Default OK so I totally got hit on in a bar......

...and not by someone unattractive, by a normal guy! And over my GORGEOUS friend! We went out to see a band on Saturday, and we were heading out to the deck for a minute because it was hot in the bar, and he was standing by the door. When we were on our way back in he said "Hey, are you married?" and I held up my hand to flash my ring....my friend said that she WASN'T, but he looked back at me and said "Damn, you're a cutie!"

What an ego boost, and a motivator! LOL! I can't believe it after the horrific way I looked this past summer that at this point someone would find me attractive, but apparently my efforts are showing and paying off!!! WOO HOO!!!!

I attached a pic of me and my friend from this past Sunday---you can compare it to my "before" pics from last June........UGH!!! (I'm behind her, she is the redhead!)

I checked out your photo. Don't take this wrong and don't tell your friend, but you are much cuter than she is. Glad my dh can't see you. Wishing you losses.

Thanks everyone. I don't know why it is so hard to take a compliment but I am trying to accept that everyone isn't lying! What is it with us women? We are so critical of ourselves. I guess I still see those summer pictures where I looked terrible, and my mind has to catch up with the truth that I have lost a pretty decent amount of weight, and continue to move in the right direction!!!!

I love this site!!! Don't know what I would do without y'all!!!

Feels amazing doesnt it?!?! When I lost about 30lbs I noticed guys looked at me more for some reason...I guess because after losing 30lbs I carried myself different and with more confidence...that shows!! Keep up the good work!!

lol i dont know if ill ever get to a place where i can accept compliments.
but you should embrace it. you are SUCH a pretty lady.
one of my customers the other day told me that i am getting to be nothing but skin and bones... i just laughed and said "bless your lying heart".... but it did make me wonder if when i KNOW my body has changed if i will still see myself as the fat girl since ive never been anything else..
i read your response in my success story you are so so sweet! thank you so much .

I agree with joesfolks, you're much cuter and hotter than your friend. Way to go!

Damn...you ARE a cutie.
A beauty actually.

It does feel good to be noticed (especially when it's by someone normal)
