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.

Hi I'd like to help u lose weight

be fat be happy

I am 31 as well. I understand what you mean. I really do. <br />
<br />
I am 5'11" and I am 280. I am defined as morbidly obese although people often tell me that I am not obese. I am really athletic and I know its dumb to say, but I am very muscular. I carry alot of muscle on my fr<x>ame and it runs in the family. I just need to get the fat under control and then I will be good to go!!<br />
<br />
I also need to figure out a healthy way in which to manage that with a busy schedule that has me on the road a ton!!

OK, you have a weight issue, but you sound like a great person. Anyone can lose weight, being a good person takes a lot more work. You are only 31 years old. I am 50 and trust me you can make your life anything you want it to be and you can reinvent yourself at any time. I truly believe that anyone can change their life and that every day is a new opportunity.<br />

I am not obese but I do love food ! Also heart disease runs in my family so I recently had to make a lot of changes in my diet. My suggestion would be to start with no fast food. Really, watch Supersize Me for inspiration. Next add vegetables and fruit to your diet. take it one day at a time and stay that "good person" <br />

Best of luck.
