I had thought about all of the usual things like being able to walk easier and feel better, but until I looked this posting it hadn't occured to me that I would like to be able to buy a dress again and feel good wearing it. I haven't done that in more years that I can remember.

I want to ride in a glider, jump out of a plane, and bungee jump. A while back I was on vacation with the family and was too heavy to go horse back riding or go on the zip line. I acted like I didn’t want to anyway, but it really made me feel bad about myself.

I love this thread and reading everyone's goals!
I have two of them... my husband and I travel a lot and both of mine are related to that:

1. I want to go horseback riding on our next destination trip and won't have to worry they won't have a horse that's as a big as King Kong for me to ride.

2. I want to not be worried in case I forgot something, that I'll be able to run into the gift shop and be able to pick up a cute bathing suit cover-up or whatever and it will be in "my" size!

I was going to say fit into all the fabulous spring clothes in the back of my closet or buy a cute new swimsuit (not black) I feel great in for this summer but what I really want more than anything is to take lots of pictures with my family without feeling self conscious. I've missed out on years of family photos because I'm not comfortable with my appearance.

I asked my kids if they were ever embarrassed by my weight. I always wanted to do that, but was afraid of their answers. My youngest said, "No, cuz there are other moms bigger than you, and my whole class loves you!" (We have a very small school system.)

My oldest said, "Not really. But sometimes when the guys were talking about 'hot moms,' they would say, 'and your mom is REALLY hot.' I just would laugh and say, 'right.'"

Well, I don't necessarily want to be that "hot mom" because I am more conservative, and don't like to be flashy. But I don't want my kids to be embarrassed at all because of my weight. This summer at pool time, I am not going to be the beached whale!
