I'd think I will buy myself some nice clothes! Nothing too elaborate or expensive, but something nice to feel good in. And make sure I KEEP taking care of my weight. I never want to get here again!

I picture myself feeling better everyday as the pounds drop. One day I will reach my goal, but I am trying to pay attention to myself and my accomplishments along the way. I want to enjoy the present as I move toward the future.

I don't see anything. I just see me slimmer. I don't dream of shopping. I never have, even when I was a size 8. I don't see myself with a new man. I don't dream much anymore, at least not for me. Most of my dreams are for my little girl that she will grow up and be healthy and strong so that no one can push her around just because she is beautiful, but not be mean and ugly either.

I picture that when I go somewhere I won't hear whispers and laughter anymore, I will hear Ooos and Aaahs over my new top or my hair. I want people to see me for more than my weight. I imagine that Mr. Awesome is clutching my hand tightly, asking if I'd like to go to the park after church or get a small gelato to share. I imagine going dancing and not being afraid that my lil' jelly roll will roll it's way on out. :)

I picture this: going to all my Christmas get-togethers and being so stunning in a very slimming outfit and diva-like strut to go with. I picture seeing my ex (though I'm in no hurry) and once again, showing off myself. I picture the whole package: I just had some cosmetic dental work done, so I'm looking forward to that body to go with the pretty smile

When I am at my ideal weight I picture myself as confident and at peace with myself. I will walk with my head up high and have my old switch back. I would feel more able to conquer all kinds of challenges that I may face. I would also want to have become more of a positive role model. I would also start doing flips, splits and stretches with my daughter.

I picture myself with a Godly man. Speaking the Word over me - washing over me with the water of the Word... My future husband is a lover of God and all the other things will follow...

You are so right! I am so ready to do the very same thing. I want to really appreciate my mom who is my biggest fan and supporter. All of my family for putting up with me and my friends who know just when to say the right things. I feel you are an inspiration now only for young girls but all ladies.

First off I picture myself jumping for joy because I actually did it. Then I see myself taking my family and friends that never lost faith in me (wish I could take you all too) out to celebrate with dinner. Then I am going to go shopping and have a makeover. Then I hope to be an inspiration for young girls and show that them that they can do anything. That if I can succeed then so can they.

I picture myself being well toned and looking good in a pair of jeans emoticon
I can so relate to what you are all saying. I want to be strong physically mentally and emotionally and being at the size I am now undermines my confidence. I have to admit I would not mind guys thinking I am attractive too. I look way better even in a size 16 than I do now and I just would really like to keep a healthier life style so I don't have to ever buy plus sizes again.

It sounds so encouraging to hear you are 53 pounds down since March!

I was actually picked as a biggest loser for the college. I started the program tonight, it was an informational meeting today, but I am to meet with my personal trainer soon, I hope. I am excited and find it comforting to know that you too will be at the gym feeling powerful!!

Thanks.

i picture myself at my goal weight and feeling the best i have felt in ages. My whole family is going out to dinner to celibrate my victory. So with a dinner comming that means new clothes, new hair do and a life long commitment to being healthy and active and vowing to myself never to be 220Lbs again.I have been on and off diets for many years and this is the first time that i say this is for life and i mean it. Good luck to all on your weight loss journey. When i started slim fast optima March 1 of this year i had 100 Lbs to lose and i can tell a big difference with only 53 Lbs down.

Be the best person you can be.

That's awesome that you're going to start going to the gym. I joined the local YMCA gym in February and for about a month and a half I was super diligent in going...and I lost 20 lbs. And then, I had a set-back...There was a guy that I'd really started to kind of like and he pretty much rejected me. And so I went on an emotional eating binge for about a month and gained it all back. Didn't work out much AT ALL this summer. But in the past few days I've started going to the gym again.

I know what you mean about feeling embarassed when you're there. I have those feelings to, but I try to ignore them and focus on how powerful I feel by just BEING there. It would be so much easier to just go home, eat a cookie...but working out makes me feel good AFTERWARDS. I never feel good after eating a cookie. Ha ha...

So way to go! Keep me posted on how the gym goes for you!

That is exactly how I feel, invisible and ashamed. I am about to start going to the gym. The only thing is I live at a college university and go to the college gym, so I will be surrounded by all the skinny college kids. while my belly shakes like a bowl full of jelly they will be toning their rock hard abs. How embarrassing!! Not to mention my heavy breathing after what they see as a warm up! Oh well, I have to start somewhere. emoticon

When you think about losing weight...when you picture yourself at that "ideal" weight, what do you picture yourself doing?

I think the first thing that I really picture doing is going shopping. I can't remember the last time I actually felt like I looked "good" in clothes. I remember last year I finally broke down and bought jeans from Lane Bryant, and it was heartbreaking for me! Lane Bryant was great--their jeans made me look way better than the too tight ones I'd been stuffing myself into--but it was so hard to buy that bigger size!

And I'm really looking forward to not being invisible anymore. Guys never notice me at this weight. And if they do, I feel embarassed. I know I probably shouldn't, but I just feel ashamed of my body and the size that it is now. I avoid wearing makeup unless I'm "going out" with my friends for an evening. I don't wear "cute clothes" because I hate shopping at the size I am now. I have a few basics that I just wear over and over. I did break down and buy a cute dress from Lane Bryant that I've worn a few times this summer that makes me feel like I look nice, but again, that's saved for special occasions. On an everyday basis, I just seem to shrivel up into myself to avoid being "seen" at the size that I am. I'm tired of feeling like this.

So, shopping and being "visible" again are the things I'm probably looking forward to most. I should probably say "improved health" but, while I really want that too, looking good is more tangible to me right now!
