Having to wear spanx under dresses and skirts...not to mention the joy of getting them on and up. Jeeze, what a workout! And, at the end of the night, if there is going to be any sexy time with the husband, having to peel them off...not so sexy lol.

I can relate to almost everything everyone else has said, but I'll add a few very specific to me:

1. no energy
2. having to wear a "uniform" (skirt with big top)
3. pain in knees
4. med for b/p and high cholesterol
5. great difficulty in puttin on support hose

I am keeping focused on the opposite of all the above!

This is a great thread! Thanks!

(I have been away from SP for a long time, but remembered this was my favorite team. So glad to be back among those with common problems and goals!)

I didn't get fat for anyone else and I am not getting thin for anyone else! I'm doing it for myself!

Losing weight is hard. Being fat is hard. Maintaining the loss is hard.

~ I'd like to not feel shame when walking into the boutique stores at the mall, when I go to buy a gift for a friend, because the store doesn't sell plus size clothing, and the teenage model clerks give you the evil eye.(Or at least seem to be.)

~I would like to be able to be able to climb steps without huffing.

~ Feel safe on a roller coaster, I never want to suffer the embarrasment again of having to get off a ride because the latch wouldn't click. Or feel anxiety from being on a ride when the saftey only clicked once.

~ I am a huge fan of t-shirts, but I can never buy the women's cut band shirts that always seem to have the best patterns, but never come in my size. I would like be able to support my favorite band without looking like a boxy mess.

Biggest problem that really bothered me lately was having to ask my sister to take my daughter on some of the fair rides because i was couldn't fit. It hurt that I couldn't be there for my daughter.

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.

I will not miss the condescending attitude you get from people. Anything they say to you or about you and any way they treat you is supposed to be okay. After all, you're just a sweet, dumb, jolly fat person - right??

Until then I have learned a trick for the chub rub deodorant. It works fabulously! Keeps legs from sticking and although they still rub it's not nearly as bad.

I can't wait to be able to wear sexy lingerie without feeling like a whale caught in a net. And to be able to wear skirts and dresses without the dreaded thigh rub.

I'm so over muffin topping everything I wear, especially jeans.

My belly gets in the way when I do some exercises like forward bends. I'm also too heavy to do yoga poses I could do before. That bugs the hell out of me.

I can't wait until the decision of whether or not to buy a shirt is determined by how much I like the shirt, not by how much backfat shows.

I also can't wait to buy shorts that are above the "jiggle line", which for me is about an inch above my knee.

You know you done when you:
sit in a chair and not feel as tho I am going to break it.
walk to the end of the block without getting winded
Be able to wear heals again (feet swollen)
no longer can buy clothes at a large lady shop because the sizes are not large enough.
Seat belts do not fit you
people treat you like a handicap person who can not do anything for their self.
spend more money on medicine than you do on rent. (you know what I mean)
take a picture in a group and all you see if your fat body and nothing else

I need to take a moment to grump about clothes. Forever XXI at one of our malls now carries plus sizes in the store! Woohoo!! Cheap trendy clothes for bigger girls at last! Yeah, ha, no. My friend and I went in and looked, omg. It was all so ugly, there wasn't a single thing in there I would wear. And nothing had sleeves on it! It was terrible. Honestly the thing I can't wait for most is getting to wear good clothes again!!

Life is not fair, or unfair, it is simply what you make of it!

I also hate having trouble getting a shirt that is long enough.Why would you make a shirt that is 2XL and it not only be short but have you noticed that most big girl clothes don't have room for boobs?! Most big girls have big boobs! Hello! Boobs are made partly of fatty tissue

I can't wait to be able to shop for clothes and enjoy myself! Right now, I dread even walking into a clothing store because I know that I won't find anything. If I go with my friends, they'll ask why I didn't buy anything. It's too embarrassing to say, "Because I'm too fat. Nothing even comes close to fitting me in this store."

I'm in my 20s. I want to begin living like a 20-something is supposed to - happy, carefree, and satisfied with life.

Pretty much what everyone else had said. Top 3 are:
1. Avoiding pictures. People have even noticed that I don't appear in many pictures when we send them pictures of my 3 year old. I can't wait to be right there with him posing for the camera.
2. Buying ridiculous clothes. Why are plus size clothing so ugly? I really don't want to walk around in a floral print with ugly colors the rest of my life. Went to Disneyland in Sept. and needed some T-shirts to wear so I wouldn't be too hot. Ended up with shirts I hated but they were the only ones that fit.
3. Huffin, puffin, and sweating. No explanation needed.
These are the things I can't wait to change.

whenever a guy's looking at me...
"is he checking me out?? wow..."
"...or is he amazed at how big i am? :/ "


EDIT:
1.bath towels are never big enough to fully wrap around the lower part of my belly and butt....
2.the way my butt bounces whenever i walk fast or run... this is actually the main reason why i abstain from running... because i feel like a ridiculous cartoon. (yeah, i'm pear-shaped)
3.when walking, blouses always move upwards because of my belly. so i have to buy only long blouses.
4.short and tight sleeves make my arms look like chicken rolls....
5. buying shoes about 1/2- 1 size larger than my actual shoe size... because thanks to the extra fat, my feet are extra wide...
6.being unable to lift my knees up to my chest (when exercising), not because my muscles are not flexible enough, but because my jelly belly gets in the way.... :(
7.being unable to see my shoes when standing up because of my belly...
8. always being ashamed when having to lift my arms to reach an object (wearing summer blouses) because i hate the way my flabby arms tremble... it's like i have chicken wings, yucks! emoticon
9.calf socks are always shorter than they should... because of my huge calves.
10.can't wear dresses and skirts because i always get inflammed where my thighs rub against each other.

Oh yeah I can so relate to so many of these
1) Chub rub of course.
2) The belly roll sweat (ugh)
3) boob sweat (lovely huh)
4) Plus size clothes in Canada are SUPER expensive and even harder to find than back in the states
5) The fear that people are looking at you in a bad way. I even had a car of guys moo at me a couple of times emoticon
6) The most embarrassing though was going in a cute lingerie store to look around (it was motivation) and have the lady meet me just past the door and tell me they don't carry my size (Rude lady La Vie En Rose in the Eaton Centre Toronto) Either that or they ignore you because you can't possibly wear their clothing.
7) My messed up hormones
8) Feeling like everyone thinks I am fat
9) Not having many pictures of my hubby and myself. My grandmother will be 90 in January. She helped raise me and was the only mom I had growing up. I have only gotten to see her once in the past 3 1/2 years. I would like to have professional photos of hubby and I done next year in time for Mother's day.

Where do I even start??
1. Back fat. Not the kind you get when your bra doesn't fit right either...
2. Pictures. I love getting photos taken but NOT when I look like this.
3. Clothes. I have a whole wardrobe of clothes that I will get to wear as soon as I lose weight. Not to mention buying new cute clothes

Shopping, Shopping, Shopping! I'm going to need to buy a suit in January, and I am on a mission to be two sizes down before I drop that kind of money.

For all of you DONE girls who mentioned the chub rub thing, there is a great product called "Body Glide" that looks like roll-on deodorant, but is an anti-chafe stick. I use it every day between my thighs and I never have an sort of rubbing or uncomfortableness anymore. They make an original formula and one for women, but the women's comes in a smaller container, so I just buy the regular. You can get it at sports stores in the running section, or through Amazon. I also use it when I have new shoes that feel like they might blister. It's really a great product.

If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together, leaving you with only one definite piece of information: french-fried potatoes are out. ~~Jean Kerr

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~~Anais Nin

Fat Girl Problem that...bother me
1. Stomach sweat (under the belly fold to be precise)
2. Knee and feet pain (plantar facititis)
3. Underwear sweat (enough said)
4. Not being able to walk up a flight of stairs without being winded
5. Shopping online or only at store's that are exclusively for plus sizes to avoid the pitiful looks of people
6. Feeling like I waddle
7. People watching what you put on your plate. I hate that
8. Buying clothes because they cover everything and I don't necessarily like them and they cost too much $$$. emoticon

#1 fat girl problem: When someone calls you out on your weight. I think it's really embarrassing when someone asks whether or not I've gained or lost weight because it's so noticeable. Truly will not miss that at all. For instance being made fun of by the boys in the back of the classroom for being too heavy and making the seat creek a little. Not having doors opened for you like every other lady on the planet because the immature man holding it is disgusted by my waist size. People hugging the wall far too unnecessarily as I pass because they think we might run into each other. I'm not embarrassed to be myself or emotionally detered by the negative attention but com'on. Even those of us made of steel won't miss those rude, demonstratively loathing reactions from total strangers. Definitely won't miss that fat girl problem.

So many things I won't miss:

The feel of my fat tummy laying on my thighs.
The holes in the inner parts of my pants from friction.
The way I sweat buckets in the summer so it sometimes looks like I wet myself when I didn't.
The way the under bra sweat makes me break out and always makes me afraid I stink.
The ugly clothes and undies because I can't afford the few I can find that I like that would fit--they cost twice as much as the smaller clothes.
The way people look at me as if I'm disgusting.
The having to drive with my toes because I have to move the seat way back to accommodate my tummy and the steering wheel.

1. Chafing - I wear spanks with skirts, not always to slim, but to avoid chafing
2. Belly roll sweat. And T-Shirts getting caught in a belly roll and coming out with sweat marks.
3. Overall sweat.
4. Fitting into rings I haven't worn in years but refused to get resized. And having necklaces hang where they're supposed to and not turning into chokers.
5. Less painful massages - because the smaller/less fat you have, the skin is less lose (hopefully, and toning exercises!) and doesn't get pushed into bunches and pinch itself during a theraputic massage.

Like so many of you, I can't wait until I can wear cute clothes again instead of ugly plus size clothes! Who designs those things, anyway? emoticon

I also am looking forward to doing things I used to enjoy, like kayaking. It's embarrassing to look forward to going kayaking with your kids only to find out that your weight is higher than the kayak limit. emoticon That's going to change, though, for ALL OF US!

Most of all, I guess I am looking forward to dating again and finding someone special to share my life with. I have been divorced for almost ten years (and haven't dated for about 25!) but I just am too ashamed of my weight and how I look right now (see above note about ugly clothes!) to put myself back out there right now.

The one thing that I've always sort of held dear to my heart is now the one thing I can't wait to give up, and that is blaming everything on my being overweight.
I used to be afraid that if I lost weight and people still criticized me or didn't like me then I would have to deal with a defect in ME, my personality- but lately I look forward to the opportunity to become accountable in all facets of my life, and live it well, and have good boundaries and decide for myself what I should accept as a true defect of character or just pass off as "their stuff".

Love, Ginger

I'd love to lose the chub rub. I have so many dresses and skirts that I don't wear because chub rub. It hurts!!!!
I'm also kinda disappointed in myself - I had gastric bypass surgery and following that a panniculectomy (removal of extra skin, kinda like a tummy tuck but without touching the stomach muscles). I loved my old belly - it was like having a built in arm rest. Well, the arm rest is back, but not as big. Yes, I have put on some abdominal weight and would like that to go.
