... take a shower with my sweetie and not have to worry about it being too crowded

... get on an airplane and not have to worry about whether or not the seat belt will fit

... get a tattoo on my butt and be proud to show it off

... lay in the tub and not have MY sides touch THE sides

... be able to get out of the shower and wrap a towel around myself -- all the way around -- and not have to hold it together

... wear a leather thong and look damn good in it

... throw out all my ugly, moo-moo clothes

... get into the row boat at the lake and not have it be impossible for my sweetie to push off from shore


... wear a bathing suit without a skirt

... make love up against a wall with my legs wrapped around my honey's waist

... lay in the baby's swimming pool -- and still leave room for other people

... park in a tight spot and be able to get out of the car

... take the stairs at work

... hang-glide, parasail or bungee jump (can't now because, in those instances, lying about your weight can have dire consequences)

... wear a sexy Halloween costume

... wear a skirt with no pantyhose without my thighs rubbing together

I love your idea to post things you would like to do and many of them have been things that I wanted also. Breathe really struck me because that is what motivated me to begin this journey. I was sitting in my van, just sitting, and I was so uncomfortable and finding it kind of difficult to breathe. It felt much like it did when I was very pregnant with my kids and there just wasn't enough room for my lungs to expand, except I wasn't pregnant I was just FAT!! That was at the end of February this year and I've lost 30 lbs so far!! You hang in there girl you will make it!! ;)

get my belly button pierced (not sure if I'm brave enough though :^: )

get a tattoo

wear a bikini

go skydiving!! (I've always wanted to do that)

feel comfortable in my clothes (started seeing that already, but would like to feel it in a smaller size)

-not be worried to show my tummy a little ;)

I'll play.

I want the safety bars of the rollercoasters at Six Flags to go down more than one click.

I want to not feel like I'm wedging myself into the seats at a movie theater.

Same as above with a booth at a restaurant.

I want to be able to walk into a store that sells woman's clothing, and not have to start looking to see if they have a plus sizes section!

I want to ...

-be too small to wear my wedding gown, instead of too big.

-be able to run around after my kids at the park for the full hour or more that we're there, instead of having to sit down after only about 5 minutes.

-enjoy having sex with the lights on.

-wear gorgeous lingerie.

-get the tattoos I've wanted since my kids were born.

-buy the feminine, pretty, flirty and floaty clothes that I adore, but rarely look good in now.

-know that my husband's friends and coworkers are jealous of him about me ;).

-have people be surprised to learn that I have two young children who are less than 18 months apart in age.

-be too small to shop at Lane Bryant.

-be able to buy a chocolate bar as a treat without getting accusing looks from people who think I'm too fat to be indulging in a chocolate bar as an occassional treat.

Heh heh... I'm with ya there, Morticia. I always say that that is why the good Lord keeps me fat: If I were thin, I would never have clothes on. I would never be able to hold down a job or go to church or even out in public without causing a scene BECAUSE I WOULD NEVER HAVE ANY CLOTHES ON!

Well here's to NAKEDNESS!!!! :lol:

Oooh.. some steamy ones on here! I like to think that my size doesn`t hold me back but there are for sure things that I would like...

- Not to automatically assume when I'm rejected that it has something to do with my weight

- Learn to eat so that food is not constantly on my mind. I've spent too much of my time worrying about that.

- Jog a 5k without stopping to rest

- Stop looking at older pictures of myself when I was (slightly) thinner and feel jealous

- Not have to factor in back fat when it comes to bra size

- Wear fitting dresses without having to smooth out everything underneath with huuuge granny panties & body shapers

- Appear in pictures without having to strategically position myself behind something/someone

ooh.. I thought of another one...

I want to sit down on the couch and not have/want a pillow or jacket in my lap covering up my belly.

I want to...

...look down and see my boobs stick out farther than my tummy for once.

...power walk in my neighborhood and not see my shadow jiggling so much.

...behave myself when eating at restaurants and get-togethers.

...be at my goal weight before I have to renew my photo ID. (I'd love to smack the perfect weight right on there!)

I want to . . .

- wear a bikini, like everyone else ;)

- run a mile in under 10 minutes

- shop at the boutique I always walk past on my way home, which has gorgeous clothes on display, but I always think "I need to be a little thinner to shop there still"

- hike half dome in Yosemite (this is a far-off goal, since I'm not even in CA anymore)

- I'd love to not have my thighs rub together, but I don't think my body is built so that that will happen unless I'm unhealthily thin!

I originally wanted to be able to bend down and tie my own shoes. Now, at 6 months pregnant, I wanna do that again. LOL
