The nice thing about noticing "Wow, I got fat!" is that you go through the experience over and over again as you get fat. It happens for me every time that I find that I can't fit somewhere and every time that I have to buy a bigger shirt, bigger pants, bigger underpants, bigger belt, etc.

Discovering the following things:
- bumping with my belly into things because it reaches further in front of me than I am used to
- being unable to pick things from the floor because I can't bend over
- having to adjust my balance because of the weight of my belly
- all my shirts have been shrinking lately
- my arms are touching the sides of my belly when I am doing my belt and the zipper of my pants
- having to give up socks and shoes with laces because I can't bend over to put them on
- having to wear my shirts unbuttoned because of my belly
- being unable to reach close enough to my meals on the table because of my belly
- having to adjust my car seat

A month's worth of progress:

Due to childhood malnutrition, I was always very skinny. I was about 35 odd pounds at seven years old, to give an example. When I started high school I was about 105. When I left home, I was probably 120 or less--didn't weigh myself, but I think it was less.

I lived under conditions of privation for a while. Finally, around 2006, I made it all the weigh (ha ha) to 160. An extremely unaccustomed weight for me.

Now, in 2020, I'm probably about 200. Almost a 100 pound gain in 20 years. I know it took a while, but I got there. I have a tummy now. I'ts still rather small but it makes putting on shoes and socks a little difficult. My legs spread involuntarily when I sit down. I still wear about a thirty-six inch waste but it's a bit tight. I can feel my belly touch my thigh when I lean over a bit. I wear a 2x shirt, when I used to be able to wear child sizes even as a twenty-year-old lol. What a difference.

That was probably the "ah-ha, i'm chubby" moment. When I had to get a 2x shirt for the first time in my life.

When I got a fatpad that started to resemble the front end of a 1976 VW Beetle.
