Sleeping positions. It is hard to explain but certain sleeping positions just don't work as well and I get stiff joints or cut off circulation wakes me up to roll over. I can't wait to be rid of that problem (again).

A lot of people mention it but being excluded from the activities, I am just on the border line for things like roller coasters and zip line depending on the specific ride and equipment. there are quite a few rides I can technically ride, but can barely get myself buckled in properly.

The worst is the thighs I HATE them so much!! I live in FL now and I like to wear sundresses but my thighs kill me if I do it a couple days in a row. Being pear shaped its going to be the bane of my weight loss journey.

Today I was bummed out that I am too heavy for an exercise ball. I recall when sitting on one, one perfect for my height yes, that my knees were at a 90 degree angle just as they should be. Doesn't work that way anymore! Yes I can do things with the ball that are useful and do not require me to sit on it. But it is really a bummer to be too heavy for the weight limit of the ball!
It will be a wonderful day when that is no longer true.

The thing that bugs me most often I realized is bending over. Like sitting in a chair trying to reach my toes to paint them, or to tie my shoes, my belly gets in the way by hitting my legs. UGH! I cannot wait to not have to move my leg out of the way to reach my feet properly!

Being asked when my baby is due, I am NOT pregnant. I know it is maybe not as usual for a woman to carry so much weight in the belly instead of legs or arms, but that is how I carry my fat and I am so tired of people literally assuming I am pregnant, they don't even wonder, they just really think I am. :(
I will be SO happy when people stop thinking I am pregnant. I have gotten so used to being asked that that I don't even get outwardly upset anymore. And then they apologize over and over and it is like, it is fine, it is fine. Really I just want them to be quiet about it.....they apologize to make themselves feel better when I rather they stop bringing it up.
I relate to a lot of what I have seen written in this thread and it is nice to not be alone on these things, we will all reach our goals! emoticon

Constantly being told oh but I have a great personality , to cover up the fact that the person who said that thinks that is all I have going for me. Or my other fave they say that I would be so pretty if I lose the weight...WRONG...I am pretty now I would just be healthier if I lost the weight. I am so tired of some members of society and media associating fat with ugly.


In theme of what others have said even though they are uncomfortable I would love to be able to put on a nice form fitting dress and high heels and be able to cross my legs at the knees and sit like a lady.

Being over weight limits. Lots of things have a 250 lb. weight limit. Horseback riding, zip lining, certain activities at activity centers. I hate avoiding activities. I want to participate like everyone else and not worry about it. Also, I want to be able to ride roller coasters without worrying whether the ride harness will fit or not.

No matter how slow you're going, you're still lapping everyone on the couch :-)

YOU have to MAKE it happen.

Progress NOT perfection.

Being able to wear shorts and not worry about how far I have to walk because my legs will rub together and give me a rash. I would love to wear shorts next summer and not have to worry about that!! I've had this issue since I was 13 years old.

Health issues and surgery. I have had cancer twice and happy I am still here. Thank God!!
Having to have several people try to pull you up in bed and they look at you funny or whisper about me. Biggest is Thunder thighs giggly arms and the big hanging belly. Wearing a tank top and an over shirt & having people look in my shopping cart to see what I am buying because I am fat.

I am just getting back into using SP but wanted to add to this.

I am looking forward to not wearing double shirts all the time. I have camisoles in just about every color and design, because I very rarely find shirts that fit across my chest and down my body to fully cover. It is the never-ending decision to "show belly or show cleavage", neither which is appropriate working in a prison!

It has made me learn to appreciate unique color combinations, but I am tired of the extra laundry!

Smile often, and see what happens!

I hate how shirts that suddenly are too short because your boobs took up all of the room.
I hate having to wear what fits, and not what I want to wear.
I hate having to buy something new every time I have a big event (wedding, birthday, you name it)..I have a closet full of one time outfits!

I will definitely not miss having to spend money on something just because it fits

I have an ENORMOUS list of problems that I am ready to kiss goodbye, but the top ones are:
1. inner thigh chafing (and I *highly* recommend Skimmies by Jockey in the meantime -- the XXL looks tiny, like you have no chance of fitting into it, but you will! Try them!!)
2. belly bulge constantly in the way and constantly making me feel bad
3. uncomfortable air travel
4. avoidance of amusement parks (not fitting in rides) and water parks (too much body shame to enjoy)
5. avoidance of photos -- my sister takes a ludicrous number of pictures, so it's a lot of work to try to get out of them all the time; I even refused to sign the waiver at a recent work-related function because I didn't want my picture taken and posted online for all the world to see

Fear of flying, Not fitting in to a seat on an airplane, roller coaster, having people look at me when I shop, like big girls don't need to buy clothes or something...

For years I've sent my husband out to do my clothes shopping and I told him once I get below 200lbs I'll go with him until I feel comfortable in the stores shopping. He's very supportive and excited that I agreed, 11lbs to go - i can feel the anxiety coming as I get closer to that point.. I just fear nothing will fit and people will laugh at me for trying on smaller sizes when i'm too big to fit into them..

Hi all my name is Sandy and I'm new here. I can agree 100% with the friction inner thigh rub I see on here....I just went for a ride with my hubby on the Harley and to my horror, I found that I rubbed right through my favorite pair of jeans in the inner thigh, so I had to try and swing my leg over the sissy bar without showing the whole world the hole in my jeans the entire day. emoticon

I am done having that happen starting right now!!!

I am counting down to get rid of thigh chaffing. Anytime I walk long distances or if it's hot I get painful, red chaffing for days afterwards. I often have to wear tights under my pants to cut down on it. Also it wears out my jeans really fast. There's nothing more discouraging than the a hole in the thigh of your pants that you suddenly realize when you're out in public. Sigh... no more.

Two words...bathing suit! We took a cruise last month and I sat on the beach instead of swimming in the beautiful clear water. We're going on another cruise for Christmas 2016. I refuse to go without a bathing suit.

I really dislike my belly, too.

Jeans...I really want to be comfy in jeans...the kind you button or snap. No stretchy stuff.

Being able to wear knits without worrying about the rolls and bumps.

Wearing shorts and not having them ride up between my legs from the friction.

Wearing leggings in public without feeling like I'm a fashion Don't

Fitting into the roller coaster seats without wondering if I'm inadvertently stress testing the restraints.

I'd love to shed my mirror phobia and my fear of my picture being taken. Also, I don't want to shy away from being touched, thinking other people will be disgusted to have to touch me.

Shoe laces not tied in the middle of your shoe. Have you ever notices fat people have their shoe laces tied close to the side of there shoe because it is to hard to get your foot up to tie your shoe. it is true and a common problem. The other problem I have is when flying from visiting a friend the seat belt on a short flight was not big enough. Embarrassed I would not ask for help so I flew without one.

The medical fear one -- I feel that so much. I want to not dread the doctor because fat always seems to equal bad news.

Chub rub. Ugh. Worrying about finding little shorts to wear under my dresses to prevent that grossness!

I want to go to an amusement park and ride ALL OF THE RIDES with my niece and nephew instead of not riding rides because I'm afraid of not fitting in the belts.

*Panicking every time we go to Disneyland while in line if I will be able to buckle in without assistance or get up easily at the end. Without the embarassing huge grunt and exhale sounds while coming up.
*Checking weight restrictions on anything I buy even a simple step stool or lawn furniture.
*Going to events or parties without fear of do they have those weight restricted plastic chairs. (Yes I sat on one at a party and it broke)
*Being able to take my daughter to the water slides and get on too. Weight restrictions again and endless climbing.
*No longer having to figure out how to navigate through a packed restaurant so as no to bump into the chairs with people or plain not fit through.
*Not having fear when being refereed to a doctor because you are not a person with a medical issue. that you were sent there to check into.one look and they have your diagnosis you need to loose weight case closed. This is the most disturbing of all. Asking for help of medical professionals and many will decide as soon as they look at you.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, as far as I know people might consider this an exaggeration.

Though, my problem is looking decent while standing up, then looking like a ball of puddy as soon as I sit down.

as others have said, ditching the uniform... finding one flattering dress and buying several of them in every boring old color they offer in plus sizes. i am so tired of wearing black all the time.

the huge one i'm dealing with right now is being able to walk into a store and buy a bra. i'm not even talking like, cute bras, i'm just talking about a bra that fits. i don't think i've ever even owned one. i have currently switched to genie bras, but when i went to big 5 the other day to look for a sports bra, the biggest one they had in stock didn't even come close to fitting me.

i want a bra that fits my ribcage but doesn't leave me with giant bumps spilling out the top.

people pay money for these things?

In addition to being glad to get rid of the problems others have listed below, I cannot wait to get rid of the Charlie Brown cloud that follows me everywhere.....no matter how cute I feel or think I look all it takes is one look in the mirror or at a picture, etc. and it's gone. Depression would be too strong of a word, but being this heavy definitely affects my mood and I'll be glad to get rid of it.

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'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.

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.
