    RH..........I started my journey in September at 347 lbs. I never thought I would be where I am today (273). I too hated all those things you mentioned and still do, although I am seeing some changes. Keep your positive attitude and dont give up. Just like babies, the time goes by so fast. It seens like yesterday that I was that big..... Sorry for cutting in on you thread Benson!

    Default Argh...

    For me, it is the way other people look at me or at least how I think they look at me. It is the fact that I can't even buy clothes in a store anymore, I have to go online and in catalogs. It is the insecurity that I feel in public, around family and friends, and even with my husband. It is how hard everything seems to be... going up the stairs, lifting heavier things, bathing the dogs, going for a walk, time with my hubby... it all takes it out of me. (It is getting better though... I finally hit the 34 lb mark.) It is my inability to sit in a booth at a restaurant or get my massive hips into a seat in a stadium, movie theater, or a lot of other chairs with arms. It is worrying about my health. It is worrying about choosing to have kids and wondering if I will make it through the pregnancy or being able to keep up with the kids when I have them. It is being tired of wishing that I had the ability to do all that I want to do with my life. And it is not having the self confidence to be an overall happier person.

    For me it is a lot of things, but these are not only the things that I hate most about being overweight. These are also the reasons that I have chosen to do this and they are the reasons that, this time, I am determined to make it. Quitting is not an option for me because I don't want to do this again and I don't want to fail again. When I stop pursuing the weight loss, all these things that I hate will be gone because I will have met my goal and I won't let myself go back again.
    Keep on Keepin' on!

    I too hate the "tig ol' bitties". I found some DDD 3 months ago that seemed like they fit... until I tried to wear one for a whole day and kept falling out the top. I went back to lane bryant and cringed, but I asked for a bra sizing.... 40G!! You heard me, a G!! Forget cute bras, I can't even buy mine in the store. The lady had one that was a return and let me try it out. It fit. If I can maintain a healthy weight for 3 months, I'm going to get a reduction in the Spring. I'm sick of these things.
    210lbs-170lbs 10/01/08 - 3mo of phen & 3mo of just D&E

    I dislike more than the weight itself, is the negativity that comes along with it. People seem to think you are fat and lazy, unmotivated, etc...

    I hate lots of things about being overweight. The main thing I hate is that I can't buy the clothes I want to wear. Just like Benson said, the ones you see in catalogs and magazines that only skinny chicks can wear!

    I miss the cute clothes. Most of all, I hate the way people look at you when you're fat. Being overweight doesn't make you less of a person but a lot of people treat you that way. In return you start feeling like less of a person. People act different toward skinny people for some reason. I think a lot of us want to lose weight to fit back into the stigma that has been created in society. I know a huge part of losing weight for me is that I want to be able to walk into a room again and feel like people are welcoming me, not judging me and thinking of me as a pig.

    shoes and clothes Even though I can fit in the majority of stuff now... there are still some items that are just right there in front of me and so outa reach at the same time!

    The other thing..... the roll that pops up when i wear dress pants for work. Even though, I cant complain ...cause when i stand up i cant grab any upper tummy fat.... only that lil pregnancy pouch.... but i cant wait for the day that the lil roll from dress pants finally leaves me!!!

    I think I hate the most how it affects intimacy with my BF. When he spoons me while watching tv or laying in bed he always has to keep his hand on my hip, because he knows I hate how squishy my tummy is and it's not easy for him to wrap his arm around it and he doesn't want to embarrass me, but still just the fact that he has to leave his arm on my hip reminds me that I want this tummy GONE!

    There are many things for me too... I hate to look at myself in the mirror. I haven't been big my whole life, so I think that makes it harder...knowing how it feels to be smaller, healthier, in shape can make it really difficult some times...
    Shopping is diffinately a biggie too...I avoid that as much as I can too. I used to be able to go in a store and be out in 15 mins with 15 different things...Now it's takes me an hour just to fine one pair of jeans that fit right.
    I hate wearing big clothes, but that's all I wear...it makes me feel better...and gives me a sence of security that people aren't looking and pointing at me....OMG she's fat.
    I hate been bigger than my hubby, and I hate it when he says he's fat....omg, what must he think of me?

    Ahhh...this is making me depressed, I'm going to stop now...

    I hate not being able to fit any clothes and how the cute stuff is 10 sizes TOO SMALL! Everything cute on the clearance rack in Macy's, J.C. Penny, Carsons etc is a size 7/8. I can't stand how pants feel around my waist if I found a way to squeeze into them. AND I REALLY HATE when the "ol' faithfuls" (that's what my friends and I call that one pair of pants in your closet that no matter how big you get they will always fit) become tight; then you really know you are in trouble!

    The lack of confidence, keeping me from doing certain things i love to do. (like swimming in public pools) We used to live in a house with our own pool, so it didn't matter to me, but now we don't, and i'm too self conscious to even wear a bathing suit in front of anyone anymore. (even family) The only times i get to swim are when i go camping, and i swim in the lake..with basket ball shorts on or something.

    And i haaate that there are so many clothes that i love, but there's no way i could ever get them. The feeling you get when you see a lot of cute shirts that might fit you, and then once you try them on, none did... s ucks Shopping is a pain for me, especially since i'm younger, so it's hard to find clothes to fit my personality and age. Oh yeah, and it stops me from wearing shorts or tank tops.

    And lastly, no attention from boys. The ones now a days in school are so much more picky about girls looks. It's pretty crappy when you're sitting with a friend who's skinny, and all the guys are talking to them. It's not even that i'd want to date those certain guys, but they don't need to pretend like you're not there and don't matter, just because they wouldn't want to get in your pants. And the only ones who aren't picky..are ones i don't like. They're not good enough for me. (they're rednecks, or just something else dumb like that)

    Now that you mention it, I feel that way too. Sometimes I feel good, and then a see a picture and then my confidence goes way down too.

    I don't think you can say pissed off either.
