Being able to wear knits without worrying about the rolls and bumps.

Wearing shorts and not having them ride up between my legs from the friction.

Wearing leggings in public without feeling like I'm a fashion Don't

Fitting into the roller coaster seats without wondering if I'm inadvertently stress testing the restraints.

I'd love to shed my mirror phobia and my fear of my picture being taken. Also, I don't want to shy away from being touched, thinking other people will be disgusted to have to touch me.

Shoe laces not tied in the middle of your shoe. Have you ever notices fat people have their shoe laces tied close to the side of there shoe because it is to hard to get your foot up to tie your shoe. it is true and a common problem. The other problem I have is when flying from visiting a friend the seat belt on a short flight was not big enough. Embarrassed I would not ask for help so I flew without one.

The medical fear one -- I feel that so much. I want to not dread the doctor because fat always seems to equal bad news.

Chub rub. Ugh. Worrying about finding little shorts to wear under my dresses to prevent that grossness!

I want to go to an amusement park and ride ALL OF THE RIDES with my niece and nephew instead of not riding rides because I'm afraid of not fitting in the belts.

*Panicking every time we go to Disneyland while in line if I will be able to buckle in without assistance or get up easily at the end. Without the embarassing huge grunt and exhale sounds while coming up.
*Checking weight restrictions on anything I buy even a simple step stool or lawn furniture.
*Going to events or parties without fear of do they have those weight restricted plastic chairs. (Yes I sat on one at a party and it broke)
*Being able to take my daughter to the water slides and get on too. Weight restrictions again and endless climbing.
*No longer having to figure out how to navigate through a packed restaurant so as no to bump into the chairs with people or plain not fit through.
*Not having fear when being refereed to a doctor because you are not a person with a medical issue. that you were sent there to check into.one look and they have your diagnosis you need to loose weight case closed. This is the most disturbing of all. Asking for help of medical professionals and many will decide as soon as they look at you.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, as far as I know people might consider this an exaggeration.

Though, my problem is looking decent while standing up, then looking like a ball of puddy as soon as I sit down.

as others have said, ditching the uniform... finding one flattering dress and buying several of them in every boring old color they offer in plus sizes. i am so tired of wearing black all the time.

the huge one i'm dealing with right now is being able to walk into a store and buy a bra. i'm not even talking like, cute bras, i'm just talking about a bra that fits. i don't think i've ever even owned one. i have currently switched to genie bras, but when i went to big 5 the other day to look for a sports bra, the biggest one they had in stock didn't even come close to fitting me.

i want a bra that fits my ribcage but doesn't leave me with giant bumps spilling out the top.

people pay money for these things?

In addition to being glad to get rid of the problems others have listed below, I cannot wait to get rid of the Charlie Brown cloud that follows me everywhere.....no matter how cute I feel or think I look all it takes is one look in the mirror or at a picture, etc. and it's gone. Depression would be too strong of a word, but being this heavy definitely affects my mood and I'll be glad to get rid of it.

I can relate to almost everything everyone else has said, but I'll add a few very specific to me:

1. no energy
2. having to wear a "uniform" (skirt with big top)
3. pain in knees
4. med for b/p and high cholesterol
5. great difficulty in puttin on support hose

I am keeping focused on the opposite of all the above!

This is a great thread! Thanks!

(I have been away from SP for a long time, but remembered this was my favorite team. So glad to be back among those with common problems and goals!)

~ I'd like to not feel shame when walking into the boutique stores at the mall, when I go to buy a gift for a friend, because the store doesn't sell plus size clothing, and the teenage model clerks give you the evil eye.(Or at least seem to be.)

~I would like to be able to be able to climb steps without huffing.

~ Feel safe on a roller coaster, I never want to suffer the embarrasment again of having to get off a ride because the latch wouldn't click. Or feel anxiety from being on a ride when the saftey only clicked once.

~ I am a huge fan of t-shirts, but I can never buy the women's cut band shirts that always seem to have the best patterns, but never come in my size. I would like be able to support my favorite band without looking like a boxy mess.
