About My Weight Gain BlogHello, welcome to my blog and thanks for following.
I am a 28 year old single gay guy living in England, UK. I'm not going to tell you my job, aside from the fact that it is one of the "professions". I'd consider myself well educated and intelligent.
About this blog
The basic premise of this blog is to document my intentional weight gain to 13 stone (182 pounds), as well as to document my general feelings about how my life is going. I would love it if people start to follow me and engage with what I'm doing/ how I'm feeling and an element of dialogue is engendered between us. I've never blogged before, but it's something I've wanted to try for a while as I enjoy verbalising my thoughts and feelings so I thought I may as well do it to an audience.
Intentional weight gain?
Yes you read that correctly. For those who haven't come across this before, I am what's called a "gainer". Basically that's someone who derives pleasure from gaining weight. I would describe that pleasure as erotic, but it doesn't have to be sexual. Some would describe it as a fetish, but I think that term is too sexually loaded. Essentially gainers enjoy gaining weight deliberately. Some take it to a sexual level, others don't (and I don't intend to here).
Why 13 stone?
I am not new to gaining. I have felt gaining desires since a young child (when I can remember stuffing pillows under my pyjamas to pretend I was fat). I first discovered an early version of the website www.bellybuilders.com when I was about 17 and www.beefyfrat.com a few years after that. I am indebted to both those websites for making me realise that I wasn't the only one with these feelings, and for making me feel more normal about it. I first gained weight properly when I was 20 (in 2002). At the time I was 137 pounds (just under 10 stone) and I gained to 11 stone (154 pounds). Since then, I’d describe my relationship with gaining as being on and off. For periods of my life since it’s been far from my mind. At other times, my desire to gain has been intense. I gained to my all time high of 175 this summer (12.5 stone) but since have lost a bit. I am currently 11 stone 11 (165 pounds).
As a naturally skinny guy, when I first developed a belly it was an amazing experience. I really enjoyed the transition from skinny to feeling as though I had a bit of meat on me. However, having spent the best part of 10 years on gainer sites I realise I need to be realistic. I’m not naturally fat. Gaining is not easy for me. I will never be properly fat. 13 stone is realistic for me. 13 stone puts my BMI at “overweight”, and I want to experience that before turning 30. Gaining is a deeply personal journey, and I want you to enjoy the ride with me. For those who disagree, I encourage you not to follow me. I recognise there are health risks, but let’s keep this in perspective: I’m not saying I’m going to remain at 13 stone for the rest of my life.
What else is going on in my life?
I’ve been openly gay for only 2 years, so I still have a lot to learn in that respect. I’m actively looking for a partner, so I aim to keep you updated on how things are going on the dating front. My job is a real challenge, and at times I think it’s not for me, so I hope to keep you amused with my latest thoughts on the career front too.
I’d like to think I’m a nice guy, so if you contact me I will do my utmost to respond.
How I intend to update you
I intend to post fortnightly picture and weight updates. Comments, questions, observations are most welcome.
