I would approach this by making a list of all the odd numbers, I would do that by seeing if dividing it by an even number produces a float or not, if it doesn't produce a float then the number is even, right?

Code:
```oddList = []
oddList2=[]
for i in range(1000):
no1 = float(i)/2
no2 = int(i/2)
if not no1==no2: oddList.append(i)
for i in range(len(oddList)):
oddList2.append(oddList[i])
oddList2.append(oddList[-i-1])```
That should do the trick. Just print oddList2 for the results. It will output the following (though I abbreviated this one with ........ obviously):

[1, 999, 3, 997, 5, 995, 7, 993, 9, 991, 11, 989, 13, 987, 15, 985, 17, 983, 19, 981, 21, 979, 23, 977, 25, 975, 27, 973, 29, 971, ........... 19, 983, 17, 985, 15, 987, 13, 989, 11, 991, 9, 993, 7, 995, 5, 997, 3, 999, 1]
