Only look good online

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

So I have been thinking about my weight loss and the ups and downs of it...I just feel good about where I am headed right now. I have been working out every single day for about two weeks now (with the exception of yesterday because I had a stomach bug). I feel like this is exactly what I needed to feel more confident again.

I have been pretty serious about trying to find that special someone and I realized that Im not being truthful about my dating profiles. I only put close up pics of my face (which come on ladies we all know those look the best) and never any of my body. There are two things that happen I have concluded because of this. 1) I meet up with the guy and he never speaks to me again after the first date 2) I meet up with the guy and he realizes he wants all the luxuries of sleeping around with me but no strings attached (friends with benefits). I am not looking for that at all so I realized I need to start being more comfortable taking full body pics or I will never meet someone that likes me for me on that dating site. It's super scary to see the pic I am including, even worse is that ive already lost 30 plus from when I started.

Im on the right track and I am super motivated I just hope that somewhere along the lines (maybe ill even meet a gym guy) ill find someone WORTHY enough of my time. I am strong believer that if a guy cant love me for me now, why should I give him the time of day when I finally lose more weight?

Heres the ungodly picture from today...and yes my hair and face don't look so amazing but give me a break it wasn't even 7 am yet :)

    Good for you for being brave enough to put yourself out there. I'm a firm believer that everyone ends up where they are supposed to be. Keep your chin up and keep working; you're doing a great job!

    Aww thanks guys :) I always put bbw as body type....o that annoying question about what body type you are....most guys say they really like bbw..but what they really mean is they like strictly curvy girls...I'm pretty sure I give up on the dating thing for now..my health routine/ lifestyle changes are def more important...speaking of Steph I thought of you a lady came in and demos how good hula hooping is for your core...I may have to buy a hula hoop :)

    I think you look super cute! My BIGGEST fear of the "online dating" is that I would meet a guy and he'd be like "I knew you were fat, but not THIS fat". So I was always very honest and upfront about being a bigger girl and showing the pics to prove it. In fact I have been told "You look skinnier in person". It is definitely important to be honest, guys are stupid to begin with (no offense guys), and if some guy put up a picture that he looked nothing like, you would feel odd because he wasn't who he thought you were. You are beautiful now and 30 pounds ago, and any guy is lucky to have you. Be proud of who you are and show you off and you will find the right guy who realizes how amazing you already are! emoticon

    You've come so far and I know you will keep up the hard work and accomplish everything you dream of. I want to believe that taking care of our lives will help lead us to finding the right person. He is out there and you will find him when the time is right. Until then focus on yourself.

    Way to go on putting it out there. You'll find Mr. Right when the time is right. I tried online dating, refused to meet or go outh with anyone who only wanted a booty call. They were to invest time and energy getting to know me before anything happened. Turns out I met a great guy who was with someone else seeking friends and well low and behold we've been married nearly a year.

Good luck

  I really believe that someone worthy will value you for your intellect, your personality and your spirit. I'm not trying to claim that the physical doesn't matter, but none of the people who have really loved me have given a stuff whether I was a size 22 or a size 10. Physical attraction has to do with way more than fatness.

You have a beautiful smile, lovely hair and great eyes - the right person will see them!

    I hate full body pictures of myself too! It's a hard thing to get past, but I think to see progress we have to take them. Keep it up!!! emoticon
