My name is Kathy and I am 59 years old and weigh over 350 lbs and it really bothers me. I an just getting bigger and bigger and I can 't stop eating. So I need some serious help. I have never been this big. The one thing I feared happened is that I sat in a chair and broke it. Thank God it was my chair( computer chair) and not at someones house,My friend gave me another chair and he said in a nice way that this one is a little more sturdy and wider I was so embarressed that has never happened to me before but I am a little leary of this one because everytime I sit down it crys. .Another thing I am upset about is that I am having trouble behind the wheel of my car If I ever get to the point where I can't drive I will have to do away with myself. I have hadto pull my seat back and am having trouble reaching the pedels and if I pull the seat up the wheel gets stuck on my cloths.By the time I get into the car and bounce around till get confortable behind the wheel and struggle with the belt , Iam so out of breath I have to sit back for a few min and catch my breath. I need help and suport. I want to at least to get down to 250 for now.Another thing that bothers me is that I have not been to a movie in about 2 years. Two years ago I was able to fit in the seat a little snug but fine now I know I can't fit into the seat at all. I had trouble getting out of a booth in the restaruant and all this scares the hell out of me.I have never had this problem before and I don't know what the hell I weigh because the scale I bought a while back went up to 340 now it can't weigh me.Around my belly it has to be 80 some odd inches because the measureing tape does not go around me at all there is a large gap between the 2 ends so I try to figure how many inches there between the 2 ends. When I get into bed and if I move around a little to get confortable I get out of breath so that tells me I am carrying around a lot of weight in plan english FAT. Now I have to watch where I sit and where I go to make sure I fit and not have to squeeze into anywhere. I pray that someone out there knows how I feel. I do not go to anybodys house because I am afraid that if i sit anywhere I will not be able to get up or get stuck in the chair. I was at a friends house and thank god the are big to, I sat on their couch and it was so low I couldn't get up so my friend hadto get a chair and put the back of it towards me and my friend sat in it and her being over 300 lbs that chair wasn't going anywhere and I had to pull myself up using the back of the chair and it was not easy to pull all this weight up. Took about 10 min me struggling. Since then I stay here and have people come to me. I have a friend that has lymphadema in both legs and weighs well over 400 lbs and she hadto get to the doctors office so I brought my car first she tried her roomates car and no way could she get in. her stomach is so large it couldn't make the through the door then she tried mine and mine is larger and no way. it hurt me so much to see her cry because she couldn't fit in the car she is now homebound. To get her out we have to rent a special van that the ramp will hold up to 600 lbs Then to try to push her up the ramp. I cry for her. I always fit in and now I am starting not to fit and I am afraid. I don't want to wake up one day and not be able to fit in my car.

    Hello my Spark Friends! Hope your Monday is off to a great start, for me it is a restart Monday. I have been off track for the last ~ 3 weeks and I can feel and see the damage that I have done. It' back to keeping calories within range, the gym and focusing on the positive stuff in my life.

    Each day is an opportunity to do what is good for you and if you have a setback love yourself enough to get back on track immediately!!!

    Be Fierce!

    Looks like you haven't been here in a while. Hope all is well. I'm 300 plus pounds too and my lousy knees make nearly every exercise painful. I added you as a friend and if you ever need a sympathetic ear, just look me up.
