100 lb. Club - Who "especially" do you want to show yourself off to when you reach goal?
01-07-2006, 02:21 PM
Another fun/immature thread idea...Borrowed idea from 3FC...
Who do you want to especially show yourself off to? And Why?
Who:My ex husband
Why? Just because I want to see the look on his face. It will be priceless.
Who: My sisters mother in-law
Why? She told me last time I saw her "Wow, you've really gained weight this year, what are you doing?"
Who: My grandmother
Why: Just because I know my weight bothers her. She never says it, but she comments on others weight.

Honestly the only person I want to show myself off to is me! :) I know other people will notice but for me it's about me turning 40 this coming summer and wanting to be healthier, thinner and happier in my 40's than I was in my 20's & 30's. I know my parents will be thrilled though because they'd always seems worried and a little ashamed of my weight. I know they will worry less about me when I'm thinner.
Good thread idea btw!

I want to show off to myself because I've never been close to thin, and even now that I started (it hasn't been long), I catch myself looking more in the mirror and feeling good about myself. I want to show off to my parents because I know they want it just as bad as I do and they will be so proud of me. I want to show off to all the guys who wouldn't even look my way- You couldn't have me then, and you sure as heck can't have me now! :devil:

Well, myself and my Dh for one, I want to feel good naked, lol! I want to fit into the dress that my girlfriend wore to a NYE party. I used to be able to wear sexy dresses like that, this year, the only thing that would fit sat in my closet while I vegged at home with my Dh because I refused to go out looking like crap!

Mostly, I want to show off to myself. I have never been thin my adult life so that would be a great accomplishment for me. Being able to go into the store and to pick off of the rack and it fit. No more shopping in the Plus side department. Actually, feeling like I can wear some stylish clothes.
Plus, showing off to the ex hubby isn't that bad of an idea either. He was never very good at giving encouragement. He used to say , " You can't do it"< "Just face it, you were meant to be fat." "Not another diet>" I want to show off and prove that I can do it. I am not a failure.
Also I have this fear that my children might be embarrassed of me with their friends and I don't want that. I want to be a good role model and I know weight doesn't have anything to do with being a good role model but I know I would feel better about myself and that would give me a great boost with self confidence. And I can get out there and be an active mom and not just a bump on the log.

I want to show myself to absolutely everyone but to myself in particular.
01-07-2006, 06:11 PM
My mum, because she really worries about me, and never thought I would actually get the weight off, not to gloat, but just to show her that I love her and myself enough to do this.
I'd love to show myself to everyone whoever teased me at high school, who jeered at me in gym class, who made me feel like a fat loser!
01-07-2006, 06:29 PM
not saying that I don't want to look good for my dh.. and have energy for my children - but I'm doing it all for ME! :strong:
01-07-2006, 09:49 PM
I want to get every man that ever rejected me, every person that ever called me fat or overweight into a room and walk in to show them that I can get skinny but they will always be single minded and arrogant. Then I want to go home and show my skinny butt to my always supportive bf!
01-07-2006, 10:03 PM
hmm,.. there are so many people, but foremost on my mind at this point is the cousin that called me a few years ago to tell me I should get gastric bypass because the weight is putting my life on hold.
Then, everyone I went to high school with, and then my in-laws ;)
01-07-2006, 10:18 PM
I wouldn't mind showing everyone in high school... however, it's flawed since I was skinny and they still called me fat. I'd kinda like to beat them all for convincing me that a size 5-6 is fat!
I'd like to say I'm doing this all for myself, and my also supportive bf, but he doesn't care about my size. I'm doing this to fit in, to look good by society's standards, and definitely so I have more shopping options!!
01-07-2006, 10:29 PM
Well, I want to show myself most of all because I have always been overweight and I can't wait to show myself that I can do it. But then there was my first love who I wanted to be with so badly and although he never had a problem sneaking to see me and hiding our relationship, when I told him that I wanted us to be together he said he wasn't marriage material........he was married to someone else a year later.
I also want to show my mother because she feels the need to constantly tell me how I need to lose weight and it is tiring. And my 71 year old grandmother who has been dieting as long as I've known her, to show her that you don't have to do some crazy diet to lose weight but that you can do it and still enjoy your food.

Myself and my Husband for a big one!!
I can't wait to not be nervous about being naked in front of him!
01-08-2006, 01:50 AM
Soon as I reach goal weight I'm getting pictures taken. They better keep that camera snapping for all the times I said no to my picture being taken.
I think I'll have to go with a lot of the crowd and say.. myself. There isn't any one person that I'd like to show off to.. cept .. me. The only reason I really want to lose weight is so that I can be happy. I wouldn't mind being able to stay overweight and be happy and be like "Hah.. forget you.. I'm overweight and I'm uh.. all that. I WIN!" Yeah. :P

My family... My grandpa always makes fat comments....
Kris... I also would like to feel good naked
The Evil nasty *****es from high school at my 5 year reunion....
01-08-2006, 03:24 AM
there are quite a few whose faces i'd like to see once i lose the weight but my main person is also myself because i know its possible and i know i can do it and once i do it that will be the best "i told you so" ever.
01-08-2006, 05:29 AM
The woman I see every morning in the mirror.
01-08-2006, 06:19 PM
Id have to say me first.
THEN....my ex husband!! lol. He never said anything about my weight, but was always buying me donuts, candy bars and soda. I think he was TRYING to keep me fat!!
01-08-2006, 08:32 PM
ex husband is a good one but i sooooooooooooo don't give even half a fat rat's behind about mine or anything involving him. LOL
01-08-2006, 11:04 PM
Me. And everyone else. :)
01-08-2006, 11:20 PM
My family - I am always the fat sister, cousin, daughter etc
My friends from high school; especially the so called ones that snickered at me behind my back
My co workers - like the above - those who have made smart comments I am not suppose to hear
01-09-2006, 08:54 AM
Oooh, there's a few... but I will probably never see them again in my life.
My Aunt, who when I was around 10 years old told my mother that I will be fat just like her...
My ex-friend the ***** who betrayed me in the worst manner possible just because she was jealous of my life and the fact that I was down 45lbs at her wedding and she had gained them!!
Most of all, I just like the look on people faces when I wear something new that really accentuates my new curves. My chest hasn't really changed much, but my waist is really tiny, I've stopped people in their tracks!
01-09-2006, 11:14 AM
I can't really think of anyone in particular I would like to say hey look at me now. I really am doing this for me this time around.
01-09-2006, 11:51 AM
It's all about me! :) The only person, aside from my family, that I'd want to show off my new figure and health for would be my doctor. And it'd only be to say "You were right, I can do this, and I'm healthier for it!"
