Default 3 things I want to do....

Going to try to get some thoughts as to what everyone wants to do when they lose their weight or some thoughts that keep you motivated.....

1. Shop at a regular store not plus size
2. Fly somewhere and be comfortable in my seat
3. For my hip to stop hurting, the more I lose the less it hurts

I would like to look in the mirror and LOVE what I see
I would love to look awesome in a pair of jeans and be comfortable too.
I would love to not feel ashamed by how I look.

2. Be able to run a mile or three without collapsing.
3. Look good nekkid... *blush* ... even if it's just me looking...

There are so many, I dont know which to choose

1. Look in the mirror or see a picture of myself and not be shocked at what I see. I want the reflection of myself to match my inner self image.

2. I want to fit comfortably into seats at theatres, roller coasters, planes etc.

3. I want stamina, to be able to run with the kids, ride my bike for miles.

lastly I want to be attractive, not "OMG, look at that fat girl." This one is a biggie because it is what I have heard my whole life as I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. #1 is big also because I am continuously shocked when I look into the mirror thinking to myself "that can't be me" as that is not how I see myself. Anyone else feel like that?

My #1 is to lose the weight and reduce the pressure on my knees. I would like to put off knee replacement surgery. Unfortunately, I still have pain and take IBprophen.

#2 Is to fit in to all the smaller size clothing that I have in my closets from losing 105 pounds in 2001 and keeping most of it off until this last year when I quit walking and exercising due to my osteoarthritis.

#3 To like what I see when I have my picture taken. The pictures taken on vacation are what really motivated me to start IP immediatley after vacation even with company coming!

Please...don't ever be ashamed of being over weight This made me sad.

My three things:

1. Not have my belly roll over the top of my jeans.
2. Be happy with my body.
3. Stay at my goal after I reach it. This is my favorite one.

I agree ....I like this thread. Good idea!
1. look at pictures and say "yeah, that's me" not "OMG!! Who has seen these before I did?? Destroy!"
2. Shop at Lululemon and pick out whatever I want and not be embarrassed that it doesn't come in "my size"
3. Being able to maintain effectively and permanently!!
