some people lose weight and start to look trashy and dress in tight clothing that doesnt flatter any body type.

I'm looking forward to going swimming with friends. I've always just made up excuses why I couldn't go.

To be able to buy a taylored suit and look good in it. I had a pinstriped one that fit perfect and showed my waist line.

I want to travel and see all those places that I have always dreamed about.
Ya and the shopping for fun clothes too.
But the traveling, that's what keeps me motivated.

I love to swim, but will usually only do it when it's only my family and a bunch of people I'll never see again. Also, I'd love to shop at a non plus-size store.

Every pound I lose makes it that much easier for me to hit a 7 minute mile, every pound i lose makes it easier to climb the big hills faster. Every workout improves my recovery time. Every pound I keep off is one less I have to worry about later.

I will swim at pool parties! I usually say "I forgot my bathing suit," because I am embarrassed to be seen in a bathing suit. Once I lose some weight, I think I will be more confident to show off my body.

What i love most is when I'm in a good shape, and go shopping ,the clothes FIT. Like not a rare piece, but ALL, or definitely MOST of the clothes really fit, and look good. Then I can be picky if I like them or not, because of what I think, not because of the fact the piece looks like a crap on me anyway.

I'm cautious to remember that who I am is not the number on the scale...however, I do anticipate some great things from hitting that goal weight!
I hope I will stop looking at large women and wondering, "Oh no, is that how I look from behind?" and stop looking at thin women and thinking, "Why do I try? I'll never look as good as her!"
I already feel better about going out, more confident, I don't feel the need to wear so much makeup, I also have shrunk out of shopping at Lane Bryant (woo hoo!).
I think what I am MOST looking forward to is being able to shop anywhere, and try on anything (instead of digging all the way to the back of the rack and hoping that there is an XL or maybe even an XXL in there somewhere).
