I want to:

1. Gain control over food/drinks so I can eat because I am hungry and for no other reason;
2. Wear the size of clothing (5) that I wore until my nasty divorce 16 years ago;
3. Have more energy;
4. Buy/wear/look good in a bikini again;
5. Show off my tattoos that I got when I turned 41 two years ago;
6. Shop in trendy stores and cheaper clothing stores and have everything look good (it seems like only expensive clothes look good on me being overweight);
7. Get a diamond tennis bracelet (made DH promise me that when I get to goal, I get one); and
8. Reclaim the body that God intended me to have.

I cannot wait until my clothing size is smaller than my shoe size!!!

I can not wait until I look into the mirror at my butt, and not have to move side to side to get the whole thing in the mirror!
I can not wait until I am as skinny as my sisters!
I can not wait until I can believe it when my husband says I am beautiful!
I can not wait to be able to fit into a bathsuit that I think is exceptable.
I can not wait to wear my tank tops!

Gosh there are so many things!

1. Rollercoasters!! (Target date: Summer 2007 with Dayna and our hubbies)
2. Rollerskating without worrying how hard I'll hit the ground
3. Painting my toenails myself (coming soon!)
4. A bellybutton ring (Don't tell dh! This one perhaps will have to wait til I do some toning, so perhaps Summer 2009)
5. Letting someone else take over as largest in the family for the first time in my life. Right now, though, it's a race! Mom mom, sister and husband are all Medifasters, and they've got rather impressive jumps on me since I was the only one over 300. OH, Wait! not true! DH was over 300, but he's also 6'1".
6. Sitting in student desks I teach 6th graders at a middle school. We've got those all-in-one desks. Rather embarrassing, I almost got stuck in one last year during a department meeting -- haven't attempted it since.
7. I can't WAIT to see if how many people don't recognize me at my next high school reunion!
8. I want new portraits of the hubby and me so my mother-in-law can hang something a little more flattering on the wall.
9. JEANS!!!
10. Like others who've previously posted, to have people not believe that I was EVER over 300 lbs!!!

WOW! This is a very motivating series of posts :lol:

Here are mine in no order or priority :lol:

1. To be able to honestly say I feel healthy to my offspring so they stop worrying about me.

2. To be fabulous when I turn 50.

3. To once again accept assignments anywhere in the world without worrying about fitting into an airline seat and flying for hours to reach my destination.

4. To drive my mustang with the top down and not feel like people are looking at me because I am so fat.

5. To be confidant that I will fit when I am seated in a booth.

6. To go to the beach again.

7. To go through turnstyles without turning sideways.

8. To get my hugs from my offspring with their arms all the way around me.

9. To take a walk and not worry about getting exhausted with no place to sit down and catch my breath.

Thanks everyone for the uplifting posts :lol:

Ok, I guess its time to quit procastinating and post already!!! Ok, here's my top ten reasons........

1) To be in the best shape of my life by my 34th birthday this September.
2) To feel comfortable enough to wear a bathing suit...I mean I live in Hawaii for crying out loud!!!
3) To feel as comfortable in my birthday suit as my hubby obviously feels in his!!!
4) To be an inspiration to my friends, family, especially my own children, that they can acheive their goals.
5) To not feel like a beached whale at the annual Marine Corps Ball in my formal gown!
6) This one is already happening(yay!!) To have people think that my 15 yr old daughter is my sister instead of my daughter, and I have to explain.
7) When I go home to Missouri for Christmas, not worry what everyone is thinking of me.
8) Not wishing I was pregnant, just so i would have an excuse to wear maternity clothes.
9) Having enough energy to do things
10) Having self-confidence

7. i want to not fear turnstiles

8. i want to inspire others

9. i want to reinvent myself as someone who has control of their food-- not the other way around

another late reply. but as a new maintainer here's some things that excite me:

1. being able to lift myself up on the counter to reach high shelves or just sit on the island in my kitchen.

2. being able to go down the slide at the playground without being worried that i'm too heavy.

3. fitting on the swing in the playground

4. running without getting out of breath

5. being able to squat down and get stuff out of the back of the bottom cabinets in the kitchen without feeling horribly exhausted and get back up without holding on to the kitchen counter.

6. going into the store and realizing that a size 4 is too big! :shock:

7. buying a tankini and not feeling embarrased to actually wear it to the pool.

8. not feeling ashamed to wear a sleeveless shirt that shows my arms -- they aren't gross anymore!

9. having people who didn't know me before describe me as sooooo skinny. still is a shock to me.

10. looking down and being able to see clearly to my toes.

11. being excited about summer because i won't have to dress in winter clothes to hide my fat! i'll be wearing shorts and halter tops, etc!!!

The list could go on and on :dance: ...

My one major goal is getting rid of a bad habit I acquired when I gained all my weight....

* I want to go out in public and never tug or pull on any piece of clothing because it is too close to my body and might show my fat!!!
It's been swell but the swelling's gone down...

Okay so I came a little late to this thread but here goes...

10. To get up in the morning and not cringe when I look in the mirror.
9. To know that when my boys get older and bolder Dad can keep up with all the things they want to try.
8. To be able to take martial arts with my son and not worry about fitting into the "gui"
7. To be in shape to go out to Philmont Scout ranch with my son in 2 years. (I know a long way off, figure 1 year to lose the weight and 1 year to get in shape)
6. To go skydiving again! (did it for my 30th b-day...wanted to do it for my 40th but was too big)
5. To set a good example for my boys and not have to be the fat dad.
4. To go to a beach on vacation and not think that everyone on the beach is looking at me.
3. To be able to take my shirt off when I cut the grass and not elicit any stares or laughter.
2. To be able to shop at any store I feel like and know they have "my size"!

And my number one reason....

1. To look good in my garter belt and stockings from Frederick's of Hollywood....ooooh....wait....strike that....wrong forum :oops:

I'm looking forward to many, many things but inorder to keep it simple, I have only one stated goal. It's hanging off the hook on my bathroom door and I look at it daily. The size 2, hip hugging, boot leg pants I wore when I used to go two stepping with my gorgeous husband and the matching tiny, tiny white tank top. Giddeee-Up!!
