    Although, I haven't had someone tell me they are afraid of me (because apparently I look[ed] intimidating) in a long time. I guess that's progress.
    Based on your avatar, I would probably lear at you. Particularly if shirtless.

    I get hit on and more attention now.

    And yeah, I notice how fat people are now. Especially young people which is really sad.

      Also, sbhikes, you look pretty damn good to me from your thumbnail pic. Definitely in the "would" category. And I'm not middle aged, fat, unattractive or particularly humble. So you can trust my opinion here.
      Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

        And SBHikes, the only woman I would want a body like of that group is the one on the far right. The rest of them are too thin for me, but look like nice, bubbly and confident people.

          I totally agree... she definitely has the "best" body. At least the only one I would ever want to come close to looking like.

            But what I have noticed big time is....just how fat most of the people I see in the store are. And only since going primal. I see them and wonder if they had different things in their carts (always SAD) if they would be thinner, healthier and less likely to be riding around in that motorized cart.
            The funny thing is that I get eye rolls and dirty looks from people in the grocery store when they glance at my cart of ribeyes, butter, bacon, and chicken (with skin!). Of course there is also usually a ton of broccoli, blueberries, and other fresh and frozen veggies. These people are often thin, but their carts are usually filled with pre-cooked frozen chicken strips, canned corn, and of course... some sort of granola/fiber bar! I just smile... sure I may be fat, but I am working on it. That and even before PB I ate better than some of these thin people. I just have a tendency to gain weight easily.

              Those ladies are all on the UCSB running team which is why they're so skinny.

              Seriously, most women in SB look similar, if not that skinny. And sheesh, they're wandering around in little sports bras like that on the trails and on the beach and everything. Not only do we have UCSB, but we also have a popular community college and a private college with women like that plus a whole community full of "trophy wives". So yeah, ain't nobody gonna notice me.

              Everybody always talks around here about all these fat people in the stores or at Wal-mart. Well, we don't have a Wal-mart. You can see some pretty fat ones at Costco (you have to wonder why people don't put 2 and 2 together.) But the beautiful people are everywhere. This town is crawling with them.

              If you are young and looking to go to a good college, you might consider coming to Santa Barbara. Not only can you get a top quality education, you'll be surrounded by a lot of pretty girls and good-looking men, too.

                    I like younger men too ... although... maybe I just like fit/healthy men, and most men my age AREN'T and therefore I find the younger ones more attractive?!
                    this is so true as i do know a few men who are pushing 60 who i think are attractive and it is coz they are fit and healthy. there is the mental aspect as well. we are what we eat so the brain and thinking suffers on junk. plus i reckon you get the face you deserve in the end so if they have had a chilled life and had nice thoughts, they tend to be more attractive too.

                      Well, don't count yourself out because you are in your 40s with teenagers... just wait a little longer ... I am now 8 months in, 51 yrs old, and have two grown sons, married (not consciously sending out any vibe)...I have begun to notice more looks, ogling, smiles, etc. I think it's because I look better and I am more confident.

Yeah, I have the husband who worries about me getting too thin, even though I just barely have a bikini-respectable bod. When Angelina Jolie was presenting at the Oscars he yelled "who revived the Egyptian mummy!?" So take heart sbhikes, there's guys who find the anorexic look completely unattractive.

                        But my husband is far from perfect. When I met him he would start making mooing sounds if he saw a woman with a bust larger than a D. I've knocked that out of him. Seriously, some women can't help it.


                        I've been getting carded at the supermarket more often. That's just annoying. Flattering, yes, but in practice quite annoying.

                          I get checked out more, light touches on the forearm that linger a millisecond longer than strictly necessary are more common and women fiddle more with their hair around me. So yeah, it's a nice perk.

                            Well, that's tough. Then, again, where-ever I lived, people were normal, even when I ventured in the scary USA places were people were far heavier than average, I still fit in the Les Invisibles. In fact, I think I would be even if I looked like one of those gals. It's about the attitude, not the bod. The Je ne sais quoi that makes a woman endlessly hittable and desirable by random men around is not a waist-hip ratio. I might not know what it is, specifically, that draws all men to that one gal in the room, make them run after her in the streets, and strike a convo on the bus, but I know that it is not beauty.

I was a toothpick, so I'm well aware of the genetics of not being able to gain weight. 4, on the other hand, appears to have a healthy metabolism and her body appears to be working with her, not against her. I would say it's just the angles, but looking at the waist/ hip curve difference between 1 and 4 belayed that. 1's is sharp and pointy; 4 has an actual curve.

                              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                                To be fair, they are athletes, runners, I assume distance runners which somewhat selects for a thin, light figure. There is no bonus of having tits and ass for running. They don't look unhealthy or suffering, they just don't look sexy. It's not a look or a body I'd aspire to unless my goal was to win at distance races.

                                The Je ne sais quoi that makes a woman endlessly hittable and desirable by random men around is not a waist-hip ratio.
                                I'd say its that men prefer a wider range then we think is attractive. If you are in that range, they will hit on you, and you are right, you have to send out the vibe. I smile a lot, in fact I always smile. I never don't smile. It's how my face is. So I do get a lot of random male conversation. It is about being open, but when I was 250, I still smiled, but people never made that eye contact/connection that allowed you to be open.
