Ok, I'll play for the low end. To gain 50 pounds from a starting point of 120 feels....weird. It isn't something you notice right away, but then fairly soon your clothes are wrong and you move differently. It changes the way your body moves.Curious to hear from all ranges; whats it like for someone 120lbs and is it even noticable for someone 400lb?
Yessss. There's a shift, and a shift in strength, too, especially in the upper body.Ok, I'll play for the low end. To gain 50 pounds from a starting point of 120 feels....weird.

It's a change of your own perception of the space you occupy. Things start to seem smaller around you.
Too fat? I'm not sure I understand the meaning of that phrase?I gained 53 pounds during the past year because I did not have time go to the gym. Maybe
a partial reason a doctor, who encouraged me to gain some weight because I was very skinny. The starting point was 93lbs so it felt strange to fill out at first but finally
I could not control my increasing apetite and weightgain. Now I am trying to diet although it seems to be difficult. Do you think that I am too fat if my height is only 5´2 and current weight 154lbs?
Hi all,I am 5'5". I weighed 157 last November and began project to gain 50 lbs as quick as possible. Now weigh 177. I've outgrown 34" waist pants and now wear 36" waist pants. My upper inner thighs touch the first 3-4 inches, preventing legs from going together as they used to. I am gaining weight on my chest, most noticable in armpit area where I feel some friction and unusual touching sensation. My belly feels taunt and has increased from 35" to 39". When lying on back the belly can be jiggled a bit. Likewise for the chest area to the side of each breast. It appears that there is a weight growth that extends under the armpits toward the back. Love handles are faintly beginning to show. On of my kids remarked that "your belly has really got big." No adults have mentioned the weight gain. I didn't realize how hard it was to gain fast. I eat a lot of heavy cream mixed in coffee and soups. Also eat a lot of sweets, such as donuts and ice cream. I can't imagine what another 30 lbs will feel like.
Welcome, Genie! I hope we'll see more posts from you--feel free to check out all the boards and jump in where you see something interesting.Hi all,
I'm new to posting here,
Hi Genie,Hi all,
I have gained only about 35 pounds, but I wonder whether I want to be able to answer your question in a few months, as to what it feels like to gain 50 pounds. I weighed myself today and saw I'd gained two pounds in the past week, without trying and with exercising three times per week! (This is both really scary and really exciting). If I quit trying to eat sensibly, maybe I'll really be able to answer your question in two or three weeks!
