things I won't miss about being fat...

1. Leg chafing
2. Pulling the bottom of my shirt every time I sit down to avoid "the roll."
3. shopping in the upper extremes of the size ranges of my favorite stores.
4. Not fitting into any of the clothes in my favorite store.
5. the under arm jiggle
6. jiggle in general
7. sucking it in to button pants
8. 360 degree mirrors
9. the torturous spring bathing suit shopping ritual
10. being asked "when are you due?" (only happened once by some stupid relative on my husband's side)
11. sore feet, sore back

any more?

i won't miss the huge, bothersome lumps of flesh and fat that are commonly called "boobs"!!! if i could sell these to someone, i would do it in a heartbeat!! reduction surgery costs too much, so i am on a mission to lose them the old fashioned way, through diet and exercise.

Things I don't miss :
1. Feeling so tired , cranky , and sweaty during the summer !
2. My bras not fitting because of my weight gains !
3.Realizing that I can only fit into one pair of my jeans. The huge baggy men's pair.
4. Getting winded when I walk up the stairs.
5. Feeling horrible when I walk by a mirror.
6. Being embarassed about my boyfriend seeing my naked body.
7. Making my hair big, hoping that will somehow fool people into not noticing my double chin & chubby face !
8. Wearing huge baggy t-shirts with no shape at all.
9. Always hoping that it's chilly enough , so that I can hide under a huge jacket !
10. Feeling embarassed about people seeing me eat.

I second 'under arm jiggle' from the OP.

I won't miss:
The pudgy face
Being the 'big one' at his family dinners
Getting anxiety over summer and beaches
Feeling like a slob
Not being able to workout with confidence
Not liking the way I look/feel
Not being able to fall asleep because I'm analyzing everything I ate and thinking of what a pig I am

11lbs to go till my goal :)

New thing I love now:
Being the 'hot chick' at the gym some days
Heads turning
Picking up a 5 gallon bucket of paint becuase my fiance can't (woohoo weight lifiting!)
Noticing the new lines and definition in my arms and body
Squeezing my thighs and feeling a lot more muscle and a lot less fat
Getting daily compliments on my legs
Being called 'one of the thin girls' by my fiance's mom

mostly, i won't miss the opportunity to comment on a thread with this title!!

i won't miss: explaining why i won't go to the beach,
not being able to hike my favorite mountain without stopping a thousand times,
wondering if everyone in the bagel place thinks all of the bagels i just ordered are for me, hiding from people i haven't seen since my weight-gain, keeping the elastic waist pants-just in case...

I won't miss...

1- Rude, stupid, unattractive men who think I should be grateful that they're even talking to me
2- Achy joints that make even walking painful (check!)
3- Guilt when i eat in public, knowing that it pains people to see a fat girl eat anything that isn't green and leafy
4- Wearing pants on a superhot day because my legs are just too gross to put on display
5- Avoiding social occasions because I can't stand being the biggest girl in the room
6- What passes for "fashion" in the plus departments (check!)
