I won't miss:

Constantly having an upset stomach and/or heartburn...my sister and I always thought we had IBS, but it seems as though eating low carb has greatly helped.

The total drop in energy after eating a mid-day sugary snack from the vending machine...I did this at work, and I always felt like I was going to fall asleep afterwards.

Not being able to fit my a** into my favorite pair of jeans...can't quite get in them yet, but the day's coming

Having to buy the ugly industrial-looking bras.

Having rolls when I sit down and trying to sit up straighter so that they aren't as noticeable.

Having to wear jeans in the summer because I'm too self-conscious to show my thighs in public!

Hmmm speaking of which YampiePie, that makes me think of all the times I have been seated in a restaurant and draped my coat over my lap to conceal flab..... diligently pulled down shorts so I could hide the "gross" part of my thighs (when I wore shorts!), pulled the waist of my pants up so that it flattened my belly (though I couldn't breathe), put my coat/sweater/younameit back on so I could sit down and "let my belly breathe" (I have way more!)

That's exactly how I feel! For instance, despite being perfectly able, I haven't went upstate to see my friends in close to nine months. Why? I feel they'll like me better if I can lose weight before I see them. I'm through with waiting, and I want to make it happen! : )

I won't miss laying on the bed to zip up my size 22 jeans.

I won't miss this double chin.

I won't miss having to size up a booth in a restaurant to see if I'll fit without my boobs spilling over on the table.

I let the pleasure of the moment override the pleasure of achieving the goal.

I am guessing this is my issue. I have been finding myself hungry after I go to bed. I don't feel like noise while everyone is sleeping and cooking some sort of meal for myself. Mostly I find some sort of solution, but last night I caved and ate premade prepackaged carbage(1st cheat since 1/1). I am wondering if I eat more during the day if that will solve the hunger problem? or, if the hunger is coming from somewhere else. As a backround, I generally leave the house around 6pm and don't get back til 1030(kids hockey), so I don't have alot of opportunity to eat after 6. When I get home I worry about putting hubs carb dinner away and getting everyone in bed, not cooking for myself. I guess its not til I get in bed and I am not busy anymore that I notice that I am hungry.

I fear overeating during the day because I am not horribly hungry, but I wonder if that sets me up to be hungry later.

as my punishment, I woke up this morning to a growling stomach caused by the lovely sugar crash. I DID NOT MISS THAT WHILE I WAS LOW CARBING!!!

You've done a great job, without one cheat since the New Year. Done, just be done with it and move on. So, learn what the trigger moment was and why- which I think you're on to(not eating, letting yourself get to hungry-i posted about that just a little while back if you want to read that tread-and the falling for a carb loaded choice)
So with that- now what are you going to do?
One meal- one day, one month, one year.......now it's up to you. I know for me, I am so much better off if I just stop where I'm at, don't go on with the screw up, and return to my clean eating. I hope that helps. You are a busy Mom, wife and lady- plan ahead.... And kick some butt-
One HOT HOCKEY MOM on the way- the envy of all

I will not miss...

Thank you so much for this thread. It is so inspiring!

I know a lot of these will be repeats of others struggles and successes... but I'm just starting so I feel it's important for me to make my own list.



I will NOT miss trying SO hard to find a top that fits to wear to a special event only to be asked "When are you due?" by perfect strangers when I'm not pregnant nor have I ever been! Seriously? What a way to ruin a night! And it's happened more times than I can count!

I will NOT miss the days of binge eating that follows the pregnancy question because of being so depressed. (Talk about making a problem WORSE!)

I will NOT miss trying to size up a booth, or roller coaster seat in my mind hoping to make sure I'll fit.

I will NOT miss being the biggest girl in the room.

I will NOT miss being jealous of my friends who are either naturally thin or have had success in their weight loss journeys.

I will NOT miss trying to hide how much I ate from my husband. "No really honey... this box of cereal was almost empty when I sat down."

I will NOT miss being at a water-park and only being able to go on one slide because the walk up is just too exhausting. (Aside from worrying what I look like in a swimsuit.)

I will NOT miss the fear and shame of seeing someone I knew in High School.

I will NOT miss being embarrassed to go for a walk or ride my bike in my own neighborhood.

I will NOT miss feeling ugly, worthless and ashamed.

I will NOT miss feeling inadequate or embarrassed to be intimate with my husband.

I will NOT miss walking past all the cute clothes to look for the section with the huge knit clothes with hibiscus flowers all over them! (Seriously! Why do they think every fat person wants to wear giant flowers all over their shirt???)

And you don't have to wait to long for all of these to be a reality.
I am so happy for you to write your own list. We all need to put it down into our own words of truth. Good for you.....
tearfully..................happy

I won't miss eating a whole tray of chocolate zingers and telling my husband he already stocked them, then buying my own stash secretly and hiding them.

I never would have been caught eating a typical meal out in public "before". Now, I could care less who sees me chowing down on my bunless quad stacker at Burger King.

I won't miss being ignored by employees while shopping.

I won't miss watching my family go for a walk but I can't 'cause my feet hurt.

I won't miss hating myself because I overate and feel miserable.

I won't miss fat clothes stores either and their high prices or ugly clothing design.

I won't miss unsensitive comments like, "Oh, I was going to get beach towels for you and your husband when you stay here", or "I think women over 200 lbs aren't feminine". (Actually said to me!)

I won't miss feeling like I'm going to break people's chairs (lawn chairs especially) when I sit in them.

I won't miss telling people I don't want them to take my picture.

I won't miss all the headaches, gas, and bloated feelings when I eat carbage.

I'm sure there's more that I won't miss that I haven't thought of right now and I won't miss that either...

I don't miss the gas.

I don't miss the heartburn.

I don't miss the afternoon sleepies.

I don't miss the secret eating.

I won't miss the sweaty painful "great beneath" of my apron.

I won't miss knocking stuff over with my bum. (Umm...I might never miss that! Ha!)

I won't miss having a 2 at the front of my clothing size.

Yeah. The "chub rub." I won't miss that either.

I hear you-- I'm being very happy that for the first time, I didn't think I looked horrible when playing music onstage last night.

I don't miss being complacent-- it led to a whole lot of hurt.

This is a good thread. I appreciate all the positive thoughts!

A few weeks ago I started a thread over in the Induction sub-forum called "I haven't had --- in --- long"... it was supposed to be a place to be proud of the things you had left behind. But it sort of turned into people talking about those foods with a bit of longing! That wasn't my point-- I am pleased to be able to say I haven't had --- in --- long, and I don't miss it.

Anything I have given up is well worth giving up for the benefits I've experienced.
