So I've been texting a guy for two weeks and we're off on a date this weekend. I come out of a longterm relationship (5 years) middle of last year, so dating is still quite new to me. I put on weight during those years and only recently started going to the gym more and eating properly in the last two months, and the weight is dropping off. I'm not a health buff, but I'm proud of how much I've lost so far. I'm tall, and still classed as overweight, but would this topic put a guy off? Would it be too much too soon? I enjoy showing people before and after pictures too sometimes.
I've read each response and I believe it'll be acceptable to mention my goal if the gym and weightloss subject springs up!

Someone did that on a date and I was fine with it, it said she was serious and had a goal.
In general, I'd only talk about it in context of your goals.. e. g. I'm at the gym all the time working towards my goal and getting in shape for [a half marathon, or whatever]. I wouldn't say I'm 200lb and I want to be 160... it just doesn't matter... who cares unless he asks.3

Talk about His Interests First on this First date. Then, if you would Like, Go into Healthy eating with him, get his own Input of this subject matter, and Then... Get Into some things about yourself that you want to talk about and this is the gym and eating properly, among other things you may even have in common.
Not Every guy or gal is Into the Eating and Exercise thing, and if he isn't, Politely tell him "Maybe I can help then," and this may even Lead into another second date.
Good luck and Great going. xx0
