Is it TERRIBLE how much I'm enjoying the new male attention I'm getting this summer?? I'm getting so vain with all of the looks I'm receiving.

But it's a good vain! Because we have experienced being so overweight to where we couldn't even stand looking at ourselves our vanity will only reach a certain level because we'll appreciate our new bodies. For those who never struggled with this the expect attention and don't appreciate it. I'm speaking in generalities, of course!

So YOU GO GIRL! Soak up the sun and the attention and rock that new bod of yours!

Good for you! If you enjoy it, then go for it! I have mixed feelings about it. While I find it flattering, I feel very uncomfortable with it.

Enjoy it I say! I went shopping yesterday and had a few guys check me out, and one cashier even flirted with me. All with my 5 year old in tow. Talk about motivation to keep going.

I don't know. For me, I think it might be just having been ignored for the last few years and now guys actually take a second glance (or stare). Feels good!

My husband and I were talking about this the other day. Some girls (and guys too) have been 'hot' all their lives*, and have this sort of entitlement attitude towards just about everything.
I think the victory will be sweeter for someone who has fought for their new body. I know I will never take it for granted.
But live it up!

It's also a lot about confidence though. There are plenty of slim women who don't notice/invite/attract male attention because they slouch around and try to be invisible. If you feel good, people will pick up on it and some of those people will be men checking you out.

(I'm the confident hip-swinging sort and I have always gotten a fair amount of attention, even when I'm fat and even as I get older (35) and even when I am really, really not trying to court male attention. I agree that it is often really uncomfortable and unpleasant. A nice reminder of your basic hotness, once in a while, but otherwise a bothersome thing that puts one on the defensive. I do not like predatory men!)
