Those are good goals.

According to my kids I have no butt - I'm an apple which I hate. Apparently having a flat ass is not a good thing, some celebs pay lots of money to get theirs made bigger

Walking up a flight of stairs without gasping for breath.

Enjoying what use to be my hour regular walk with lots of hills

After having a soak in the bath, getting out of my bath easily without having to contort myself

Not having to buy tops that are a size too big so as to fit my breasts

Being energetic in general

Riding a bike again. (I've done it at nearly my current weight, but it's hard. Also, the bike store employees look disbelieving. Also, above about 250 pounds your options for bikes really taper down to nothing. Below 220, even a folding bike is fine.)

Going kayaking.

Loooooooooooooooong walks. And hikes.

I enjoy bushwalking, so much nicer than walking aimlessly round suburbia. We went on holiday to Vietnam earlier this year and spent a couple of days trekking in Sapa, it was amazing. The scenery is spectacular

Some of the things I’m looking forward to....

Taking a plane ride and not needing a seatbelt extender....

Being able to ride a horse again (haven’t been able to in 20+ years)....

Keeping up with my husband when we walk.....

Buying clothes in a regular store. (I currently only buy online because I never want to go clothes shopping)....

And I think #1 - not having to look at the restaurant pictures before I select which all-inclusive resort to go to on vacation - to make sure they don’t have arms on the chairs! (Yes - I had this problem the first time I went on vacation with my husband. SO embarrassing!!)

And now I can't get the image of Daisy Duck out of my head. 🤣

My boobs sticking out further than my belly !

I've got the same problem right now. Of course the majority of the 50 lbs I lost had to come off from my breasts instead of my waist. 😡. I suppose I can rely on push up bras and inserts until it evens out again. I miss my curves 😭.

I also have a tiny shower , I’ve given up trying to shave my legs in there. Not only because it’s difficult to bend over but I also can’t see the hairs without my glasses on! It’s much easier to shave before I get in the shower

Seeing my vagina so when I'm shaving I don't shave my nails. I've done that so many times. It's not so bad when I have acrylics on but man does it hurt when I don't have them done.
