That's why I call this place by that name, after all, if you oppose light and freedom, you must be a Dimmer. Some times I just want to write new lyrics to this song because the chorus says "You keep adding to my numbers as you shoot my people down!!!".

Sad that the obese are becoming a majority, but there probably never be a revolution...

Be kind to your own body. You shouldn't try to gain more than a pound or two a week. Don't load-up on fat's, carbs, or sodium, either. Take good care of yourself. Two pounds a week would mean a little over 4 years and that would give your body time to adjust. Eating a well-balanced diet is a win/win as that should keep the gain at a reasonable rate while giving your body ample nutrition to build muscle and strength to handle the increased weight. I'm 55 and where you are seeking to be, at about 420 lbs. I'm spirited, strong, and even my doctors say I'm remarkably healthy, despite even being diabetic.

Karen Carpenter died because she had been severely anorexic and the little weight she gained while recovering from anorexia caused her to die of heart disease, according to media accounts.

2) You obviously can't ask a doctor to examine you to determine if you can safely gain weight, so you might study up on the indicators such as BP, blood sugar, cholesterol, and others so you can at least make an informed decision for yourself.

3) The medical community will almost certainly never recognize that some people really want to be very heavy and will never seek to help us gain safely. We are pretty much an unknown science and are taking our health and lives in our own hands. Doctors and the medical establishment seem to have an acute shortage of common sense, so I think we can use common sense to our advantage, listen to our own bodies, and confound those short-sighted med people by being far healthier than they'll ever believe.

Wear sunscreen, while the rest of my meandering advice...

This stuff is only my opinion. Consult medical professionals.

I like it to read about your gain wish. It means a lot 2 lbs in a week and that 4 years. You must eat, eat, eat...

Please start a blog to write about your experience. I like it to read about your progression.

Take care and be wise, Rube. It would really rock for you to confound the naysayers, haters, attackers, and especially, the doctards by being as strong and healthy as possible at the end of those 4 years.

Go on. I'll read your blog...

I so want to rep you for starting this thread but apparently I haven't given enough others a chance to GAIN rep from me!! LOL!

Speaking of gaining, I've had so much fun gaining over the last 8 months and at first it wasn't actually intentional. I had moved to a new country and the host family I was with saw that I had some weight on me so they insisted I had more food and so my eating habits actually changed. When I returned to Australia, I naturally went for bigger amounts of food.

Beautifully expressed, and it's what I used to tell my MY hunny! She was giving me more of her to love! (and did I ever show her how much I appreciated her. .woo hoo)


I need to get this "rep" thing down so I can share the love. . As a rule I'm pretty "tech savvy" but there are days, I am surprised how difficult simple things can be. . lol

Now as a parting comment, I've been a member of the "size acceptance" community for decades. .(yeah I'm old) I'm talking the old "fat and gaining" or "BBW and SSBBW" threads on Internet Relay Chat. . I truly believe this is a subject that should be discussed openly among those with an interest in it. I have many thoughts on the subject but not enough time right now. . but I am very glad to see this thread. .kudos

Congestive heart failure, when caused by an obesity thickened heart muscle, as far as the new info I've seen and I can figure, can not be reversed. The extent of damage probably depends on how heavy a person has been and for how long. I quit.

Thanks for kind words. Be careful everybody. Avoid being where I am.

It looks like it's this way. The heart muscle thickens from the strain of pumping blood through the extra 200,000 miles of blood vessels in each pound of extra fat. The volume of blood pumped with each beat decreases as the muscle thickens. The heart gradually loses the ability to keep the body oxygenated. That includes the heart muscle. In end stage CHF shortness of breath becomes severe, even to the point of being out of breath while at rest. Arrhythmia sets in and the heart suddenly stops. CHF cannot be cured or reversed unless it's caused by an infection, for instance, but not when it's caused by an over-sized, overworked heart muscle. Shortness of breath sets in incrementally. I have been in CHF at least a few years, I know at the very least, since late 2009. I got shorter of breath a little more each year as I gained weight throughout my entire adult life. I'm nearly to the point of being out of breath at rest. My heartbeat does not feel steady. I'd love for it to just be stress. I pray for God's Mercy on me and long for His Grace. I pray for all of us.

Do not end up like me.
