Reminds me of a cute woman working at a grocery store in my town. I first saw her about a year ago. Already felt like asking her when she was expecting her baby. But today she still has that cute belly, glad I did not ask back then, she might have been insulted

It's difficult to say. Some people carry weight well and others simply do not. It's really all about how you see yourself, though. If you think you're beautiful then you will be and other people's opinions won't matter.
But if you're concerned about how others would think of you because of your extra weight, just go on a diet and exercise. 60lbs isn't that much to loose, it'll be gone in no time.

Oprah is very lovely when she is thin, but man, does that ever CHANGE when she gains 60 lbs.

The singer Patti Austin has also seen strong weight fluctuations over the decades. When she lost a whole lot, it was hard to recognize her

60 pounds of extra weight is a lot.

I thought Nigella Lawson was still beautiful when she was heavy, but she looks great now that she's lost weight, too. I think that what matters is how the weight distributes on your body. It's that difference between being "thick" and curvy versus being fat and blobby. Unfortunately, that's not something that you can control.

Look at Gweneth Paltrow, in "Shallow Hal". While the wieght on her for the show was done with make up, and a body suit, it demonstrated that she was very unattractive with the extra weight. She said that she would go to the bar, in the full make up, and body suit, to see the reactions she recieved from the people there, and felt that weight discrimination is one of the biggest social problems in our society today. She was ignored, by both people in the bar, and even the wait staff. Or people would stare at her, but no one would talk to her, or even offer her a menu, until she requested one.

As a man it all depends where some of the weight went. Don't mind thick and curvy, look up "zaftig" on the internet and see what I mean. But one place that is unattractive is when people get a fat head. Nothing at all appealing about a big melon head like you see on Wynonna Judd.

Can Extra Weight Make a Beautiful Woman Unattractive?

Does anyone actually think it is impossible for the answer to be yes? In order for this answer to be yes, all it takes is evidence of one beautiful woman putting on extra weight and becoming unattractive. Since this has happened, the answer is yes. The only way it can't be true is no beautfiul woman who has put on extra weight became unattractive, ever.

They both look unattractive with the weight gone(according to some people)
Definately. Jesica Alba is another one in my opinion. She had a very youthfull rounder face and some cute curves that she gave up to be Hollywood thin...No Bueno! Gaunt doesn't cut it in my book.
