For me it's being healthy and fit enough to run / play with my nieces without feeling winded or tired.

Hi, all,

I love reading your "Little Things" and I can SO relate! My biggest problem is my waistline. I feel like I am being cut in half, even when wearing something that fits perfectly everywhere else on me.

Right now, I have been putting off dressing to go shopping, because my "going out" clothes feel too tight. For now, elastic waistbands will have to do, but I so look forward to being comfortable tucking my blouse in!

I will work hard, today, cycling and lifting, to get there!

In my case I can't wait to be able to cross my legs. I want to be able to sit at work and fold my legs comfortably. Kinda feel sexy doing that!

Short term, I can't wait to fit all the clothes sitting in my closet all these years. Long term, I dream of the day I can buy clothes from the normal section and to be able to wear the cute bras instead of sports bras and granny bras lol

I can't wait to wear a belt again and wear tigger fitting shirts without my belly fat shining through. I cant wait to see my waist again. But most of all I can't wait to say " I did it!" I did it!

I can't wait to be able to cross my legs (haven't been able to do that since like 9th grade), be able to shop in a non plus-size store, or heck, even be able to easily find clothes *in* a plus sized store. My ginormous hips make it near impossible to find pants!

I also really, really, *really* want to see the day where I can see my own feet without leaning forward.

There's a similar thread to this in another forum (Weight Loss Support Forum?); and I posted in there that I am so glad that my legs don't rub together anymore. So, here's a TIP for all of you that have this problem: I really believe the reason is that I do "thigh presses" a few times a week. I learned to do these in a gym many, many years ago.

THIGH PRESSES ~ since I don't have the machine like at the gym, I created my own -- just lay on your back on your bed, bend your knees, and squeeze your thighs together. OK, I know this sounds weird/naughty ladies, but you know what I mean: open and close your legs ... I started at 10 and worked my way up to 25 or more, as you want.


My dream desire is to see my "tummy" gone ... can't wait!

I can't wait to wear sleeveless shirts/dresses. I hate having to put on a cardigan or the like all the time. It's hot in Texas...it would be nice to wear something without sleeves.

Also, I can't wait to have a wardrobe that doesn't mainly consist of shirts with elastic at the bottom to hide this spare tire im lugging around.

I can't wait until I am seen as a person first and foremost and not a fat person.

I've been doing the C25K programme. I'm really looking forward to having better stamnia and being able to walk up a hill with something resembling a normal heart beat.

I feel like high heels should be more comfortable if I weigh less. Make sense to me! I can't wait to be able to buy boots without paying a fortune for wide calf in real leather. That may never happen because I have really muscular legs, but I'm going to try!!

I can't wait to feel good having my husband watch me undress at night (which I know he likes to do), instead of rushing to do it before he comes in the room.

I can't wait to be able to wear short sleeve shirts and tank tops and not be self conscious about my arms. Also, I would love to be able to wear shorts and cute dresses, without obsessing how gross my legs look. And I also can't wait to have a slimmer face... I hate my chubby cheeks.

And most of all, I can't wait for my boyfriend to really notice that I've slimmed down. I've gained about 30 lbs since we started dating, which was 4 years ago. It would be nice to look better than when he first met me.

I'm looking forward to be able to wear tighter fitting clothes, so my singing teacher (and judges at different competitions) can see how well I support my singing with my body!
And to be able to wear a fairly tight-fitting t-shirt that slightly, just slightly, reveals the stomach, and a pair of skinny jeans to go with it - without it looking.. wrong.. :P
