Default Things I can do now that I'm thinner...

I thought I'd put a positive spin on this, maybe it'll help us to realize how far we've come

things I can do now...what are yours?

1) wear normal jewelry, necklaces & anklets
2) wear normal clothes and not have to go to the fat lady section
3) hold my head high when I talk and not be embarassed that the person I'm talking to has to look at me.

good idea!!

I can go on the rides at the theme parks with my daughter, and not have to worry if I'll fit in the seats!

Finding clothes that fit and look awesome!!

Fit in an airline seat and buckle the seat belt without an extender.

thought of more!

1) make love easier
2) look at swimsuits without being embarrased of what people are thinking
3) go to my dd's school events without embarrasing her
4) not be embarrased to share my size when all my co-workers order matching uniforms

I can bend over and breathe at the same time.
Have more energy to do things instead of huffing and puffing after a few steps.
Look in the mirror w/out wanting to barf.
