Well, this is sort of a strange question for me because I never felt like there was anything I could not or should not do, even when I weighed 300 pounds. I always went out, I always wore cute clothes, I always felt fairly self-confident, even when I was very sick. Other than wearing a bikini...I will probably never do that, though because I am covered in scars--no matter how thin I get, my belly will always look bad.
I've lost weight slowly over a couple of years and have been keeping it off along the way, so there haven't been any drastic transitions for me.
I guess I just want to be healthy and to feel strong. I have some horrible health problems that are totally beyond my control and I want to feel like I am in charge of the things that I can control. Also, I have been pre-diabetic for 20 years and am currently taking a very necessary medication which pushes a lot of people into diabetes. At the moment, my A1C and glucose are great and I would like to keep it that way.
