You know you've been fat a long time when 425 feels skinny!

A year ago I was almost 500lbs and now 425 feels skinny, and I know it's not skinny and I know that's not a lot of weight to lose in comparison to what I need to lose. How weird is that? It sure didn't feel skinny on the way UP.

Thanks. I do want to keep losing. I want to get back down to any number as long as it starts with a 1. I was fine with the weight gain until I hit a wall and suddenly it wasn't ok or fun anymore. The body started hurting and I couldn't do the things I enjoyed anymore without serious struggle or pain. Activities became very limited. They still are but getting better each week. But today I was feeling skinnyyyy. Made me laugh.

Are you trying to gain more?

Real Me I'm not trying to gain but I am somewhat of a compulsive over eater and have times where I do gain.
Its my fault I know and I should lose weight but I love being big.
AmyJo you are so right about that LOL.

That's for sure! I can't believe the angst I had about being overweight and when I see pics from then I look really healthy and thin, not fat at all. If only there were do-overs.

You know you've been fat for a long time when you automatically look at the sturdiness of a chair to evaluate its ability to hold you up.

You would be surprised that some chairs are only rated for 250 lbs.
I'm sure they will handle more weight tho'.

Some chairs have a sticker on the bottom with that info and some have it on the box.
When I got my new office chair at work I tried to see the box but they were taking it out the door.
I couldn't find a sticker on the bottom so who knows.
It seems to be holding up oK but just has times where it squeaks a lot.
The springy thing that you can pump up still works so thats good.
I haven't totally killed it yet.

Living XM has an excellent line of chairs that list all of the important info on line. I got one of their out door collapsible chairs that I love and take it with me wherever I go.

Out door chairs I try to avoid LOL
I have one that folds up and fits in a bag like thingy I used it one summer and pretty much ripped the fabric from the eyelets.
Its still usable for someone who is small I would suppose but I'm not going to try it.

Could not agree more. I am amazed every time I look at an old photo and when I remember thinking I was fat 50 to 80 lbs. ago.

We purchased 2 a couple of years ago. I think it was from Living XM. We wanted to make sure that they were strong enough so, I ordered the 1,000 LB ones. When they arrived, my partner was REALLY, why two, we can both fit in one.
To be totally honest, they are really to big, super strong and to heavy to carry to a concert. We did take them to a couple of concerts, but "Chivalry was dead" they were too heavy for him to carry both.

You know you have been fat a long time when you gain 20 lbs and a friend asks if you lost weight.

Ohhh nooo!

Maybe you look more "even"? When I lose weight my top half gets smaller faster making my bottom half look bigger. I look more balanced the larger I am.
