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.

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.

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

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!)

i look forward to taking quicker showers - not as much skin to wash! not as much leg to shave!

and let me just say that for me, by far, the worst place to have fat is the back. it squeezes out the bra and leaves a nasty bra line with fat rolls above and below it. gross! if i had to take add an extra inch or two of fat to my thighs just to get it off my back, i would do it!

Great Thread! Here are mine:

I wont miss:

-Not wanting to do anything social because I don't have clothes to wear
-Wanting to wait until I lose the weight to go to the beach/vacation/parties
-Being embarassed to be the fat wife of a very handsome man
-not wanting to take baths
-Trying to cover myself up
-Trying to find clothes that look good, when actuall none do because it's my
body, not the clothes

The list goes on and on.

Something I won't miss about being fat: Staring hopelessly at the scale wondering if I will ever loose the weight and then eventually giving up.

Something I love about becoming thinner: Poking those bones you haven't seen in ages! Or in my case EVER.

why do you insinuate that we're not doing something about it? i have not yet reached my goal, but i look forward to it for many reasons. this thread helps to remember some of the horrible things about being heavy, it's not encouraging anyone to remain that way.

14. Being able to have sex whenever, wherever I choose with the lights on or off and SHOCK in the broad daylight!
15. Boobs that are actually boobs, not just lumps of fat from being plus sized (yeah they're big now, why wouldn't they be?)
16. Trying to style my hair different, do my makeup different, or something to deflect from the fact that the real problem with my appearance is my weight
17. Hiding everytime a camera is involved
18. Not having my children be able to reach around me with their arms because my waist is too large
19. Fear of breaking a chair (however irrational this may be?)

I have a closet full of some of the most stylish glam clothes in existence, no kidding I work in fashion, and have amazing clothes, that right now, I lend to thin friends.

Jumping in the pool with my kids, arms raised, whooping and screaming, and not caring who sees what.

Wearing just a simple sleeveless dress with a belt around it, not some great big floatimg mu-mu.

Sex without feeling repulsive.

Squatting down and not feeling the enormous rolls of fat on my stomach

having a friendly relationship with the bathroom scale

not feeling matronly

that'll do for a start

Great thread! I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one looking forward to smaller boobs. These things are so heavy and get in the way. I have back ache and dents in the top of my shoulders. I have to buy big enough clothes to go around my hips and waist, but they have to be even bigger to go around these boobs.

I am in process, but these are the things that I am thankful for already! (and there is NO going back!)
Being able to wear cute workout clothes to the gym
Being able to shop in "normal" stores and buy regular sizes
Not being afraid to ride rides at Six Flags, because I know that I will fit in the seat
Feeling cute and more attractive
Feeling fit and physically feeling good
Being able to kneel down or get something off of the floor, and get back up without grabbing something to help get me back up
Thighs not chafing like they used to, not having to go nuts with the baby powder every time I get dressed
Being able to wear shorts and not worry about them riding up between my legs
Having my cholesterol being in the "good" range--that is the most important one of all. My doctor wanted to put me on medication a year and a half ago!
It's weird getting out of the mindset that everything has to be big to hide my body--sometimes I have a momentary freakout that something is too form fitting, but then I realize that it is okay, it actually looks good!
Good luck, everyone!!

Can I ask a question? This past summer I have just not tolerated the heat. It almost makes me ill. Is there any chance that this will go away when I'm smaller or is it from pre-menopause? Any guesses?

What I like about getting a start on improving my health? Feeling like I'm in charge of the food, not the other way around.

Wednesday, October 10, 2007, 12:57 PM

Add comment
12:57 my guess is that heat won't bother you nearly so much once you've waved bye-bye to your extra insulation.

I'm at the weight I want to be (thankfully) and here are a few things I won't miss:

- Quietly hating myself. I knew it was harmful to feel that way and wouldn't give it too much conscious thought, but it was always there.
- Tensing up or moving dh's hand away from my belly when we were spooning.
- Hiding from everyone. Like not wanting to introduce myself to new neighbors until I lost weight.
- Ignoring fashion. Shopping was such a miserable experience and the last thing I wanted was "look at me" clothing.
- Eating in that depressed "I'm hopeless anyway" binge mode.

For all of you out there who are struggling, there IS hope. I can remember watching a singer on an MTV video, thinking "I will never ever have legs like that again". But guess what? Mine are better!

the extralarge bras- granny boobs
feling self conscious

lack of style choices, not being able to wear this seasons fashions
being afraid to feel sexy

Great thread here. I agree with most of these. My big ones though are:

I want to wear shorts in the summer, my legs have been so horrid the last few years i haven't exposed more than capri pants,
I want to walk into a club and feel sexy, good, pretty, heads turning, not invisible to men. I've been there before and I want it back!

Flat chest wannabee

I sincerely hope I get flatter & flatter as I lose weight. I agree that I will not miss my fat boobs! I also will not miss struggling to touch certain parts of my body. I will not miss having to wonder if there will be seats big enough, etc when I go somewhere.

If they're hurting your back and stuff, doesn't your medical cover reduction surgery?

being afraid of seeing people i knew in high school
not being able to wear all my cute clothes
not washing jeans just because i know they're stretched out a little bit after wearing them once so i can feel even a little more comfortable
not even caring to do my hair or make up because i'm fat - i couldn't look good if i wanted to anyway.
resenting my roommate when she talks about her size 6 skinny jeans
injuring my joints and always having a tense back
my small boobs looking even smaller atop my donut belly
finding new cellulite and fat pooches - it'd be nice to find new abs and thighs i worked hard for
just having it occupy my mind when I clearly have so much more to be worried about
knowing that i'm at risk for health issues
oh i could go on...

wearing my skinny jeans! And i will not miss.....

...hiking up my jeans when i sit down so the tummy doesn't pooch out over the top of them
...being crazy jealous every time i'm watchin a movie with my husband and thinking "i bet he wishes i looked like her"
...having my fat get in the way when i'm doing yoga (hello, toes! i missed you!)
...spending hours in the tanning salon, thinking "tan fat looks smaller than pale fat!"
...having to buy only black, white, or beige bras- cuz that's all that i can find in my size!
...also, having to wear bras with about eighty eyehook thingies on them
..."plus size" sections in stores (i shopped for a while only at old navy because their bigger clothes are in the same section as the "normal' sizes)
...and i'm so with ya'll on the thigh chafing!!

Something I won't miss:

The snotty sales girls at the cosmetics stores, who look at you as though you have no right to be shopping there, who seem to think you're ruining their atmosphere of polish with your extra pounds, and who ignore you when you try to ask a question. As if a little extra weight must surely bar you from ever doing anything to improve your appearance!

shopping-- no nice clothes!
buying a $55 jog bra online because there are no decent bras in town only to find it doesn't even come close to fitting.
back pain, foot pain, mirror pain
remembering how cute i looked when i was thin
avoiding public places
pulling up pants, pulling shirts down over the long-time-since-post-baby-gut
wearing pants on the beach
not being able to jump or run
working my butt off in yoga and the dreadful reflection looking back
teaching yoga to people who are thin
doing shoulderstand and having my boobs suffocating me
not being able to run and chase my son up and down the beach
going to the in-laws house and dealing with the judgement
normal yoga clothes being ill fitting
looking in the mirror and not seeing the real me

One piece bathing suits! (and waiting to take off my cover up until I'm laying down sucking in) - can't wait to get that cute victoria's secret bikini!
Being just as bundled up in the summer as I am the winter
Not even owning a pair of shorts
Feeling like I have to make excuses when I meet someone by telling them I'm in the process of losing weight

10 pounds til goal weight!! Can't wait for summer for the first time in my life!

looking forward to

i just started my weight loss goals last week so i have abit to go still

things i wont miss and looking forward to

1, going to social events and meeting up with old friends again (have been refusing to meet old friends for about 12 months)

2, my thighs not chaffing the skin peels and sweating. *that bad i had to go doctors*

3, being able to cross my legs

4,not being embarrassed when walking around into a normal clothes store knowing everyone knows you only fit into the biggest size.

5,not having the tops you once own/worn 1 yr ago now being too tight when you try to attempt wearing it, the tops roll up when you walk/sit down and having to pull them down.

6, feeling comfortable in clothes. everything i wear, te biggest size feel uncomfy and too tight.

7,people not asking if your pregnant

8,people not saying omg you've gained weight since the last time they saw me.

9, not having people say i used to be your size to talk about how much weight theyve lost.

10, being out of breath and get sweaty easily

11, being able to look at myself in the mirror BELOW MY FACE. lol

12, not having to wear stretch sweat pants cos they are the only thing that fit comfortably

13, not having the inner thighs bit of your pants worn/rip after about 2 weeks of buying them because the material have been chaffing against each other when you walk.

14,linked to 13, not having to buy a new pair of pants every 2 weeks due to ripped/loose stitching on the inner thighs of pants.

15, most of all iam also looking forward to not having skinny girls look at me like they are wayyy better than me and give me a look even though some of them who do that to me have half a brain and dont know how to put a sentence together.

16, the last one. having girls bitching about why they dont know why guys find me attractive and would go for me and why alot of guys like me because iam fat. (iam popular with the men because of my personality but some girls think its all about looks)

worrying what I'll wear if I say yes to a social event or how I'll look in a swim suit or in shorts, etc.

4:56, that's exactly what I was going to say. I had lost about seventy pounds, and then recently gained twenty of it back. Nothing fits and I refuse to buy too many bigger clothes, as I feel like I'm admitting that I'll always be this big. So when I get invited out, I always worry if my ONE good pair of jeans and my ONE nice shirt are clean, and if anyone will notice that I always wear the same damn thing every time we go out.

I definitely will not miss that.

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

Opening my closet and finding all the same fat clothes I hate.
Bending over to tie my shoes.
Shopping for a bathing suits.
Worrying about what people are thinking when they look at me.
Feeling bad about me.
Hiding behind big sweatshirts and oversized clothes.
I won't miss any of that!

I won't miss:

1) the leg chafing know when you walk and your pants make that lovely noise that lets everyone know Thunder Thighs is on the move.
2) Having a Ton of clothes in the closet and nothing to wear...because you can't find anything that you feel comfortable in besides sweats and T's
3) not wanting to go to the beach because people will see you
4) wearing the same 2-3 pairs of pants over and over again because they are the only ones that somewhat fit
5) using a safety pin instead of the button on your pants to give my waist that extra 1/4"
6) Not having any comfortable or Pretty bras. Why is it that most of the bras in the "D" section are only Hospital white, black or some other ugly color no one wants to wear
7) Butt Cleavage...or overage....
8) wearing only capris inthe summer because I'm too embarassed to wear my shorts
9) Feeling like I look Frumpy
10) embarassed when my Hot Husband introduces me to a co-worker and thinking "they must be wondering how he ended up with a frump like me"
11) Being afraid to wave because of the 2nd wave from the under arm
12) crossing my arms UNDER my chest to help keep the girls up...and having people think I'm being unsocial
13) would love to go to a social gathering and not think I'm the most unattrative person there and actually enjoy myself.
14) not lose the feeling in my arm because my bra strap is cutting off my circulation...I would love to downgrade to a "C" cup - Can't understand why women actually have implants to make themselves a "D"....Nuts!

I used to be thin (117-115lbs) and thought I was what I wouldn't give to be the way I was. =) But at this age.

I Won't Miss...

There are SO many things I don't miss about being fat:

1. Not wanting to go shopping because it was hard for me - I got all sweaty trying on things and NOTHING ever fit right!

2. Not wanting to run into people from high school or college because I had gotten so fat.

3. Being the "fat" sibling at family gatherings.

4. Not being able to cross my legs.

5. Feeling bad about myself all the time.

6. Not wanting to take pictures.

7. Not wanting to go out.

I lost 60 pounds and I AM NEVER GOING BACK!!!

Ditto that!

I can relate to soooo many of the things already listed here, I won't even bother with my own list. It would just duplicate most of yours.

Things I will Love when I lose the weight:

Feeling attractive again!
Gaining my self confidence back, not being so insecure.
Being comfortable in my own skin again.
Not being unneccessarily jealous of the "skinny" girls - LOL
Being able to wear regular shorts and CUTE clothes that I actually like! (funny how they don't make the clothes i like in my size - hmm weird LOL)

I'm sure there are many other things, but I'll keep it short. ;)

I was always chubby & worked my butt off to get outta the double digits... Then.I got pregnant & married, and became "comfortable". *sigh* Now I'm fat again.. I caught my husband looking @ porn... Why wouldn't he though, I never give him any cause I hate my body. While we were watching tv an ab workout commercial came on and he asked if the girls came with it. I feel so ashamed that I let myself get this way again. He fell in love with a size 2, not a 14.

I won't miss the disrespect

I notice when I am fat that men hit on me. But when I am at a normal weight, I get treated with much more respect, and I don't get the overt sexual advances.

Just because I am fat does not mean I am desperate for sex. I am happily married and wear a wedding ring. I think because I am currently fat some men must think I have low self esteem and would easily jump in bed with them. It infuriates me that some men jump to this conclusion just by looking at me. They have no idea who I am and how much self esteem I have.
