    At the age of nineteen I am 5.

    2 feet tall and I weigh a whopping 242 pounds. I have always had an eating problem but it has finally hit the point where I can no longer ignore my fat rolls, my aching knees, or the way my stomach sits on my lap when I am seated. While my friends say that I am fine the way I am...

    Acceptance Of Yourself

    I think the number one comment I hear from people that, like me, are overweight, is, "I have to loose weight". Well, do you really?  I am in my early 50's, and I have been over weight my entire adult life.  I am attractive, I dress well, and I have plenty of self...

    It is hard to accept love when your morbidly obese, or atleast it is for me. For years I found it difficult to believe anyone could honestly love or enjoy being with someone my size. I've always been big but I didn't feel this way in the 200's. But the 300's and up to 500's...
