there any people in your life that you look forward to "running into" when you reach your goal weight?

My ex husband. There were a lot of things wrong with our relationship (thus the ex part) but when he threw the fact that I looked different after having a child with him in my face I wanted to kill him. Now, I realize that I do not want him dead, I want him to cry himself to sleep at night knowing he could have been married to a hot, curvy, sexy woman instead of the person he's with now. They say the best revenge is living well.

I wouldnt mind running into my ex (for whom I was never good enough). I remember when we first met he said he thought I looked like a Maxim model. :cool: Now I want him to suffer because some other man is married to this Maxim model. hahah ( I totally dont look like a Model, but I remember him telling me that)

:devil:

I found someone I love ...and I had a baby. Now I am trying to get back to that "Maxim" look.

Haha I would have to go with the ex too! :devil: I bet most people have "the ex" they want to one up. I got a small taste of it a week or so ago... saw him at the gym and his jaw did drop a bit :D but it will be even better when I'm at goal!

I can't think of anyone who I'd want to see specifically. There are those in my past who I wouldn't mind them seeing my transformation, but no one really good like an ex (husband, boyfriend, friend, etc.), or whoever.

For me, I'm letting go of the fear of seeing my aunt and uncle who are very judgmental people. They were critical of my weight loss plan that I chose, saying that it wouldn't work. I lost massive weight and looked pretty darned good. Then I gained, and gained, and gained and dreaded the day I might run in to them somewhere..... they would be RIGHT. Not really, but they would think that.

I don't really see or speak to them, and will see them only when with certain family members, but they live nearby and surely there will come a time when we end up at the same store or wherever. Soon, I will not be embarrassed because even if it' is obvious I gained, at least I "didn't gain as much" (when really I did, but lost some of it) and eventually "maintained my weight".

I'm sure they've seen pictures of me and they are aware of my gain, but at least I can quit worrying about a potential face to face encounter with them.

When I hit my goal there are so many people I want to run into! I wouldn't mind my ex boyfriend seeing me, my ex best friend, even just friends or family I haven't seen in a long time. I just want to wow them and show some of them up lol

Here too. I've been there, done that the last time I lost the weight. And hardly anyone has noticed this time (25lbs down) so I am just doing it for me and the sake of a clothing size I want to wear again :D

When I reach my goal WATCH OUT WORLD. I'm gonna go on a shopping spree (I've been saving my macy's gift cards all year) I will flaunt my new body every where haha (in a classy way, i'm married, with a child) I want to plan a big beach vacation as soon as I get to my "goal" because I know I will feel awesome and I will get to have a real vacation with my family. Thats what I want! haha Off topic. but I think I will plan a girls night out with all of my friends from high school and post pictures all over facebook that I know other people will look at and they will hopefully think wow way to go Andrea!

Fun question.

Everyone but no one in particular. Currently, I've lost 48 lbs and the amount of play I'm getting from guys is incredible. When I started losing weight last september, I lost about 32 lbs or so fairly quickly. Then nothing for about nine months. During this time, I guess it wasn't enough for anyone to take me out of the really fat girl category. Guess getting down to a size 18 women's still qualified me as being a big girl. I recently started losing again and am currently 12 pounds post plateau and all of a sudden I am weighing 184 lbs and comfortably fitting MOST size 16 missy sizes and people I haven't seen in a while are gushing over how good I look and how well I'm taking care of myself.

Plus wow, I'm getting "play" from the fellas like I haven't seen in YEARS. LOL! Just the other day, I went for an interview at the same place I've been going to the doctor for years, and this guy at the reception desk asked me out to dinner as I was signing in. Now this same guy has been seeing me for years and has even struck up conversations with me from time-to-time, but he has never given me the time of day with regard being attracted to me. So a few days ago, it was like he was seeing me for the very first time.

A couple days ago, as I was out walking for exercise. Dang if this guy didn't almost run into a pole straining to get a better look at me as he was turning the corner. I'm like "dude" I don't even know you and watch where you're going. He was just a grinning and a waving the whole time he was outta his lane. Lol!

You guys I am almost 51 one and single and have been unattached for a very long time so I am having a blast with this. Right now I am half way to my goal weight with about 44 lbs to go. And if I look this good now, I cannot even imagine what kind of reaction I'll cause when I get down to 140 lbs.

Goodness!

Side thought: At that weight and being about 5'4" it makes me wonder what size I'll be wearing.

I don't have a specific person, but I'm excited to go to my 10 year reunion next summer. I was always the chunky girl (in the 170's) in high school... well liked by everyone, but never thought of as more than "friend" material. I've been happily married for 5 years and have two young babies, but it will be nice to surprise some old classmates. :)

I want to run into my ex, who told me that he no longer found me attractive (right in the middle of sex), and later left me for another woman. I want him to look at me, confident, sexy, and thin, and regret that.

Ya my best friend. I moved away over the summer and the last time I saw her was in early July. She has gained a lot of weight over the summer and I have lost weight. The difference is that last year when she was on the losing side she would make a point oftexting me every time she lost weight and brag about her weight loss everyday. Now when I lose weight I never say anything to her I can't wait to catch up with her in a few weeks and just have her see me!

Wow, what an a$$! :mad: You are doing great, and I can't wait to hear that you made him eat those words.

I had an ex who was almost as rude. He'd go on and on about this girl he saw at a party that he went to without me (because I was too busy staying home taking care of our newborn daughter) to his brother while we were all out driving. He couldn't stop saying how hot she was with her little mini skirt and big rack...like I wasn't in the car listening. I said, "You know, when I get this baby weight off and can start exercising, I could look like that, too." His response? "Yeah right!" Said while rolling his eyes towards his brother. This coming from a guy who was at least 50 pounds overweight himself. Jerk!

I think I would have wanted him to eat more than his words after that one.... start adding almond extract to all his food, he might have decided to be a little nicer. Women can be really insensitive sometimes, but really? Really?

Ok, rant over. Had to get that out.

I'm sorry, but I'm totally confused by your post to my quote. I really can't tell whose side you are on by what you've said. And what does almond extract have to do with anything?

I'm not sure, But I have two ideas... one Almond Extract is very bitter....and I believe it's also the cyanide aspect of almonds I think.

I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing my parents. The last time they saw me was back at the end of July at about 181 lbs. I have lost 7lbs since the beginning of September and am pushing to lose an additional 13 lbs by the time Thanksgiving comes around and I see my Mom and Dad for the first time since July. I know no matter what I lose they are going to say I look great but I just want it to be REALLY noticeable and I want them to be PROUD.

I know it realllllllllly bothers my dad that I am overweight. I think it just makes him sad because he knows its not healthy and that I can't be happy overweight (he is pretty much right). I'm SO excited for my dad to hug me and take me aside and say I look great. He will be subtle about it because he is not one to talk about my "business" in front of others but it's going to be the best feeling in the world! I truly cannot wait, it brings tears to my eyes. I'm so excited to be the new me that I LOVE!!!

All my ex's who were embarrassed to be seen out with me. But one ex in particular, he wasn't embarrassed I don't think but fitness was the most important part of his life. He's a fitness instructor in the prison service, the district champion in Indoor rowing, in other words a fitness nut. At that point (A year ago) I was very overweight and hated exercise, so we weren't compatible at all and we broke up. I would like to see him and show him what he's missing out on as I've already lost 28lbs since the middle of June.

Oh my goodness! There are so many people from my past that I would love to have eat their heart's out. All the guys in High School for one. All the people who said I could never be thin. The guy who used me and treated me like crap. All the girls who used to turn their noses up at me. I could go on and on about that, lol.

I, myself, try not to base my thoughts and feelings on "showing" someone up. I had a really rough childhood in school (assaults, bullying, etc) for most of my school life (grade 1 through 12 anyway) and there were many people I used to wish I could show how awesome I am at whatever time I was feeling that emotion. But I doubt in the end it would matter much to them and since they they mean so little to me now, really nothing more than background information in my life, I can't think of many I would really like to stick it to.

Except one.

One girl who used to be my best friend, and who stabbed me in the back repeatedly, while smiling to my face. The girl who, when I finally moved from that h*llhole town, had to then do everything I had been doing (after learning about it through my younger sister, who was best friends with this girl's new best friend's sister). When I took violin lessons, SHE signed up for lessons with the SAME teacher on the SAME day (an hour later) than me. When I was taking Japanese in high school, she took it in university. I had gone Goth in grade 9 (while still friends with her), but after she graduated, she's now Goth/punk. I moved to Vancouver, now she's in Vancouver.

I used to be friends with her on Facebook and then I thought "why? What has she ever done for me?"

Three years after I left the town we lived in, and 3 years after she sent me an angry e-mail hoping I was killed, and praying that I was bullied in my new school, and telling me that WHEN I came "crawling" back to the old town, she'd never be friends with me, she called me and apologized, but on the condition that I admitted I did things to her. She couldn't name one bad thing I'd ever done for her because I was -always- there for her. The other thing that annoys me about her, and perhaps factors into my desire to "best" her, is that she has the same name as I do, and growing up we were always compared to one another by EVERYONE. She always got straight A's, I always got C's and B's. Even my own mother asked me when I was 7 why I couldn't be more like her, while at THEIR house, in front of her parents, and my response (I remember very clearly while playing with their nativity set) was "Because I'm me, and not her." Even now, if mom hears any gossip about this girl, she tells me. I don't want to hear it. One part of me wishes she just never existed in my life. The other part wants to rub every good thing that's happened to me in her face.

More than getting thin though, I want to get my higher education - get my education as a respiratory therapist, and then an anesthesia assistant. And then re-friend her on Facebook, so she can see how truly awesome I am.

And how none of her negativity ever held me back.
