I will not miss:
- Being the biggest girl in my family
- Having to dismiss clothes I think are cute because they wouldn't look good on a "fat" person
- Worrying about making sure my 'bulge' is hidden at all times
- Not being able to water ski because my wrist can't hold up my weight
- my pants wearing out because my legs are rubbing together
- looking like the goodyear tire man in pictures

I won't miss:
- Finding all these cute clothes in the junior section.. only to find a few in my size.. and then not liking how I look in it
- Feeling like I have to work twice as hard to be memorable/liked
- Feeling like I'm being judged purely off of my weight
- Feeling like I NEED makeup b/c of the weight in my face, and the rest of my body
- Having to cover up
- Not feeling comfortable to jump/run around with my friends
- Sucking it in (oh man will I not miss that!)
- Feeling ashamed, then comforting myself with food, then feeling worse about it afterwards
- Feeling tired
- Feeling like the outcast/"big" girl of the group
- Wanting to be thin for when I meet my boyfriend's best friends (he loves me and my weight but still.. I want to be the "total" package haha)

I'm already becoming a lot more confident, I have a lot more energy, and I'm starting to feel more average as a person, and I no longer eat when I'm bored or eat emotionally. In fact, now I clean/organize when I feel good, write when I feel bad, and stopped abusing food. I really can't wait until I hit my goal! But this list.. yeah it's going to help me from going back!

What a great post idea! My list could go on for years... here's some top ones:
I will not miss my stomach bumping up out of the bath water
I will not miss jeans and sweatshirts at the beach
I will not miss shopping for shoes and accessories while all my friends try on clothes
I will not miss beige bras
I will not miss tent shirts
I will not miss weighing more than my boyfriend

I will not miss:

* Muffin top

* Back fat, and having to try to conceal it by moving my bra straps around to smoosh it down.

* Only having one or two outfits which look decent on me

* Buying XXL T-shirts & sweaters to hide my bulk, muffin top, & back fat

* Hiding in the back in group pictures

* Carefully editing all pictures with me in them: cropping those that I can to make me look better, and deleting the ones I can't "fix"

* Having to try and pose in a flattering angle for an individual pic

* Empire waist tops

* Looking like the Michelin Man when I sit, and all the rolls of fat stack up on top of each other.

* Feeling like my head would pop off from the pressure when I bend over to tie my shoes or pick something up off the floor.

* Having red marks on my legs at the end of the day from wearing too-tight pants, because I refuse to buy a bigger size & the creases dig into my skin when I sit

* Fearing my pants may split at the seams at any moment because they really are too tight for me (see above)

* Chub rub (thighs)

* Thinking that some cute guy could never be interested in me because of my size.

And the list could go on and on.....

This is a great thread, I just couldn't agree more. There are lots of things on here that I thought were just me and it's very nice to see that it isn't. Especially

-seeing the weights of professional male athletes, and knowing I weigh more (UGH!)

I weigh more than lots of rugby players at about 12 stone (british), so every time I hear about the superior weight of the England pack I just cringe ...

Also, I can't sit on my boyfriend's knee even though he would like me to. The shame!

But the key one has to be looking around a room and confirming that I am the fattest girl there - the only women who weigh more are much older. I just don't want to be the fat one any more.

Others:

- seeing bikinis in the shop that look great, and then realising I could never wear them and feeling stupid for looking
- trying to hold my head up all the time in photos so my double chin doesn't show
- making my boyfriend delete nearly all the pictures he takes of me
- constantly holding my stomach in
- waistband of my jeans cutting into me when I sit down
- feeling like other people must be laughing at me when I exercise
- always having to look for the biggest size in "young" clothes shops, and even that not being big enough sometimes
- never being able to wear skinny jeans
- feeling other people are judging what I eat
- being pitied by my sisters and friends (or feeling like I am)

I could go on but I won't ...

This is my favorite thread on here so far, although I have only discovered this site a short time ago. It makes me realize that I am not alone and that we all have common fears, disgusts and things we won't miss at all! Thanks for the extra motivation everyone!!

Another thing I won't miss is being asked stupid questions on job interviews like am I sure I can stand for long periods of time and bend etc. And then not even getting the job which could or could not be because of my weight.

Oh yea and I won't miss being so sweaty. It seems like walking for 5 seconds makes me sweat.

I forgot to mention two others:

* Feeling bad & overly self-conscious about how I look

* Ordering two drinks at the drive-through so they won't think all that food is just for me (even though it was)

I will not miss crying every time I read this thread!
I will not miss Chub-Rub as Apple Cheeks so lovingly put it
I will not miss hating every picture my beautiful photographer boyfriend takes of me.
I will not miss weighing more than him, and how self conscious I feel about crushing him when he wants to play around.
I will not miss staying in my dorm room instead of playing campus-wide hide and seek, because I was too out of shape to have fun with it.
I will not miss having to buy jeans three sizes too big in the waist just so they'll fit over my thighs.
I will not miss dressing masculine, because feminine stuff doesn't look good on me.
I will not miss how badly my lungs hurt because they're so out of shape.
I will not miss 'sucking it in'
I will not miss how uncomfortable it is to climb in large vehicals because my jeans are too tight, and they squish my belly and my thighs, and pinch in uncomfortable places, WHILE I'm worried about them ripping, or flashing 'crack' to poor stand-by people.

I love this thread too, (hahah i should right?) but I just love how although it should be all negative stuff that we're talking about, I think the positive aspect is heightened bc we are all able to laugh at ourselves and say --yeah this is embarrassing, but look it's going through the minds of all girls who are all different sizes. I think it feels good to finally let it all out and just say what you can't stand about yourself any more. I know for me, I was in denial about these things being that bad. Now I look around and think- I do NOT like feeling this way . Something has got to change!

ooh let me add one more

-looking at the back of my thighs (cellulite) and knowing that ppl on the beach will be looking at my thigh butt area thinking "ew gross, that girl has old lady thighs). Grrrr! makes me mad! I store all my cellulite there.

I won't miss feeling self-conscious all.the.time.

I wont miss tugging at my shirt to pull it down while tugging at my pants to pull them up. (I've given many the plumbers bum - oops!)

I won't miss thinking that I look good and then seeing a picture taken of me and feeling the complete opposite.

I won't miss going through an entire mall and not finding a single thing that looks good on me. That is if they even had my size to begin with.

Oh and this one is a newbie that may just have been one of my silly traits:
I won't miss bumping my hips and bum into stuff. Railings, doorways, tables... (I've cut down on the klutziness considerably! )
