    What you are going to look like when you hit target.

    I dont know if anyone else is in the same boat, but i have always been over weight, maybe since i was about 13-14 or so, so as my body was changing i never really got a chance to see what was under the flab.
    So as it stands i really have no idea what my body type is like!

    Just something i have been thinking about lol

    I'm so looking forward to reaching my target.
    My target is actually higher than what I weighed when I was 19, but looking back, at the time I was CONVINCED I was fat. I found my Year 13 Prom Dress the other day, and it was a small size 10. It'll be really nice to reach target and actually look at myself and be happy with the way I look, and realise that I'm not fat!

    I started gaining weight when I was about 2 years old as my mother tells me I have absolutely no idea what I am like under this thick layer of blubber! I'm looking forward to discovering where my knees are and if my hips really are where I think they are. People always tell me I'm bigged boned but I think that's a bit of a cop out and most people that are quite overweight think the same thing. As Allie has discovered that is not always the case so I can't wait to discover what size frame I am.

    One thing I am not looking forward to though is all the extra skin I know I am going to have - I've only lost 3 stone and got way to many to count left to lose and the skin on the top of my thighs is already really loose so its going to be a huge issue for me. I think its quite sad that we go through all this heartache and pass so many difficulties just to feel unhappy in our bucket load of extra skin.

    On the plus size, hubby has promised me once I get to target he'll pay for what ever surgery is needed to make me fit my over stretched skin. ;)

    I think i have a bit on an advantage on that as i am only 21 and my skin is still pretty springy. i started at the gym this week and the traininer there hase given me 5 or 6 toning exersizes which she says will hopfully elimintae most of the problem, she aslo to me to drink plenty of water and exfoliate often, i am getting close to the 2.5 stone mark and (touch wood!) i haven't noticed anything yet!

    There's a website where you can upload your pic and then set your desired weight and it shows you what you'll look like at goal. I've printed off my pic and stuck it on the biccie cupboard door! Only thing I don't like about the pic is that they've even taken weight off my nose! :confused:

    I agree and actually find the thought quite scary. I've always been big but started getting fat before I was 10 I think so like many of you I have no idea what my body shape will be. At the moment all I can see is the rolls of skin I'll have which means even if I'm at an acceptable weight I still won't look normal. It's actually quite off putting as I lose weight I hate the way I look more. I know I have loads more to lose and that it might get a bit better but right now all I can see is where the problems will be. Like Alia my thighs are actually worse now than when they were full of fat, when I go swimming I can feel all the wobbly skin going crazy in the water.:( My stomach is just as bad and didn't bother me so much when it was padded with fat. Now I can actually grab handfuls of it and it's very annoying. Funny though because my husband thinks I'm looking much better. Perhaps it's just my mind trying to mess with me. I guess there's always surgery if needed.

    Hitting target actually worries me all my adult life I have been dieting aiming for a certain but when I get there what do I aim for silly I know.
    The other thing is I have no idea what my ideal weight is I'm aiming for 9.13 but I don't know if this is it. when I was a teen I was a 10-12 but I think I used to squeeze into these instead of fitting in them. I remember having a flat tummy but I hadn't had children but my thighs where always big.
    maybe I need to find my photos out.

    Thanks for that weightloss thing I think it's probably helpful for people who don't have loads to lose. For me I just look like more of a freak.:8855:It's thinned my bottom half out but left me with a fat top half, the look isn't good but gives a bit of an idea. :)

    Interesting thread. I do have to wonder the same. I wasn't a big child, or teenager (I was never skinny, but I certainly wasn't over weight), and I've recently been seeing my body start to change again (for the better) and it dawned on me that I don't really remember what my body looked like when I was a size 10/12 (9.5-10.5 stone) - and then suddenly (!) it was a size 22! lol I'm back to a 16 (18 on top, often) and starting to like what I'm seeing, but I can't imagine how it looked BEFORE the skin was filled up with excess fat! hahaha I hope to find out what size 12 looks like by this xmas though....

    As for target - I'm glad to see i'm not alone in not having a clue! No point using BMI, I think it wants to make me about three stone six or something! lol But equally, I don't think it's realistic for a 30 year old woman to aspire to her 16 year old weight? So I'm aiming to be a size 12 in clothes (although 14 on top will be fine, I am rather chesty ;-)) and will set my target when I feel I'm nearly there.

    Just had a bit of a moment today, i was talking to my mum about a dress that i want, i have said that i am going to get it when i am a size 12 and she just laughted and said "you will never be a size 12" which i would have agreed with before becuase all my life she has said i was"big boned" or "just not ment to be skinny" which actaully kinda hurts now. maybe i never never going to besupermodle skinny (and i would never want to be anyway) but my mum seems to be set taht i will never be smaller than a size 16/18 :s

    I am going to give that web site a go though :D

    try not to be too offended by what your mum said, she probably didnt mean it to sound hurtful, if i were you id use her comments as motivation :) one day you WILL be size 12 and you will buy that dress and look AMAZING! you show her!

    regards to that website, i tried it, all it did was sucked in my waist and left my hips, thighs and boobs massive - i looked ridiculous! hope you have more look with it than me :D xx

    I can't wait to see what I look like! Like a lot of people on here I have been big since I was quite young (about 9 for me) so I have no idea what I will look like at my goal weight. I'm aiming for a size 12, but who knows eh?!
    I've lost two stone now and I've started to get a waist and collar bones :p ;)

    I KNOW! I thought I had a dirty mark on my neck a few weeks ago - upon closer inspection, it was my collar bones, or rather, the dimples next to them! lol I'm entranced by them - I didn't even realise they were invisible until they reappeared! Has to be the most amusing thing that's happened to my changing body! hehehehe:8855:I keep posing in the mirror, at funny angels, just to check they're still there! :eek:
