I won't miss:

-trying my hardest to count every calorie - and nonetheless, seeing the scale continue to creep up. I was completely distraught and had no idea what I was doing wrong for many years.
-terrible fatigue
-terrible periods and cramps
-constant, low-level depression
-worrying that every bite would make me fat
-exercising only because I wanted to "burn calories" - now I do it for fun and because it makes me feel good.

What I WON'T miss (starting LC all over again after coming to the realization that this way is the ONLY way for me):

1. Waking up from 'food hangovers' and feeling like absolute crud for days on end.

2. The sensitivity I have to caffeine because I have eaten too many carbs (seriously, when i'm LCing - i have NO jitters, shakes, nothing).

3. Missing the gym because I felt like crap due to eating crappy. Duh.

4. Bad allergies.

5. Wondering if my jeans will fit when I go to put them on.

6. Feeling frumpy/bloated.

7. My teeth/gums bothering me because of how I ate.

8. My hair & nails breaking all the time due to poor nutrition.

9. Having ridiculous cravings for bad foods and going out of my way to go get them

10. Tummy issues. 'Nuff said.

11. And this is for the future: Waking up on my 30th birthday not feeling like a failure because I actually SUCCEEDED!

I think I need to print this out and stick it on my fridge....

What it leads me to do is to some how think they were the "good old days" Glory days. News flash Lisa- they weren't and I need to remember that. Very clearly!!! This is the time of our life. Getting lean, strong and healthy, nothing I put into my mouth got me closer to that. So....new thread for those that want to join in....


What do you soooo not miss or will not miss........

I'll gladly go first-

I don't miss-
swinging arm fat

I don't miss
my old hanging belly-nasty gross yuck
or the $10,000. to cut the junk off

I don't miss
back fat that would bulge out from bra- we see it all the time on others, do we think it looked any different on us?

I don't miss
not fitting on a ride with my kids/dh at Six Flags- I could have died 1000 deaths

I don't miss
feeling so fat and ugly in a room full of friends

I don't miss
the feeling of letting myself down-again and again

I don't miss
UGLY plus size clothes& missing out on what I really wanted to buy

I don't miss
thinking that I would always just have to be the fat girl with a pretty face

I'll be totally honest here-
I don't miss walking by Victoria freaken Secrets
and deep inside wanting to be able to go in there and by something to wear for my husband- and damn it I'm not talking just a new bra......fully enjoying him with or without the lights on.....with tears in my eyes....l I don't miss that!

Every year just passing by, not now, hopefully ever again. This is who was barried under all of that mess. I have so much to be thankful for. Sorry for the rant. I needed to put it down in words. I don't miss much.........[/COLOR]

Now it's your turn- think deeply- it helps all of us........
The Victoria's Secret one hit home, I can't bear the thought of being seen naked or being intimate most of the time without crying in the dark. Even though he's told me he doesn't care, I DO!

By the way, this is a great thread ... I'm going to cut and paste everybody's thoughts and keep it on fridge to keep me motivated.
