I'll be repetitive here, but it's cathartic to write them down.

1. Buy clothes in the "regular" store or "regular" department and not the Big and Tall.
2. Like s-piper, comfortable in an airline seat. That's exactly what I do!
3. Related to #2, I'd like to feel comfortable flying in the commuter jets. I fly Southwest all of the time now, because they are all 737s. It would be cheaper and more convenient at times to jump on a Delta, or American flight, and most of them that fly from both Lincoln and Omaha are the commuter jets.
4. Run an entire 5k without stopping to walk.
5. Get off my BP meds.
6. Get off my CPAP!

My goals right now are:

Be able to swim freestyle a mile straight. I'm on the 2nd week of the Zero to One Mile program. Week 2 is 900 yards and I am blown away that I can do it easily.

Train for an August sprint triathlon down the shore. I am good now on the running and the swimming but biking intimidates me, so I have to get on that...

Do you really worry about that?

The only things I worry about fitting into are airplane seats and rollercoasters. It never occurred to me to worry about concerts and particularly not movie theaters. In my experience the seats in movie theaters are huge, and the arms can be put up. I do always sit on the end of an aisle, though. Partially my anxiety issues, I feel better if I can make a quick "get away" if I should have an anxiety attack, and partially because I feel self-conscious squeezing by people at my size.

Yeah. It particularly chafes when the person in the seat next to me, regardless of size, doesn't have any problem with elbowing me in the ribs or manspreading into my leg room. Hey, I'm tall for a woman, I get that it's tough flying with long legs, but don't glare at me because your knee touched mine when I've already voluntarily crammed myself into an imaginary tiny space to avoid taking up more than my fair share!

Yes S-Piper. I really do have to worry about that. I haven't even tried to fit into a roller coaster seat in years. And school auditoriums are not huge, and at least our movie theater does not have arms that can be put up, and some of them are not comfortable. A SIGNIFICANT portion of my extra weight is all in my butt and upper thighs, which makes seating very uncomfortable. So yep, definitely one of my non-scale goals - to be like most other people and not have to worry about the seat sizes anywhere.

Ah yes, school auditoriums. I haven't been in one of those in a while, but I can relate when it comes to university class rooms with the desk/chair combinations. I hate how they squash my stomach. Same with airplane seats. The seat I can fit into, but when I put the tray table down it doesn't go all the way because my stomach is in the way and it makes me feel really self-conscious. And, yeah, the movie theater thing...to be fair, I am used to living in big cities, so most of the movie theaters I frequent are big multiplexes. I have noticed at some of the arts theaters, though, that the seats are smaller.

I'm sorry you have to go through that.

I can relate to the amusement park thing. I haven't been brave enough to even attempt to get onto a rollercoaster in years either.

Man, do i hate those desk/chair combos. But I was taking classes while I was pregnant, and was sitting in one of those the night before I went into labor. But that was awful. I haven't been on an airplane since 1994 and I think seats have gotten smaller since then, but as a rule I don't have an issue with seats for anything.

I've even gone on roller coasters with my grandson and had no problems fitting, but found I no longer really enjoy roller coasters.

I would have to say.. I'd like to stay medication free, for the rest of my life.
I want to die as naturally as I came into the world.

Those are also great ones, and I agree! I would like to live as naturally as I possibly can. For one thing, I've got a nice kitchen garden every summer (Norway unfortunately doesn't lend itself to all-year outdoor gardens...)!

Long-term I would like the same as I want for my patients (on surgical rotation atm), meaning optimal health. It isn't always amazing health, because many of them have long-term health problems, but, OPTIMAL. As in, the best health achieveable.

To be able to buy a hanging tree stand with a max weight of 300 and just use it instead of buying the fat boy "2 man stand" with a max weight of 500. I also want to be able to fit into a safety harness while on that tree stand, instead of having to rig up a special one with a rope.
