I know some of you posted these awhile ago, but you all said it so well. all of it. I wanted to add a few:

Not feeling nervous around younger children that may make a comment about my fatness

Being able to fit in seats - airplane, stadium, restaurant booths

Being able to buckle seat belts without extenders. to actually be able to sit in the backseat of a car buckled in

To not have to dread meeting business associates for the first time - the judgement!

To be asked out/hit on and not automatically think it is a joke

To want to stand out for good/positive reasons instead of hoping to be ignored

I am looking forward to being able to ride in an airplane without wondering if the flight attendant will ask me to buy a second seat. :)

I look forward to doing everything just like my friends do. Last year, we went to Panama City for a week and had a blast. The only thing I remember really reminding me how overweight I am is when we decided to get some mopeds. I rented a double seater bike so that I would not be "the fat chick on a moped". I still had a blast, but I just am tired of having to alter what I want to do to fit my weight!

How do I change?
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labour.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.

I'm still excited over the idea of being able to buy clothes from whatever store I want!!! LOL I realize thin girls have clothing issues too and it's not like everything will look magically great on me..things fit differently for everyone due to different proportions and body shapes...but I'd still have so many OPTIONS! hehe I'm excited to be able to have a little more control over what I want to be my "style".

A little part of me likes the idea of getting back together with friends years from now and having an awesome bod to show off :)

I am looking forward to:

Being proud of myself inside and out

Finding my soul mate and not being too ashamed to love him

Wearing normal clothes

Being able to reach my potential

Living the life I know I can live.

Not being held back by my own insecurities

Not being the "fat sheep" in my group of friends.

There's no substitute for victory. Though there is a substitute for sugar.

And most of all being healthy both for myself and my family!!

- Standing in line for a rollercoaster and not worrying about whether I can fit.

- Sitting comfortably in an airplane

- Getting my sleeve tattoo. This is supposed to be a big motivation. I want a sleeve done so bad but there is no way one is going on my flabby arms. haha.

- Not being the fat friend.

- Feeling good in a dress.

Oh wow... I see this wishlist, and I know it hasn't been updated much, but I figure this was fun to read so I am going to participate as well.

*Being able to have my face back (I miss my features, they were cute, now it looks like it leads right into my horrible chin)

*Being able to wear a 2 piece bikini again. (Hey if you got it, flaunt it!) Its been too long!

*Having my husband look at me the same way he did the day we met. (To be fair, he still does, but it just doesn't feel the same when I look at myself)

*Shopping in the size section I wish I was in now. And will be in once again.

*When buying pretty lingerie or bra sets, not having to hope it looks good on my size and also dropping a bazillion dollars on a couple of items of clothes. I miss shopping the sale racks.

*Not having to say "we really need tog et back on track" as often, whenever I get thrown off track and tell my husband we need to get back on track, he usually says "yeah but we always say we are going to get back on track" and I have learned to reply with, "Yeah, we will always say we are going to get back on track, until we don't fall off track."
It wakes him up a bit.

*OH! and one more! Being able to feel sexy and wear cute clothes, and sexy shoes without feeling like I will fall off because my balance now sucks.

Goals:
1st goal: 230 by September 19, 2009
2nd goal: 200
3rd goal: 175
4th goal: 150
5th and Final Goal! 130!

I noticed today that I'm starting to get a little bit of a butt (as opposed to a flat butt) and I like it. I'm looking forward to having a cute body at some point! :)

I'm looking forward to being able to ride my bike trail to the 30-40 miles or so it takes to actually get to the end and then turn around and come back without being in pain the next day!

I'm looking forward to the 2010 summer road trip in "cute" clothes without feeling like everyone is staring at me in them (at least in a bad way).

Oh and this one sounds mean but I'm looking forward to being in better shape than my "skinny" sister.

LOL I agree with so many of you!! It's funny to think that I'd thought I was all alone in this for so long and I'm really not.

Some of the things I'm looking forward to are:
-Not hiding from pictures because I don't like to see just how much bigger I am than everyone else.
-Not hearing stories of people who say things like "I'm sooo fat now! I weigh..." and then a weight I WISH that I was.
-Putting clothes on for a date and not looking in the mirror and throwing a hoodie or jacket over it.
-Not being so worried about summer because I look like a sun burned whale every time I go outside.
-Feeling better!
-Not hiding out in the house because I'm ashamed of how bad I've let myself get.

I'm sure I could keep going, but that's probably enough.

You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves.

LACIGIRL1 You crack me up! You hit the nail right on the head when you said you were looking forward to sex with the lights on. I never would have thought about that one but I guess it is definitely on my wish list....

As for me, I'm looking forward to:

- Actually OWNING a little black dress
- Owning cute under clothes in general
- Not feeling like the largest girl in the room all the time
- NEVER having to be referred to as "Daddies *big* girl" EVER again!
- Being able to tie my shoes without it squishing the breath out of me in the process
- Being able to put my wedding dress back on...just because
- Being able to say I don't FIT my wedding dress anymore!
- Buying my very first swim-suit
- Not being plagued with worry over the condition of my heart
- Not being terrified that I am putting on a horrible example for my 1 year old daughter

- To see that little turtle on my ticker reach the end of that line! Go Turtle Go!!

I look forward to being able to play outside with my kids, going on a boat ride, sitting in the chair at the makeup counter (it's impossible right now), carrying my baby around without getting out of breath, being able to shop is the misses section, and not worrying if I'm having a heart attack every time I'm out of breath.

Things I am looking forward too...

No back rolls

Sex with the lights on.

wearing cute little strappy shoes without my fat bulging out the sides

wearing shorts without them riding up or having to wear shorts that are knee length

not having to worry about muffin top, love handles, saddle bags, or any other descriptive terms for a flabby body

working out at the gym based on what I want to do, not which ones make my butt jiggle less than others

kids to stop asking me if I am pregnant

my seatbelt clip to stop digging into my hip when I drive

men checking me out...and in a good "oh my god" way

dress the way I see myself dressing in my mind

run around and not get out of breath, or pretend to stop to look at something while I am really just trying to catch m breath

sexy bras.

matching panties.

I could go on forever....

Wow...everyone has such great things...reading them made me think..hey, me too! so, here's my list:
-having more energy to do the things I love
-going to the beach and not wanting to hide
-giving my patients health advice and not thinking in the back of my mind, "Are they really listening to me?" (after all, who takes nutrition advice seriously from someone who weighs almost 300 lbs)
-less back pain and preventing all the health problems that come with excess weight
-more shopping for clothes that I actually like

Oh my gosh, there's so many. I could probably type on here all day and still not cover it, but here's a few:
1. Getting to buy awesome new clothes & shoes
2. Running up a flight of stairs without running out of breath (I'm almost there!)
3. Not feeling like everyone's looking at me like "ugh, she's so fat."
4. Going out to eat with friends, eating only a small amount, and REALLY being full, not just pretending.
5. Going back to Jamaica and actually being in more pics this time, rather than hiding behind the closest available object.
6. Working out to stay fit, not working out to lose weight.
.... And many, many more!

Working toward a happier, healthier me!

I am looking forward to...
-being able to wrap the towel all the way around me after a shower.
-having people call me beautiful again, instead of the hesitation, "oh you're pretty" comments I get now
-feeling like I can really participate in life.
-being able to buckle the airplane seatbelt without having it almost all the way extended
-being in pictures again instead of always being behind the camera

Things I'm looking forward to:

~Buying "normal" clothes
~Going to the beach or a pool party with my friends and not being too embarrassed to wear a swimsuit
~Going to an amusement park without worrying about fitting in the seats
~Starting horseback riding again
~Taking dancing lessons!
~Seeing an ex and knowing they're wishing they were still with me!

I'm sure there's more but that seems like a decent list for now. emoticon

Most of these have been mentioned, but here's my list:

*Not having to sit in one of those "test chairs" before I can get on a ride at cedar point... so embarrassing, especially when you're with friends and they all see that you're too big!

*Being able to better enjoy beautiful days: hiking, skiing, running, etc.

*Shopping where I want! It's so embarrassing to be 22 and only shopping at Lane Bryant (which is also expensive!)

Edited for typos!

I'm looking forward to losing this last 40 or so pounds so I can go over my wardrobe and throw out all my fat clothes and replace them with skinny clothes!

Down 115lbs so far, looking to maintain a muscular 200 or so eventually.

ACOSENZA2 i read all of your things and I totally relate... I almost copied and pasted yours!! Other then the wedding in six months I look forward to all of those things.

I was asked the other day what my goal was and I said my goal is just "to fit" to fit in a chair, to fit in an asile, to fit into clothes off the rack... I just want to fit.

I am looking forward to being thin enough (my goal is 175 but I would settle for 200) to take pin up style pictures for my husband. When he met me I weighed 150 pounds and now I am 284. I want to feel comfortable enough to give him a really sexy gift! Second thing is I would love to be healthy enough to conceive it does not seem to be happening at my current weight.

I am looking forward to many things lol

-I look forward to being able to go to meetings without worrying about what type of chairs will be there and if I can fit in them comfortably (sometimes the arms of the chairs give me bruises on my legs because I squeeze into them)

-To be able to fly without always having to ask for a seat belt extender, not to mention fit comfortably in those tiny seats, and not worry if the person next to me is comfortable.

-To be able to shop for clothes in a regular store instead of online or at a "specialty" store where I always spend a fortune.

-To look fantastic at my wedding in 6 months (not to mention there will be friends there who have not seen me in quite awhile and they will be amazed)

-And to finally feel atractive

Ok that is all for now lol

One step, one sip, one choice, one pound at a time will change my life.

I look forward to being able to walk without pain which makes me hobble like an old woman, to be able to get up after sitting for awhile without feeling like I need to sit right back down. To being able to walk all over hell's half acre like I used to, and to feel like I can cart me kids around with me while I do it.

I also look forward to being able to buy cute clothes off the rack without spending half my rent for a piece or two of clothing. emoticon emoticon

Just thought it'd be nice to do a little motivation thread.

I'm not particularly feeling limited by my weight, but there are situations that come up and I keep them in mind for motivation.

So, a few things I am looking forward to as I lose weight --- feel free to reply and add your own!!

- Being able to play a pick-up game of whatever (football, frisbee, soccer) and not be all red-faced out of breath.

- Being able to walk up unexpected hills without going "great, this is gonna suck"

- Being able to go on hikes when camping with friends

- Being able to go on a vacation in a tropical place and wear a bathing suit comfortably.
