Not all fat people eat a lot

I'm just tallying up what I ate today and it totals about 1100 calories. I honestly have problems meeting my calorie goals because I don't eat a lot.

Do you assume those who are obese eat constantly or mass amounts of food?

Dh says I eat like a bird too. He eats twice the amount I do and always stays around the same weight.

It took over a year after they figured out what was wrong to finally stabilize me, it's a long process but when it was stable I was able to lose 130 pounds in about 2 years.

Quoting SalemWitchChild:

I've suspected I have a thyroid problem too. I went to the doctor to be tested but all she did was a simple blood test because I'm breastfeeding and she didn't want to do the full panel or whatever it's called. I hear the regular blood test often gives false negatives.

I ate like I was on a diet constantly and gained 70 pounds. I had undiagnosed hypothyroidism.

 You people are full of shit. People that barely eat are not fat. I wonder why there are no fat people in Africa then??

Did you have a problem with them doing the right testing?

I know people assume that's why I'm fat. Why don't you diet and excersize. When I was and still lost nothing I was told, you need to excersize more and eat less, and when I still lost nothing, they assumed I was cheating.

People are jerks. They always have some excuse why it's your lazy fault you're not losing weight. You need to eat those is 6 small meals throughout the day, you're not drinking enough water, more protein less carbs, etc, etc.

 Yup...

That's why a lot of fat people are fat. They eat too little and their metabolism slows down, making them hold on to extra pounds.
