I don’t miss hiding in the back in pictures. I don’t miss crying in dressing rooms. I don’t miss standing next to my tiny sisters and crying when I get home bc we had to take a family picture and stand side by side. I still cry when I see those pictures. I do miss being able to lose 5 lbs in a day 😂. Now 5lbs is super hard work to take off lol.

I don't look at 5 pounds any more. I look at half a pound at a time !!! And I Celebrate every half a pound as a major victory - at 10 years out, I still have to remind myself where I STARTED 10 years ago. At 320 pounds. Now I am at 177. And each pound is a VICTORY !

Celebrate each victory !!!!

I won't miss getting out of breathe when I walk up or down the stairs.

I won't miss my legs rubbing together causing a rash.

I won't miss feeling uncomfortable on theme park rides.

I won't miss standing up to wipe my bottom after using the bathroom (tmi).

I won't miss feeling uncomfortable sitting in a booth.

I won't miss sweaty under-boobs!

I won’t miss-

that fear in people’s eyes when I board a plane, or the fear I have that someone as big as me will sit next to me.

going to sporting events and have to wedge into the narrow seat and be uncomfortable the hole time

not being to find anything in my size that looks good.

TMI- the fat roll beneath my waist

not being able to keep my pants up without making my belt feel like a tourniquet

Hating going to the beach or a pool where I will need to take my shirt off

being the fattest guy in the room

not being able to go hiking with my son (or if we do, it is much slower than he wants to go)

not being able to jog

using a CPAP

feeling like a loser when I see friends or former classmates I haven’t seen in a few years

not getting the job after they see how fat I am

having boobs bigger than my wife’s

one thing that has improved as I have lost 30 lbs is that I can sleep on my side without my arm going numb.

i can relate to each and every person that has stated all the reasons I won't miss about being fat and I know this is absolutely TMI, but I hated using the bathroom because I can't get to myself to clean myself properly without having to get back in the shower once again.

It's great being able to sit down on the end of a bench - like at a picnic table - and not have the whole bench flip up!

I won’t miss:
1. my feet constantly hurting;
2. wiping my butt abnormally because I was too fat to reach behind me to wipe from front to back - I know, TMI!
3. Breathing heavily for any amount of exertion
4. Straining to buckle my sandals
5. Shopping from the Plus section
6. Having to wear orthopedic shoe inserts or purchasing special ortho shoes.
7. Straining to shave my legs.
8. No energy; taking naps every day I had off.

Men are nicer to me now. Has anyone noticed that?? I also don’t miss wearing clothes that fit poorly. (I’m wearing my daughters hand me downs and they look amazing on me) I don’t miss my knees screaming when I walk!!

Sad to say but isn't it the truth. I've been big and small a few times in my life, and as far as men go, it is so the truth.

Regarding men - Covid has increased my game! When I'm wearing a mask and sunglasses, I must look a lot younger b/c I will catch 20 somethings checking me out. Of course if I took off my mask and sunglasses they would realize I'm their mom's age and run away! LOL!!!!
