Im no girl ( ), but I have to admit I initially started to lose weight partly because of a guy I had a thing for at the time. I quickly forgot about them, and I started doing it for myself. Hopefully you will to because it can be a very unhealthy way of thinking. Sorry just coming from experience from a person that has struggled with eating disorders that were triggered by similar things in my past. HTH.

I'm not losing to IMPRESS a guy... I am trying to lose because I had gained almost 40lbs since the last time I saw my boyfriend in October (he lives in GA)... I dont want to feel horrible when he is here (exspecially since it's been SOOO long). I just want to look at least the same as I did when he left, lol.

Even though I know he wouldn't care

That's the wrong path to be going down. It's cheesy, but believe me, you would much rather like to have a guy who loves they way you are right now. Any jerk that is gonna date a girl because she lose a few lbs doesn't even deserve a second look. Not to mention people have their preferences, would you go out and get a nosejob, boobjob, gain forty lbs in order to get a guy to like you? Doubt it. Looks are important but they aren't everything, the relations based on them are generally pretty pethetic and shallow.

well....I'm an 18yo man and I'm engaged so....no need for that! lol....I guess I am kind-of losing for the oposite sex though, maybe if I feel better about my image it would be easier to get along with my fiancee...it feels like its fight after fight...koodos to all you singal people! lol
I workout everyday too though so...it's more than just weight loss to me.

If a guy wasn't interested in me because of my weight, he can feel free to do something to himself that's probably anatomically impossible.

Like me or leave me. If you hit the door, you weren't the right guy for me anyway.





Just some thoughts from an older person.

When I was younger, I used to diet to impress this guy I had a thing for. It was stupid really. Yes, he was only interested in the girls who were ridiculously thin, and I liked him, and I thought he was worth it.

Right! Any guy that is worthy of me will accept me how I am. That guy was a jerk. I was just too smitten to realize it. I have a great guy now who loves me just how I am, and is proud of how I'm losing weight for myself.

If losing weight makes you feel more confident, then go for it. Trust me, being happy with yourself radiates a lot more attractiveness (to the "good" guys) than a couple of pounds of weight loss.

Kris, I've had the same attitude since high school but more along the lines of, "What you see is what you get. If you don't like what you see, get steppin".

On a more serious note, people are attracted to each other for a whole range of reasons, appearance only being one, and not everyone in the world is going to fall in love with you no matter how good you look.
Trust me, the wrapping on the package is a lot less important than what's inside.

I have to agree with Kris and Lisa. I think it has to do with age, wisdom and maturity. As you go thru life I would hope that you reach an age of wisdom where you realize that it really isn't about the "fat". If a man (or whoever) is unable to accept you at that moment as you are--what makes you think that he will be more accepting if you are thin (?) and the more important question--why would you want someone so superficial as to only accept you when you are "thin". Not the kind of person I want to be in a relationship with when the tough gets going.

I love being in my forties--I don't even give that kind of stuff a second thought.

Lose the weight for you and for the right reasons, not for a "guy" (or gal).

Lisa
