    I started Lipotrim 5 weeks ago at 13.13 and my confidence hit an all time low. im now 12.05 (wi tom)Ive always been 12-13 stone and hold my weight quite well, most people would quess i was 11.5 - 12 anyway i got it into my head that i was unattractive and ugly towards the end. I always had alot of attention from men and i decided i wasnt good enough for anyone anymore. Guys were probably not approaching me anymore cos i looked so bloody miserable in a club setting etc...
    I went out last night for the first time in ages and got chatted up left, right and centre, im wondering today is it actually my weight loss or the fact that im proud of who i am now and im happy....(well on the way)everyone, of all different weights have insecurities etc and maybe its just the way we feel inside that counts because it shines through. A girl of 10 stone may be justs as unattractive as a girl of 30 stonne because she wants to be 8 stone. It really is food for thought...

    An old flame of mine took a serious shine to me last night, having lost interest in me a few months back...now im confused..is he shallow because im looking better or is it because im more attractive because im smiling inside....deep down i wouldnt blame a guy for not being interested in the almost 14 stone me

    Are people treating you differently and what do you make of it??

    Maybe it's a bit of both, and in the end I think we are all a bit shallow or why would we care how we look. I don't just dress for me, I dress for others. If there was no-one else on the earth and I was the last one I would wear super comfortable clothes and wash my hair even less than I do now or shave it off, merely for convenience. ;)

    Mad isn't it... I am fundamentally the same person I was previously (except I have more respect for my body) & yet I'm getting attention left, right & Chelsea...

    It's nice but I take it with a pinch of salt (& a LT shake)... :)

    Hi,

    I think it is a bit of both - like fat people can still be very attractive people and draw people to them with their personality - but when you mix an magnetism attitude with a sexy slim figure - never mind the fricking x factor - you get the WOW factor! lol

    It blows my mind the difference in my life in just 3 months - sometimes it even kinda freaks me out a little... like the attention I get today I would never have got 3 months ago. I feel proud of who I am inside and out and I definitely think that you can be slim and not have the same happiness shine through.

    I had been dressing like a frump for ages - hiding myself and I promised myslef that once I got to goal I was going to look my best every single day. I threw out all my old clothes and started building a new wardrobe up I only have about 10 things in my wardrobe (im going shopping this saturday to add to my collection!) But everyday my hair is perfect, my make up is perfect, my clothes are immaculate, my accessories are cool, my skin is fake tanned... its like I just put so much more effort into looking good. Before I started Lt I just threw something on me and really didnt think too much about it (i dont think i wanted to spend anytime infront of the mirror) lol

    LT definitley changes u inside and out... and that just creates a special spark that attracts people! :)

    ENJOY IT AND TAKE ACTION TO KEEP IT! :)

    I think that having lost some weight that I feel better about myself and have more confidence. I walk taller these days and have a definite gleam in my eye and I believe it is the spark that feeling better about yourself gives you that makes you look more attractive. No-one wants to be with a miserable person so a smile is often the sexiest thing going!

    I have just started my 6th week, and although I have only been on LT so short of a time, I have lost justover 3.5 stonnes, and I have a hell of a lot of weight to loose, and I have noticed that people treat me more like a human being than a blob, even though I am still very 'fat' they threat me better, maybe its because I am doing something about my weight???

    I have said for years, and to be honest i dont care what people think, I would rather be a lovely fat girl, than a skinny nasty girl !

    I knew a girl for over two years, and she took her bad mood out on me, this was about 2 months ago............. she called me a fat bast*** and other things along them lines, and I thought, well if after knowing me for 2 years, if that is all you can criticise about me then wow I am good! !

    I also think that as you lose weight, you gain more self respect and more confidence, certainly that is the case with me. I am now happy to chat to people and not hide away, to engage in eye contact and not be embarrassed, and that in turn affects peoples attitude towards me. Confidence being the biggest component I think!
