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.
