>>25706670 I had to move away from my home town in my early teens which was really hard on me, that in addition to the usual hormones and shit I developed marlon brando tier eating habits that never really went away
Usually, it happens in your youth, too. Because you have pleb-tier parents who buy fast food all the time, or don't know how to cook healthy and ascribe to outdated poor people philosophies like "OH MY GOD MY BABY IS SO SKINNY YOU NEED TO EAT MORE"
If you gain 5 lbs in a year more than you should past age 5, you'll be 60 lbs overweight at 20. And it just keeps getting WORSE.
For me it was a combination of parents, some abusive baby sitter that literally told me to continuously eat hot dogs and recorded videos for fun, basically like stuffing a pig, then using food as emotional escape, grandmother and mother insisting that I eat despite being fat, then came the mental problems, bipolar diagnosis, then came me losing 50+ pounds, and regaining it slowly, and now I'm at 320 pounds and realize what happened. I'm just an autistic bipolar fuck who isn't accountable for anything and didn't grow up, its my own fault and I knowingly went down this path.
The only solution to "obesity" is a proper support structure, or enough emotional distress that tips you over the edge. Support structure meaning that you have a stable life, can buy the right foods, and are accountable.
>tfw no feedee gf to fatten to immobility I brought up the idea to my gf (pic related) last night after intercourse, and she refused. Oh well, it certainly would be harder to fight denizens w/ a rotund body anyhow.
Eating anywhere from 0 to 800 calories a day and all I've eaten for the past couple months has been salad, oatmeal, sandwiches, fruit and the occasional bowl of cereal. I fucking hate eating so I found a way to make it easier by keeping as little food in the house as possible.
>>25706670 All I ate was ice cream, cookies, corn dogs, pizza, donuts, frozen meals, candy bars, chips, soda and complete shit from ages 0 to 19. Fuckloads of it. Would scarf down 4k calorie pizzas on a daily basis. For an entire year I had nothing but 3 pizzas every single day. Was 130 pounds at age 8 and over 300 by the time I was 13. I also didn't leave the bed for anything other than going to the bathroom or getting something to eat from ages 14 to 19. I actually stopped leaving the bed and started staying up all night eating shit around 11, but I went to school still at least.
I'm still bedridden and haven't exercised in a decade but at least I'm losing weight now. I find that whenever I'm feeling depressed or empty or anxious I get an extreme urge to eat every fucking thing to fill a void inside me. Good thing I made it impossible to do that now, otherwise I would have fucked up and given up already.
400-something. Honestly don't know here I'm at. Probably 460 or so.
I'm trying, man. I'm starting small, just reducing the amount of food that I eat. Eating sensible, normal portions instead of teh insane quantities of food I've been shoveling in for years. Next thing is drinking water and other beverages without added sugar. Trying to do this in steps so I don't get overwhelmed and burn out.
>>25706459 I will never know how people get this heavy. I mean im a fat fuck. ~300 and 6'1''. But i can never get any heavier no matter how much food i eat and booze i drink. I'll eat right and quit drinking and work out for 6 months or so and get down to 240 when i start feeling really shitty about my weight, then ill get fat again and start the cycle over again.
These threads are shit. It's just a bunch of skinny skeleton worthless NEETS talking about how "OMG HOW DO U EVEN GET THAT BIG" and then a bunch of negativity and hate >>25707142 That's not healthy to do what you're doing. You need a lot more cals than that.If you really want to get fit then go to /fit/ instead of being dumb as fuck
>>25707306 I know it's not healthy. I don't want to get /fit/. I don't have the motivation or optimism for that. I'm still depressed as fuck and have no energy for anything. I hate myself so I figure swapping binge eating for starvation might be a plausible way to trick myself into losing weight. I deserve to starve in the first place.
Developed severe sleep apnea, on CPAP now (and oh my god, that almost killed me -- started gaining a lot of weight, feeling tightness in the chest, went to the doctor, was expecting "lose weight you fat fuck" and instead got treated for apnea), haven't even dieted, just losing weight from actually having energy again.
>weight 300 >6'0 >work everyday just eat a lot >drink nothing but water and sometimes alcohol >cook my own food every day >have enough muscle to where it doesn't look bad because of broad shoulders and larger than average frame
I have zero medical problems except where someone punched the back of my knee and that gives me pain sometimes, but other than that nothing. How the hell are you all so unlucky?
>>25707541 start lifting. it's a great incentive for not drinking since alcohol kills gains. additionally learn coding or anything else that enables you to make money from home on a self employed basis. look forward to a shallow mind-numbing existence based on greed and body dysmorphia.
>>25707718 look into nutrition and/or probiotics. shit might not cure your depression but will sure as hell improve upon your condition a lot. also do not think one meal might change anything. it takes time to build up. also something something inflammation.
Went from 362 to 178 in 3 years. Near-zero carb diet, lots of protein, lots of diet 7-up, sugar free gum. Once I lost 60 lbs I felt amazing so I started walking then jogging. I've kept it up and haven't looked back. I haven't had a single potato or piece of bread in all this time, but I eat tons of meat (fish, chicken, beef). It gets old after a while but you kind of lose the taste for anything sweet. Someone tried to get me to eat a single bite of cake at work and I was sick thinking of the sugar in my teeth.
I don't know if this is useful or gives you hope. I feel great, but I'm cynical. People treat me much better just because I'm thinner now. I was nothing to them before. Also, clothes are expensive. I don't have stretch marks but I have baggy skin on my legs, gut, and chest. I wear a compression shirt and I look about 10 lbs overweight with all that accounted. I never resolved the emotional reasons for overeating. I just found other ways to cope (books at home and audio books at all other times). Normies are right when they say "just don't think about it bro." You actually have to go through life without thinking to function normally. Sad but true.
>>25708651 i have a weight gain fetish but only with women, kills me man. I see people with all these fucked up fetishes but I feel like mine is the worst because it's really a grotesque thing and I don't know why
>>25707673 Thanks, anon! To be honest, it's pretty terrible. I'll absolutely need surgery on everything if I can afford it at some point, but I expected it. The amount of loose skin is actually still better than what I thought I'd look like so far. It'll be easier to give a real answer when I'm closer to a normal weight though. I'm hoping more exercise and my recent upping of fish oil will help my skin look better.
>>25707682 I spent all this time trying to decide if I wanted to do this. I just tell everyone and show them my weight at 310 lbs because I'm so embarrassed and don't have a full shot of my body or anything very useful since I wore baggy tarps. After picture there was when I was 235 lbs.
>>25706670 Not everyone was as enlightened as you, O wise one! Truly you are god's chosen
Get off your soap box and try to empathize. For me, it happened when I switched schools in the 3rd grade. I couldn't make new friends (it was a private school with like 20 kids) and so I stayed inside all day playing vidya. Eventually all those packed lunches my mom made started piling up the pounds and two years later I was on a fatty trajectory.
Shaved off probably 40 lbs in freshman year when I did pre-season workouts for Football, but the next year no one made me go, so I stopped going and added the pounds back.
>>25708962 Then just don't eat your entire plate. My family cooks way more than they should and I just eat what I want. Takes some discipline but when you don't eat much and see a bunch of other people eating a bunch, they are disgusting and it reinforces your lower quantity eating habits. It's literally disgusting as a thin person watching fat people shovel in food. So the large dinners end up helping you out.
>>25709084 Talk while you eat and cut your food up, talk about how good it is, keep cutting into smaller pieces, mix it up a bit, take forks up, but then start talking again and put it back down, then talk about how good it is, when you really haven't eaten much.That's what a teenage anorexic girl will do.
But in reality you should just eat what you want and stop being a huge fucking pussy. If you eat because you are afraid of getting 'yelled at' you're an idiot.
>>25708850 I'm not quite sure. I was mostly just going to keep going until I felt good. I might put more thought into it and come up with something when I'm under 200 lbs though.
>>25708861 Thanks a bunch! I started mid-February and I'm pretty much doing what >>25708510 has been. I remove most carbs and sugar (including fruit) from my diet and stick to mostly meat and vegetables while getting a bit of exercise in. High protein is good for your skin and muscles while helping you feel satisfied. I went and looked up a calorie calculator online to find out how many calories I can eat in a day and now plan my food the night before to make things easy.
>>25708910 It really is scary, but some insurance companies MIGHT cover some if it really is harming you. I know insurance will help on the stomach when you get bad rashes at least. There are also those donation sites, but you might have to whore yourself out on tumblr. Are you a bad enough dude?
>400 and going to the gas station for some icecream and soda in a bit At midnight there is no one at the gas station on a workday to judge me It's not like I give a shit anyways, I tried living my life and it didn't work out, now it's junk food and videogames time
>>25708971 I'm not from America and I still have to lose the weight..
>>25709187 Yeah, insurance will only cover the fupa removal, and that's only if it's causing problems like you said.
>There are also those donation sites, but you might have to whore yourself out on tumblr That was the plan if I ever do actually lose it. Not too keen on doing it, but it's pretty much the only way I'd ever have the money without selling a kidney.
>>25709477 I have heard it's incredibly painful and there can be complications while healing. I saw older women saying they would rather give birth again than go through skin removal surgery all over again and that's terrifying to me.
>>25709559 I guess it all depends who you are doing it for. If young probably worthwhile, if older probably not since only time the skin surgery makes sense is if you are trying to get laid and look good
Was 96kgs at 178cm but I keep getting bad chest pain when I drink soda so I had to quit it and that got me down to 80 kgs. Don't feel any better and I really miss fizzy drinks. How do really obese people do it ?
>>25709477 >Is the skin surgery painful? I imagine it would be.
>I imagine they cut your stomach and shit right? They literally skin you alive, cut off the excess skin, place tubes leading to squeezed bottle you have to wear around your waist at all times to drain blood, and have to wear compression garments while your skin reconnects to your body.
I'm literally considering suicide instead of losing weight and having to go through that.
>>25709676 The only reason I want to lose the weight is because it makes me so repulsive to look at, if I lost it, I'd have to wear long sleeve shirts forever or else the loose skin on my arms will hang out, I'd still never be able to take my clothes off in front of someone, if I spun around too fast or try run without a compression garment on, then there's going to be flapping skin bouncing around everywhere under my shirt. My body will be just as repulsive.
>>25708919 Fuck you fatty, you could've kept going to workouts but you chose to jerk your pindick to traps online. Wipe the grease off your cheeto stained fingers and talk a walk you pile of human waste
>>25710891 >>25709756 Thanks for the words, anons. I always expect the worst when I happen to post progress, but everyone has always been really kind, despite this probably being one of the last boards I should be posting on.
>>25708781 You look awesome anon! I'm sure you were awesome before but you're probably so much more healthy now. Depending on where you're from, health insurance will cover the majority of your skin removal. I'm having my lower stomach (apron) and arms done, which I think is what you might end up with. As long as you can document your weight loss, along with any rashes or discomfort the skin gives you, you will qualify.
>>25708781 This is probably the first post on 4chan I've seen with all encouraging/positive replies. Anyways, I'm glad these threads come up every so often. It's nice to hear anons progressing and losing weight, gaining confidence and such. I've lost about 13 pounds since I started my diet and going to the gym daily in December, fucked up a bit because of the holidays but I'm back on track. We're all going to make it fellow fatties
>tfw was 285, now 272 >don't notice anything different other than a less hungry stomach and an empty feeling one >feels way better than belching and feeling full all of the time
