I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread about things we can do now that we've lost weight. Or for those starting out the things they look forward to being able to do. It doesn't have to be something crazy like a marathon, just something you looked forward to being able to do.


I'll start...

I can do pull-ups/chin-ups now. Very Happy I've always wanted to be able to do a pull-up because it's one of the hardest exercises you can do. I was never able to do pullups when I weighed more because it was just too much weight for me to raise above the bar.

I can wear shorts and tank tops this summer without being embarassed at the jiggle. After lots of yoga I can do a few pushups which I have never been able to do in the past, even when I was very young and skinny. No upper body strength. That is a huge deal for me!

I actually feel good about my yoga... the positions don't make me feel like a fat blob anymore.

And I am excited about the chance to try going for a jog this summer with my boyfriend. I have always looked at those girls running down the street with such awe and envy... it could be ME now!!

I can wear a little dress to the cousin's wedding this summer and feel good about it.

And of course, bedroom play is so much more fun now. I don't mind leaving the lights on anymore! Very Happy

Well about 70 pounds ago, I had to take my shoes off and put them on my lap to tie them. Now I can tie them while they're on my feet. I still usually end up putting my foot up on the curb or a higher step, but hey, it is definitely a step in the right direction.
