    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...

    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 :)

    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...

    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 :)

    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...

    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...
