Lol if you want to I guess. Now I'm getting to the point that my pants won't button and my belt will not clasp. Finding clothes has become almost impossible, or at least not stylish cloths and I'm not sure I can take that. I'd rather just run around 500+ lbs and naked!

I think we can all rest assured that Chicken Legs wouldn't mind. Plus, heck, take some footage of you trying to put those pants on and slap it on YouTube; you'd be surprised how many faves you'd get. I still remember back when Beer Belly Bear (now BeerHawg) had footage of him trying to put on some jean shorts that simply popped right open as soon as he took his hand off the button... very popular.

But yes, I envy you. Just the thought of being your size makes me need to adjust my pants. If I could, I'd take your unwanted weight in a heartbeat.

I was 500 lbs over the summer, but now I'm trying to lose weight so I can walk up stairs at my college without almost dying for ten minutes. I'm currently 480-490...

I know colleges and universities here are cheap compared to the US, for Canadian citizens....but I think for others the prices are quite a lot higher?

Don't get me wrong, would love to have you come north, just make sure you investigate carefully first!

Except there was a huge deal not too long ago about how the government will literally pay for your entire college/uni program if you're a recent immigrant. They give away free money to immigrants but not to their own citizens. I remember reading that when I was looking to take a college program again after failing twice before.

YEAH! CANADA!

I know a few american students at my uni in Van. They pay about double the tuition as I do, but it still works out to be cheaper than an american university.

And it's a better education as well since our professors aren't the product of the American school system!

Really? There's lots of recent immigrants paying 'full freight' at our college. I think this is some tiny program aimed at a very tightly targeted audience - probably some field like plumbing that Canada has a desperate labour shortage in - that an 'enterprising' journalist blew up into a 'headline'.

Short form - doubtful. Very doubtful. Probably just some xenophobe writing.

Tuition for most programs at our college here in Ottawa runs about $1500-$1700 per semester for Canadian residents. Foreign students pay that, plus another $4400 per semester in foreign student fees.

You have to remember that lots of American students don't pay retail. My kids are Canadian citizens so they'd pay regular Canadian tuition but with all the discounts American Universities offer (if you're a good student) it was cheaper for my two oldest to go to school in the USA. (I really do think its ironic that the State of Alabama paid for my son's undergrad degree).

Ok, right now I'm sitting at about 425 but have been up to around 470 before. Gonna ask a question and confess at the same time. When I was bigger, along with severe back issues, I had trouble cleaning myself after I went to the restroom. Ended up having to use the shower wand. Just wondering if you guys who are bigger have this problem, and how do you solve it?

Not trying to be humorous or repulsive, just an honest question.

Thanks.

The back issues are probably the cause of that. It helps to have a strong and flexible back.

I'm no where near those sizes, but I do recall seeing some of the larger women on the boards commiserating about those challenges. I seem to recall two solutions: getting a bidet attachment on your toilet (it washes you off), or the rather lower tech 'sponge on a stick.' Neither really sounds ideal though. If you do a board search for bidet or sponge you might find the posts discussing these things.

I think your onto something. Because I'm 6'4"ish and 6XL shirts still leave a good amount of belly showing with T shirts. Dress shirts tend to have the last button around where my belly button is. I can get 6XLT's sometimes but then the arms are all wrong. When I was at Casual Male 2 months ago the manager helping me said, "Its probably time you just get your shirts custom tailored." My other problem is while Button up dress shirts tend to cover my belly; sitting down the buttons pop off!

I'm not quite 500 and probably never will be. I thought I was close to 400 not long ago. I guess since I'm only like 5'11 I look a lot bigger. I ended up being a 360, now I'm at 340.

I'm pretty happy with my size though.

I was around 520lbs at one point. Started getting to the stage where it was affecting my back though, especially over walking longer distances and doing certain weightlifts. I didn't like being at the point where my mobility was being affected so lost a bit, think i'm around 470lbs now. 6'8" too though, so plenty of frame to spread it around :P
