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.


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?

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 would like.....(haha)

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!!!)
