Migraines - They are always more frequent and severe as I gain and lessen as I lose. When I was below 300 (way too long ago now) I hardly had them at all. (maybe 1 every 4-6 weeks)

Having to ask for a table at every restaurant because booths are almost always too small.

Being uncomfortable in smaller public restroom stalls.

Constantly closing my seat belt in the door upon exiting the car because it is pulled out so far that it doesn't retract in the time it takes me to exit and close the door.

Very limited and expensive clothing options when shopping. I've found a local place that has nice clothes in my size, but it's always a sizable dent in my wallet to get even a couple pairs of pants and shirts.

Things I MOST DEFINITELY WILL NOT MISS:

- Sweating, feeling hot or out of breath just by walking up a flight of stairs
- Being the biggest person at work
- Being the biggest person in my family :(
- Dreading having to do up formal shoes
- Having family say "So-and-so did this, and they lost a lot of weight"
- Having family say "We're just concerned for your health"
- The judging looks if I am ever out to eat,
- Being afraid or not able to do things because I'm too big - we went jet-skiing in Mexico this past spring, and I had to swim to shore because I was doubling with Hubby and the jet-ski kept tipping with me on it. And I didn't have the strength to pull myself out of the water and back on.
- Feeling like a slob because my 'weekend' clothes are all older jeans and workout gear, and I have some rather stylish friends and family
- Low self confidence
- Fear

- Being judged, period. By everyone, for everything.

I won't miss...

The inner thighs of pants wearing out...
Tennis shoes feeling too tight because my feet are too wide...
Dreading having to get a formal dress because it's almost impossible to find something that is shaped right...
Dreading having to get up to use the bathroom in the middle of a movie and having to walk past all of the other people...

- Shopping for clothes (including underwear, bras, hosiery)

- Physical pain in my back, hips, knees, ankles, feet...

- Sluggishness

- Inability to care for my gardens and lawn

- Weakness (physical and mental)

- Taking up more than one seat anywhere

Things I won't miss

Having to look for chairs I won't break if I sit in them at a get together with friends and family.

Shopping for cute clothes and not being able to afford the cute ones and getting blah ones cause that is what fits.

The looks from people when I go out to eat

The comments of you have such a pretty face if you could only loose weight! That pisses me off!

The arm wings. I am afraid to wave for fear of slapping someone with the fat swing!

Not being able to swap clothes with friends because they are so much smaller.

The sweat rashes. Those are just gross!

Feeling like I am not attractive because of my size

Not having intimacy in relationships due to my size. Why ask me to be in a relationship if my body is disgusting to you? That hurts.

The fat shaming

The things my daughters hear about their mom being fat.

Not being able to find a job because I am labeled as lazy due to my size.

Jeanette

Live life to the fullest!

Things I definitely won't miss:

-BOLTS-, I have to agree with pretty much everything you said about clothes. It is so hard to find decent quality, affordable clothes. I've nearly given up on finding anything cute. I am a solid color t-shirt kind of gal these days. Also, the thighs are always the first thing to go on pants. Pants use to last me 3 or 3 times longer than they do now. Ugh.
-getting out of breath from going up a flight of stairs
-feeling uncomfortable sitting in tiny airplane and theater seats
-having to try so hard to look decent in a photograph
-the insecurity in pretty much any social situation

Things I won't miss:

-condescending comments from friends and family how I "should go exercise instead of _____".
-having to wear boat shoes or some other type of flat instead of tennis shoes because my feet are too wide and I cant tie them.
-difficulty shaving my legs.
-not being able to do more than 10 minutes of exercise at a time.
-worrying about retaining water putting me in a weight class I'm not comfortable with.
-feeling judged when I go grocery shopping.

-losing my breath in regular movement.
-feeling too hot in summer.
- sleep apnea!
-paying more for clothes
- cankles or fearing wearing crop pants out because of them!

Things I won't miss...in no particular order.

-Constant back pain
-Always tired
-Heat rash and boob sweat
-Crappy old lady clothes, because I'm fat and tall
-Running out of breath when playing with my daughter after just a few minutes (this is probably the hardest one for me)
-Being known as the 'big' neighbor and friend
-Not going out...ever, because I only have work clothes or crummy yard work t-shirts
-Looking in the mirror and seeing the thin person I use to be covered in a fat suit
-Working in healthcare and being talked about for being big...like I can't hear the comments, or notice the looks
-Feeling crummy for letting myself get to this point

The list could go on, but I think that's enough for this evening.

That just drives me crazy when I see Docs and clinicians smoking and I'm getting the nasty look when I drink my diet 7-UP or I put creamer in my coffee. I luckily work in Healthcare IT so I'm not with judgmental buttfaces a lot but man are they nasty sometimes.

I am out of seat belt extenders in most aircraft now. I only have to have them on 737's otherwise I'm good. It's a wonderful feeling! You will love it :-)

I used to work in healthcare, so I know exactly what you mean. Every day I wanted to scream "I see you smoking on your lunch break, so don't judge my Dr. Pepper" I've never worked in such an unhealthy environment as when I worked in healthcare.

And yes, I also cringe at the jovial fat person stereotype. "Fat" people aren't funny. Funny people are funny.

You hit the nail on the head with a couple of those Bolts. I Lane Bryant and Torrid has helped a lot with the ugly clothes issues, but they still cost a fortune. I won't miss paying those prices.

You can't imagine how much the unprofessional one really gets me. I work in Healthcare and you can't believe the s****y looks I get. Of course I probably actually care A LOT more about my health than most of them. I can't tell you how many pack a day smokers there are in healthcare. I dress better than 99 percent of my colleagues but I get looked at as the lazy one. Drives me CRAZY!!! or would that be crazier?

The funny friend thing bothers me a lot cause as most people on here know, I'm not funny. I also hate the jovial fat person stereotype. I'm not jovial really much at all. I'm much more the crazy driven work all the time person. It's a shame stereotypes are out there isn't it?

JMAMA123 - granny panties, I feel ya. I will not miss granny panties one bit either.

Other things I will definitely not miss:
- not being able to shop for clothes in stores that I like
- paying higher prices for ugly clothes from stores that I don't like
- having to replace overpriced jeans twice as often because of thigh rub
- while we're at it, hideous floral patterns. A visual explosion of neon hibiscus fools no one.
- feeling unprofessional at work even though I am just as smart and qualified as everyone else.
- being typecast as the "funny" friend. Seriously, I bring more to a friendship than just jokes.
- being afraid of getting a tattoo because of weight fluctuation

I could go on, but the #1 thing I will NOT miss is hearing that little voice in my head that says "you'll always be fat, you'll never be healthy, you can't do it"

*I will not miss - feeling second to everyone
*I will not miss- being afraid to say I am hungry (as if the fact that I am overweight negates the human need to eat ever again)
* I will not miss- being just a "pretty face"
*I will not miss- scoping out rooms for chairs, people, etc that are fat people friendly
*I will not miss- being scared of fun
*I will not miss- being afraid to be the real me (flaws and all)
*I will not miss- skipping social events because the anxiety freezes me before I can leave the house
*I will not miss- not being able to run!!! I have ALWAYS wanted to be a runner
*I will not miss- not shopping anywhere I want, wearing what I want in a style I choose
*I will not miss- feeling like I am missing so much in life
*I will not miss- the fear in my family that I will die at an early age
*I will not miss- being ignored for my intelligence because my body doesn't "fit their views"
*I will not miss- hearing my sister say to people "she isn't fat, she is big boned" (I love her, she really is just trying to make me feel better)
*I will not miss- the embarrassment my children feel when kids say "THAT's your Mom?"

*I WILL NOT miss- allowing myself to feel like I deserve everything I get because I haven't taken care of my outside body.


Keep moving forward; looking back is a waste of energy.

I won't miss feeling like I am less of a person because there is more of me. I hate how when someone is unfriendly, or I encounter social situations, I always feel like it would be better if I was thin. I know that logically, my weight is not what defines me, but since it tends to be what people notice right away, it's always "there", looming like a dark cloud.

Everyone's posts are so right on - crazy how this one issue can make many of us feel the same shame. Boo. Here's to getting healthy!!!

The horrific back pain if ever I dared try to bend over and pick something up.

My arthritic joints constantly screaming at having to carry me around.

Not being able to find clothes because I'm a size 30/32 and stores in Australia only stock up to a 26.

I won't miss the fat jokes.
The stares.
The feeling of inadequacy because you feel that everyone else is judging you even if they aren't paying any attention to you.
The feeling of self-loathing.
I won't miss the feeling of being an embarrassment to my children at school functions. Even if they never say anything, I'm sure those other kids have plenty to say.

I won't miss:

*random people giving me advice on what to eat/not to eat, how to exercise/not to exercise... and basically treating me like I must not know anything about healthy habits because I'm overweight (I actually know more than most people, you know?)

*Having students say things about my weight. My 9 year olds are totally innocent, they just say what they mean. Somehow that hurts more...

*Having people glance constantly at my stomach, which I think they do without realizing, but it always makes me think they are grossed out about my fat.

*Being mistaken for the other overweight teacher that works in my school. Constantly. It's so embarrassing, because we both know that it means everyone who works with us is fixated on the fact that we are both overweight. (She's like a foot taller than I am, so its not like we are really that similar. Come on people!)

*Limitations of what I can wear... I have such a passion for clothing, but I am stuck in stores that don't really resemble how I see myself.

*Being afraid of awkward situations where I won't "fit". (Amusement park rides, theaters, buses, planes, turnstiles, park benches, restaurant booths, etc)

*Actually not being able to fit in all the places I mentioned above.

*Being invisible in stores, at the bank, in my workplace, etc. I feel like I can stand around waiting all day for help or to get someone's attention, and if a thin person walks in, they are immediately approached. Does anyone else notice this?

Wow.. What a great topic! Time to get people posting what they won't miss again! :) I can pretty much relate to all of this.. so mine are.. Things I will NOT miss one bit!

~Plus Size clothing. Not liking the styles and the ones I do like cost an arm and a leg. o.O
~Worrying if I will fit in a restaurant booth because my bf loves them.
~Feeling so embarrassed after getting OUT of a booth because I'm practically stuck. Ugh.. I won't miss that one bit!
~Airplanes.. the seat belt not fitting. ( I won't ask for a extender because I am way to embarrassed so I lay the belt over my lap while my purse is on my lap as well and they never notice.
~Going to get take out from anywhere for both my boyfriend and I and wondering if they think the whole order is for just me.
~Hate the way I look in clothes.
~Hate the way I look without clothes. lol
~Not fitting a laptop on my lap because I don't have much of a lap.
~ My knee's and feet hurting from workouts.
~My friends and family saying they are worried about me for my health and don't want to lose me. ( That's a big one }

Soooo many more! I've read everyone's responses.. this is so motivational! I will NOT miss any of these things and as soon as I get to my goal.. I will never have to worry about them again! Game on ;) emoticon emoticon emoticon

1. worrying about the seams in my pants busting
2. feeling like I am not clean enough after a bathroom trip
3. getting winded and having to take a break
4. people pointing, staring, and snickering at me in public
5. feeling like I am an embarrassment to my kids at school
6. having to pay crazy prices for clothes
7. blood pressure, arthritis, and diabetes
8. hearing my mother tell me, "you could be so beautiful if you would just lose weight"
9. checking the weight limit on chairs, exercise equipment (you get the drift)
10. seeing the fat girl in the mirror
11. not wanting to be intimate with my spouse because I feel disgusting
12. not being able to go to amusement parks
13. using the scooters at walmart (that always die) because my knees can't take the weight I put on them

-- I won't miss having to buy clothes new and expensively because the sizes (5X shirt, 52-waist pants) are so big that not everyone carries them. Maybe I can buy as second-hand shops!!!
-- I won't miss chewing and having my whole face move, have people say they don't want to sit across from me at a meal.
-- I won't miss testing the chair I am sitting in to see if I can get up out of it, if it has the structural integrity to hold me, and if I am able to sit in it for a long time because it cuts off blood flow to something.
-- I won't miss the worrying about food-related illnesses all the time. I won't have to worry about diabetes if I monitor my sugar and my weight. I won't have to worry about heart disease if I exercise regularly. The stress of waiting for the other shoe to drop on my health.
-- I won't miss not being able to sit in public places like stadiums and movie theaters because the seats are too small, even if all I do is worry about it.
-- I won't miss the flabby feeling around my body, especially during physical activity when everything shakes.

Just a few things off the top of my head...

I not miss:
~Not being able to shop in any of the local stores because they all consider plus size to be 2x
~$50 bras that only come in white, black or crme colors.
~Bathing suit shopping that includes bras with extra padding and no support (Like I really need anymore padding on top.
~fearing wearing a corset at gaming conventions because I don't want to be the muffin top girl.
~feeling like I'm going to have an asthma attack trying to work out.
~Feeling like needles are hitting my back because my arthritis decided to complain about working out.
~Fighting with my doctor because her answer to how to safely exercise with arthritis & asthma is to loose weight.
~Feeling out of place with my family cause all of them are smaller then I am.
~Needing to ask to borrow one of the extenders on a plane because the seatbelt is too short.
~Needing to bring my cane along on flights not because I really need it to move but because if I have to stand in the security line for 2 hours I really do end up needing it.

Love this!

Things I WON'T miss....
- the whole jean issue and rubbing until there is a hole in the thighs is a problem for me as well
- feeling like I am being stared at while shopping or eating out
- feeling as though my husband deserves better and feeling guilty when we go out
- finding excuses as to why I can't run around with my kids
- getting out of breath doing day to day activities
- guilt during swimsuit and pool season...enough said
- my 4 year old rubbing my arm because it's soft and squishy
- not being able to hold my kids on my lap because, well there isn't much of a lap
- being told I couldn't ride a ride at an amusement park (yes it happened and it sucked)
- worrying about fitting in tables and other tight spaces.

That's just a start. There are plenty more I could come up with emoticon

This is the best thread. I read it from start to finish and then made my own list!

I will not miss
*Being afraid to run into someone I haven't seen in years.
*Not feeling comfortable wearing a tank top in summer in South Florida!
*Being afraid to go on rides at the fair or amusement parks because I might not fit.
*Being afraid to sit in beach chairs.
*Being afraid to go on an airplane because the seat belt might not fit or the person stuck next to me might hate me.
*My jeans rubbing through on the thighs!
*Holding myself back from things I've always wanted to do because I think I'm too fat.
*Not being able to ride a horse.
*Squeezing into the booth at pretty much any restaurant and feeling uncomfortable the whole time because my husband ALWAYS wants to sit in a booth. Has anyone else actually counted the tiles on the wall or wood panels to figure out if one side of the booth is bigger than the other so you might be able to get just a little bit more room?
*Always being tired.
*Not being able to cross my legs at the knee.
*Being terrified of pictures and that email that says someone has tagged me on Facebook.
*The look of panic on my friends faces when they realize they've made a hurtful "fat" comment in front of me - even though it's never about me.
*My toe nail paint being all jacked up because I can barely reach my toes.
*Bruises on my hips from where I run into furniture and doors because I "forget" how big I am.
*My back hurting all the time - so much that I can barely clean my own house.
*Trying to make myself invisible.

I won't miss any of that junk.

I will not miss feeling like nothing looks good on me no matter how big I get it, the rolls still show.
I will not miss avoiding shopping altogether to avoid having to see that nothing fits right.
I will not miss paying more to get bigger bras.
I will not miss avoiding cameras.
I will not miss being the fattest bridesmaid.
I will not miss having to check the weight limit on office chairs.
I will not miss hearing that this weight is what is keeping me from having a baby. There may be other reasons but until I lose weight the doctors refuse to find out what's wrong.

There is absolutely nothing about this fat that I will miss.

We seem to all have the same " I wont miss " items.
I may have over looked it, please forgive me if i did. I wont miss the heavy breathing, heart beat in my head, pass out feeling when i play with my nieces and nephews on the playground.

Maybe just maybe when i am at the maintain and just live stage i wont have to check my blood sugar anymore. let me tell me how bad I wont miss that one. poking my finger and squeezing it.

NEVER!! discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.

I will not miss spending more for clothes! I can't stand prices for plus sized clothes.

I won't miss being winded walking from the basement to my upstairs.

I won't miss being shy around my family and feeling I let all my supporters down.

-Being embarrassed about getting undress/dressed in front of my fiance.

-Being out of breath from the littlest task.

-Making excuses for the way I look.

-Being exhausted alllll of the time

-The way people who I haven't seen in a long time look at me because I have gained so much weight.

-Not being able to run and play outside with my son.

-Being afraid that chairs/furniture break when I sit in them.

-Wearing T-shirts, Jeans and sneakers all of the time because I don't feel like I will look good in anything.

-Being scared that I will die because of my high blood pressure and weight

-My snoring making my fiance have to go sleep on the couch in the middle of the night.


There is so much more that I will not miss but it felt good to write this list... Almost therapeutic.

I will not miss....

Dreading sitting at a booth in restaurants for fear that I won't fit and embarrassing my husband.

Explaining to my daughter at carnivals that I can't take her on a ride because I am too fat.

Avoiding going anywhere by airplane because I'm afraid they will make me buy an extra ticket and I can't afford it.

Being surprised every time I look in the mirror by just how big I really am.

Going into stores that specialize in plus size clothing and still not finding anything that fits right.

Avoiding pictures being taken of myself at all costs.

Feeling uncomfortable being naked in front of my own husband.

Ankle and knee and back pain.

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than he who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over self.

I will not miss:
-missing out on fun activities because I am a) scared there won't be "fat-friendly" seating or
b) worried my walking pace will slow others down (or heaven forbid there will be stairs)
-feeling winded by simply getting dressed or walking a short distance.
-feeling I am being judged every time I'm in public
-having to squeeze into seat belts or refrain from wearing one because it doesn't come close to latching
-making excuses that aren't size/weight related when it is my size/weight that's holding me back

I wont wear a sports bra, whats the point? Its like one giant Uniboob that has a mind of its own!
How about using a public toilet -- in a very very small stall-- with no room to move around to be able to be in a comfortable position enough to wipe?

Things I will not miss:

1. The pants fraying in the thighs thing, yes! I'm also grateful to not be the only one that happens to.
2. The migraines. It's amazing to me how little I find myself reaching for a bottle of ibuprofen once I start eating better and exercising.
3. Hating the way I look in pictures next to my very fit husband.
4. Sweating on relatively cool days.
5. Waking myself up from snoring so loud.

- having to check the weight restrictions on things

I will miss:

Being out of breath walking up a flight of stairs.
My hips sticking to the arms of a chair
Back pain
Knee pain
covering my bottom half of my swim suit when I go swimming (I'm embarrased by my butt)
My stomach being bigger then my chest.
Being out of breath after 20 minutes playing with my son.

I could go on and on with my list.
Great feeling of motivation! Thanks.

Oh I'm so on board with this thread! I will not miss...

- Chub rub (my name for the inner thigh rubbing you all mentioned)
- Not being able to shop with my friends because they're all "normal" sizes and I'm not
- Having my belly fat inhibit how far I can stretch forward
- Feeling the judgmental stares when I buy food, even if it's healthy
- Hearing things like "you have such a pretty face"
- Wearing clothes with sleeves.

This is an awesome thread!

I won't miss:
Worrying about whether or not I'll fit in a chair with arms.
Wearing out the thighs in my pants.
Not being able to cross my legs enough to get my foot in my lap to tie my shoes!
Not being able to cross my legs.
Being tired. All. The Time.
Foot and back pain.

I won't miss:

*always worrying about having a chair to sit in because my back hurts from extra weight in addition to my back issues.

*replacing jeans not because they wear out but because they have rubbed through between my legs (glad to know it's not just me!)

*always being the one in jeans and a t-shirt cuz I'll be able to shop in "regular" stores and get cuter clothes.

I agree with JEZEBEL2880, with the pants rubbing together. I won't miss getting out of breath as I bend over to tie my shoes.

I won't miss my pants fraying on the inner thigh area from rubbing together!

And I've never been stuck in a ride, but ever since a friend of mine had to get off a ride because the belt didn't fit, I've worried it would happen, so I avoid that stuff. So, I won't miss worrying about whether I'm going to pop an innertube or not fit on an amusement park ride!

I won't miss wondering everytime I bend over to grab something on the low shelf at walmart, if someone will snap a picture and post it on one of those nasty facebook photos that goes around making fun of fat people!

SUFFER THE PAIN OF DISCIPLINE; OR SUFFER THE PAIN OF REGRET!!!

FALL down SEVEN times - STAND up EIGHT!

You don't have to go FAST, you just have to GO!

Getting into a 'tryout seat' for a ride in an amusement park, and getting stuck in it, and the police jumping out of the pushes to pull me out. I have never given birth to a child, but as when women give birth on a stool, they lifted me beneath my armpits and said "push". I pushed and popped myself out and had two lovely large bruises on my thighs as trophies. I will not miss this.

Giving is important. Occasionally give in. But never give up!

I was reading other members Blogs and couldn't help but giggle in acknowledgement. Simple tasks that others take for granted.
Bending over to sweep things into a dust pan
walking and never having to have your inner thighs sore from rubbing together
the awesome things that happen in the Summer when you begin to sweat in places you didn't know existed.
These are things I will not miss.
What are some things you wont miss? When this is all over and you are just maintaining and actually living.
What are some of the things you are excited about never having to deal with again?
Laugh about it, lifes too short to dwell
