I'm new & probably won't post much as I am not as OK with my situation as others. I've struggled all my life with my weight and now at 5'2" I struggle to stay at 200 - well, I just lost. I'm in a very appearance oriented field and 2 weeks ago at work I popped the button on my size 18s. I didn't even know I'd gotten fatter. I asked a co-worker if I looked like I had gained weight & she told me that with my body shape (HUGE belly & boobs) I would have to loose or gain a ton of weight for anyone to notice. I weighed myself at lunch (in the drugstore) saw I was 213, cried in the bathroom, then said screw it and have been eating anything and everything I want whenever for the past 2 weeks. My belly is so bloated I look like I'm going to have triplets. Other than it being so big it's making my chest hurt right now - I don't even care. I know I'll end up around 250-275 when my brain adjusts. By the way, when does the super stuffed super hard feeling go away and just become fat?
