Thin people living in fat bodies are miserable.

Fat people living in fat bodies are just as happy as anyone else.


It comes down to how you see yourself and who you want to be.

I was.  Me knees hurt, I couldn't do anything physical, even fucking was more difficult.

Link Posted: 7/3/2012 1:18:49 PM EDT
I can only tell you from my own personal experience my self confidence went up, people treated me better, I slept better, and I was just overall happier.  I can't imagine going back to my old self.

I'm 288.8 pounds. I'm a pretty happy guy but I was 344 pounds two months ago.

I wasn't miserable then either though. Shrug.

I was really shocked at how much better people treated me once I lost weight.  Women gave second glances and men give more respect.

Nope.

First of all, there is a lot of denial. For example the doctor would like me to be 150, but I like 210 better. Feels more natural.

Not fat, big boned, right?

I work in the retail world and swear every man sizes another guy up by "is there a chance this guy could kick my ass?" and then treats him accordingly.

Miserable no....unhappy...yes.

I've lost about 60 pounds so I'm going away from it.  I gained all my weight quickly in college and was very athletic prior to that so my experience may be different.  I can still run 8 minute miles, my gut just shakes while I do it.  

Some people eat their emotions, I eat when I'm bored....apparently I'm bored a lot.

I am 262 lbs as of this morning.  I'm just a hair under 6'5" though.  According to all of the tables, I'm obese.  I'm not miserable, but I am losing some weight and I feel better now than I did at 280.  I can't wait to see what about 225 feels like.

If it makes you feel any better, you've got cool .300 BLK stuff, and I don't.




That, and I am ugly as fuck, and I smell bad.

Happiness is a state of mind not a size of physical condition. It is a small mind that lets their size dictate how happy or sad they are. I am larger than I used to be but I am also banged up, cut up and broken in ways I did not used to be.I have started dropping weight again but I am not sad and and miserable. I was not 6 months or a year ago either. My big thing for me was coming to the understanding I can't just go exercise anymore like I used to. My body will not allow it. Its about life style and portion control as well as exercise.  


I am looking into buying a cycle as I hear they are easier and I do feel physically better after I exercise which puts anyone in a better mood. But again I stress being happy has nothing to do with size you are either happy with who you are or you are not.  If you are not then you will be miserable skinny person also.

For those that have been fat bodies and lost weight and see how shallow people really are and how you are treated different is really eye opening and crazy.  I'll never forget my first experience with that.......I couldn't stop thinking about it for a good while.
Link Posted: 7/3/2012 1:35:38 PM EDT
When I was at my fattest, I was miserable with my body, but not me as a person. It's hard to feel sexy in anything when your stomach looks like a purple spider web.


I'm much happier at my current weight. I can go to a store and I don't have to shop in the big girls section anymore. It's awful nice.

I used to hate it. When you try on 10 pairs of jeans and none of them can flatter the mess you've made... there is just no worse feeling.

I fucking love shopping nowadays. Everything fits, looks good, and I have to choose with items I can take home.

I was miserable, and after I lost a bunch of weight I realized just how miserable I was.
Feel twenty years younger and am never going back.

ETA: It wasn't a self esteem issue for me at all, I can take it.
         But being in your fifties and all of a sudden feelling like your in your thirties is hard to beat.

Im not. My wife and I watch Biggest Loser and laugh at all the fat crying people. Im fat because I eat too much and exercise  too little - not because my mom died/ my dad died/ someone touched my naughty bits.

It makes life so much better.

A friend of mine was riding with a girl the other day as I was jogging. The girl said wow look at that bulky dude running up the hill. As they passed me my friend recognized me and told her who I was.


It was a great feeling when I got the txt explaining that.

I lost almost 70 pounds since I saw them last going from 260-190 Somthing. Started lifting heavy and got back to 220. Currently cutting down so I can see the 6 pack ive wanted my entire life.

I've always been thin.  I was just born that way, and spent most of my life that way, then I got sick.  I lost 40 pounds and then put on 90.

I was 50 pounds over my normal weight, and it was miserable.  I looked like shit, felt like shit and was embarassed to be seen with less than a full compliment of clothes.  

Took me a year to drop all of that extra weight, and I'm still not quite back to feeling tip top.  It did give me a new outlook on some things.





Still, I threw out my fat guy pants.

I've met tons of fat happy people... I'm not sure how people that are that over weight can be happy with their bodies. It must just be a coping mechanism


I'd like to think I'm one of those "Skinny people, trapped in a fat persons body", I just haven't been able to kick myself in the ass hard enough to do anything about it... I have no delusions that if i dropped 80 pounds that I would feel better, and probably be happier in life. Just need to get my ass in gear.

6 foot 291.5 (weighed in at work with my pants and boots on and pockets full of shit), 42in. waist pants (enough room for conceal carry in there) and I wear XL shirts.

I was a fat baby, grew into a fat kid, and am now a fat man. Despite having grown up on a farm, wrestling and playing football through school and lifting weights for years after, I'm still fat. I don't know why so many skinny people think I should be unhappy about it. I'm healthy, never had any weight related medical issues. I guess the fact that it's not all fat helps, maybe. Just remember, the next time you're sizing me up, I can probably kick your ass. But lucky for you, I damn sure can't catch you.

You draw the hand you're dealt. Eff these arfcommers; because that out-run thing does not account for sense of urgency. Books and covers. Don't judge that way, you will not win.
