    I am 46 years old, and weigh about 275 pounds.

    My question is, if I were to lose weight naturally (no surgery), would I be left with tons of loose skin, or does that only happen with fast weight loss due to bypass? I have very large arms, and stomach. I have already lost some muscle tone due to age I suppose. I can't afford...

    It Really Doesn't Take That Much

    I weigh almost 500 pounds.  People, including the medical profession, look and me and think "My God she must eat 20,000 calories a day."  Well it is not true.  I want to say to these ignorant individuals - just do the math.  I am 56 years old.  Just 500...

    Being morbidly obese is the greatest thing ever.

    I get to eat when I want, what I want and as much as I want. I love how it feels when my man boobs and belly jiggle when I walk. I love the fact that I am to fat to fit into restraunt booths, theatre seats and amusement park rides.
