How do you let yourself get so fat?

No one is born fat.

How do you just let yourself get fat? I can maybe understand if you are fat as a kid but a lot of people start to gain weight in their teens on up(once they hit puberty I think). How do you let yourself get to 200+ lbs when the average weight for your height is 120?

When I was 16 I went from 130 to 160 and knew rigt away that something needed to be done. I started working out and eating better. I'm now at 125 at 28 years old.

How could my 16 year old self see that I was gaining weight but some adults don't see it?

My guess is that you do see it, you are just too lazy to do anything about it.

Hormones, pregnancy and some bad genes. Thank God for the discipline so I didn't stay that way.

You're right, I was very lazy and depressed and I didn't give a crap about myself. Luckily that is changing! :)

Thats a good question I wonder the same. Its disgusting and id feel disgusted myself if I was fat. I refuse to allow that to happen.

Some babies are born very fat, mostly due to gestional diabetes. Just saying.

I started meds at age 6.

Your 28 just wait to things start to swing the other way. Once you're over 35 then you can start running your mouth.
