I've always been a t-shirt person. I've never worn really fashionable clothes because I hate the way everyone looks on me. I told myself though, after I revise to the sleeve (currently I have the band which I'm having problems with) when I start having to buy new clothes I WILL NOT buy t-shirts. I'm going to go to Old Navy and buy fashionable clothes. Nothing to crazy, but nice clothes. That is what I'm going to look forward to.

I agree with all of the above, especially not sweating. I noticed how gross I feel with all of the excess insulation. Less pain in my joints and just shopping and feeling more confident!

Okay, but not to sound dumb, but what is ONEderland that ppl keep referencing? Is it weight in the 100's? Did I just answer my own question?

Walking at the beach without huffing and puffing and not sweating so much!

Hiking, kayaking and so much more. 10 days out and it's going to be an epic summer

Most look forward to being active with my 5 year old!
