I agree, low impact like swimming, water aerobics and biking are awesome. Biking might be kinda difficult, but pools are awesome for CV at any size.

However, it is very difficult to argue that gaining 100 lbs in a short time is a good thing to do to your body, even for a neophyte gainer like myself. ;-)
Just you need to keep up at the gym with the gain.. from what I see people who started out in the thin category, and put on weight later, have it much harder in the physical part.

doing lots of low impact, I've taken off a little too much last year, double of what's healty but that was mainly due to not being able to eat at all for days at a time.. now I've stopped loosing.. but.. I'm starting to sink better while swimimng so I know where the weight is comming from..

Bicycles.. that's another one.. I mean we're bombarded with the get healthy thing endlessly.. yet.. I can't find a bike that can hold <250lbs

Hey

A Trek hybrid would do the trick. I should have kept my old one in shape (not in the cold wet garage), their prices are now ridiculous!!!

Where are you, PolarKat? "Location: Under 3 Meters of Snow.." suggests Canada. EdX and I are both in Ottawa, and finding a Trek or other bike that will take 250+ pounds is no problem around here - lots of bike shops. Maybe you should plan a trip to the national capital?? But I feel sure there are lots of bike shops elsewhere that can help you too.

This time of the year, it's the gear for skiers that is out. Does my sense of self good to see more and more shops with ski pants and ski jackets in XXL, XXXL, etc.....

It's not very pleasant thing to say but, hey, at least i'm honest. I'm ALL about looks. I just hope he never loses weight, then it won't be an issue...
Ugh. Seriously, I love how people freak the hell out at honesty.

But I think it's excellent that you're honest. If you're true to yourself and vocal about it from the beginning, then the relationship isn't compromised.

Thanks to Velia bumping this thread, I noticed this post by fat hiker.

I just want to add, along the same line, that Mountain Equipment Coop now has bike shorts in XXL. On me they are almost loose, and I wear a 42" waist pants. I'm sure a 44" would have a perfect fit, and I suspect a 46" would be OK. Not sure about 48", but might even be worthr trying on. One of the types they have is a bike short liner, basically shorter, thinner, bike shorts that you wear under regular shorts. Gives the padding and protection from chafing, but let's you cover up if you aren't comfortable going out in spandex.

So yah, it is getting easier for big folk to exercise!

Along the same lines, I had gone to a local bicycle shop, and I talked to the owner, we went through the catalog, and a few calls to distributors and found that 330lbs was the heaviest capacity of bike that exists, and the price tag was aroung $600-800CDN above 330lb there's only tricycles and they start around $1000

Now that we have a health board here, would this thread be a candidate for relocation to the health board? Just curious.

But he's been told that some more fat may lead to a risk of not being able to walk.
She cares about him. So she doesn't know what to think, in what to believe, what to consider a priority, if to attempt to deny her desires, how to do her best and what would actually be that best.
She feels like standing in the middle of a crossroad, blind, without a map, having no idea of where to go and how to get there.
I only know FA, what is FFA? any one can answer me?

This story doesn't ring true - either the man in the couple has other serious health issues, or someone has fallen for the false idea that you lose mobility with only a few extra pounds. If he's an 'almost-BHM' then he is hundreds of pounds short of the point where he may risk 'not being able to walk' unless he already has other, very serious, health troubles. 400, 500, even 700 pounds is not an impediment to walking for most men, as long as the pounds have packed on in a normal fashion.
