    I just joined since I am settling into my "new" life.

    I call it my new life because after being severely obese since elementary school, I lost 100 LB over 12 months (through diet and exercise, no surgery), and now the world treats me entirely different. People from my past do not recognize me, and when I reintroduce myself they treat me more inclusively. Women smile at me for no reason although they used to avoid me. Guys want me to hang out and drink with them. I can have bad manner, act like a jerk, treat people like sh*t, and be completely callous and NO BODY CARE BECAUSE I AM IN SHAPE AND GOOD LOOKING (When my double chin and overall face fat disappeared it revealed very symmetrical features, a pretty cool cleft chin, nice jaw line, nice cheek bones, and a large adams apple. However, I still do not look good naked because my skin is covered with stretch marks and creases from where rolls of fat used to be. Although, I look great in clothes.)

    I feel so guilty at time because, having been on the other side of the fence for so long, I feel bad because I do hear all those snide things that people say behind the backs of fat people.

    Anyway, I was alway about 5.5-6 inches erect (average) when I was at my fattest but now I am 7.5-8.0 depending on how pudgy I am on that particular day (If I don't strictly monitor my Calories I can noticibly put weight back on like nothing).

    The change in my apparent penis size has been very awkward for me. I constantly have to deal with men and women staring at my crotch while I am riding an exercise bike at the gym, sitting at the edge of a seat, etc. When I try on a new pair of pants, I have to do things like walk up to a mirror rather than just stand in front of it in order to make sure I do not look obscene when it is moving in my pants, and I have not yet figured out how to comfortably position it in my pants. It used to just stick out in front, hidden by my large belly and love handles, and was rather unnoticible when laying across my thigh because my thighs where very wide. Now, it wags back and forth when I walk, there is only a relatively small pooch and love handles which do nothing but remind me that I once was fat, and my thighs are so thin that my penis noticibly drapes all the way across.

    In a way, I feel like I am having to go through puberty all over again because I never had to deal with any of these sexual social interactions. I don't even know how to flirt properly anymore because I used to have to attract women with my nice personality. Now men and women think I am gay because I'm thin and talkative.

    Overall, I hope to just look at how the people on this board deal with social situations so that I can adjust. Hopefully, someday I will wake up and feel comfortable in my own skin rather than like an imposter.

    Congrats on your weight loss. I'm sure you've already had the pleasure of sending someone down in flames who was cruel to you before. I've heard a figure like 1/2" more cock revealed for ever 20 pounds.

    Anyway, welcome to the board. Enjoy your new body...and cock.

    Wow...I thought I lost a lot of weight, but dude you got me beat. I lost about 60 lbs in about the same amount of time, but I did it with just diet (I should've exercised).

    I'm not sure if I was quite as big as you were at 230 lbs, but I SERIOUSLY understand the different looks and what not people give you. Sometimes it pisses me off though. Girls who wouldn't look at you for a second when you were fat, now get clocked in the head from Stop signs cause they can't stop looking at you. I enjoy it, but at the same time, I'm like...love me for me, not for my weight.

    Again...not complaining though...LMAO.:biggrin1:

    My biggest complaint with losing weight is that everyone's mental picture of you stays the same so everytime they see you, they expect you to be fat again and you just have to say, "I haven't lost anymore weight...-_-; "

    Everybody also thinks you are/were on crack.

    I hear ya all the way. I am real tall with black hair and blue eyes, and never had a problem with looks. Now that I am married with a desk job I have packed on the pounds, and the ladies dont like the belly. I havent noticed a lot of loss on my schlong as far as length, but I am sure its there. One thing that is cool is it seems to be thicker. I dont know if this happened because I gained weight or what, but I like it. I am taking adipex weight loss pills and working out now, so hopefully I can drop 50 pounds this year and get back on track like you guys.

    Mate, congratulations on your excellent achievement. I always wondered how much truth there was in the weight loss/cock gain argument, but you're living proof! Welcome and enjoy!

    VisceralTuning... Welcome to the board. Congratulations on your weight loss. You did it the right way.

    As for feeling bad when people you're around tease others about their weight, here's what I do:

    1st Time - Tell them this isn't grade school and to grow up.
    2nd Time - Whip out a fat picture of you then go ape-shit on them. I always keep a fat picture in my wallet - right above my credit card (it keeps me sane at the drive-thru, my one true weakness)

    Pecker, you kill me!

    I also joined this site after losing about 85 lbs (20 of which I've gained back, sadly). I understand completely what you're saying about how people treat you so much differently. I guess that's why I did it though, I wanted to be seen as the girl inside, not the fat girl! I really should post an old pic of me at my full weight, I'll see if I can find one.

    Good luck in your new life, and I hope you'll stick around, this place has been great for me.

    Another congratulations on the weight loss! As you get older it's even harder to get and keep it off. I'm glad you did it now. Quite an accomplishment!!

    Isn't it amazing just how shallow people are in the way they react to others? I've been thin (relatively) and I remember all too well how the ladies (and some gay guys even) used to react -- and even occasionally hit on me. And I found it a nice ego-stroke, as I'm sure you do. Just remember that IF you were to re-gain some significant portion of that weight, a good chunk of those "friends and admirers" are apt to disappear. And no great loss. Still, you've got a lot of reasons to keep it off and I hope you do.

    It's all a big learning experience, pal. Best of luck!

    Simon

    I actually lost my first 60 LB that way. For me, the most important thing was to get the diet in place first then add exercise because changing eating habits seemed like more of challenge than adding exercise because I virtually could not name one thing that I liked to eat that was healthy.

    A person addicted to cigarettes can actually survive without them but a person addicted to food can't survive without it.

    Well, david, let's put it this way. Years before Volvo even thought of it I had an airbag in my car.

    Do you own the original stone tablet that this joke was etched onto, along with papers transferring the copyright to you? :rolleyes:

    Hmm...for me the exercise seems to be the hardest part. Not actually doing it, but making a routine. One hour a day 5 times a week doesn't sound too bad, but actually making it to the gym to do it is the hard part for me. I need to exercise though because while I've lost weight and people say "Oh you look great!" I still have (what I consider to be) a gut instead of a six pack and a toned body.

    I just have to make myself go and that's the hard part.
