    We purchased 2 a couple of years ago. I think it was from Living XM. We wanted to make sure that they were strong enough so, I ordered the 1,000 LB ones. When they arrived, my partner was REALLY, why two, we can both fit in one.
    To be totally honest, they are really to big, super strong and to heavy to carry to a concert. We did take them to a couple of concerts, but "Chivalry was dead" they were too heavy for him to carry both. :doh:

    You know you have been fat a long time when you gain 20 lbs and a friend asks if you lost weight.
    Seriously that happened to me today LOLOL.

    Ohhh nooo!

    Maybe you look more "even"? When I lose weight my top half gets smaller faster making my bottom half look bigger. I look more balanced the larger I am.

    You know you've been fat a long time when you dont even notice your stretch marks anymore.

    I'm not sure what she was thinking LOL
    I have gotten so big around the middle I don't see how she thinks I lost weight.
    Maybe with my belly getting bigger I don't look as wide.
    I think your balance theory makes sense.

    Weight and your frame just seem to change as you get older. I think I look skinnier than I did when I was in fact was lighter since working out some.
    I am definitely bigger on my top half the past year or so. I should update my photo to show the change I guess.

    I think you know you've been fat for a long time when... you walk on a floor you've never walked on before, and you sort of test it before taking a full step. (I prefer to error towards being cautious - I have broken through some wood flooring a couple of times!) :doh:

    Yes!

    That reminds me of the time I went to look at a house for rent... the owner had installed beautiful laminate wood floor (like Pergo) and as I followed him through the house the poor floors creaked and groaned under my feet but made no sounds under his. I had to keep talking to distract him because a couple times he gave a puzzled look at the floor. I didn't rent the house because I was afraid I would break the floor!

    My bother is a big guy and he had just closed on his house and went to do a walk thru. He was walking out to the deck when he went thru the wooden floor. He came to visit about a week after and both his legs were all bruised and badly scratched and full of cuts and he was in lots of pain. (it does happen)
    I asked him :doh: How did you stop? he game this look.... and said really... with my balls.

    Close to 425!? I've seen you on these boards for a long time--I had no idea. From time to time you've posted pictures and didn't look even close to 425!

    I would guess those pics were from years back and I wasn't as heavy as I am now.
    The past year or so my weight has shot up quite a bit and I'm sure I have mentioned that, perhaps you missed that.

    OMG! That's a horrible thing to happen, but I couldn't help but laugh at his reply lol!
    I broke a step on the deck at my aunt's house a few years back, they were old and probably a little rotten. I didn't fall through it, but I skinned my shin really bad on the next step up:( I always walk to the outside on steps now lol!

    I giggled at his answer Diana but that must have been awful.
    AmyJo that sounded painful too.
    Luckily I have only broken one wooden chair and several folding lawn chairs.
    Going thru a floor OMG !!

    I don't read through or participate in the boards as I used to, so you're probably right. It seems to me that you had lost a lot of weight--maybe when you took the picture for your avatar--and would go up a little and down a little. Oh, the sands of time!

    I did have calcium build up in both ankles that I had to have surgery on so yes I did have to lose weight before they would operate because at 375+ I would have a hard time with rehab having to put that much weight on a healing ankle.
    They did each ankle one at a time so I could heal properly.
    That was several years ago and I have gained all the weight back plus some.
    Yes my avatar pic is an older one.

    You know, it's funny. Every so often, I'll be out and about; doing some shopping or going for a walk, or getting gas (these days it's usually when I'm grocery shopping,) and I'll see a woman whose size and shape just floor me. In some cases, it'll be so much more extreme, because they'll be moving a certain way, or standing a certain way, or doing a certain thing that further accentuates their features, and even if I know nothing about them, I get this instant image in my mind; not necessarily of them, but of all the best things in the overall experience of the moment. It can be a simple thing for them; just walking from one place to another, and yet, for me, it can be life-changing, and I'll remember the sighting forever.

    A big example of this was a short nature walk in Maine, where I spotted one SSBHM and two SSBBWs with a little girl who was probably related to them. I could go into more detail, but they were doing that walk that some fat women do, where they swing their arms a little as they move. That's always charming. Anyway, I smiled and waved hi. I don't know if they even noticed me, and I've certainly never seen them again, but I'll tell you something. Ever since then, I never go to Maine without visiting that trail, and taking a look over the bridge and path where the experience took place.

    Don't underestimate the effect you can have on people, just by being there. That's all I'm really saying.

    Aside from breaking chairs, have you ever had a lawn chair or metal folding chair sink into the grass as you were sitting on it? It's happened to me enough, that I won't sit on them anymore. :p:blush:
