All the replies have really given me more inspiration. After reading I know there are some things I do now just because of my weight and I'm looking forward to not having to do it. Especially airplane seats. That was really embarrassing having my thighs touch the people next to me.

I stopped snoring, which my family are very happy about. Saw my collarbones the other day, too!

I never became "attractive". I thought I would. I've still never been flirted with, hit on, or had a drink bought for me the way all my other friends who've lost weight said they had once they lost weight.

I always thought being slimmer would mean I was automatically going to be good-looking. it was a pretty big eye-opener when that didn't happen.

so i got all depressed about it and gained the weight back

.You are gorgeous!!! Its their loss if they dont flirt with you, hit on you or buy you drinks..you are a better person than that.. I snooped at your pics and you truly have amazing features... dont give up on your journey xx

I have been monitoring the Forum for months, waiting until I had lost enough weight to earn the right to join in. I am down 15 of my declared 55 pounds and found this thread as irresistible for comments.

To conclude from what I have read over the past hour or so from My Fitness Pals I can look forward to: smaller shoes with colder feet, a larger wiener and hotter sex, easier pregnancy and a greater difficulty if I am shaving my arm pits.

Being elderly, I feel that I am not up to speed on a couple of things I picked up in this thread like what does "bump" mean and how do I get my "V" back.

Seriously, I can not believe what an inspirational tool MFP is! We are all so fortunate to be participants (and friends). Thanks to all for getting/keeping me motivated on my fitness plan.

if you get preggers from losing weight then i think i am going to quite MFP, i dont need that in my life now :)

and you shouldnt feel you have to wait for X amount of lbs to come off to participate or that what you have to say will be null and void cause youre a noobie. from what i have seen and how i reply, whether you lost 100 lbs or 2 lbs, been on here 1 day or 2 years you will be met with sarcasm , whinery, support and disdain.

i tend mostly to the sarcastic side of things with support thrown in from time to time

I start working with a trainer tomorrow and I can't wait to see all of these changes, good and bad, and more!!

Lots of perks! The biggest ones are in the "medical/health" category...which was my #1 goal. No more leg/hip pains when I go to bed, able to get some new clothes that are NOT in the big woman section, people complimenting me on how good I look, walking and climbing stairs more easily. I think the one (besides health) that I enjoy the most is being able to cross my legs easily again!

I'm getting my personality back. I hadn't quite noticed how withdrawn I'd become- but then the other day at work I was crackin' wise with the boys, and the comment was made several times that they didn't realize how funny I was. It dawned on me how much a little extra weight had turned me into an introvert. I didn't want people looking at me, and if you talk to people, well they tend to look at you during the course of a conversation. Temporarily blinding my co-workers with pepper spray to ask if I could borrow their stapler just never struck me as a good idea...


Cool - Ha Ha Ha!

"bump" is a way of marking your spot so you can pull up the thread again under My Topics. That way if you want to read it again or see additional responses where you left off you won't have to search for the thread again.

It also 'bumps' the topic to the top of the message board list :)

I've never been a normal weight. Not since maybe 8 years old. I'm 100% committed now and I can't wait for some of these!

This is the best thread ever.

I am just getting started, but I am already feeling more energetic and really benefiting from the combination of eating better foods, exercising regularly, and only drinking alcohol occasionally.

Continued success to all.

My feet got smaller! Went from a 9/9.5 to an 8.


Oh I hope this happens to me. After having 2 kids my feet grew a full size. It's hard to find cute shoes when your a size 10.

Bump this for future reference.

After my modest loss of 11 pounds, I'm surprised by how angular my face is. I keep thinking "geez, has my chin always been that big?"

Not to point out how poor I am....but my mattress needs to be shot and buried. You can feel the springs poking through and It didn't bother me when I had more fat on me. Now that I'm skinnier the springs actually hurt, especially where my ribs and hip bones are. Ouchies I have to lay just right now to fall asleep comfortably.

I Don't have to go to the plus size section anymore

My sexy hooker boots are too big now, are no longer skin tight instead they are bunchy and very unsexy

I've learn how to use a leather punch on my belts

I have tons of energy now and my health problems have improved greatly!

I am able to be more bedroom activities with my husband.
