    Hi Everyone,

    Was having a rather long conversation this morning with my beautiful sister in law about what we are looking forward to when we reach our weight loss goals. It was very interesting and got me thinking...and wondering, what are some of the things you are all looking forward to after you've reached your goal?
    One thing for me that springs to mind is...I'd love to see my collar bones again!!

    Lets hear some ideas!

    I just can't wait to feel good in myself. Lighter, healthier and without all the restrictions that being 'heavy' entails.

    Want to wake up in the morning and face the day head on feeling confident and be able to choose something nice to wear instead of daggy track pants and oversized tops!!
    Great response Barb. Good luck to u on your journey.

    Slimming magazine club. Out of date now but this diet worked for me in the past.
    I want to wear the clothes I see in the shops that I like best and not the ones that hide certain bits of my body.

    I agree with the love-handles bit, and this bit about buying the clothes I like, rather than the ones that flatter my bumps.

    I am also looking forward to feeling like I am "a slim person" when walking around the shops, or going into a bar. I am looking forward to being able to wear some of the clothes I used to fit when I was skinnier.

    YesIcan, I love your idea of putting away £2000 for a new wardrobe - I'm so jealous!

    Crikey :)..where do I start?????

    being able to climb stairs without the need for an oxygen mask

    sitting on garden/flimsy looking furniture KNOWING it won't break

    shopping for clothes in a 'normal shop'

    prolonging my life (hopefully)

    playing and running after my wee boy without having a paramedic on speedial :)

    feeling comfortable at all times of the year, especially summer!

    feeling confident and happy :)

    feeling and looking 'normal' :)

    .....and probably a 1000 more, but I'll stop there!!!!!

    I'd love that too. Especially when I'm out shopping I'd love to catch a glimpse of myself in shop windows & actually like what I see instead of wanting to run & hide & cry! Ohhh and those nasty dressing room mirrors!!
