I don't miss spending a fortune on clothes that I thought were hiding the weight.

I don't miss waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air.

I don't miss feeling like my heart would explode when I walked up hill.

I don't miss the horror of seeing myself in pictures.

I don't miss granny panties.

I don't miss the absolute sadness that I felt for being an obese wife and mother.

I don't miss suffering through the painful side effects of PCOS including one surgery.

I don't miss feeling like I was "less" than I could be.

Yes, yes, yes.

I will never miss feeling like I'm waiting to live my life--waiting for weightloss and sitting on the sidelines.

hi

i won't miss :

- deleting image after image in my digital camera trying to look less fat in different angles but still failing

- wearing long sleeves or cardigan in hot weather

- called big built / big boned / plump

- tying my hair in various ways desperately to make my face look less broad

- being sluggish and bloated in the mornings

- not being able to remove rings on the finger due to the swelling from the fats!

- feeling guilty after finishing an entire pringles potato chips bottle

- having the constant urge and obsession to clean up the plate

- having to suck in my tummy almost all the time

- my daughter not recognising me in my wedding pics ( i still look much thinner during my wedding, but at least now she can tell it's Mummy in the pics~! haha)

- restarting a "diet" everyday

- feeling disappointed with myself at the end of every day

- having the stupid flu, sinus, blocked nose esp after carb overload

- being afraid after reading news of people dying suddenly of cardiac arrests etc

- the loss of motivation to groom myself as the weight increases .. eg trimming of eyebrows, applying nice makeup, doing all the girly fun stuff like manicure etc

- the fear of bumping into old friends who look astonished by my weight gain

- always using the excuse of having given birth, that's why gaining weight

- lying to a new hairstylist that I just gave birth not long, so as to have an excuse for being fat

- pulling the sleeves of cotton t-shirts to make them looser and less tight-fitting at the arms

- stretching t-shirts to enlarge them (similar to point above)

- not being able to resist the urge to have dessert even when I'm full, bloated, lethargic and just wanna sleep... but still... always feeling i'm shortchanged cos without dessert, a meal is not complete (?!) haha

- having reservations of laughing out loud, even at the funniest joke, cos of not being truly happy inside.... it's like not wishing to draw attention to myself too

- avoid being intimate with hubby due to inferiority complex

- feeling paranoid about hubby looking at other slim, beautiful girls and worried about being dumped or betrayed

- hating all beauty contest shows / fashion shows / mocking jealously at rail-thin models (not because I feel sad for them, but just plain jealous! Being thin is still way better than FAT!)

- searching hours for something to wear for job interviews, wedding dinners or even not attending gatherings to avoid being seen!

- wondering if i got rejected for certain jobs due to looking unpresentable (come to think of it, i may have failed the job interviews cos i'm not confident, not that they truly look down on me for being plump)

- not being able to do my work properly, unable to concentrate cos always thinking about what "delicious" food to eat for the next meal, and the next, and the next......

- not wanting to hang any pictures at home, even family portraits... letting my girl and hubby down... being unfair to them

- unable to sing a song properly even cos always having sorethroat from eating junk food... chips, fried carby stuff etc etc

- having either diarrhea or constipation.... too much sugary cereal n too little vegetables

- being recognised and known to KFC and Mcdonald's staff for being a regular patron

I don't miss having fingers swollen like sausages from carb bloat

I don't miss the gas

I don't miss the raging hunger pangs from low blood sugar after a sugar crash

I don't miss being owned by a bag of hersheys

I won't miss being too embarrassed to see people I know or meet new people because I am ashamed of my weight

I won't miss being out of breath going up 2 flights of stairs

I won't miss potentially giving myself diabetes and high blood pressure and joint problems caused by extra weight. I also won't miss the $$$$ that you have to pay to treat those diseases

I WILL take my kids to a waterpark, and I WILL put on a suit, and I WILL be able to climb those stairs without passing out. This is something I HAVE missed for many trips and I regret it

This thread should be stickied for people that are having weak days

I don't miss being invisible or worse, the looks of disgust or contempt.

I don't miss being limited to shopping in only a few stores.

I don't miss granny panties either. In fact I have 52 pairs of VS sexy panties now (yes, I have a problem:blush.

I don't miss my raging hunger

I don't miss trying to hide the results of a binge.

I don't miss hubby's frustration with my negativity because I never felt pretty.

I don't miss foot and knee pain

I don't miss being too weak to pick up my kids.

I do not miss all the lies I told so I could stay home alone and binge eat instead of going out to be social. The lies I told to explain why an entire box of waffles and a box of cereal is gone, that was just purchased that day.

Yes, speaking of husbands, he said to me this past weekend that it has been months since the last time I asked him "does this make me look fat??" while getting ready to go somewhere (and we all know the answer should have been yes, because I was fat :blush: although he was always kind enough to say I looked great )

So I really don't miss trying on a hundred different outfits when going out, trying to figure out which one would make me look "thin."

Great thread!!

I already don't miss:

High blood pressure
Being too big for the largest clothes in the plus size section of Target!
Towels (and bathsheets) not going all the way around me
Being unable to reach certain awkward places that humans NEED to be able to reach
Not fitting in booths in restaraunts
Spending half my income on food and junkfood at that
Hating myself
Having only one workable sexual position
My knees giving way
Being so unfit I could not walk a block without losing breath
Feeling suffocating sensations as I was smothered by my own enourmous boobies while I slept
Sleep apnea
Not fitting in movie seats
Being CERTAIN I was the fattest person present in any given gathering

Things I won't miss in the future:

Looking like a lump in just about everything
Being unable to wear boots because my calves are too big
Being too scared to exercise in public for fear of what people will think
Being unable to sit on my boys lap
Putting up with people wondering what my boy sees in me
Being unwilling to do any water sport
Being unable to ski/rockclimb/horseride due to my weight
Having to get the fat jokes in myself first

The Obesity Tax (teehee)

Target , what is so nice is being able to buy cute clothes that i love for a fraction of the cost of the ones I don't!

Boots- yep!!

Watersports- yes and a kick a-- life jacket.....

Reaching needed to be reached area's- watched in horror my Mom ( who i adore) painfully go through this after knee replacement surg. this last summer- She's a nurse and for her to suffer this personal indignity was awful.....can't even stand to remember this.....

This is a huge one for me as well. I know my husband is not embarrassed of me, nor has he ever acted like anything other than proud of me, however I too am embarrassed for him. I worry about what this friends or co-workers say about him once they meet me.

I so cried when I read your post. I thought I was only one who felt this way and until now I have been to ashamed to admit it to anyone.
