    No judging here please, but I've started talking to a guy online now that my marriage is pretty much over. I sent him some pictures of me (all PG) and he thought I was beautiful. I was truthful about weight and he just thought I had gorgeous, sexy curves. He's really good looking, has a 6-figure job...THIS kind of guy thinks I'M sexy, witty, smart, funny...

    After 15 yrs + of being told/shown I wasn't good enough, pretty enough by my husband /mother, I can't tell you how incredible I feel. DH always makes me feel about as important as something stuck on his shoe. It's completely raised my confidence. I haven't smiled this much in years, or felt this sexy...or like a WOMAN in years.

    And so, I had a great workout yesterday, and really working harder than ever. Because I've discovered I'm worth better.

    Sorry it was so long ☺

    Your first line tells us that you are already aware of the risk you're taking. Please be careful.

    I'm not actually. It's more that some folks frown on chatting with someone else online. So hence the line. We're both in the boat of having spouses that want to walk, but we're not even meeting until they do. We both have kids & they come first.

    But thank you...and to my other friends...I will be very careful. But it's a fantastic ego boost...and a much-needed one.

    Yesterday I ran a 6 minute mile on the treadmill without walking part of it. :)

    Congratulations on finding someone who makes you feel the way you deserve to. :)

    I know couples who met online, and I met my own hubby on a blind date (28 years ago, before 'the internet' was really a thing), so I know it can work out. And 'internet friends' are no less important than 'real life friends', even if you never actually meet them in person - I have more of the former than the latter, so definitely no judging here! :smiley:

    For my own NSV, I've noticed that after 3 weeks of healthier eating and doing a little exercise, I have more energy and am sleeping better than I used to. I was able to (mostly) keep up with the pace of my little fitness video today, and it made me feel very good about myself! :)

    So my nsv is opening up to the emotional side of weight gain/loss and the reality of how long I have had a negative body image and realizing I don't have to feel that way anymore, I have support and I am in control!

    That is wonderful, in more than one way. :)

    Spent most of this afternoon on refitting 4 pairs of pants. I just could not wear them anymore without looking somewhat silly as they were getting very low slung. It kinda scary as there is no way back from cutting off fabric. one I took 6 cm out of the waist the others between 3 and 4 cm. Next the yoga pants (again). There are some drawbacks to loosing weight, but I am grateful for my seiwngskills. Saves major money at the moment

    Just on a positive note there: On-line through chatting is how I met my wonderful amazing husband after a terrible realtionship much akin to what you describe. Good luck!

    I used to be an active long distance cyclist ... ultra distance. Randonneuring, audax, 24-hour races and things like that.

    Then a few years ago, my activity level dropped for various reasons and I put on a bit of weight.

    So one of the main reasons why I joined MFP and set about losing weight was to get back into Randonneuring again.

    Yesterday I cycled my first 200 kilometre randonnee since March 2012, and completed it in 11 hours 18 minutes total time. :grin: I am so pleased to have done that and absolutely ecstatic about the time. The time limit on a 200K is 13 hours 30 min and I figured I'd be right close to the limit ... finishing with so much time to spare was amazing!

    My ride report is here:

    -Had to get new skinny jeans, happy to report I'm down to a 16 in nearly every store I walk in to.
    -Thrift shopped and get some new button downs, all in an XL, no more plus size tops! Which is so crazy to me since the arms are usually my biggest issue with button downs.
    -Going out last night for my friends birthday and saw people I hadn't seen in over a year who couldn't stop going "wow" at what I look like now. I didn't think I was that different.
    -Realized over the past two weeks or so, when I sit in meetings I cross my legs more. I wasn't really able to comfortably before.
    -Tried on a pair of size 14 jeans and they buttoned, the muffin top was out of control so I passed but whoa.

    A year ago I could barely walk 2 miles, took me almost an hour, now I can walk/jog/run 5 in under 70 minutes
  • According to DH's phone, we walked 6 miles on Friday and 9 miles on Saturday while in NYC for the weekend.

    1. Went grocery shopping and was actually feeling super proud of myself for not purchasing any junk food or pop. A major step in the right direction from the cheese puffs (my weakness...) and cookies I usually find myself buying.

    2. Managed to get through the entire weekend without any fast food. As each day passes, I crave it less and less.

    I visited a girlfriend yesterday whom I haven't seen in a few months, and the first thing she said to me was "holy cow, your thighs are amazing!" It's summer in Australia & I was wearing short-ish shorts which I have only just become comfortable wearing around people who I know. And nobody has EVER said I have amazing thighs. Ever.

    It's still very hard to see myself the way others are seeing me, but a compliment like that was definitely what I needed to continue my journey with renewed confidence. Sometimes it's the little things that keep us going xx
