I'm wondering from those who have done it how your overall confidence feels after starting to gain. Are you more or less confident than when you were then? Especially after the weight becomes noticeable to other people.
Im not exactly fat yet, but I do feel better looking with every pound I get. Not so much confidence though, thanks to outside negative forces. Everyone's gotta make a comment when the "skinny person I used to know isnt so skinny anymore".
im feeling waaay more confident and sexier the more i gain, i've recieved comments from fam/friends about it and it honestly doesnt bother me, nor will it once i get well and truly fat and they say something then. *shrug* i love my body more and more and have never been happier
i think for me i've always been skinny so i never had to go through bullshit society fatshaming me or anything like that so my experience is completely different. not to say i dont have esteem issues cuz i certainly do like every other human, and coming from a fam with one of those old school highly critical black grandmothers certainly doesnt help much, luckily i dont interact with that side of fam much anymore so i dont have to hear that mess.
