I have a few. Some pure vanity, some deeper than that.

- Fit back into an outfit from college when I was 155 lbs. Yeah, I'm realistic. I know it may not happen, but I'd love it if it did!

- Fly comfortably.
I can fit into the seats, and I can buckle the seatbelt without an extender...but only just barely! What's really uncomfortable for me is that, to avoid being that person who everyone complains about (even my own aunt!), who is "The fatty who is spilling over into the seat I paid for!" I basically spend the entire flight hugging my own torso as tightly as possible. If my arms even touch the arm rests I get paranoid that I'm taking up more than my fair share of room. After a few hours it leads to some wicked arm and back cramps, and sleeping that way is impossible. I'd like to be able to actually relax on a flight!

- Feel comfortable with my own body. This was an issue for me even when I was smaller, so it's mostly a mental thing. It's a big part of why I gained so much weight, though, so I know it'll be important for future success!

To fit into the size 14 clothes I wore before kids. They're the smallest clothes in my closet and I especially want to be able to wear the ones with the price tags still attached. I want to either wear them out and move down to the next size...which will mean a whole new wardrobe because I don't own any 12's.😁👍

Also, fly and travel more comfortably.

1) to not have to worry about 'seat size' when attending a movie, concert or other event.
2) to not audibly wheeze when walking with others, or climbing stairs.
3) to shop in the regular sizes, not plus sizes.
4) to like how I look and the shape I am in.

My aunt could do this with ease even well into her late 80's. It was so easy for her she didn't even think about it, but would just pop up from the floor this way after playing with her great-grandchildren. And me with my bad knee? Probably never.

Though of course my aunt (my mom's big sister) never really had a weight issue either. Though I do recall that in her early 70's, on her 50th wedding anniversary, about all the weight she had put on over the years. She was 5'4", and as she said sadly about it "on my wedding day I weighed 99 pounds, and today I weigh 124. In 50 years I have put on *25 pounds*!"

My major NSV would be able to wear "regular" clothes and not "plus". Most of my shirts are men's shirts though as I tend to hate all shirts on offer in the plus-sized department. Quite apart from the smaller size I would love to have more options if clothes shopping.

Even at normal weight for my height when I was in high school, I still wore plus sizes and had to shop at special stores. I'm just not built the right way. My mom weighs 150 at 5'2" and wears plus sizes right now. It's all genetic. It does make it hard to motivate to lose a lot more weight, for sure. I would love to shop in normal stores but it's never going to happen. When I was 180 I was miles away from clothes that didn't contain a "w".

"now that's what I'm talkin' about" Great goal Grandma!! This really brightened my mood. A goal for two. Not a goal, like mine, for one. Much more betterer.

Thank You!

  • Be that 50+ year old dude who can do a chin-up
  • Dust off the old windsurfer and catch a breeze on the Patomic
  • Meet my great grandchildren
  • I'm already off all meds and I want to stay pharmaceutical free (if at all possible)
  • Fix up my neglected house -- needs some siding, windows fixed, and some new paint
  • See Europe again.
  • Live to see the day when worldwide diabetes and obesity rates are on the decline.
