I Am Morbidly Obese

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,800 People

    In October of 2013, I was a stick- 165 pounds

    on a 6ft1 frame. Since then, I've gained a ton of weight- nearly 100 pounds, leaving me a big fat 262 pounder with a BMI of 34.6 Once I get these last 3 pounds, I'll officially be in class 2 of obesity.

    Acceptance

    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...

    once upon a time. You used to have a job, friends, a life. But slowly and steadily your self control slipped away. First it was a pound here, a pound there. “I’ll start dieting next week…” but all you did was eat more. Soon you’d become so fat and lazy that even...

    Why is it that the only thing someone can say

    to someone obese is how fat they are? I mean when someone wants to come at me with negative comments it's always about the weight. When I come back at them with something deeper they shut up.
