    I'm sure all of us have a list of things that we want to be able to do when we hit our targets or get close to them, I know I have.

    So:-

    I want...

    - To sit with my legs crossed without it hurting.
    - To have more clothes than I know what to do with, and have all of them fit!
    - To be able to sit on my husband's lap.
    - To not dread having my photo taken.
    - To wear a bikini. I never have.
    - My back and knees to stop hurting.
    - To be proud of myself.
    - To break my lifelong addiction to food, and see it gone for good.

    So, what's on your "I want..." list? What are the thoughts that keep you going?

    *Be able to wear all the fashions I want to wear

    *I want nice defined shoulders
    *To be able to put on boys clothes and for them to actually be loose (like they should be on girls!!)
    *To be able to wear the "one size" tops/dresses they sell at markets. Just out of principle, not to actually wear them, but to be able to say I could!!
    *to feel sexy. I dont feel unattractive as I know im lucky to have a pretty face (dark skin, light eyes), but from head down im not happy!
    *to be able to muck around (cartwheels, crabs, playfighting) and not worry that my belly is going to hang out.
    *to be able to borrow my mum and sisters size 10-12 clothes and not feel like the fat one! (Heck!! to be able to borrow any of my friends clothes!!)

    now that I am at target I would like to be able to persuade my best friend to come back to SW as I am worried about how much weight she has put on but I don't know how to do it without offending her.

    And I still want to feel confident enough to wear a bikini for the first time in my life!

    i wants dont get!!! lol!

    i would like.....(haha)

    to be confident in my appearance, rather than having to 'clever dress' (which actually means to cover up.....!)
    to not worry when i go to the doctors that they are going to tell me my BP is too high/my BMI is too high etc.
    to not be so self aware at parties/weddings etc cos everyone else looks fab, and i dont.
    to not want to delete every photo of myself the instant i see it on the camera (anything past shoulders!!!)
    to be able to just buy knee high boots rather than having to try on every pair in the shop and then leaving cos none of them fit

    there are a million more things on the list, but i think those are my main ones!

    Great thread x
