Depends on how tall the person is....someone who's 5'1 is more likely going to be immobile at 550-600 pounds whereas someone who's 6'1 may have to be over 750 pounds.

Besides height it also depends on genetics, lifestyle, fitness, health and age.

If one is predisposed to be fat and have gained over a long period of time, then s/he is more likely to be able to cope with that opposed to someone who has intentionally gained a huge amount in a relatively short period, especially if they did it through deliberately eating junk food and avoiding exercise. People are also less likely to be able to handle the same weight when they gets older, even if they had no problems with it in their youth. This is especially true if said person has health issues that developed or worsened. One being confined to bed rest due to infections can drastically impact their mobility - boredom and frustration often causes eating, lack of movement causes weight gain and muscle atrophy.

I'm 6ft tall, and last year too many business trips and too many restaurant meals made my weight top 500lb. I began to have some minor mobility problems. Nothing major, but I certainly noticed the extra effort. Since then my eating habits returned to normal and I'm back to my stable weight of 450lb - 455lb and my mobility is pretty good again. It's amazing what a difference that extra 50lb or so made.

I'd need to consider the age factor too because I'm 52 years old. But based on how my mobility began to change after my moderate weight gain last year, 600lb or so might immobilize me. I'd rather not find out though.

I've known some who were quite immobile, though almost skeletal in appearance. Of course, it's pretty hard to crawl out of a coffin.

That's true. Come to think of it, a few people in my department hardly budge unless I practically light fires under them.

Thank you for saying this, Cors. I didn't want to answer OP's question because ... well. Because.

There is no weight/height correlation. It's not that simple. I had mobility problems at 5'6" and 296 pounds. My range of movement was already limited at that point. Many people here wouldn't even consider that particular weight, at my height, to be anything close to SSBBW territory. There is no easy formula, as some of the answers here seem to imply. It's a game of Russian Roulette. That's the truth. It's not an easy truth, but it is the truth. Some people can be very mobile, very active, very healthy at very high weights. Some people cannot. Age, genetics, level of activity all play a role. And some things cannot be anticipated. I've worked with people who were very healthy and active, and then sustained an injury that led to temporary -- and then permanent -- immobility. An injury that you or I would likely heal from with no significant problems, such as a broken ankle or simple leg fracture resulting from a fall.

I was trying to remember where I'd heard the name Humber before, then it struck me.

This is being directed to Mr. Njorl, who is bandaged and immobile. No wonder!

Course we all know the kind of immobility people get off on is the obesity related, although I'm sure there are those with a broken bone fetish because that's just how life is.

Wow. Your summarization skills really need some work, Junior.

Ditto on the interpersonal.

That varies from person to person. I know people who are larger than I am who get around much better. It does depend mosly on genetics. If you're asking for the law of averages, from what I've noticed being around the community things start to really catch up with people somewhere around the 400 - 450 mark. That number tends to mark a milestone for a lot of people mobility wise.
