Men: Would you date an attractive, big girl?

I know men have their preferences on the size of a partner, but I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
I'm a big girl - 5'3", 310. Very cute face, very stylish, and I would be, by general societal standards, a very hot girl if I lost the extra weight. I've been out of the dating scene for many years because of my own self-consciousness about my weight. But I've had a few encounters lately that make me wonder if this is largely MY hang-up and not mens'. (A couple of very attractive, professional men have been interested.)
For what it's worth, I'm a SWF, 34, no kids, have a good, professional career, have my shit together, little baggage, own my own home, I'm drama-free, laid back, funny, intelligent and very easy to get along with. And I'm confident in all areas of my life except for that one, and I try to exude that confidence, even despite my own hang-up.
I guess my question is, would the weight be a deal-breaker for you? Are these two instances lately a fluke, or is it really not as huge a deal to you men as I thought it was?
Also, please no comments on "lose the weight!", "get healthy!", etc. This is not the thread. I know what I need to do. Thanks.
