NO! I've always been on the heavy side - "chunky", I think they called it. And it just kept creeping up on me, until I weighed 250 pounds and only 5'2" ... that's when I decided to do something about it. Now I'm down to 214, on the way further - thanks to Weight Watchers, Spark People and a sugar free diet!

Didn't start gaining weight until I was about 25 years old, that wasn't easy-I was so used to eating anything and everything and not gaining weight at all,after 25 if I look at food I gain weight:( I'm 62 now and puggy)

Yes - "perfect" as in no problems...Oh - as a teen I was a little concerned that my thighs touched at the very top - duh

PS To my old SP friends - It's been a very rough journey... My beloved, healthy, athletic, tall, dark and handsome husband died in August 2012 from a very aggressive cancer... In the many months caring for him I was stressed and didn't "care" anymore, and put back on 30 pounds I had just finished losing... And then I gained even more...

A short, but very sweet, video tribute to this beautiful man:

Yes, and what's odd is, though two pregnancies have changed my metabolism so that I haven't been skinny for years and years now, my mental picture of myself has never changed. I kept it for many years because it helped me not feel so bad about myself, but now it just looks like an obstacle in the way of me getting healthy.

Never. Born 12lbs13. Fat kid. Obese teenager. Odd thing is that I was very athletic... Ski team, swim team, never a couch spud. Obese young adult. Lost 140 pounds in my mid 30's and kept it off until late 40's when I had some 'structural' issues and had multiple surgeries that kept me off my feet for long stretches of time... and a bit of fear about overdoing afterward. Flash forward to mid-50's... fat again. Have since lost 55 in the last year, but it is painfully slow and tiring and still have 25 to go.

As a kid I was slim, in fact in my teens I was called slimkim...I thought at the time it was insulting because I was rather tall for a teenager or for a girl for that matter. Times have changed now I would welcome anyone who called me slim lol. emoticon

not really. my mom was oldest daughter and she had to help grammy to do the cooking for all the kids. we always had food on the table that could feed an army. she also was a great baker. we always had either homemade cookies, cakes, pies, cream puffs, ice cream, etc in our house. the neighbors loved her for her treats. when I got married I weighed 105 pounds and my husband weighed 135. in a picture I looked way bigger than him. he is small boned and I have large bones. what a difference, lol. dads side of family was lets say big boned.

Yes, I have been really thin for most of my life. I started gaining weight about 6 years ago and now weigh more than I ever have, even during pregnancy. It is difficult to figure out what and how much I can and cannot eat, since I have always been able to eat anything I wanted to. A few life crisis, some hormonal changes, and a lot less time to exercise have taken a toll.

My name is Kristine, and I live in Connecticut

I think it is way harder psychologically dealing with weight issues if you have been thin for most of your life. The shame of becoming fat can be debilitating. I isolated myself and avoided people who knew me before. When you have been thin for ¾ of your life and then balloon into morbid obesity after 40, it is hard to wrap your head around it. It is still a daily struggle for me.

Co-Leader: Coping With Binge Eating Disorder (BED) team

Most people with eating disorders do not get diagnosed or seek help.
There are more people with BED than Bulimia and Anorexia combined.
BED is a distinct eating disorder and differs from Compulsive Overeating or Emotional Eating.
EATING DISORDERS ARE AN ILLNESS, NOT A CHOICE.

Extremely underweight until the birth of my first child. Thyroid burned out, postpartum depression and my metabolism swung wildly to the other side. It's been a constant battle since. But I'm determined to beat it. Despite the weight, I've been good about staying active.

Yes - slender - "normal"

Mary

PS To my old SP friends - It's been a very rough journey... My beloved, healthy, athletic, tall, dark and handsome husband died in August 2012 from a very aggressive cancer... In the many months caring for him I was stressed and didn't "care" anymore, and put back on 30 pounds I had just finished losing... And then I gained even more...

A short, but very sweet, video tribute to this beautiful man:

My Doctor always got on my case because I was extremely underweight. At the age of 21 years old I weighted 98 pounds. After giving birth I managed to gain 10 pounds= total weight 108 .

I was thin as a child and teenager. I am tall and I was always described as "big" instead of using tall. I was taller than all the boys and girls in my school so I stood out. I guess somewhere along the way I believed I was "big" and fulfilled this description. I look back at my weight and wish I was at that weight, it was great. Funny how little words stay with a person.

I was not thin but my weight was within guideline for my age and body type. Even though I saw myself as fat I can look back and see that I was a normal sized - not big- person.

Yes! Thin all of my life until my late 40's. Hey, I'm gonna deal with this issue now, here at SP.

I have already seen some results. Slow, but change is happening. emoticon

Yes I was skinny and underweight for years. Ate constantly thru college until an auto accident threw my adrenal system out of whack. My metabolism never recovered and the weight has slowly been gained over the years.

Oh sure I lost weight going to WW and maintained for a while. Can't be as active now & have a bad knee plus who wants to go to PT 3x a wk just to work out right after being in the office all day? Not me - and I have other things to do many evenings. And I did become an excellent cook plus the hubby likes to take us out to eat so that hasn't helped. Sitting around watching sports on TV.

Still I'm trying. Going back to the orthopedic doctor to see what else can be done short of knee replacement surgery - maybe a knee brace to help me walk? Meantime if you see marsupial limping around it just might be me :-)

Yes I was always average weighing 130 when I got married. Pregnancy, double knee replacement, and both hips replaced I now find myself at 260. I just joined Spark People and trying to work my way around. At 70 I just want to feel better and possibly walk without my cane. Could spend all day just reading on this site. Thank you.

I was a normal weight for my age and size. However, my mom kept comparing me to my Grandma Mac. She weighed 350 pounds. In spite of the facts I heard my mom's voice and started to gain weight when I was "out on my own " in my first job. I took my 5 ft 2 inch frame up to 270 pounds before I lost 85 pounds from 1990 to 1992. 15 years later I am struggling to get rid of the 25 pounds I gained back. My mantra: One day at a time.

I was on the heavy end of normal

Yes, because my mother made us eat ONLY at meal time and we had to sit at the table and she dished out our food so we had healthy portions. We never took food into the rest of our spotless clean house, nor did we eat between meals. We never ate 'junk food" except at a picnic where we got burgers and fries or a soda.
In high school I was 5'4" and 114# and when I got married I was 118# at age 19 I was just a normal weight.

Remember kids clothes labelled "husky"? I wore that size as a little girl. I always thought I was huge and fat and ugly, well you know the drill. I look back on pictures of myself as a child and I was not fat or large or even big for my age, I just wasn't one of those tiny kids. I think my weight issues started then because I was always being told I was "husky" and I didn't fit into normal sized clothes, so obviously I had to make the outside and insides match. I regret that I listened to other voices instead of my own and loved myself when I was a normal weight. I don't think I would have allowed myself to get fat as an adult. In truth though I started really gaining weight with the birth of my 5 children. Now my goal is to return to the weight I was before I started having kids - not fat, but just right.

yes, I was very athletic. I was a gymnast for 10 yrs. My weight became a problem for me when I started having children.

Yes. I tried to give blood while in college and was told that I needed it more than they did because of my size. Work took care of the low weight thing. Every promotion added at least 10 lbs until I'm working to lose the gains now that I'm retired.
