My favourite things about losing weight are:
Having nice clothes.
Not having so many sizes of clothes in my closet.
Not feeling bloated and sick from over eating.
Looking forward to being at my goal so I can get rid of this "anxious" feeling.
Being able to climb up the stairs without breathing heavy!!!
Being able to walk around on vacation with the energy to enjoy everything!

I love losing weight, and I look forward to the time when I'll be at my goal weight....happy, healthy and strong.
Sandi

This might sound strange to a thin person who has never experienced it, but my favorite thing is suddenly existing again. I was telling my thin friend about this phenomenon and she, at first, found it hard to believe.

I have never been super morbidly obese so have never experienced people staring or making crude remarks about my size.

However I have been at that obese stage where you seem to cease to exist. People pass you on the street or in a store and it is like they don't even realize they have passed a person.

Then I will get down to that magical size (and it is a fairly consistent size) where suddenly I "reappear". People make eye contact again. They smile. They speak. They hold the door open as you approach after them. Amazing!

Is there anyone else who has noticed this?

Feeling great about myself!! I have to admit I kind of like the fact that some not-so-nice people are very bitter about me losing weight. I wish they'd joint the movement with me instead but as they put me down I can't help but smile as the pounds drop.
