Wear tank tops, exercise outside, more aggressive about introducing myself to people, etc.

I believe so but don't really know for sure. I have never been so big that I could not do everyday things, even at over 200 lbs after my third child was born.

I still rarely wear shorts but have worn them on occasion, after losing the weight.

I just feel that people respond to me better when I am not heavy, and I feel more attractive and that initself causes a better response from people. I will never know for sure, but I feel it is likely I received some jobs that I might not have otherwise. Of course for the work that I do currently, from home, I was interviewed over the phone, except for one Skype Interview, I was hired without the interviewers knowing what I looked like or whether I was overweight. So I only know I feel better about myself, and cannot prove that it opened any opportunities that I would not have had with the extra weight.

Hiking comfortably. At my heaviest, I was slow and plodding and always sucking wind, but no more. It's so much more pleasant lugging a much lighter body up all the hills. :D

Trust me...I'm not a shy person.
I've traveled the country on business and made friends easily.
I've vacationed alone and always met people.
But At my heaviest...I talked myself out of a lot of things I wanted to do.

What have you done lately that you did not do at your heavier weight. emoticon
