1. If I need it, skin removal (I don't know if I'll need it or not... but if I get there and need it, I deserve to save up the money for it)

2. To surprise people that haven't seen me for a while (hoping to do that to some extent at Christmas)

3. A baby (not waiting for my goal for this, but we've been trying for a couple of years now and getting closer to my goal will make it much easier).

Love this thread!

Other than the obvious new wardrobe and being able to shop in normal stores, I want:

* A new family picture, and to feel PROUD to be in it!

* To be able to feel like the fun mom and go on adventures without worrying that I'll be judged, that I won't be able to keep up, or that I can't fit somewhere

* To feel like I'm actually living (and enjoying) life and not just sitting on the sidelines watching.

(also, to finally be able to wear sexy bras and under wear again, to finally be able to feel stylish and feel some confidence, and to be the best role model for my daughter as I can be!)

Let's see:

* New wardrobe, of course - edited to add: BOOTS! I love boots, but haven't been able to wear them in more than a decade because my calves are so big. I can't wait to be able to wear cute boots.
* Not cringing when I see pictures of myself
* Wearing shorts and short skirts in the heat - I always wear jeans and it can be unpleasant in the summer heat.

Wow! You are all such an inspiration to me. I love this thread, and I'm so sad to say that I've not given this topic much thought. (Maybe that's just my way of not getting too excited in case I fail) In any case I'm going to say my three and then add a list to my sparkpage.

1. I want to not be limited in the clothing that I buy/make. (I knit and sew and can't make/buy many articles due to my size.)
2. Sign up for an athletic event and not feel stressed about not finishing/being the slowest one there.
3. Have the confidence to say "Damn I look good." (I'm working on the mental piece and the physical piece.)

2. To be able to cross my legs. It's so sophisticated, yet so uncomfortable now.

3. A boyfriend. This will be the last piece of pulling myself together after divorce; house emoticon , car emoticon , date emoticon ! I'd love to start dating again!

My 3 rewards that I will get when at goal:

1) Canada's Wonderland. I haven't been in 12 years as I haven't fit in the seats.

2) A new wardrobe. But not just any wardrobe, one I love and buy because it's me, not because it's all that is available in my size.

3) Skydiving. As soon as I hit 250lbs I'll be jumping! And I'd like to try lots of things with weight limits or fitness requirements: zip lining, white water rafting, canoeing, running, skiing the list goes on!!:

Great thread!

2: to be able to go into any store and pick out clothes without worrying they won't come big enough.

Three things I want hmmmm....

1. A tummy tuck. I'll be losing enough weight where I will probably need one so I'm saving for that.

2. A whole new wardrobe. I've never been my goal weight as an adult so I will have to buy everything new. I don't mind though lol.

3. I can't think of anything else material wise but enough will power to never have to lose this much weight again. I never want to gain this weight back.....EVER!

Three things I want when I get to my goal weight:

1. Three inch high heels. I had to donate all my heels from college/grad school because my body is too heavy to be supported by them.
2. A new wardrobe. "Plus size" clothes have come a long way, but I mean, really. I want something in a single digit size again!
3. To go rock climbing. Always wanted to do it, never could.

There are so many little things along the way to motivate myself that hopefully this will be a fun journey. Thanks for your support!

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

I want new clothes. There is nothing more embarrassing than needing to shop in the big and tall section when you are at 5'5.

I want to go on a vacation, somewhere warm, where I can take off my new shirt :) and be comfortable walking around topless with the sun on my skin.

I want to have a gym membership where there is a pool and feel like i don't have to hide until all the fit people are out of the pool.

3 things I'll want when I reach my goal

1. A Kayak. My husband loves kayaking - I've never been. I haven't been under the weight limit on a regular kayak (190 lbs) since I was in high school.

2. New nice clothes, not cheap crap that won't hold it's shape and stay looking nice. Plus it will help to keep me at my goal since I'm not going to be buying that nice wardrobe a second time in a larger size.

3. I hope I find this along the way - but peace with my body and happiness with being active with my family. A happiness that is contagious with the people around me, and hopefully inspiring them to find their own passions and achieve their own goals.

1. Clothes! Women's clothes! I'm so sick of only wearing men's t-shirts because they are wider, longer and have normal sleeves. That includes a bathing suit and some pretty shoes that I don't have to buy in double extra wide widths.
2. Disney! Disney! Disney! The last time we went, I hurt my shoulder just by rolling over in my sleep and I ended up with water blisters on my toes and the balls of my foot (all because of my weight), but Hubby still dragged me around the park for 14 hours. I was miserable! I don't want to be miserable when we go again....and we BETTER go again! :)
3. I want to run in a color run so badly! I don't care which one it is. I want to wear a cute white outfit, a tutu and get color bombed til you can't see my skin!

2) plenty of beach time. gimme sun and sand and no anxiety/lost pleasure due to weight
3) skin removal when i can afford such a thing

and the ability to reap the reward of not being so overweight, like lower blood pressure and blood sugars, less chronic pain from carrying this weight, confidence in myself, and im hoping the most to be more myself around people. im terribly guarded with everything i do right now

Who can stop at 3?? LOL

#1 to "fit" in places (turn-styles, airplane seats, auditorium seats, movie theater aisles, between chairs at restaurants, etc. etc.)

#2 to buy clothes that I really love, and that fit well, and that aren't uber expensive. I love some of the extended size stores out there, but they really make you pay for it.

#3 to be able to run and play with my 4th grade students, and to be a role model for them.

Clothes shopping (of course!) I love vintage/ retro. Can't wait to wear those styles!

Have a real wedding! One where I get a pretty dress that I feel beautiful in and lots of pictures will be allowed because I won't be ashamed to be in them.

Go to the beach with my family. For once won't get a lecture on my weight and will get to enjoy it.

1) New clothes - That's a given really. And while I don't think I'll be under a size 14, at least I'll be able to get those somewhere other than Lane Bryant (although I really do love their clothes, as expensive as they may be)

2) Road trip! Take a couple weeks and road trip it to San Diego. I want to do some of the Safari tours at the Safari Park that requires participants to be under 250 lbs. The big obstacle here is cost - I either have to find a place to board my dogs (in which case I'll fly and cut my vacation down by cutting the travel) or take them with me and find a hotel that is dog friendly.

3) I want to pass a Navy PRT. My weight is the reason I was discharged from the Navy, and I want to pass the PRT again - 33% body fat, 1.5 mile run in under 15 minutes (actually, I don't know what the time limit is for my age anymore), pushups and situps - again, I don't know what I have to reach based on my age. but when I left the Navy in 2007 I only had to do 17 pushups and like 40 situps.

2. To be able to buy clothes because I like them not just because that's what fits and is in my price range.
3. To not have to worry if we go for a walk, to the beach, etc that I won't be able to do everything or that I'll be the one in the back sweaty while everyone else is just having fun.

1. I hope to be an inspiration and would help others if they too needed to loss weight.

2. Fit in those damn movie seats or in my son's case the school seats to watch his play. Those things I swear are meant for people without hips.

3. everyone says new clothes and I agree. It would be nice to be under the normal clothes size. I went to layne bryant recently and 1 pair of pants cost $80.00 that is crazy!

4. If we have the money I want to go see my friends back in CA, who have no idea I'm trying to lose weight and surprise them with a new me!

1. I will get a whole new wardrobe that I don't HAVE to buy at specialty shops.

2. I will go to Six Flags with my family and ride ALL the rides without fear I won't fit!

3. I will go to my favorite park with my family and go hiking all day and not worry about if I can manage a hike like that.

extras...

4. I will go buy myself a pair of super-cute cowgirl boots and not have to search Absolutely Everywhere for a pair that will accommodate my large calves! THIS is very important to me as I love boots and it is SO hard to find ones that fit right, at the moment.

and sit and talk to him awhile.

Because remembering him is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart

I want to wear some high heels without feeling like my feet are about to break in two!

Oh my gosh, would I love to wear a bikini. Not even a tiny one, just a two-piece swimsuit, and get some sun on my tummy!

And some elbow-length satin gloves...they won't go over my forearms. Yet!

Just realised these are all about clothes, lol. I guess I'm just tired of playing "lets see what Lane Bryant has this season."

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

1) New clothes from a store that does not specialize in Big Girl clothes. Looking forward to taking some of my skinny but very fashionable friends with me to pick out the clothes

2) Go on a fabulous beach holiday with my husband. I try to avoid this at the moment as I HATE being in a bathing suit.

3) Get on a plane (where the seatbelt fits and I dont spill over the chair) and go to an amusement park where I can fit on ALL the adult rides

I think if I ever reach this day I will be to busy sobbing out of sheer happiness and joy to do any of these things!

Those are GREAT! (And helpful coming from someone who has lost the weight before!) We live and learn! I have never in my adult life NOT been heavy. I worry a lot about the excess skin. I just keep hoping that if I lose at a reasonable pace, and do toning, that it won't be so bad!

One thing I'm excited for, is being able to raid my sister's closet! lol

1. I would love a new wardrobe! How fun it would be to be able to shop in regular sizes versus plus sizes!
2. To keep logging in here as part of my maintenance. I screwed up the last time I lost a bunch by quitting logging in, and I gained back a large portion of what I'd lost.
3. I will be checking around to find out about excess skin removal. My flab is horrible already, so I can only imagine what it'll look like when I am at a healthy weight.

Simple as that! Just think of 3 things you want to reward yourself with when you finally reach your goal! Maybe we'll get some great ideas from each other! emoticon (It's not strict...if you have more or less than 3, that's ok!)

mine are...

1. A wardrobe FULL of short dresses and skinny jeans!

2. A swimsuit that doesn't have a skirt attached!
(maybe an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini? lol)

3. A ticket to an Amusement Park!
(I'm always worried the restraints won't lock!) It would be nice to know that's not an issue!

SUFFER THE PAIN OF DISCIPLINE; OR SUFFER THE PAIN OF REGRET!!!

FALL down SEVEN times - STAND up EIGHT!

You don't have to go FAST, you just have to GO!
