My mom once led a very healthy lifestyle where she never ate any junk food and excercised constantly, and she was super skinny because of it. That was several years ago. Every year during the holiday season, she would always let back a little bit and gain a little bit of weight. Slightly noticeable, but she would always lose it with diet and excercise as soon as the new year hit. A few years back, I guess she didn't see the need to lose the weight or lacked the motivation, but it was definitely there. During that year, she would gradually put on a pound or two each month. Which didn't seem like much at first, but you could definitely tell around July that she was sporting a bit of a muffin top on her jeans that always fit her. Even though she had gained weight, she was still at a healthy weight and didn't seem to worry much. By the time holiday season came around once again, she had probably gained about 10 pounds (which was a lot for her at this time). She was a bit more conscious this year around all the sweets and goodies, but she still gained around 15 pounds over that year. Now, whenever we would go out, she would see a woman bigger than her and complain "I'm going to be bigger than her soon". Well, with her healthy eating habits and excercise routines gone, she was speaking the complete truth. It was at that point I realized that she was finally considered chubby, not necessarily overweight yet. That summer, she bought a two piece bathing suit that covered up all of her skin as if it were a one piece. It was really big on her (to the point where it was a little baggy). As the summer continued, we would go to the pool a lot and she would wear that bathing suit that was still too big, but she was staring to fill it out more. Every time we went she seemed a little chubbier. At this point she seemed like she was going to her favorite Mexican restaurant at least once a week (twice in one week was a special occasion), she was staring to get what I consider to be "fat" although on the low end of the fat scale. Her jeans got tighter and tighter as she would always stuff her face with large plates of greasy Mexican food. Another holiday season passed and she didn't hold back at all. Stuffing her face full of goodies and treats. Constantly going to the store to buy ingredients for new recipes she wanted to try. Her dessert is better than any I've ever tasted. She loves to bake all kinds of fatty dessert foods, and it was becoming very noticeable she loved eating them just as much as she was just fattening herself up. Once the break was over, I saw her getting ready for work and her work pants looked as if they were about to burst. I guess after wearing sweats and eating whatever for a month your clothes seem to "shrink". I can't even imagine the strain on her pants button once she sat down at her desk. It was not long before she bought a bigger pair of pants. Summer rolled around again (literally with a new fat roll). I wasn't surprised to see her fill out her swimsuit more, but even though it was a two piece it still covered her skin entirely. Once again, another fattening holiday season. However, this year I didn't really notice her gain, but she definitely gained quite a bit. I wouldn't notice until spring break while we were on vacation. I saw her in the same two piece swimsuit and she looked really fat. A reminder that this was a pretty big swimsuit that covered her in the summer prior. Once she took her cover up off when we got to the pool I couldn't believe my eyes. I saw the pants of the swimsuit getting pushed down by a huge gut that also pushed up the top of the swimsuit and exposed a large fat roll. I see her laying in the sun with her belly half hanging out like she doesn't even care that she's getting fat. I would notice her pull the top down back over her belly, but it wouldn't stay there for long, slowing creeping back up and exposing the big fat gut that she has. She would constantly order food and drinks and just stuff herself with fattening snacks like chips and cookies all day while just laying there. She got quite a few looks because her fat was poking out so much that it almost exposed her belly button. A few days of her stuffing herself later were laying by the pool again and you can tell at this point that she has gained weight in only a few days of being on vacation. Whenever she would try to pull her swimsuit top down over her belly, it wouldn't even cover it up like it had only a few days earlier. Even more people were looking at her, but it was kind of hot how she was getting fatter and fatter and didn't seem to care. I just wanted to stuff her face until all of the clothes she brought fit like her swimsuit. A few days after we got home, I saw her trying to work out for the first time in a while. You could definitely tell because her workout clothes were super tight. Her fat rolls were squishing up and making it near impossible for her to do sit ups. She could only do a few before she was out of breath. Needless to say, it was a very short and rather ineffective work out to say the least. All that really resulted from it was the realization to her that she had let herself get really fat and that if she wanting to change, she was going to have to make some drastic changes. I haven't seen her work out since and her eating habits don't seem to have changed either. Based on my judgement, the jeans she was wearing today do not have much longer if she keeps this up.
