    Good ol' Weight Watchers!
    Personally I have a huge list.......

    Here's a few.....

    I'd luv to be able to go into "normal" clothes shops and buy up to the minute styles without breaking the bank on one outfit.

    To go on holiday and not worry if the seatbelt on the plane is going to fasten or not.

    To get up from my sunlounger and go to the bar without covering up.

    To wear gorgeous, sexy high heels and knee high boots.

    To walk into a room and turn heads for the right reason!!lol

    To luv myself as much as my husband does.

    etc etc....

    Curious to see what others are looking for.....dont be shy..

    Although I have only 25lbs off so far I was able to walk into a high street shop last week and buy myself a couple of new shirts and ties. It felt brilliant to not have to depend on my usual "for fat and tall people" store, where I usually have to do my shopping online!

    I also have a work seminar to go to in London in March and the whole airplane seat thing will hopefully not be as embarrassing as it has been in the past, so much so that I have avoided aeroplanes like the plague in the past few years.

    I have to say though that the biggest thing for me so far has to be the way I feel about myself, not what other people think of me.

    Hi,

    What a great thread!!

    Mines are -

    To wear high heels

    To not have to always cover my arms

    To not have to go to parties and friends houses and sit in my jacket all night.

    To not be in tears due to fat photos.

    To be able to wear vest top and shorts around the house and to bed.

    To not having to get my friends to pay for my clothes in the "fat shops" because i'm too embarrased about the sizes.

    To go on a night out and not spend the whole night wishing that i'd made more effort to lose weight.

    To not be jealous of any female smaller than me


    God my list could go on forever, its interesting to think about it, as i've never realised before how much it changes your life when your overweight.

    :)

    To be healthy and teach myself a better way of life with food.

    To be able to buy clothes in any shop I like.

    To get my BMI under 30 (it's 33 at the moment) and be 'overweight' - not obese.

    I'm looking forward to lots of things. Mainly looking forward to my face looking nice again. Alot of people's faces look ok, but my weight gain made my face look bad. So that's the main one for me, to be able to smile nicely for a photo again, without having a fat face. I think the next would be to buy clothes from the shops I love. The next is really to feel comfortable sat on the plane, without feeling fat, and struggling with the tray and belt. There are many more things, but these are the main ones.

    Ooh, good thread. Here's mine...

    - to not feel uncomfortable in my clothes because they're too tight
    - to be able to go out with my DH and his mates and not feel like someone's old, fat mum
    - to be able to go into any shop and buy clothes
    - to be able to stand naked in front of the mirror without wincing

    Oh yes, and to be able to see my feet rather than my huge bosoms which always seem to be looming out at me!

    After reading the replies on here I am amazed how many people have the same trouble as me on planes. It is so embarrassing when you have to eat your meal off your lap because the table doesn't come down level because it's hitting your belly. This is probably one of the most embarrassing things that has happened to me, that and the fact that the hostess says she cant see my seatbelt because it's under my belly. The next time I go on a plane (hopefully March next year) i'm gonna make sure I have lost enough weight to have a comfortable journey.

    Good ol' Weight Watchers!
    I'm so glad I started this thread and thanks everyone for being so open and honest.

    The plane is my biggest fear everytime I go on hol and I love my holidays. I feel so sorry for my hubby cos he gets the brunt of it!! All the times i've been i've squeezed myself in with the belt and only once had to ask for an extender and was utterly embarrased but a hell of a lot more comfortable!!

    I've yet to eat my meal comfortably from my tray and I always use hubby's to sit my drinks etc on! But we're booked for 2 weeks away in Sept next year and I hope to be comfortable and wearing some lovely summer clothes for a change!.x

    Keep them coming guys and thanks again.x
