how does it feel to be obese?3 months

I am about 320-325 and being this big is fun for me
Every step I take everything jiggles
I personally don't have any health issues
But I do get short of breath when I'm walking and talking at the same time.
I like looking down when I'm driving and seeing my giant belly almost touching the steering wheel and sometimes after a meal it actually touching the wheel.
I like having something to jiggle and play with and squish and squeeze while I'm laying in bed.

Sounds amazing! it's reassuring to hear that even at that size you don't have health issues, i mean we're all different so i know i might still develop some health issiues, but there is only one way to find that out hehe! i'll have to double down on all that junk food! I'd love to have a big belly to play with, sounds quite nice! smiley

It's a really interesting journey getting fatter. I was in the 270s weight range for most of my adult life until I decided to gain, now I've just hit 375 today. Here's a few of the changes that I noticed with my body as my weight went up [also for reference, I'm 5' 9"]:

*300: No noticeable difference from the 270s honestly.
*315-320: This is when I first started to feel legitimately fat. My belly got quite a bit bigger and heavier, and I started to feel a little slower moving than I was before.
*340: Belly and hips got even bigger. Getting up from any sort of sitting or prone position started to become a bit of a struggle. Started bumping into objects a lot more as my mind had yet to adjust to my larger body.
*350: This is the point where I can say I definitively started to feel capital F fat. All of the previous effects got amplified, and trying to reach my feet to put on socks or shoes has begun to be a comical struggle.
*375: I feel kind of silly that I felt so fat at 350, because 375 is even worse in that regard. All the previous effects are even more amplified. I feel very heavy and slow and am always very aware of my size because I no longer fit in "normal" spaces (for example, my belly now rests against the steering wheel in my car). I also get winded very easily now, and can no longer reach certain areas of my body.

It's a pretty surreal experience for me to be so big. I can still remember how much easier it used to be to move and bend, and being so slow and unwieldy is a constant reminder of how much bigger I've gotten over the past year.

I'm 280, but I'm also 6'5" so I'm probably "thinner" than you're thinking. I don't really feel that different other than comfortable in my own skin, although my tolerance for heat is even worse than before (and that really sucks, living in Florida). And no, I don't have any health problems.

I would agree with ThirteentailsGetsFat's experience. Somehow life goes on in a fairly similar way even if you are morbidly obese. The real changes started when I hit 320 pounds and became greater the more weight I put on after that. I can honestly say that being super obese affects just about everything. It prescribes what I can do physically. Nearly everything is an effort: washing, dressing, getting about, how I am viewed by the world, what positions are comfortable when I sit or lie down. There are limits to how far I can walk. How many steps I can climb. What seat I can fit into. What clothes are available.. There are health issues that go with it too. It is unavaoidable: skin infections, sweating, joint pains, sleep apnea and high blood sugar so type 2 diabetes is a prospect.

Having been slim (170lbs) and now obese (290lbs),I think I can answer this.
Pick up a 1lb bag of say sugar.Feel it in your hand.Now imagine 120 of those filled into a fat suit and the fat suit fitted to you.
But,it's not that dramatic, as weight goes con over a period of time,so your body adjusts.It's like being in a bath and slowly adding more hot water as opposed to the shock of plunging into a very hot bath.
How it feels when you get there is exhausting.You can't walk anything like as fast as a non obese person or as far.Imagine not being able to run,only walking like half a mile slowly and then having to stop and sit to rest,back aching,panting for air and sweating even in cool weather.Imagine not being able to reach down to put socks on/cut toenails.Imagine everything being hard work and taking longer.
Not everyone is affected the same,but we all have those vthings to some extent.
As for health problems,I have high blood pressure,cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.Doesn't affect how I feel day to day.But imagine a life where you have to go to the doctor regularly and take medication daily for the rest of your life.With illnesses,not everyone gets all of them (I have no joint pain or sleep appear...yet at least) and some clearly have more of an effect on everyday life than others.
I hope that gives you an idea.Be prepared for A LOT of sweating!lol
