Hi all,
I went to my sister's bachelorette party last night and we were dancing and drinking at a club all night. All the girls were having a blast :carrot: and I'v always seen myself as invisable to men. I'm married to a wonderful man for 8 years, and we've been together for 17 total, so since i was 14 years old. Needless to say I've been out of the scene for a while. But I am at 65lbs weight lost so far, from 339lbs to 274lbs. I feel great, look better and have a bit of confidence too! But I was totally shocked when a bunch of us girls were standing outside trying to get a cab when a Young Man, maybe a couple years younger or close to my age, was hitting on me! Not the other girls with me, who are all smaller and very attractive....but ME! He was polite and sweet and NOT INTOXICATED...so it was so flattering. I would not ever cheat on my husband and I didnt' lead him on, but MAN IT FELT GOOD... to feel like A WOMAN again! I was blushing and it really gave me an ego boost. So I have been having a hard time sticking to my routine and plan lately, as my sister is getting married friday. With everything going on, I've just not been doing all I can to take care of myself. But now, I need to get back at it. It felt good to be noticed. Just thought I'd share some feelings of how my life is changing and imagine what will happen with the next 100lbs? Thanks for listening!

That's awsome! I totally know what it's like to feel invisible. I have experienced that a few times recently which really got me down. Good for you! Enjoy every minute! you've worked too hard not to enjoy it!
