Keeping yourself healthy. And... something else.

To put it simply, I've kind of had a weight problem within my life. It wasn't untill these past few months that I've recently started to lose weight and drop myself down below the 200 pound mark. (This would be a total loss of 30 pounds 220 to 190 in 4 months.)

I've got to be honest, it was absolutely amazing. It's nice to look around and for once be the person without the obesity problem. And then look in the mirror and realize, well, not to be narcissistic, but to realize that "Hey... I don't look half-bad. Still a ways to go... but... I can see how someone might consider me attractive now." Granted there's still a lot of stuff I need to do to make sure I have picture-perfect skin, but it's just... so empowering being able to take control of yourself.

I probably sound like Doctor Phil now or something. "What ya need to do Oya, is get it together! Don't sell me an outhouse and tell me it's the Tajmahal." Heh.

Well... it's just something amazing though. You can do more, you feel emotionally better, less stressed...

The question I have though is this; I see women declaring themselves to be BBWs proudly, but how come it is that I never see men being desired the same way? Or maybe they do, but I just don't see it?

I don't see many men trumpeting that they're "BBM" on here, but I must admit, I'm rather straight, so I don't go digging around looking for that sort of thing. *taps his chin* You know, maybe *that's* what I've been doing wrong all this time! But... grrr... I like how my body feels like this: energetic, calm, relaxed... so I can't really tout myself off as a big beautiful man, because in 20 more pounds, (which I intend to lose as well) I'll be down to a healthy weight.

I find larger men extremely attractive. Always have. NOT just because I am a
"BBW" either. I haven't always been. After three kids (not making excuses) it just sort of happened that way.

However, when I met my husband, he was large. I was a size nine. I think I cut those old pants up for dust rags not long agao. LOL!

Awww. That's a real sweet story! And having kids will do that to you. Price of being a parent. Glad to see at least one person on here think that big men are beautiful.
