    I know what you mean. I was always accustomed to men holding the door for me, never once thinking it had anything to do with being a size 6. Boy was I in for a rude awakening the first time I attempted to strut through the door behind the gentleman ahead of me weaing a size 18...lol. Good thing I am swift otherwise I'd have a broken nose.

    You are absolutely right!!! That's one reason I enjoyed being pregnant so much was because I got more positive attention from men... they were more likely to hold a door open for a pregnant woman than someone that was simply obese.

    You go girl!! Today I was in the post office in line and some random guy said hello to me and I was just kind of like, "Umm.. hello?" Like is this guy talking to me?! LOL! I'm even further from being "thin" than you are, Katie... but it feels good to have a man smile and actually look you in the eye... instead of avoiding eye contact with you like you were some homeless lepper with halitosis!

    Default Attention from men is EFFING awesome!

    I'm married but its always nice to feel pretty The last two weekends I've been walkin' through the city like a celebrity. I used to hold my head down and quickly run my errands hoping that no one would notice me. Now I get all fancy just to go to the store. I gotta admitt that part of me misses not being hit on all the time but part of me can't get enough It must be something about my confidence cause I'm still a long way from thin. But it seems like mens' heads are turning faster than they ever did...even when I was lookin' hot -back in the day.
    I've got arms and legs on my body...
