    I was not prepared for the attention from the opposite sex.

    I’m married so it doesn’t really matter to me anyways, but I have gotten hit on a few times (once it was right in front of my husband while he was standing next to me). It’s ……. Odd.

    i guess in the back of my mind I have this undercurrent of thought with “this guy would not have given me the time of day if I looked like the old me”. It makes their interest a little cringe inducing for me. I might have issues with a phobia of attention directed at me. (I’m a teacher and I’m okay with attention but when it comes from children or colleagues in a professional setting…..It’s definitely uncomfortable otherwise)

    im six two…. I started off at 330 pounds at my heaviest and I am now down to 187. I’m still losing (I’m only 9 months post op) and I have readjusted my goal down lower. At first it was 195, but I’ve surpassed that so I guess I am going lower.

    Congratulations on the weight loss!! That is so amazing. I bet it feels amazing.

    I could totally see where your coming from. The thought of someone not liking me now but liking me then makes me feel yucky. Yes I physical will change but I’m still me. I’ve heard so many times your so petty but…..

    I live in Southern California where a big girl just doesn’t fit the scenery. It’s sad but the truth.

  2. Hi I’m 34 and looking forward to having the sleeve next year. I’m really hoping this surgery will boost my confidence and help me get back into the flow of dating. I’m so tired of being used, closet girlfriend or finding out I’m a side chick. Oh that’s hard to even write. It hurts and has caused me to kinda shut down on the dating. I’ve always been very out going, confident and enjoyed dating and I can’t wait to be there again.
    I’d love to hear some uplifting stories of dating success after survey.
