Default After I lose weight I will....

I just started IP 11 days ago so I have many months to reach my goal. As I travel the journey, I want to keep in mind those daily real life reasons that I should stay on program and reach my goal. After I lose weight I will:
- be able to breathe as I tie my sneakers or fasten my dance shoes
- have a waist that will make it more comfortable to wear a skirt -- suits will return to my wardrobe!
- actually consider something sleeveless as a possible item of apparel that I would wear in public
- be able to carry 10lbs of cat litter upstairs without wondering if I will get to the top
- not have as much knee pain
- I will be willing to don a costume for amateur dance competition... losing the fear of looking like a pink sausage on the dance floor
- probably not wake up so often with my hands asleep
- be able to see my toes without bending over to see past my belly
- walk into a room full of people and not bet that I am the largest person in the room
.....

How about you? What daily life activities will you find less intimidating after you lose weight?

so true! I avoid cameras all the time, and volunteer to take the pix rather than being in them -- how nice it will be to just join in and smile!

shopping!!! love to get out of the Plus size retailers!!

and anything involving nudity, full or partial.... been trying to avoid all that for years!

I will enjoy air travel. I want to be able to book a flight to some exotic destination and not be completely miserable while crammed into a 17" seat on a booked to capacity plane for the duration of the 8 hour flight.

I'm also looking forward to fitting behind the steering wheel of my class C motorhome and into the dinette more comfortably.

.... keep it off!

That will be my biggest challenge. Oneuh2, about the "hands falling asleep" comment, I just got diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and that is a major indicator. I never knew -- just thought my hands always went asleep. Just want you to maybe look into that if needed so you can do exercises for your wrists etc and catch it early so surgery is not necessary

- Hope to be no longer diabetic
- Get on amusement park rides with my kids and not worry if I will fit.
- Same with airplane seats.
- Wear high heels without all the weight killing my feet.
- Wear reg sized clothing and not just shoe shop when shopping with my reg sized friends.
- Wear a bathing suit without being humiliated.
- No longer be the largest person in the room.

In addition to my health, these are the things I focus on since starting IP.

-I used to hope to get pregnant but now I hope I DON'T lol
-Walking up stairs or a hill without huffing and puffing would be nice
-Having energy, stamina and ability to do things while I'm still young -- like play with my kids, travel, look hot
-I want to run into my old boyfriend, but not until I look hot enough that he will be "look what I could have had" and be sad about it, not happy LOL

This. Except my youngest is 4, and I have cringed at my picture since gaining weight. I tried to suck it up (haha...the gut that is!) and still be in SOME pictures because I read a lot of "feel good about yourself no matter what" articles that insist you be in pictures as evidence you were, in fact, a part of your children's lives - but never could hang any of those up as a portrait above the fireplace or anything.

Great thread. I share so many of those things that I want/need to do but haven't been because of the weight.
