    It occurred to me today that there were lots of things, apart from the obvious ones of looking better in my clothes and being healthier, that I was looking forward to when I've lost weight.

    For example, I'm looking forward to:

    Being able to put tights on! (even socks can be a struggle at the moment, LOL)

    Being able to get out of a public toilet cubicle (especially those in pubs--why are they so small?!) without having to back up alongside the toilet (yuck!) in order to open the door.

    On the theme of public toilets, being able to sit down on one without my hip touching the sanitary towel bin (hate that!)

    So, come on. There must be lots more... :)

    Funnily enough when I lost weight the beginning of the year, the sales that I went to only had the larger sizes - isn't that bloody typical!!!

    Anyway. I am looking forward to the following, are you ready cos it is a bit of a list:-

    Being Healthy
    Being sexy/feeling sexy
    Having more self confidence
    Being able to buy clothes from normal shops
    To be able to buy sexy matching underwear
    To reduce my body fat and BMI
    To be normal, not tagged obese or overweight
    To be a yummy mummy
    To be me
    To learn portion sizes/healthy food
    To be a healthy mum and be around for George longer
    To not be the fat mum at the gates at school
    To not be looked at in a normal shop by the shop assistants, with a look as if to say you wish!!
    To wear a really sexy dress this christmas and have everyone say WOW with my new look..
    To help other people lose weight and achieve their goals...

    I think that is it for now... will update if I think of any others...

    Love

    Oh wow!

    I identify and agree with all of these! This is really motivating. :D

    I thought of a few more...

    Not causing a small earthquake when I turn over in bed :)

    To go swimming and not care what people think (I know I shouldn't care now, but I do!)

    To be able to walk up three flights of stairs and not be out of breath (I work on the third floor and the lift's out of order right now...:cry:)

    Please--keep them coming! I think I'm gonna make up a big list of all these to look at when I'm in need of a pick me up!

    Being able to fit my bum into the saddle that fits my horse.

    Being more flexible so that I can ride better.

    Having a smaller belly that doesn't wobble over the top of my low waist trousers so my trousers don't fall down :eek:

    Feeling like I am setting my 5 year old daughter a good example of what a healthy body looks like. :(

    Toilet cubicles are extremely small, there's not a lot of room to move around, I have found that it is STILL difficult despite losing weight!

    I am looking forward to:-

    Nice underwear
    Being able to go swimming without worrying
    Being able to wear whatever I like from wherever I like
    Not standing out - I want to blend into the background and its impossible at this size
    Not feeling that my husband and children are ashamed to be seen with me (I KNOW full well that they love me, but it doesn't stop me worrying)

    Probably a million more things, and I will add them as I think of them.
