So, what can't you do when you're overweight? Can't, as in physically and mentally. Things that you don't do, because of the weight.

You know, I haven't found much - surprisingly... although, I suppose I did use my weight as an excuse not to climb a 14,000 ft mountain with some friends last summer. But that's not something I'd do skinny either...

Now, I am FAR less outgoing than I used to be, but I blame both a bad relationship and my weight gain equally for that.

But, in general I am fairly active. I suppose that's why it's taken me so long to start losing,because I didn't really have and slaps in the face like that.

I couldn't ride a roller coaster or I could but it was more then a lot embarrassing for me to :( (I felt like everyone was staring at me, plus the guy helping me was very frustrated w/me and made me feel horrible on top of it all). Then even when I was on it the ride was very uncomfortable for me to ride on, I was so so crammed in it. Another thing I have heard horror stories about is airplanes and their seats. I don't dare (after my trouble with the roller coaster seat) go on a plane ride until I loose some weight.

Yoga head/shoulder stands. Which I enjoyed doing when I was under 200. But I dislike belly hang so that has to wait a while along with any other poses where a large belly interferes.

Zip line. I want to try it but I'm not ready to.

Um... I think that's about it. Anything else I want to do I pretty much do.

shop in stores that don't cater to 'plus size' women... can't wait to be 14 regular or smaller!

I can't cross my legs.

Yes this!!

Also the rides at amusement parks. Sit in booths at restaurants. Sit on the couch with my laptop on my legs.

Hi! I'm not losing 100+ lbs, but I would like to be down around 85-90 from my high weight eventually.

Weirdly, this is a fun thread! Mostly because I like leaving these "Can't" thing behind as I shrink.

1. I am less outgoing, and less likely to be honest with people about what I think or feel. I tend to think weird things, like that they don't want to hear it as much because I'm overweight. And I try to blend in more, like I don't want to be impolite and "inflict" my fatness on people. It's crazy and wrong, but it's mostly subconscious - I don't even notice until later... I don't think these things of others, but I expect others to think them of me. -sigh- More issues to work on.

2. I can't sit on people's laps (friends or boyfriends). I'm too heavy to be comfortable being on them like that.

3. I can't go on the see saw with friends at a park. I'm heavier than everyone I know except a couple boys who're only ~10 lbs heavier than me. Embarrassing... but I really want to do it someday. I couldn't even when I was a kid. I was like 120 lbs at 12 or something. My peers were way smaller.

I am too fat and out of shape to participate in fun recreational activities like hiking, volleyball, kayaking, etc.
