I Get Out Of Breath From Climbing Stairs

    Stairs!!! Haha

    Since I was very small I had weak legs . As I got fatter I started having difficulty going up stairs . As of today and all the extra weight on my knees I have to take break going up the stairs . I hope I won't be able to do it at all soon

    After eating, doing anything feels like a chore.

    So after having to drag myself to the top of the stairs, I pant like I'd just ran a marathon.

    Recent Struggles

    Climbing stairs has became increasingly hard for me as up late, weighing in at 435lb, you can see why. My feeder thinks I think I may need to invest in a stair lift :)

    Stupid Elevator

    I went to my friends and her building the elevator was out of order so I had to climb the stairs to the third floor. Haven't had to climb stairs in a long while. I had to sit on the steps at each floor just to catch my breath and when I got to her apartment I was sweaty and felt...

    Stairs Aren't My Friend

    I first started having problems with stairs quite a while ago when I was pregnant being being bigger and then having a big baby belly took its toll. I found myself avoiding places with stairs and started taking the elevator more. It became sort of a habit for several years...

    I really hope my wife gets to this point Ina

    couple of years. It'd be easier to get her to gain weight if she got out of breath with any exercise!

    Suuuuper Winded

    Going up the stairs has been difficult for as long as I can remember, but recently I have noticed a significant decline in my fitness level. I avoid going up stairs if at all possible, but when I have to I feel like I just finished running a marathon by the top! My belly...

    Fatty On Stairs

    Stairs are most definitely not my friend at over 500 lbs you can probably imagine why.  I struggle with walking short distances let alone climbing stairs but I still like the challenge of them every now and again.  Each time I do a flight of stairs it becomes increasingly...

    I Used To Dance???

    To think I used to dance and now I'm tired just climbing a flight of stairs! I wish my dance teacher could see me now! She would be so disgusted it would be hillarious. She hates fat people. She is the total opposite of me. I love my blubber :)

    I am not very heavy in weight (90kg

    and 1.85m high), but as a very heavy smoker I am winded after climbing some stairs, too. Heavy smoking helps me to not gain weight (I used to have 78 kg when I was 18 and doing sports, but since my mid 20s I have always stayed 90 kg).

    My Arch Nemesis

    Stairs have always been my arch nemesis. I've never been able to make it up a flight of steps without losing my breath. Now I often find myself stopping every couple steps or so in order to catch my breath. At such a large weight, it is difficult to hoist myself up stairs...

    So, recently, I have been trying to gain fat

    and lose muscle. I've been successful! My belly has grown by 2 inches, my arms hang down a lot more, and my thighs are HUGE! My XL clothes are starting to look a tiny bit snug on me. Before my winter weight gain, I could run up 3 flights of stairs at 3 steps a second and not get...

    It's true. A walk up the stairs is like my

    So with me passing the 450 point I have noticed

    that climbing even a flight of stairs brings me too an exhausting point like no other. I have to stop to take a few minute breather just because it's so exhausting. It's definitely making me think other wise about ever climbing stairs again. No use in wasting precious calories...

    I literally just went to a friends house

    and he has an apartment on the 3rd floor. I thought it wasn't really that high so I decided to take the stairs. After climbing the first floor I started tasting blood and knew that it was kind of bad. But still I tried to make it to the 3Rd floor. When I reached it I immediately...

    So I haven't taken the stairs at work in about

    60 pounds, but the elevator was being worked on today so I had no other option. I've always thought of myself as a "fit" fat girl, but evidently I need to revise that opinion. I work on the second floor and felt like I was going to pass out by the time I made it to my office...
