Well I'll add a reply a year afte rthis thread was started (but hey - I just joined!).
As a REALLY large guy, one of the reasons I decided to explore social nudism was for the acceptance, more mine than anyone else's. I started down a weight loss path last June and while that's helped, I learned I really needed to accept who I am RIGHT NOW, not 146 lbs from now. (well it's actually 97 lbs at this moment)
While I haven't actually gotten out there in public yet (still waiting on the weather!), I have been online, full frontal, full monty on cam for 2 months now and my confidence has just gone WAY up. Seriosuly! I figure if I can let it all hang out and even post pictures (something I never thought I'd do at this size) , in person and in public won't be a huge deal.
Both my wife and I are in the 3X range. I long ago gave up worrying about what anyone else thinks of me, my size, or anything else I do that's none of their business. Wifey is still stuck in the body-conscious mode, but we're usually nude at home, and I'm lucky enough to have two nude beaches I can go to only 25 miles away, on the Columbia River, so I'm working on spending more time there. It's better for my health to get exercise, and I prefer to do it nude. Walking, swimming, tanning-do it all, and don't worry about what anyone MIGHT say to you; it probably won't happen. Give 'em a glance, then talk to them while you're looking them in the eye, and they'll probably afford you the same courtesy. Good luck, and PARTY NAKED!
Well myself and hubby are not exactly slim not by a long shot, and myself i have disabilities and so rather large in to many places, infact been called fat etc etc...so was very scared to go nude in public..BUT when i did it was best thing i ever did..no one cared what i looked like (well no one said anything) just all accepted me with open arms to be who i was fun loving and caring, what u look like is just ur shell its not who u really are, if people have not got time to look past your shell and find the real you then its their loss...hold ur head high..if i dont now and put myself down i get told off lol
a large lady wearing nothin cept a little jewelry is far more beautiful than a well dressed slim lady --
even if she is dressed sexy she will still not be as beautiful as the larger lady
in fact if it is too sexy it might not be a beautiful sight at all - just sexy
ever notice a canine just looks silly in clothes - all clothes do for humans is cover up how beautiful we all really are
I think any BODY, that has the courage to go NUDE is a step above in the Personality Department.. I keep my Nude friends and my clothed friends separate... My nude friends have been the best, lately.. I notice they are more relaxed and not up-tight about LIFE, MONEY, BODIES etc...
Thanks all for the comments,I will not be so so self conscious on my next outing.My company has relocated to eastern Pennsylvania so maybe I can check some of the nudist areas back there,not to many in Montana. thanks again Bill
I think crystal223has a very pretty face.I'm also sure she has a great personality.(From her profile and comments on this site.)I also think that whatever you look like has no bearing on living nude,it's a matter of attitude.So next time you're out,no matter if you're clothed or nude say HI to everyone,and wish them a good day.It's an attitude like that,that will make this world a better place.
