accepting yourself as a fat person3 years

Its a great epiphany! Im no longer "getting fat" I AM fat. And Im really starting to FEEL fat. Im slower I noticed, and I feel pretty heavy. Its harder for me to run than it was a six months ago. I mean- I CAN run, but my gut slaps up and down when I do and I get winded pretty fast. A few years ago I decided that instead of counting calories to gain weight Id just "eat like a fat person would". For awhile it took conscious effort but now its hard NOT to overeat.

I agree that there is a difference between realizing that you are fat and accepting or being emboldened by a fat lifestyle. I would think the true epiphany comes when you are able to live the lifestyle you choose without needing approval of others. This site is helping to raise the awareness that it's entirely possible to be fat, happy and healthy. There are a lot of people making a lot of money by spreading the myth that it is not. Enjoy your new lifestyle!

Well, I actually have a different side. I tried to loose weight once I couldn't accept myself as a skinny person!

Because of problems with my foot I lost 50lbs to try and take pressure off of it, it didn't work. I was 30lbs away from being my "ideal" weight and it just felt weird. I didn't like it at all, it felt like I had chopped off an arm or something.

So I happily return to eating whatever I damn well pleased and my body plumed back to where it was. I now feel complete again.

I never 'accepted my self as a fat person', I am a fat person through and through. Skinny makes me feel weird, cold, and lonely inside. No thanks!

jrm:
Even though I am now over 300 lbs, I must admit until very recently I saw this as a temporary state. I had always thought that I would reach a point and say "ok fun's over" and diet and exercise down to what I believed a more normal weight.


Me too! I've always been on the curvy/chunky side and for most of my adult life I was a small BBW in the low 200-220 lbs range. Then a medication made me lose a bunch of weight, and I simply could not accept myself as a smaller person. Part of that was why I started to gain a little more than 2 years ago.

Flash forward to now and nearly 120lbs fatter. I'm solidly over 300lbs and my body and appetite have both undergone major changes. I'm only full if I'm stuffed, I order fast food for imaginary people (me) all the time, and the thought of getting even fatter still turns me on like nothing else, despite having blown past my original goal 40 lbs ago. My belly has grown disproportionately since then, resulting in a bulging spare tyre so big and jiggly that it wobbles to it's own separate rhythm when I walk. If it sounds like I'm getting a little poetic, it's because I'm in love.

With that, it's starting to dawn on me that maybe I'm not just popping up to 300 for a quick visit, and 300 may not be the fattest I get... I'm only planning on another 10 lbs, but I've been saying that every 10 lbs since 260! What's funny is that I had a very well developed and comfortable identity as a fat person, but that's not the same as being a very fat person (although it did mean I'd made peace with my body and society long ago). It's obviously not as dramatic a change as someone going from actually thin to fat would experience, but it' seen significant for me!

I will say that I feel more at ease with other fat people, but for me it's mostly about adjusting to the changes. I'm much slower now, especially if I've recently put on a few and my muscles aren't used to it yet! For some reason new weight makes my lower back ache like crazy if I have to walk any real distance without stopping for a break, so I'm getting used to planning them in. Same thing with my commute time- I now count the walk from the car to wherever. I'm making an effort to learn how to dress in a way that I feel looks cute and accommodates my belly comfortably, because now it's this big soft but unyielding thing that sort of demands to be dealt with in all sorts of ways. I travel with an extender, and if I get much bigger I'm going to have to get one for my car. I'm somewhere between disbelief and taking these milestones in stride.

The thought of fully giving in to life as a 300-something pounder is more exciting than it is worrying, so I guess I'm on my way! Acceptance certainly feels a lot more likely than a diet smiley

If I had a dollar for every time I have tried to gain weight lol!

Anyway,
Im convinced that this year will be the year I finally pack on the pounds. Im newly single -going to make sure the new one is at least a FA dangit lol- and I am enjoying the heck out of stocking up and consuming gainer treats (like I did yesterday) . Whether it be pizza, heavy cream, cheesecake...etc. I dont have to conceal or be self conscious of how thrilled I am to gain now. A new year, a new me smiley

My experience was just like Lil Rascal's above. I really began thinking of myself as a fat person once I crossed 250 lbs. And as I continued to gain I found myself more and more turned on by the thought of becoming ever fatter. Starting to wear 2 XL and 3XL clothes really confirmed for me that I am truly a fat guy and there was no going back. Crossing 300 lbs. was another major achievement which reinforced that I will live my life as a huge fatty and enjoy every minute of it, eating whatever I want, not worrying about what others may think, and embracing my now huge belly, large moobs and double chin.

I've got to admit I don't really see myself as fat even though I'm close to 330lb. When I get dressed in the morning I still look in the mirror and think I'm not that big. I guess I have a warped sense of size!

I first was fat at age 15 at 165 pounds went on a diet and lost 40 pounds. For years I wold go back on a diet as soon as I hit 140 even got down to 120. By my 30's I would let my self go back up to 165 or so and diet back to 140. When I was turning 40 I figured It was time to get the weight off for good I had hit 173 pounds went on a diet and got back to 125 pounds. For 3 years I would go on a diet as soon as I gained 5 pounds. Being on a diet all the time sucked so I gave up and 2 years later I was 196 pounds. Upon seeing my reflexion in a store window I was mortified at the size of my belly, I looked 9 months pregnant with twins. I bought as ale and weighed my self saw the num we and went on a crash diet I got back down to 130 pounds but with in 3 years I was bac up to 175 pounds, I went on yet another diet got down to 150 and with in 6 months I was back at 175. That was it I faced the fact I am a fat person and will always be fat. Last year at this time I was at 220 but that was just too big for me. My belly was too heavy to carry around at that size I lost 30 pounds but of course I have gained back 10. So the. bottom line is I know I am fat and will always be fat,

Let the yo-yo go smiley My gf has
been heavy much of her life and her confidence just continues to turn me on. She hasn't seen anything south of 200 pounds since her early 20s. Now at about 310/320, her triple-Ds and soft double belly is quite the erogenous zone where my hands are concerned smiley

I have never been fat until a few years ago, I read that actually being fit and fat is much healthier then being thin. I decided to become fit and fat. I did some research and the real key is to gain the weight go very slowly, do not rush it. If you rush becoming fat you will lose the weight, it becomes like a YO YO. What happens by going slow you learn to just accept yourself as being a fat person and being fat is just who are and you always will be from now on. The other concern I had I happen to like a certain shape of my belly, I was little concerned on how to mold and shape my belly the way I wanted. What I discovered that to mold and shape my belly the way I wanted I should be in a vintage girdle like Rago 6210 girdle. To my pleasant surprise as I gained the weight the girdle help to mold shape my body exactly the way I needed my belly. A girdle gives my now fat belly the needed control and support and I can remain nice and fat and I found to my pleasant surprise I really love being a fat person, it wasn't anything like I thought. I do on the other exercise daily, I found that being fit and fat plus wearing a decent vintage girdle you really do feel great, and you look great, do not knock a vintage girdle until you try it you will be very pleasantly surprised. I have no intent of being obese or ever loosing the weight, just nice and fat.
