Are you obese?

Just curious how many mom's are not just "chubby" but obese. If you are do you care? Do you do anything about it or do you use the old excuse about having kids as a reason to be fat? I'm genuinely curious considering how America is becoming renown for it's fattiness.

  • Yes I am obese. Why do you care? What purpose in your life is served by judging how fat I am? Do you think I don't know I am fat? Do you think you need to inform me of the "medical benefits" of losing weight? I think you probably just are lucky that genetics struck you a happy stroke and you should stop being judgemental.

  • In medical terms, yeah I am considered "obese." Even relatively healthy people could be considered "obese" according to their weight and height ratio.

    I have an eating disorder. I've tried to kick it since I was 10 years old. No luck yet.

  • Nope. I was overweight after my 3rd child...but I refused to allow myself to become "that" person.

  • I should be obese but because I am so tall I am not. I exercise but not as much as I should and my diet I have to say is very mixed.

  • when my kids where home I was thin, now that I'm older I have gained a lot of weight. I'm chubby now :) I'm working on it, I try to walk around Target, Walmart etc. Have cut down on some stuff. It is hard to loss weight when you do get older. Oh well I'm happy anyway.

  • I am. Am I proud of it? No. I am trying to change it. It's hard, but I'm trying. I've been trying since I was in middle school. It always fails, but I'm trying to make sure this time it doesnt.
