Re: Lets talk obesity
I used to be "obese". I use quotes because I hated, and still hate the term "obese". If anything, just use the term "overweight".
Either way, I graduated at age 17 close to 350lbs. Yeah. Shortly after graduating, I said fuck it. I'm sick of feeling like shit all the time. So, I cut out soda, fast food and pretty much anything else I thought was contributing to me gaining weight. About 2 years later, I hit my lowest of 170. But, I had pretty much no muscle and had no energy anymore. About a year and a half after hitting my lowest and after getting a pretty physical job, I'm up to about 210, which I feel is mostly muscle due to the constant heavy lifting at work. And at a little over 6 feet tall, I feel I'm finally at a stable, healthy weight. I go to the gym fairly often, I still don't drink soda and fast food is a rare occasion. Sure, I could cut out the occasional pig out day and the probable too occasional energy drink, but hey. I feel good.
As for how I feel for others with weight problems? I know where they are, I know what it's like. But, I also know that with enough willpower and a solid plan, you can change it.
