224, up three pounds in the past week from a mix of stress self-feeding and regular stress-eating :/ (not really my fave way to gain weight!)

Ha! Stumbled upon this looking for another post from a while back. I am a little over 250 now. I don't even know if I remember what 220 felt like...

Around 308lbs and I'm almost 5ft 7. I'm morbidly obese according to the BMI calculator. I'll have to manage my weight, since I know it's statisticaly impossible to lose weight. This also means starting my journey to body acceptance. Hmmff.

310 or thereabouts, according to my last doctor visit. I don't think I've ever been north of 300 before.

You can take the BMI calculator and toss it in the garbage where it belongs. If you want to get a better metric for how healthy you are, go get your BFP measured. On top of that make sure you monitor your blood pressure and other vitals. While I don't necessarily buy into the "healthy at any weight" narrative I firmly believe there are plenty of people who are "overweight" or "obese" and significantly more healthy than a lot of skinny/lean people.

Yes, I'm on the same page as you. I'll definitely check out my BFP. The doctors also love to attribute everything to weight.
Funny story: I (oddly) have severe anemia. I went to my doctor because I was mysteriously out of breathe, dizzy, and light headed when I walk. She thought it was due to lack of exercise, but I've been big my whole life, and the type of breathlessness I was experiencing felt different. It felt like my body was too weak to allow me to breathe, like I was lacking oxygen. So even when I did try to breathe heavily, it made no difference to the breathlessness. I couldn't even walk for more than a couple minutes without stopping.

Because she wouldn't look further into it, I had to do some research online. Said I have anemia. I bought some iron tablets, and these symptoms started to disappear within 1 weeks.

She finally agreed to do a blood test, and it showed up that my blood cell levels were almost half of what they should be. She also said I'm low in cholesterol, and that my blood pressure was at a normal level.
She suggested I eat more iron laden foods like red meats, and incorporate more salt into my diet.

Many thin people have the health problems I'm experiencing, and I'd say it's just as bad as the health problems that usually affect fat people.

I was going to change doctors because of this ordeal. Some doctors just don't seem care about fat people.
I could go in with an arrow sticking out of my eye and they'll find a way to attribute it to my weight, lol.

I've noticed that too. Lots of thin people experience awful health problems, but think, because they're thin, that they need to concern themselves less with their health. It's a tragedy.

Also, studies are consistently showing that the longest-lived people are not the thin ones, so there you go.

P.S.: I wish I could get up to 308. You're so lucky!

Haha. Thanks, dear!
I agree. I'm also seeing many thin folks getting health conditions usually designated as "obesity related".

I can somewhat attest to this. I'm pretty athletic, but I've had some injury issues in my left leg, specifically my knee and ankle. While I still function well, can go into the weight room and perform well, etc, am chronically sore or hurt outright. And lately it's been bad enough that it has kept me awake at night. I haven't slept well in over 3 weeks.

I recently started acupuncture and other chiropractic treatments. The doctors all had a couple shots at it and I think they made it worse. Hopefully this series of acupuncture treatments will bring it to a manageable level of pain/soreness.

Anyway I see where so many people say extra weight contributes to knee problems and maybe it does. But so does running 10-16 miles a day just about every day on rugged mountain trails! It was fun while it lasted but the bill for all of that activity has come due!

That sounds excruciating. I never knew running could trigger that.

It's all the impact. And in my case, a lot of my running I did in my eary-mid 20s when I was indestructible. Consequently I overdid it and probably didn't do enough preventive maintenance along the way.

Take care of your health! You don't have to slim down to 120 pounds to be healthy, and definitely don't have to be 120 to be smoking hot! But stay active, move, and eat right! I already said, I don't buy broad brush into "healthy at any weight" but I think there are a lot of people out there who are 300+ pounds who are or can be just as healthy as anyone else.
