what kinds of changes have you noticed since you lost weight?

i was just wondering out of curiosity what kinds of changes people have notice since theyve lost weight?

can you see your feet now without bending over?
run a flight of stairs without catching your breath?
notice other people doing double takes now and checking you out?
less food cravings?

etc, etc, etc

I have noticed that men are looking at me more now. They didnt used to look at me much and now they are doing doubletakes. I am kinda liking it. I can't wait actually to see how they will react when I reach my goal. :)

Ugh, that kind of attention is actually making me ponder the advantages of being fat. Instead, I just wear baggy clothes.

I like that my joints don't hurt and my parents now look at me with pride rather than pain.

Who wouldn't want members of the opposite sex looking at them and thinking they look hot? (unless you are homosexual, and then you still want to look hot to those you are attracted to right?) Isn't that a big part of why you want to be thinner along with the health benefits? Baggy clothes hides all the hard work and dedication it takes to get there. Damn right I am gonna show it off in a classy, confident way. I worked for it. And yeah, I am glad to see men looking my direction for a change. It's nice! :)

Guys look, leer, comment ... whoopdeedoo, so twice as many men want to sleep with me now that I'm not fat. Maybe if they were more discriminating about who they sleep with, it would be a compliment.

9:57 you have a really bad attitude. Poor attitudes turn men off whether you are fat or skinny and they can see it in the walk, talk, and under baggy clothes. Put some pride into yourself and your appearance. You never know what else might improve...

No offense, but weight loss doesnt sound like your only need at the moment.

I think a lot of us can attest to the fact that our appearance, vain as it may be is a big motivator for weight loss success. Many people do want to look nice because it gives them extra confidence when they go out into the world. I know it does for me.

10:13, I wish all it took to turn a man off was a bad attitude, walk and talk. That just presents a challenge, and they all like the semblance of a challenge.

The only place I wear anything remotely revealing (tank top, to be specific) is the gym, because I live in a predominantly gay neighborhood so I know I'm safe.

I'm healthy and in great shape...just not into the superficial stuff.

Too add to the original topic:
I like fitting comfortably into cattle class on an airplane.
And I really don't miss knocking things off store shelves with my hips.

Every since I started working out and losing weight I've noticed a short! dent running down my stomach. The sort of athletic look that was hidden under the layers of fat. I still have a ways to go but it's definitely nice to look as healthy as I feel!

So many changes....

- shapely legs
- sleek arms
- sleeping better
- short periods and less cramping
- better attitude
- improved mood

And yes, the additional attention from the opposite sex is nice. I think of it as someone else noticing my hard work. Whether or not they are thinking about if they want to sleep with me, is not my problem. It's theirs...let them go take a cold shower! LOL

I love that when I go to the doctor's office, the nurses invariably volunteer that they can tell I work out because my blood pressure and heart rate are so low. I never thought that would make me happy because I was focused more on appearances, but what a perk to have medical professionals recognize and congratulate my hard work!
