Has anyone else had a episode like this? A small, unexpected thing that makes your realize you're not the same size you thought you were?

I know I've put on weight since New Years. I've been ill more than usual (small stuff, like flus and colds), which just makes me want to eat. An injury limited my mobility for awhile, too, which didn't help. At any rate, since the last time I was weighed (October), I've put on something like 40 lbs, I'm almost up to 350 now. By far the heaviest I've ever been...

So it shouldn't be surprising that I feel fatter, because, well, I am! But the extra padding on my belly, the added thickness to my thighs, even the little more chub in my face, seems to take me by surprise on a daily basis.

What seems really odd to me is how this little amount of extra padding is so noticable to me now, moreso in some ways than the almost 150 lbs I'd gained prior. Because I gained that weight so gradually over several years (almost a decade, which makes me feel very old! ) it didn't seem to make the same impact.

Just wondering if the rest of you have felt something similar?

Like it to read all this honest experience about gaining weight. Sure, I think also an Expansion of 40 lbs means a lot. So I am not surprised about your surprise. I am also surprised about 40 lbs in 6 months!

I think also your body feels also softer. Also to play with your new rolls and rounder belly. Are you the only one how notice your gain? Or do other people also see your fuller curves. My experience is that people does have more trouble to see a difference between 300 en 350 lbs then between 200 and 250 lbs.

I hope you'll enjoy your new fat body!
