I Am 6'2", Weigh 355 and Love My Size
Over the last four or five years my weight has been up and down. I realized that I loved being fat - even very fat - and over the last five or six months have put on over 50 pounds to now be at 355 with a 60" waist. I love being fat, obese or even morbidly obese, which I think is where I would be clinically categorized. I enjoy eating and have obviously been doing much of that lately. I see from various internet sources that there is now a super obese category (I think that means more than 200 pounds over "normal") and I am working towards being that way with a goal for next year of weighing 400 or more.
To some in society, my behavior and choice may seem odd. However, I am very happy with the way I am and the way I want to be. I love my size and showing it off - always dressing well but in a way to show it. I am very supportive of others who are also obese and their own choices - stay that way, get smaller or grow larger. In my case it is gain more weight.
I am enjoying some of the experiences with my size. My next slacks are going to have to be purchased on line and large enough for my thighs and back side.
Flying is also interesting. On my last flight, I was fortunate to have an empty seat next to me and also I could raise both arm rests. I have become wider and my belly pushes my thighs apart so having more room to spread out was a plus. Our attendant was very poite and brought an extender belt without me asking (first time that has happened). With more than a foot of gap I definitely needed one.
I am finding that when I finish a meal, ususally one where I eat a lot (I like all you can eat places for lunch), I have to take my time to adjust to the new feeling and get my balance. Then I have to take my time waddling out to get used to how full I am and how much I am pushing out front.
Getting in and out of cars is also new. As I back in to get in I am wide enough that I have to adjust to fit in and then reach way around to get the seat belt on. Getting out of the car means taking the time to move my weight forward so I can step out.
With much of my weight in my belly, reaching to put on socks is more challenging. I like the feeling of my belly being in the way when I reach down.
I hope this is a site that is supportive. I am not interested in any of the surgical procedures or any diets. I know why I am this size - after all I did choose to be this way. I love the way I am and how I feel.
