I'm almost 300lbs. I'm 5'5, I don't look 300lbs, but I am. I told myself if I ever weighed that much, that I would need to do some SERIOUS dieting and exercising....well....now here I am. 300lbs.
I was 170 before I got pregnant, but I gained 100lbs, and kept on gaining after I had my son. When I was 170, I was healthy, a little bit chunky, but I could fit into a size 10 and I was happy with that.
I don't have any health issues because of my weight, as of yet. My husband doesn't mind the extra chunk, and I actually think he enjoys it more now that I'm a fatty, but, I need to be healthy first and foremost. I don't have any self-esteem issues, at all, I love who I am, and whether I'm fat or skinny, makes no difference, I can feel good and look good at any size...I just need to be healthy.
My goal is 150lbs because thats supposedly the weight I should be at (actually thats the most I should be at, my doc says I should be 135, but I'm thick so, my weight is distributed differently than the average)But I think I would be fine at 170 or 160.
I'm doing this. I have to.
