Thanks for resurrecting this post. Hadn't seen it before, and really love it!

I don't miss:
Being tired all the time
Having heartburn all the time
Nearly falling asleep while driving (deadly scary!)
Feeling cheated because I couldn't eat anything "fun (can we say cheesecake and cream?)
White bread

I won't miss:
Shopping in plus sizes (who thinks we look good in knits?)
Worrying abut fitting into roller coaster seats
Being "the fat one"

I am troubled by the threads that celebrate what people miss...I dont miss the hypoglycemia out of control..I dont miss the weight..I dont miss the inability to play with my kids actively...the depression..the incredible fatigue...the binges...the FATIGUE...the feeling older than my age...shopping in the HUGE sizes...the health problems...the joints that ACHED...my lack of interest ( in the obvious) the shame..

No snickers easter egg..nor reeses egg...nor malted milk ball..jelly bean or PEEP will EVER EVER be worth giving up what I have NOW...

I refuse to glorify the objects that kept me in prison...
It may be just me but those things are poison to my recovery..and when I stupidly relapse they NEVER EVER taste as good as I remember and the cost is toxic to me

I don't miss feeling old in my 20s. I don't miss stomach-churning indigestion and gas. I don't miss frequent headaches. I don't miss allowing WW points for the cookie I just had to have, and then going over on points for the second cookie. I don't miss low-fat sour cream. I don't miss crying in a pile of clothes in my closet. I don't miss indentations on my stomach from the button of my jeans. I don't miss needing multiple beers or glasses of wine to feel sexy when it was time to go home with my boyfriend, only to hate myself when I woke up hungover.

I don't miss heartburn! Or gas!

When I get a little further along, I know I won't miss:
  1. Getting winded after one flight of stairs
  2. Rashes in my foldy places
  3. Difficulty with self-pedicures

And lots more!

  • Feeling self-conscious in dresses due to my prominent stomach bulge, avoiding them altogether
  • Trying on 3-5 pairs of jeans in my well-stocked closet (full of stuff that became too small) in order to find something that actually fit
  • Buying shirts with an X in front of them, or jeans bordering on plus size
  • Dark, embarrassing skin patches on my body due to insulin resistance
  • Dreading clothing shopping trips with my mom

If you can't tell, I'm a million times happier. Man, I do miss the temperature regulation that all of that blubber gave me though. I'm freezing right now!

OK. Fun. I won't miss:
-- Thighs rubbing together and bleeding when I'm wearing a skirt or dress! This happened to me for the first time a few summers ago.
-- The tired feeling from carb overload
-- The shame of my trash can at work being filled with snack wrappers.
-- The nurse at my oncologist's office revising my weight up by 5-15 pounds at every visit
-- Having only 3 pair of pants that remotely fit.

Thank you for bumping this thread again.

I think all the "I miss this sugar cr@p food" threads lately are playing with fire. I have just refused to even open them for weeks now.

I don't miss being sick.. period. I won't miss being FAT when my body is nice and lean.

I am an ADDICT. I am (can anyone really say "was"?) addicted to sugar and wheat. I don't miss it. When I do start to MISS IT I promised myself I would come here for a quick kick in the arse. So far.. so good.

I don't miss my moodswings.

or my heartburn

or my eczema

or my crazy out of control sugar cravings. VERY glad they are under control... now I feel like I have the hunger of a "normal" person.

This and I only come to the Main Lobby at lunchtime. Even the lowcarb recipe threads make me hungry! It's about 12:30pm my time and while I haven't made lunch yet, I know that any cravings can be dealt quickly!


There are so many things I miss from my relatively short time spent at goal... and Easter candy sure isn't one of them.

Here's what I won't miss about my body today:
  • The feeling of being unworthy/invisible. People really do treat you differently when you're smaller and it's sad.

    Digging and digging through my closet to find nothing that looks the way it should.

    Getting winded doing seemingly nothing.

    Sucking in my stomach until it's sore.

    Being afraid of flying or going to an amusement park.

    The limited activity with the hubby and knowing it's just not the same for either of us.

    Having rubbermaid tubs full of clothes that will fit me again 'someday'... that someday is coming!

Here's my list - I know a lot have already been mentioned, but I need to type this out for my own viewing

I won't miss:
- IBS symptoms - even after 2 weeks I'm seeing slight improvement!
- A full mall of sizes in my closet
- Wearing the same outfits each week b/c nothing in my "mall" fits!
- Saying "When I lose weight, I'll..." - tired of putting my life on hold b/c of weight!
- Social anxiety b/c of weight gain over the past few years
- "Chub rub" that I read earlier... and someone mentioned having independent thighs! I can't wait for that!
- That constant, lurking feeling that my husband, though SWEARS he loves me at any size and is so supportive, might secretly wish I was thinner
- Buying a pair of pants on sale and saying they're "motivation" to get thinner - I just want to buy a pair of pants b/c they fit and I love them!
- Untagging myself in pictures on facebook b/c I look like a cow

I feel like this list could go on and on....

I do not miss:

- The mortification of having to ask for a seat belt extension on airplanes
- Begging friends NOT to post pics of me on Facebook because I'm so embarrassed by what I look like in those pictures
- People obviously choosing to sit somewhere other than next to me on public transportation
- Rejection by every single person I'm interested in (now I more often than not they flirt back.. but that comes with its downsides too... danger! danger will robinson!)
- Hating clothes shopping (again, LOVING it now comes with dangers... poor wallet)
- The rashes
- At my highest weight, yes, incontinence problems (couldn't cough without... yeah... because all that fat was pressing down on my bladder)
- Never feeling satisfied with food, and always fantasizing about my next meal...
- The physically sick feeling after overeating sugars/carbs
- My doctor not letting me ignore that I was *morbidly* obese. Morbidly.
- Having to buy a new scale because I was at the TOP WEIGHT mine even recognized
- When I worked hard to lose weight, STILL being over 250... because I'd capped out at such a high weight
- My liver problems (persistance tumor-like growth that disappeared finally... and fatty liver... and liver doc predicting cirrhosis if I didn't lose weight)
- Diabetes lurking around the corner (I was pre-diabetic. No longer.)
- The insanity of KNOWING that under it I was sexy and attractive and simply NOT SEEING the fat woman everyone else did.... heartbreaking to realize that when people saw me... they just saw a fat woman. I was always so much more (intelligent, great underneath it all) AND so much less (a physically attractive person underneath the fat, and I *knew* that and it hurt that others didn't).

Really, really, do not miss that.

I don't miss...

-Shopping at only two stores. Buying all plus sizes.
-Seeing the numbers go up on the scale each year and trying to accept it
-Trying on every last thing in my closet and getting upset because nothing looked good
- having fat rolls... they are gone now. I have pudge, but not defined rolls anymore.
- Eating instead of being unhappy... eating to distract myself from feeling sad.
- lectures from doctors
- not being able to run for even a minute (I ran for 2h 30min in a row last summer.. on purpose, haha)
- acid reflux
- having restaurants, food, snacks, etc as a hobby instead of enjoying the amazing world around me more fully


What I WON'T miss in the future is my hips and BOOTY. I've been working on getting them to leave but they're like unwanted houseguests. Not giving up though.

Yes, it is. Thanks for bumping it.

It's too easy to start yearning for some nasty junk food and forget all of those awful things that being addicted to it used to make us feel.

It's a little depressing to see how many of the posters aren't around anymore and never reached their goal weights though, in spite of the determination they seemed to have. More proof that we need these reminders often.

Although I have a long way to go, there are already things that I don't miss after losing 50lbs.:
1.being mortified when I would see my reflection.
2.being scared to try and sit in a booth at a restaurant.
3.not being able to shop in any dept. store
4.not being able to even remotely see my cheekbones.

I'm sure I will have many others in the future.

What don't I miss? Wow, so many things...
  • wearing a pressurized gas mask to bed in order to sleep normally
  • waking up at 4am with burning acid in my throat and lungs, and downing fistfuls of tums
  • being perpetually sick with some respiratory complaint and annoying everyone around me with incessant coughing, sniffling and throat-clearing.
  • robotically cramming in more and more USDA-approved bread, pasta etc. while dissociatively wondering why I can't stop
  • taking boatloads of statins and betablockers and proton pump inhibitors and blood-thinners and Afrin and SSRIs like the training-wheels diabetic I was
  • being out of breath from just putting on socks
  • watching my O2 saturation drop to 83% when lying down because I found it more restful not to breathe with all that weight on my diaphragm
  • dressing up for a party then sweating thru all the nice clothes just walking to the door, even in winter--then seeing the pictures and realizing how hopeless it had been to even try to look good.
  • social invisibility--despite being the biggest living thing in the room
  • looking at old hiking/climbing photos and realizing "I couldn't do that today, since I can barely make it around the block without the backpack."
  • the constant fatigue and mental fog that attend a life centered on wheat & sugar
  • falling asleep while driving...because with apnea you never get enough rest. SCARY.

Yeah, screw all of that...

I don't miss:
  • The doctor looking from over his glasses 'You should lose weight' and 'You should eat less'
  • Checking yellow pages for plus size clothes shop just to discover they fit my body not my pocket
  • Checking all sizes at reglar stores and discovering no one fits, then doing the same in the male department and no one fits either.
  • Pretenting my presence at the gym is just casual, just trying to avoid noticing the stares.
  • The time when a 6lb dumbell was heavy.
  • When a cruel comment on someone fat, but not me, would have me offended as well, and most likely crying for days.
  • My father's stares at my thigh when I walked around. I think this was the main motivator to my weight loss.
  • The constant sugar craving.
  • Thighs brushing and making a rash!
  • Backpain!
  • Always fumbling with a towel in the ladies changing room at the gym, so to be covered at all times. Hanging around naked is so much easier!
  • Being totally unaware of what I was eating, of its nutritional value and yet wondering 'I am eating so many carbs and they say they are gotod for you. Then why am I fat? *facepalm*
  • Lying to myself that nothing worked, when I had not really tried anything at all.
  • People's stares at the store.
  • Tofu. Nobody misses tofu.
  • The know-it-all attitude of my first nutritionist and her cardio addiction.
  • The carbs-are-good-for-you attitude or my second nutritionist and her 'You should eat it even if you are allergic, so you get used'
  • My excess of weight being the excuse for just about everything that happened to my health, even when it clearly was not the issue
  • Feeling just unable to hike more than a few miles and stopping every minute
  • Checking fancy fitness equipment at the sports store but not buying at all, since I wouldn't be using it anyways
  • The old HR's comment 'You should really come to the ladies spa night, it is not so bad to be fat!!' (said from a very skinny woman) *double facepalm*
  • Being unable to make do cook with different ingredients. It's all too easy when you have flour.
  • Teaching young trainees at work and feeling fat while sitting beside them
  • Standing up in a meeting room during training and see the stares to my hips
  • Being clueless what to cook tonight. I am still clueless but now have a base, meat and vegs!

I don't miss the seatbelt extenders on airplanes.
I don't miss the heartburn.
I don't miss not fitting in booths at restaurants.
I don't miss buying clothes because they fit rather than buying clothes because I like them.

This thread is making me want to cry but it is the kick in the behind I needed to remind me I am back at almost my highest weight ever!

So...I won't miss all of the above and

Squeezing into my clothing because I refuse to buy a bigger size but living in fear of my pants splitting in public (has happened before).

Taking the underwire out of my bra so it won't cut into the bulges of fat
