After having eliminated the weight issue, I'll build proper, lean muscles so I can start some form of parkour-ing. I admire the capabilities of Jackie Chan and David Belle.

I'd love to be able to walk for two hours without pain. I'm sure my arthritic ankle would be much happier with 40 less pounds to support! My goal is to be able to travel comfortably and to be able to walk around and see the sights. It would also help if I could fit into airplane seats without the arm rests squishing my hips!

I decided not to wait until I was skinny, since that isn't my plan, I didn't want to wait until I was "in shape" for those dreams, since I didn't know when that would be, and I didn't want to wait. I had/have dreams and a vision, so I did create my Dreamboard/Vision Collage, I got started, I've checked off some dreams/visions, and I'm ready to add new ones, and I do keep it posted on my sparkpage so I see it often.
So far:
I Climbed a mountain-hiked up Chimney Rock, all the way to the top, beyond the chimney, even greater than my expectations.
I experienced a dolphin encounter,and actually fit into the wet suit,.
I've been on 2 active cruises.
I Felt comfortable in my bathing attire to wander around in (not a bikini).
I have a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

In October:
I'm going to jog on the beach, and not care what others think.
I'm going to bring my bicycle along, and investigate the island by bike (which I don't currently ride).

2 year-15th Anniversary:
Island hopping, snorkeling, possibly kayaking, and other great unknown adventures in the U.S. Virgin islands.







Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus� name, Amen.

Two big things. I have always wanted to run in a 5K for charity, and I used to be super flexible after years of gymnastics and dance, and I really want to be able to regain my flexibility and do the splits again...just to say I can do it!

A couple things on my "healthy" bucket list:
I want to be able to be one of those women who runs outside on the sidewalk in their sports bra and shorts on a really hot summer day...and who looks good doing it! So getting the confidence to do that, plus prime weather because I'm not going to do that when it's like 70 degrees. Gotta be 85+.

I want to run/walk another half-marathon, under 2:45 this time.

Walk a 5k. That is nothing to some people and they take it so swiftly for granted. I have MS, every step is a fight. It takes me a broken hour to even reach 2.5 miles, but - I want to get to that 3.1 - That's #1 on my healthy bucket list. No matter how long it takes.

I don't know if you've ever done rebounding but I heard that can help tone the skin as well as other things. From my diligent research if you don't want to spend a ton, buy an Urban Rebounder. If price isn't an issue the Cadillac of rebounders is the Bellicon bungee cord style. There are a couple in between that are good quality too. You may even be able to buy used from Craigslist. There are lots of duds out there though, so be careful with your selection if you go this route.

To get my skin toned and tightened so I really feel sexy again and to someday wear a sleeveless top in a public place. I've lost the weight - and I'm strong and see muscles, but my skin does not look firm enough to wear shorts or sleeveless tops. I FINALLY started tucking things in, wearing belts and I don't need jackets anymore. My FIGURE (shape) is fine - my skin has so not caught up. It is not cellulite or flab - it is SKIN that seems too big. I work on this every day! Right now, even my nightshirts have sleeves - and when it's 100 degrees, I will wear a top with long, loose, sheer sleeves because I feel like I can NEVER let my arms show. Not even at home. I can't stand to see my own bare upper arms! (Even though I clearly see muscle definition...)

I want to go trekking in Nepal. I've been to Nepal before, but just to Kathmandu, and I feel like I have not had the full experience. Most of my "skinny chick" goals are travel-related. I travel now, but realistically, I cannot fit into certain boats or seats, particularly in Asia where people are tiny. I rode a camel in India two years ago, and I was so afraid I would crush the poor beast the whole time.

To feel comfortable running around on the beach in my bathing suit without any shirt or cover-up.

My first item, which I've already achieved, is to wear a top to work that isn't hip-length without feeling the need to wear a vest over it to conceal my "problem areas". I had an extensive vest wardrobe before I started on here, and I've given them all away.

As far as able-bodied, that's not really an issue. I can do anything I want right now with the exception of running - my knees are past that.

I make small goals. For instance being able to run/walk a mile in under 15 minutes. I completed that last week! Now it's moving on to being able to run/walk a mile in 10 minutes. I'm not a runner and never have been but I would like to be able to do those things and feel accomplished when I'm done. Maybe I'll do a marathon run one day! Going back to Colorado and going to their mountain park and being able to walk up the whole thing. Before I made it half way. So for me it's small goals first. Lifting more weights, buring more calories, being able to increase the resistance on the machines, etc.

Oh! I love this post idea! Well, I would love to be able to hike a "14er" as the mountains above 14,000 ft are called here in Colorado. I would also love to take one of those hiking trips through the English countryside where you walk from town to town.

I want to be able to do a chin up (pull up). I have never (even as a more slender child) ever been able to do one. It is completely strength-based, and I want to prove to myself that I can do it, that I have the muscular strength and endurance to pull myself up.

What are the activities/adventures/experiences that you've been putting off until you're healthy or slim enough. Have you made a list? Do you post it where you can see it? If not consider doing that. I asked my Facebook friends to help me with a "Skinny Chick" Bucket List to help me create a list of amazing and absurd things that I will do once I'm at a healthy and able-bodied weight (I need double knee and one hip replaced-so there are things I just CAN'T DO right now) Ride a bike down an easy hill? Hike Half Dome? Climb the Sydney Bridge? No idea is too small, too big, or too weird. Share it folks! You just might inspire someone by sharing your crazy idea.
