Any anons here are obese or considerably overweight?

Share the struggles, drama, stories, problems and the not so bad parts of being like that.

>Please don't share your weight x height. That always ends up in infighting. We will trust your word that you're big.

>Also no fat fetish bait. It will be reported and removed.

You shared your height and weight which OP specifically told you NOT to do. You're also still in normal BMI territory and you aren't technically, by the numbers, overweight.

anon are you me? we are almost the same except both my parents worked and both my grandparents spoiled me lol. my grandma always served huge portions for a child, and since wasting food is a sin i have to finish it.
i will never leave my future child in the care of my parents, i never want my kid to feel the pain and heartache of being fat.

as for losing weight ive figured ill never be thin so i mostly focus on upping my stamina so i feel less tired and can move faster for a longer time and also strengthening my back and posture so i have less pain

I used to be 30kg overweight. It was hell. I always felt I couldn't breathe and that I was in someone else's body. I'm still overweight but not as before. Life is so much better now. I feel healthier, my period is normal again and I get a lot more attention now because of my looks. I want to get to a healthy/normal BMI this year. There's nothing I miss about being fat. When someone who is VERY fat acts like they're happy with their bodies, I always think they're lying to themselves. Maybe some people can feel happy, but I was miserable. I can't understand how someone could feel happy being so heavy, lumpy and unhealthy. Chubby I can understand, but I see extra fat almost like a parasite now.

it depends, were you thin before? because if you were then of course you will feel terrible after youve gained weight, but when youve only ever been fat your whole life you can get tired of feel miserable, its hard work loving your body and its hard work being and feeling confident. these people are NOT lying to themselves they are not pretending to be thin they are trying to love themselves for who they are. i applaud anyone who can feel confident and love themselves when they have spent so long not doing so.

I was never thin, I was always pretty overweight. Just not THAT big. I can't understand how someone could feel good, it makes you feel very unhealthy/sluggish.

I really hate the thigh chafe. Used to never get it when I was smaller. I'm aso finding my fat overlays too the waist or when I sit down are chafing recently as well…

I do weights so I'd probably be obese if not.

Currently 15kg overweight, and 38kg from my goal weight. Struggled with binging due to trying to cope with emotional abuse so I gained massively within 2 years. I still struggle with it and it makes me feel so ugly and worthless. And it's not like I have a pretty face or anything so my only hope is having a nice body.

Trying to battle my binge urges and controlling what I eat in order to lose weight is so difficult for me. Hopefully I can lose the amount of weight I want, but it's hard because I've been so big for so long my endurance is garbage. I can't run for long periods, and I get tired after 10-20 minutes of exercise easily. I guess I'll just eat very little so once I get to a better weight where I won't be such a typical obese lardass. I get tired after climbing 3 flights of stairs.

I guess this wasn't supposed to be a vent post but it's connected to my weight so I guess it counts.

Not that anon, but is it even a question of just self esteem alone? When I got fat the physical discomfort was just as bad, if not worse, than being unable to 'love myself' or be confident. Maybe the same logic applies to people who've always been fat, but surely even they can recognize the physical limitations of being big. Struggling with athletic activities, taking up extra space, your thighs rubbing together, your clothes being too tight in certain places, etc. I'm average weight now but my extra body fat still gets the way and bothers me in a physical sense even though it's not too hard on my self confidence.

That's exactly my situation too… It feels good to know I'm not the only. I'd like to weigh 20kg less.

Being overweight has held me back from everything in life.

I never dress the way I want because the styles I like only look good on thin girls. So I dress like a slob because I don't think I'm "worthy" of owning nice clothes and so my wardrobe is just a collection of clothes I have from when I was younger (and want to fit back into), "fat clothes" and just a hoard of things I can't actually wear. I'm still young (25) but I'm conscious of the fact that these "younger" styles I like will look silly on me one day and I'm wasting my youth by being overweight. I barely wear makeup or style my hair because what's the point if I'm still fat? I want to look cute but wearing makeup and dressing nice will draw attention to myself.

I've refused jobs and promotions because they involve interacting with the public. I hate public speaking and socialising, I feel like everyone is judging me. In fact, I flake on friends all the time because they want to do things that make me feel self-conscious about my weight (going to clubs, eating at restaurants, yoga classes). I've just recently reconnected with a childhood friend and I don't even want to meet with her when all of the restrictions are over because I'm afraid of her seeing how big I've gotten. I'm constantly obsessing over how people see me when we're having conversations or when I'm the fattest person in the room.

I have a boyfriend and even though he always reassures me, I can't believe he actually likes me because I wouldn't like me. I have him warned that he's not allowed to propose to me until I'm skinny so I look good in photos and can fit a small ring lol but at the rate I'm going, he'll never be able to propose to me. I never take any photos of myself anymore and when I see a photo taken by someone else, it upsets me so much. I also get embarrassed by the fact that I can't run for the bus or do fun things with my bf like hiking. I make him turn off the light when we have sex even though he hates it (idc, I can't get off if he can see me…). I have new stretch marks all the time and I can't help but think I must look hideous to him.

I want to change but I have a binging problem, especially when I'm stressed. I don't have any hobbies and I have the attention span of a cardboard box so I immediately turn to food to make myself happy. I keep reminding myself of all the things I can't do because I'm overweight (i.e. all the things above) but it doesn't help when I'm in that state, I just want to eat everything around me for that tiny bit of momentary joy it gives me. Then I go back to being depressed. Binge eating is a form of self harm for me too.

what do you weigh and what's your height, anon? it sounds like your hang ups about your weight really impact your life. you can always go to a doctor and they will prescribe hunger suppressants (that aren't heavily abused). it's really not hard to get a script if you're overweight, i've known quite a few people who've done it. don't think they'd prescribe it for like 20 lbs overweight or anything though. if not you could always try adderall if you can't get a script for weight loss specifically. it really makes eating feel absolutely disgusting.

I didn't want to mention it because the OP asked not to but I have a BMI of 35 so I am well overweight. I have spoken to a few doctors about it but medication isn't prescribed here as easily as it is in the US so the most they've been able to do was put me on the pill (which didn't help and if I'm honest, I think it made it worse!).

I'm checking "natural" alternatives from a health shop, would they be totally useless?

I became overweight and eventually obese in the span of 3 years.
Everyone treats you so different. People are colder and more judgemental. Im not going to teach a priest how to pray, but it came to the point where someone insinuated to me that the reason i am fat is that my mother could not love me as a baby.
The only clothing i have are hand me downs from women twice my age or really elastic stuff. Im afraid to buy clothing for my size because i dont want to admit to myself i am this fat, and because
I have so many long, angry red stretch marks all over my body and i cant help but feel like i ruined my body forever. No matter what, these scars will always be there and will always remind me of my period as an obese woman. A loved one also has stretch marks snd compares mine to theirs in an attempt to make me feel better. The difference? Their stretch marks come from strict, harsh, olympic level body training during puberty, while mine come from sitting around and eating like a lardass for 2 years.

The pill often makes it much worse. I remember taking it and getting the worst depressive episodes and gettong 15kg fatter just in the 3 months i was on it.
For me it was a thpusand times worth it to quit it and get smart about other forms of birth control. It just wasnt worth it.

With condoms is the best bet but its feels more rubbery worth it for your body's health. You will just have to do things differently and instead of the usual you will have to opt for finishing the love making with a bj.

Your moid better not dare to finish without making you finish first.
