What I DON'T/WON'T Miss

[COLOR="DarkRed"]
After looking at the I miss _____________ thread, it really got me thinking about what I "miss"..........nope, can't do it. No offense to those who have posted, I just can't do it. 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........

I don't miss getting WINDED climbing 8 steps in the parking garage.

I don't miss having to shop in the "old lady" department.

I don't miss wearing elastic waist bands.

I don't miss one-piece bathing suits.

I don't miss that horrible feeling I got inside when I saw pictures of myself. I didn't know I looked how I looked. Seeing a photo is what made me finally get it in gear and just do it.

I don't miss feeling frumpy.

I didn't see the other thread and I am not sure if it was about food, but just in case...

I do NOT miss

potato chips, baked potatoes , french fries, cake, donuts, candy bars, pasta, bread (although I do eat low carb bread or Ezekiel bread now in moderate amounts), cookies or ...well anything.

This is a great thread.

YES - elastic wastbands. How could I forget

Did you know I was once sooo sick with strep throat, but I wouldn't go because of that scale. What was I thinking......

I don't miss feeling so freaking, god-awful tired. So tired that I'd drag myself home from the office (after gobbling down donuts, fast food, and unhealthy client lunches out) eat ANOTHER horrible meal, drink two or even three glasses of wine trying to feel better, then binge on chips or cookies until it was time to crawl into bed with even more goodies to eat while I read a book. Then to toss and turn all night with reflux, and not be able to get comfortable even when that would finally subside because I was too porky to lie comofortably in my favorite positions. And then have to drag myself out of bed in the morning to start the whole awful process again.

On low carb, I spring out of bed in the morning, fly through my exercise routine, breakfast healthfully and am able to resist the donuts in the office and the high carb nightmare fast food of the day. I come home to eat a healthy low carb meal, skip the wine unless it's my birthday, do some relaxing callanetics and go to bed and sleep like a baby. No reflux, no tossing around trying to find a comfortable place to deposit my flab.

WOE: doing it my way :)
Start Date: Jan. 6th/09
-positioning myself in pictures so i won't look *so* awful
-buying stretchy jeans and/or clothes to fool myself i'm not as fat as i really am
-missing out on things i could be doing with my sons, that i don't do out of embarassment or shame
-binge eating by myself
-dreading bumping into people from the past because i know they are thinking how much weight i have gained or how i have let myself go
-dreading meeting colleagues or friends of my husbands...i don't want to be the *fat* wife, and although he's not embarassed of me, i'm embarassed for him
-dreading any kind of family function, party...you name it
-my oldest son starts school in the fall, and i don't want him to be teased for having a fat mom

i'm only part way through my journey at this point, so these are all things i hope to (no, PLAN to!) say i WON'T miss. i'm not yet at the point that i can say i don't miss them though, with the exception of the binge eating....lc has knocked that one off

I will not miss having to pass by stores with those cute (but small!) clothes in the window.

I will not miss being the "heavy girl with the great personality".

I will not miss wearing jeans that cover up to my bellybutton.

I will not miss coming back from a night out with my friends with no pictures because I was too self-conscious to be in any.

I will not miss laying on the beach in a one-piece swimsuit feeling like a beached whale.

I am looking forward to being as beautiful on the outside as I feel on the inside.

I will not miss SNORING!

I won't miss shopping in plus size!

I won't miss hating feeling so fat.

I won't miss struggling to shave my legs.

I won't miss being out of breath.

I won't miss struggling to put on pantyhose.

I won't miss "nothing fits" song I use to scream in the dressing rooms.

I won't miss feeling the carb induced coma.

I won't miss my big belly.

I didn't mean to offend with the "I miss..." post. I just thought that for those of us that are just getting started and missing some of the comfort foods that made us fat in the first place, it might help to find out that there are low carb alternatives that will make us feel so much better. I'm looking forward to all the I misses you all are enjoying. Thanks for reminding me what I have to look forward to.

I don't miss counting calories and points (a la Weight Watchers)

I don't miss taking expensive prescription medications for GERD

I don't miss wearing long sweaters in the hopes of covering up my large A$$

I don't miss spending so much time trying to fill the empty void in my belly with low-points CARBAGE (again, a la Weight Watchers)

I don't miss my thighs rubbing together and my pantyhose binding my middle (and I also don't miss NOT wearing pantyhose any more and hope to never again!)

I don't miss wondering if I can find something LOW POINTS to eat while dining out

Most of all I don't miss sugar, transfats, refined carbohydrates and overly-processed CRAP that passes for food!
