Yes, I Am Morbidly Obese.
i am 31 yrs old and yes i am morbidly obese. I needed to say that, i needed to hear myself say that so that i can start wanting to be smaller. I have always been the biggest person in the family, and the idiom that says" the elephant in the room" is quite literal to me. I am 270lbs at 5'3". Growing up i felt i have been emotionally traumatized because people would often make fun of me because of my heft. Even my own relatives despise the fact that i am fat, and yet i grew up to be a good person. i know what it feels like to be told you're pretty but your fat.. It's almost saying you almost hit it but you missed.. I know what it's like to become the second or third choice because my physique isnt quite as attractive as the other girls around me.I was turned down for a job because they taught i was so big i would not be able to perform my job well. I have been bullied, picked on, and called names i never want to remember and yet I have a lot of friends. I was always struggling with this weight and i have never wanted it off me, until now. I just want to lose some weight. I hate it when people would say , hey you are getting fatter.. I want to tell them Hey I know i am fat okay, you dont have to remind me about it. I will lose weight..with your help i know i will.
