It would make me feel like myself again. I've been at a good weight most of my life except now. I would be happy to wear most of my clothes again

I'm with you on this - I would be ecstatic to wake up tomorrow at my ideal weight as long as I got there by being healthy and got toned & strong along the way.

Then, of course, I would dance, dance, dance with joy before going out to buy a new dress & skinny jeans!

Not much, except I would be able to wear clothes I haven't worn in a while.

Hopefully, though, I'll be stronger and have more energy when I get to my goal weight range again.

Naturally like everyone I would need new clothes, and I am finding that I am needing some new friends as a few I have at the moment are not coping with the 'success'i am having. This never crossed my mind when I started on journey. I am also having to learn to like/love myself, as when I was at my heaviest I hated myself.
this weight loss thing is hard to live with so waking up ready 'done' would freak me out! Lol

Sometimes I feel like giving up. Then I remember I have a lot of people to prove wrong.

If I woke up at my ideal weight tomorrow, I would work on muscle tone and maintaining that weight!! I would also go shopping for new clothes.

I like what Sherylds said:
"I would shop like there was no tomorrow and I would flaunt it bebe."

But I have been waking up at ideal weight for quite some time now and you can't go shopping every day, and quite frankly, some people don't respond very well to a 55 year old always "flaunting it" (even though I got it to flaunt...LOL!)

Maybe that is one reason I like riding with our motorcycle group. You can dress a little sexier (trashier?) and get away with it! Of course I like that I look good in modest clothing too, and I do try to choose clothes that flatter my figure, show off my waistline, etc.

Nothing would really change except the amount of money in my bank account.

lololol I'd be so broke from shopping. And I'd probably have to get some skin removed. Oi. No rest for the weary.

I really hope that I'd feel healthy and "light" again. That's why I cherish each pound I lose it and savor the moment.

I was my ideal weight in high school and I thought I was "fat". ugh, young me, why?

Hopefully I would continue with the lifestyle and not slack thinking this is good enough (my downfall).

I would feel amazing and happy about using the tools to continue feeling that way! It's a process for a lifetime, eating clean and healthy, exercising and being positive - it's my choice to be happy and thinner - it's my goal! I'll get there with the help of SP

I would feel very scared that I had lost 30 pounds overnight. I would worry about my health and probably seek medical attention.
If I was perfectly healthy and at my ideal weight, I suppose I would work on maintaining it with regular exercise and healthy eating.
I would probably want to buy some new clothes... maybe try a new hairstyle.

I would feel fantastic!!!!

I've been there before and I looked and felt great. I have to agree with EthelMertz though - It all goes back on if you don't live this diet forever, and that is the biggest problem. It's deprivation. It's why I have been stuck at my current weight so long. I like good food and wine and don't like living in constant deprivation to look good for a little while. So I am happy being where I am, as long as I don't put any more weight on.

I know for me that I have everyday reminded myself that I am in the middle of a new adventure that I will be on for the rest of my life. My life has changed and I am embracing it daily. If I have a down day that sends up a flag I start reading some motivational quotes for listening to some light and exciting music. Then I do a small thing that I have been wanting to do so when I finish it this time that boosts me up again. This is my formula for changing my life. Who knows I might have to adjust it later but for now it works. So if tomorrow I woke up at 150 lbs I would adjust maybe some portions but I basically would keep on keeping on because life is fantastic.

To keep spiritually fit, consult the Great Physician.

Let's see, I've gotten down to my ideal weight at least 6 times in my life, but it didn't really change anything big time at all, and that is a disappointment that none of the weight loss companies tell you about, no real "magic". I was married at a higher weight, husband got used to my weight going up and down, didn't bother him either way, been 45 years. Able to dance at any weight, do the exercise bike at any weight, but have to keep it up no matter what weight. Also, no one tells you that you have to eat the same way you did to lose weight, forever, because you will eat off plan here and there a lot, so you are never really done dieting. Unless you gorge and keep that up. The fantasy is not the same as the real thing.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I think my wedding dress wouldn't fit - it was purchased at +15 pounds and I don't think it would size down adequately.

I love the idea of being in an easy body. I have already had a lot of changes with losing 10% of my weight - i can run up the stairs, see my feet, and tying shoes is easy peasy. I think if I were my ideal weight overnight, I'd like to hike the beach cliffs with the hundreds of steps and walk up quickly. Not my current huffing and puffing.

I wouldn't, really.

I'd just be in maintenance, eating like 300-400 more calories a day of healthy food. That's just another snack, or slightly larger dinner, or 2 drinks - nothing earth shattering about that.
