emphasis on the word "thinner" I don't mean thin...just when you've lost weight

yes, very much, as the personality is very important even the beauty which gives you more confident as compared to fat people or ugly ones.

I don't.I feel much more confident if I am proportional.I can't really be slim or thin because I have really big bones.I have wide hips and shoulders.what will set-off my body is a waist proportional to my hips and shoulders.I am a bit proud of myself because I am proportional;I have 36Bs for boobs and a little plump behind.

I do.Ü I'm happy that I can wear anything that I want. I don't feel insecure beside friends who are thin. I don't hide myself when I'm out and a friend says that we have to pose in front of the camera. I don't have to wear black all the time. There is this great sense of confidence that you have when you're thin and thinner - it's not easy to explain, but I feel great.

I have been overweight/obese almost all my life and being thinner ALWAYS makes me feel more confident. At the start of the year, I was at my heaviest weight ever at 184 pounds! I started going to the gym and dieting last February and I have lost 30 pounds since. I am now definitely more confident with how I look and feel. I went down 4 sizes and I'm now as slim as I was the day I got married. I'm still overweight but I'm not hiding anymore. I gladly pose whenever someone takes photos of me and I can now easily shop for my clothes (as long as I have the money to shop with, that is!). What I hate most about being overweight is the thought that I did that to myself and there's no one to blame but me. Getting thinner makes me feel like I have really done something good and that's taking care of myself.

I think it does have some effect on my confidence when I lose weight. When i lose a few pounds, I few prouder for having taken off the weight i would feel more fit and think I look better in my clothes. It might not be that noticeable to others when i lose a pound or two but I'll feel different

yes, looks are an important factor now a days. and i give looks which also include figure an important tool in getting success in many fields. Loosing weight indirectly reminds one about being thinner or having perfect figure. Its a sign of beauty and due to it the opposite person gets attracted and any work whether its personal or official becomes easier.

I feel not strong, like an anorexic look like I could easily fall during windy days. i never feel better being thin as you could look like you have been deprived of food. It looks like you just comes out of being sick..Also, being thinner could make you look sad and old. i like my weight to be a balance between being fat and thinner. Then, the advantages if you are thin you could move or insert yourself in the middle of the crowds and more faster to move than if you are fat. Then, you could wear all clothes you like.
