    Hey,

    Always being a pudgy kid growing up there have been many things I always wanted to do. Here is a list of a few:

    1. Tight shirts
    2. Tight pants
    3. Walk around a beach with a shirt off not feeling self concious
    4. Ride a motorcycle and not look like an elephant on a bicycle
    5. Flex.. and actually have muscles to show off!
    6. Not be called fat ever again
    7. Be called skinny
    8. Be able to show my little cousin that with a little work and a lot of determination that you can achive anything
    9. Show my dad that its my eating habits and my sedintary lifestyle that made me fat.. not my genes or my mother's wonderful cooking
    10. Prove to my dad that when I want something bad enough I will get it.. err do I have daddy issues!? lol anyways back to the fun stuff
    11. Enter a hardbody competition
    12. Skydive/bungee jump/etc (i was always too scared I was too fat to do these things)
    13. Get back in martial arts and get my black belt
    14. Be happy with myself
    15. Live a long and happy life that wouldn't be possible with my old unhealthy lifestyle (too fat.. smoker.. and I drank too much)

    how about you?

    Wear tight shirts without being embarrassed (damn chest fat).
    Talk about my weight loss (I prefer to keep it extremely secret until I've finished it)

    1) Have a ton of energy and never take it for granted like some other people do.

    2) Buy new clothes and not feel like I'm settling for the lesser of two very ugly choices.

    3) More specifically, look damn hot in a bikini :D

    4) Be able to run (okay, and walk, too) without having my ass do jumping jacks behind me (because they don't make bras for one's ass).

    5) Maybe finally get the tattoos I've been contemplating, but which I know would seem out of place on a girl with only a 'pretty face' (as I've been called).

    Main thing for me is to be able to be seen without a shirt on and not make people dry reach.

    Also would love to get more good comments from my girlfriend, she has said a couple like 'your ribs are starting to show', or 'your arms look good now'...but more will be better :)

    EDIT: Almost forgot, want to show a few people around me that losing weight is possible and not that hard if you really want it :tu:

    I am in great shape now, and I do whatever I want to. It's awesome :tu:

    ...I'm not entirely sure, but I guess it's a good sign when even guys ask me to flex my arms :whistle:

    * Wear a tank top it the oppressive Texas heat
    * Shop at any clothing store I want
    * Go Swimming, to the Creek, to the Lake or to Schlitterbahn without worrying about being in a bathing suit all day.
    * Sit in a chair cross-legged or sit in a movie theater chair with my feet up on my seat.
    * Be able to cross my legs without kickig the person next to me
    * Wear short skirts...or any skirt for that matter without the thigh chafing that usually happens.
    * Go on a six mile hike without dread.

    I see a few repeats for myself...

    -Wear tight fitting clothing
    -Feel good about it when people comment about how much weight I lost (I don't feel comfortable yet when people say it because I still have a lot more to lose)
    -Look good when I go swimming (I still go now, but I don't feel good about it)
    -Be a better hockey player and skater (getting there, it gets soo much easier the more fat I drop)
    -Impress the ladies that can't have me anyway because I'm taken (it'll feel much better this way, I think, then it would have if they could have had me - isn't desirability directly proportional with availability?)
    -Have "relaltions" without a big blubbery stomach getting in the way constantly

    There are others that I have thought about, but I won't be sure until I get to my target weight, such as possibly running a marathon - not to win, just to finish not last and be able to say I did it.

    When you lean out and gain muscle there is just a surge of confidence that takes over your body and eventually everything you do will have the confidence to it.

    7. Be called skinny


    Ugh...I, too, used to have about 20 lbs extra on me, and now it's all gone.


    And now that I'm trying to bulk up, I do NOT want to be called skinny :mad:

    Before I lost the weight, yes, I did. but not now.

    Stand up tall and not worry about the damn nipples making it look like I got tits! When it's cold and they flatten out, my upper body looks solid. Such a pain in the arse....

    Personally, this is very shallow of me, but I really want to *REJECT* (harshly, I might add) an attractive woman making an advance.

    This may be hollow/rude/shallow etc, but it is important to me for some reason. (Kind of a "I'm my own person now, I know I'm hot, and YOU aren't good enough for me"...I have two of those three but adding the 'I'm hot' factor holds appeal for me).

    Hopefully I make her cry.

    Yes, I'm a terrible person.
    (I just want to be on the other side of a cruel rejection, once in my life)
