I'm so super-pumped that I only have 14 pounds to gain before I officially enter the obese category with a BMI of 30! Given my track record of having gained almost 60 pounds in the past 10 years without even trying to gain, I should be there by the time I graduate even if I don't make any efforts to grow on purpose. Was wondering if any of you remember reaching this milestone and have any thoughts to share.

I've been obese for about 15 years, lol, because I've always had a bit appetite. It's not all it's cracked up to be. I didn't really enjoy it until I got past the obese stage. Morbidly obese and super obese are more enjoyable categories to be in because the extra size really makes a big difference.

I too got incredibly excited when I passed the morbidly obese or super obese category with a BMI of 40 or more. Another exciting point for me happened when I weighed myself at my sister-in-laws and the scale jumped well past 300 lbs. for the first time. I couldn't believe it at first that I actually reached 300. It was positive affirmation that I am really fat. Just being able to say to people I am over 300 lbs. really turned me on. And to have my female doctor gently scold me for reaching 300 was a bit of a turn on as well.:)

I would say certain things you will always remember like when you reach a certain weight or get told your BMI is too high at the Dr's office.
The time when you are officially the "fattest"among your friends.
When I was an active gainer the point where I passed 200 lbs was pretty special.
Passing 300 was amazing too because I wasn't trying to gain.
There will always be milestones.

I'm with Chubbynate on this one, haha. When I hit 300 lbs, I was like "is this it? I can still see my feet if you lean a little."

I guess, especially as an average-height man with a bit of muscle, 300 lbs isn't all that big. My belly only sags like a little. Mainstream media led me to believe I'd be like a jiggling tub of lard at 300, but I was just cuddly, instead.

I think there's definitely some truth to that, though having nice, cuddly arms and a soft belly are certainly psychological buoys for me.

I am constantly wrestling with insecurity on this score, and fearing that I may have lost, or may be about to lose weight. I've seen the occasional person like you describe. A teacher here, a high school student there, a manager, a coworker, etc, and they're just so glamorous at those higher extremes, and I desperately want what they have, but I'm unable to reach their level.

For such people, with such an incredible gift, to treat it so disdainfully... It makes me want to cry at times. Great fatness is a magnificent gift; something that many can't achieve on their own, and which would be a godsend if it could be shared. Yet, the lack of appreciation for this magnificent gift by those who possess it is palpable. It's almost maddening.

Congrats!!! That’s awesome! I’m currently 135 and my goal is to eventually hit 400lbs. But I started at 103lbs and I’m getting so excited!!

Do you use "obese" to describe yourself?
I rarely use the word obese to describe myself. I like saying "I am too fat..." for something or admitting I am a fat guy. Or I will jokingly describe my body type as "voluptuous" to women who fully understand what that means.:)

I'm the same way. I don't normally even think of that word. Fat is so much easier :p

So cool...I remember when my waist passed 40, even when sucked in as far as i could get it, then letting it out and measuring...OMG, 44 inches. (It was 30 inches when i graduated high school!) :)

Also, once upon a time, waist and chest measurements were 30 and 38. Chest actually went down to 37 while waist ballooned to 40 and beyond. Wheeee! :)
