    Here I have made a list of things I will miss when I lose weight. But also below them are the alternatives.

    - Ill never get the front seat on a car journey anymore.
    But at least I'll be able to fit in a back seat

    - My female friends wont want to cuddle me as much
    Instead they'll want to rub genitals.

    - I'll get my ass handed to me on the rugby pitch
    Find a better position where you score tries rather than get beat up and watch the more slimmer players get the glory.

    - People don't start fights with me coz I am a big lad
    If people do start fights ill be able to run away.

    - When playing wrestling with my housemates 4 year old who by the way does an awesome knee drop to the back, there is something so damn funny about saying "In the blue corner, at 3ft high and 40lbs.... Sammy!!!" then in a more sombre voice "ANNNNND in the red corner, at 5ft11, and weighing in at 357lbs...... the defending heavyweight living room champion of the world/galaxy/universe..... Sulleyp".

    It just wont sound the same being "ANNNNND in the red corner, at 5ft11, and weighing in at 217lbs....."

    His dad won't have to take him to the hospital when I mistime a belly flop from the sofa again.

    I won't get out of breath by going up stairs because I'm overwight.
    Instead people will realise I am just unfit

    I will have some muscle definition for people to see instead of claiming I work out and that you can't see the results
    People CAN see the results and know full well I don't work out.

    The downside Im finding is..... spending money buying new clothes lol!
    and when people look at me I wonder what they're looking at - before I presumed they were just looking at me cos I was fat! mine arent funny like your reasons though lol xxx

    Hmmm that is very true. Now they are looking at your clothes and judging your fashion rather than your fat. And tbh Id rather be known as being unfashionable than fat.
