How to be attractive after weight loss?
Tips to look good and go ahead in life
You seem to have gone through a lot and it might just be the right time to learn a few other skills that could make you
more confident in public and
attract others to
you. As I said above, since most people see your body in public, even before you say anything the language that your body speaks is all that matters first. According to
Gordon Wainright author of Teach Yourself

That is what happened to Katherine, who gained
about 100 lbs as a teenager, weighing well over 250 lbs. After the teasing from classmates got on her nerves, she dropped out of school, and
depression. "I was at home 24X7X365 and just wouldn't even want to answer the door. I gained some more weight, my
self esteem reached its

- Listen well. People will love you more if you can
simply listen to them and ask
questions. Take this idea out of your head that you have something so important to say that you should talk. Most of us will do just fine in life by listening. No I am not saying that you become a doll that only shakes her head in agreement. What I am trying to say is that listening is more important than talking in
making you more
- Great posture. If you look sloppy, people think of you as someone dull and boring.
So stand straight, tuck in your tummy, hold your head high, and smile as often as you
can. People will start interpreting your body language as that of a person with confidence, charm, and style.
And that is the kind of people we all want to hang out with.
