I will not miss

- having to see pictures of myself and noticing my double chin
- looking like a beached whale in my friend's weddings.
- having my mom ask me when I will lose weight
- trying to find and wear size 16 clothing when I'm only 5'4" (what fits me in the waist is too huge in the butt and too long in the leg)
-trying to find anything size 16 in the "petite" section. (For some reason, the manufacturers seem to thing that if you are "petite", you can't possibly be "overweight"
- the slap in the face and humilation of having to order a size 18 dress for a bridesmaid dress and then having to pay an "extra fee" for the larger size. (My actual size should have been a 16, but the bridal salon decided they wanted to make money off of my alterations... GRRR-- they were snotty about it, too!)

My tummy roll. Feeling self conscious. Not feeling sexy and beautiful! Telling my son not right now mommy's tired.

What I will secretly enjoy...
Having to buy belts because my pants won't stay up on my waist and I'm going through sizes so quickly I can't just keep buying new ones.
Have random guys on the street check me out.

That fat girl frowning back at me in the mirror
Those parts of me that I just couldn't seem to tuck into my clothes
The tears, sweat, and blood that I lost to get to where I am now!

oh, yeah, the flip side! Good idea 7:59 poster.

What I secretly enjoy
-people asking me "how I did it"
-resisting the urge to have a treat
-fitting into size extra small and size 6, for the first time since I can remember
-an attractive guy telling me he likes how I look in my tight pants

I won't miss
-my fat pants
-my old lady huge-size bras
-the pain in my back from carrying the extra pounds
-the pain in my knees and feet from running with the extra pounds

But one funny thing--when I was thinner/healthy weight, and biked a lot, I got a rash from my thighs touching even then. So, though I wouldn't miss it, I don't think I'll get the luxury of losing that one. I'm just built that way.

Even being in the proper weight range for my height...I, too, have thighs that rub. My waist, however, is nice and thin!

-I will not miss my butt being 2" lower!
-I will not miss the "good-bye" wiggle on the backs of my arms!
-I will not miss feeling less-than beautiful!

-I will not miss my grandmother pointing to an older picture of herself, my mother and me and saying, "we were all so much thinner then"...I'm not dead, grandma, just a little chubby! I'm still a human being...even with 20 extra pounds! I love you, but I hate the fact that you have made me feel like I'm less of a person because of a little extra weight. And the looks...oh, the looks.

What I look forward to:

-realizing that the "skinny mirror" is not a trick
-buying clothes online because I know they will look good no matter what
-digging out the box of cute clothes that used to be too small
-not being embaressed to wear shorts to the gym - cardio in long pants is just too hot!
-for that matter, feeling okay wearing spandex at the gym

What I will miss:
-the big boobs
that's about it

what i look forward to:

suddenly thinking "hang on... when was the last time i binged?" and having to count the days back instead of automatically knowing.

having to wear belts on my trousers because damn they won't stay UP :)

having those bitchy girls in my halls look at me enviously instead of pityingly

being able to have sex without feeling sorry for the guy for having to appear like he's attracted to my body minus clothes.

what i won't miss:

constantly having to buy larger cloths

not being able to enjoy food because of the guilt

not remembering what its like to feel comfortable in my own body

not being able to forget about weigh issues for more than a couple minutes

all the time wasted feeling depressed and fatalistic about my eating habits

all the opportunities I never took advantage of because of self-esteem so eroded by the extra pounds.
