    - To wear a bikini and not feel self-conscious
    So, yes, basically, we all want the same thing, but I was wrong to try to express it numerically.

    Leida, I hope someday you can feel happy with your body.

    Sbhikes, exactly. Feeling healthy, happy, and capable is my goal. I was okay with wearing a bikini 20 pounds ago. Yes, being leaner feels nice, but these days my priority is my physical and mental health.

    Thank you. I am half way there - I like how I look dressed, particularly in certain gym get ups. It's the LGN/bathing suit part that I can't nail down for the life of me, and I love going to the pool

    Interesting you only noticed number 1 on my list. In fact, I may never feel un-self-conscious in a bikini and that's okay because all the other things on my list are about 100 times more important.

    Thanks! I'm proud to be the heaviest person from my friend group (that are not fat)

    Also, that's related to how one feels as well as how one looks. Some women feel comfortable in a bikini at 200 pounds, while others won't feel okay with it even at 100 pounds. Body image and self-consciousness is about more than just size or weight.

    I just quoted the first line. The other things, I want too, apart from running a marathon. I have never ever in my life wanted to run a marathon. Even when I was CW and all pumped up about learning to run (OMG, I can run!).

    True. Still, feeling comfortable and having a true conviction that you LGN... there is a difference. I put on my bathing suit and walk into the pool/steam room. My thighs spreading around or the fat rolling over the band ain't gotta stop me from enjoying myself, no more than a swimming cap/goggles making me look like a dork would. I am not gonna go to the pool in a crappy bikini and full make up and with my hair arranged. But I know that I don't look good.
