    when you are super slim?

    I have many, but I reckon my top 5 are,

    Having the energy to play with my young son properly, e.g. running etc

    feeling healthier

    gaining confidence

    looking in mirrors

    NOT being limited to shopping in outsize shops.

    :)

    I'm looking forward to:

    Feeling happier in myself, and not getting upset when I look in the mirror

    Being able to walk up to my house (which is all uphill) without getting out of breath

    To be able to go clothes shopping in more than 2 shops!

    For me to be able to eat a meal in public and not be stared at

    To get married to my partner, who has agreed we can start to look at wedding plans when I am at goal weight.

    These may well change over the course of the year lol

    You look really lovely right now, you know! I know it's fab to lose weight and all, but I hope you appreciate that you still look great at the moment - so don't let the mirror get you down!

    You'll get rid of that... healthy eating can eradicate the weight but it you can't diet your way to prettiness - you've got that naturally, so hey, be happy! :)

    Trying to teach myself good habits
    The 5 things I'm looking forward to doing. Hmm, I'd only thought of the first before (which may be the reason I keep losing my motivation).:

    1-apply to the RAF as a nursing officer (somwhere between late 2011-early 2013 I plan to do this. I need to lose weight and get fitter before then).

    2-wear a bikini at the beach (summer 2010). I have never ever done this, and would so love to.

    3-go gliding. Maximum weight, I think is around 100kg, and was borderline when I joined as a cadet. So, depite being an air cadet for years, and being involved with the organisation still as a member of staff for a few years now, I've never done this. (Goal date is October this year). Other things I've never done, such as horseriding (and maybe even a parachute jump), I would also like to try, too.

    4-do a sports course, nothing fancy, just a community sports leadership award. Our current sports person on sqn is leaving soon, and I want to take over their job. (Goal of spring next year. I want to lose weight and get fit before applying).

    5-go shopping. I do like places like New Look, Monsoon and Dorothy Perkins, but there are some nice shops near me, like Jane Norman, and other slightly posher looking ones in an outlet village not too far from me, which always have absolutely gorgeous clothes in the windows, but which would never sell clothes in my size. I would love to be able to go and buy some of those clothes every once in a while.

    I'm already on the way to one of the main things I'm looking forward to, being able to walk a up a hill without being totally out of breath.

    Last week I walked all the way from my work place near Victoria station to Peckham (well over half the way home for me!) I haven't been able to walk that far for about ten years, it was brilliant. No hills involved but it's progress.

    Other things I am looking forward to:

    2. Buying cheaper bras.

    3. Wearing a skirt and not having to worry about my thighs rubbing together and getting sore.

    4. Fewer aches and pains in all my stressed joints.

    5. Being very smug.

    No it isn't and has happened many times over my life but I want it to stop and this is the only way to achieve it. Kids will always be Kids but I don't have to be fat.
