Default Weight holding you back?

So...there is this guy at work...

Yeah, cheesy I know! But here's the story...I work in an office environment. The company really pushes proper ergonomics and whenever anything starts feeling off, they send a specialist in to evaluate your posture, tools, etc. Okay, so the guy who comes in to test me - GORGEOUS. He's fit, handsome, and to complete the package he's very, very kind. We chat a bit about the ergonomics assessment, but leeway into a conversation about weight loss. He had originally wanted to be a fitness instructor/health advisor, and had already lost 32 pounds and was down to 10% fat that year. He's been continuing a dialogue with me via email talking about my goals and helping me with questions.

Here's the part that sucks though. My immediate thought is that this guy could never in a thousand worlds or thoughts, be interested in someone like me because I'm pushing 300 pounds. The line "A 10 doesn't lower himself to stand beside a 1" keeps repeating in my head. Logically I know he either does or does not consider me potential dating material. But I ALSO know that I will never pursue anything with him because I'm so afraid of what my weight would mean.

It seems easy for me to talk because I've been in a relationship forever and have forgotten what it feels like to be looking for love.

BUT, I would say go for it, you only live once.
You're beautiful as you are, not just once you've lost weight.

I concur. You've got nothing to lose. What's the worst that could happen? Nothing would come of it? That's what's going to happen anyway if you DON'T try, 100% probability. But if you do try... your odds of a better outcome are a lot higher than zero!

That's true...I guess it would be best to give it a go. I just worry so much that my weight means more than I do. Does that make sense? Like it doesn't matter what my personality is, likes or dislikes, who I am. All people see is the weight and what that automatically means about me as a person. It's frustrating.
