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!

Excellent thread. I don't have anything yet, but sure hope to as I go along.

Somebody a few pages back mentioned not missing the way her arms made a "C" shape hanging at her sides. I hate that too, and can't wait until my arms go down straight by my sides again.

I just stumbled on this for the first time and it was really motivating. It has all pretty much been covered but I thought i would add a few

I don't miss

the anxiety around going to a new restaurant in case the booth was too small or the tables too close together (and trying to be one of the first ones there to have a better chance at finding and appropriate seat)

worrying that I wouldn't be able to buckle my seatbelt in someone's car...and not for safety reasons (ditto airplanes)!

the feeling of simultaneously being the person who stands out and the person who is invisible

Finding any physical exertion a challenge

I won't miss:

Avoiding anything because of my size or health...my weight has had a huge dampening effect on my adventurousness.

Never again having to make sure there is a booth/seat I can fit in when going out to a movie, dinner or social event.

I don't miss feeling like I'm leaning over a beach ball to tie my shoes!

I don't really miss bread, although I was sure I would.

I don't miss being forced to the end of the rack where the XXL shirts, all 4 of them, are. The options in L/XL are way more vast!

*I do still sorely miss having cereal for breakfast though.

I don't miss being the fattest woman in the room.

I don't miss not being able to find cute golf outfits in the pro shop that I can fit into.

I don't miss wearing black.

I don't miss my back-fat rolls.

I don't miss painful hip joints or tired feet.

Thanks for resurrecting this thread--it's a good one.

I went to a meeting yesterday wearing my smaller jeans, and for the first time, a smaller shirt. It was white, something I rarely wear, because white shows so much. I had to leave the room a few times, and as I walked away, I smiled because they were seeing a smaller me! I did not miss at all the excess weight I had been carrying around. As I re-entered the room, I was smiling because I was much slimmer and trimmer than previously.
As I sit here typing this, I am wearing clothes that are too big because I have work to do that are cool and that I need to be able to move freely in. I'll go check a box or two to find something that fits better.
I won't miss wearing baggy clothes, or wearing an appropriate size that is stretched across the bod!

All of my clothes hang loosely on my wonderful, slim body! I joyously release and let go of excess body weight, mass and unneeded tissue every day!

I don't miss the 2pm office Carb crash. It had gotten to the point where I seriously considered lying down on the floor of my office to take a nap at lunch. Now, I'm so energetic I have to go for a walk at lunch so I'm not climbing the walls! My energy is almost annoying for the other office workers who are suffering what I was before LC.

I agree. I wish every single person on this thread could stick it out and get to goal and stay there. Makes me wonder what happened to each one. I do love it when I see those that are at goal or below and continued to update their stats. Let's just imagine that the others are at goal and living the low carb life, but just don't use the site anymore.
