I weigh 341 pounds. But I tell people I weight 250 so that they don’t judge me as much.

don’t let a number define who you are!
I doubt people believe you when you say you weight about 100lbs less than you do. Not to be mean but an extra 100lbs is obvious- no matter what number you tell people.
@nope #, don’t be a tool. Telling someone your weight is uncomfortable no matter what size you are. Don’t be so judgmental.
I’m not judging in any way and not even remotely being judgmental as I could care less about what people weigh. I’m pointing out that this persons lie is probably obvious so there is no point to lying. You are what you are. Telling people I am 5’7″ wont change the fact that I am 5’4″ and everyone can see that. That is not being judgmental and if you feel that it is, may I refer you to a dictionary.
I don’t know what has happened to lead you to believe the misconception that you will be judged for what you weigh, but I am sorry. Please, be proud of who you are, and do not sucumb to the unrealistic idealiasations of what our bodies “should” look like.
And if this issue is more serious then I can perceive, please find help.
Regardless of the situation, be brave. You are not alone, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Nothing.
Dang, why are you telling ANYONE how much you weigh?!? Except your doctor? I’m (fairly close to) normal weight and I don’t tell people! It’s not anyone elses’ business! But if you’re not healthy or comfortable, get help for the weight. That’s most important.
I don’t know how tall you are or how your body is shaped but I think if you’re at a uncomfortable or unhealthy weight-NEVER GIVE UP! Change yourself to become the person you’ve always wanted to be because it is never too late. You could even start right now:) I also have started to eat healthy to lose weight and its very trying. Disregard how people look at you or use as fuel so when your at your goal weight they can suck ass!
How about don’t tell people your weight. It’s not anyone’s business anyway.
i find it strange how some people are so negitive about genine problems people have and how they feel about these problems. i used to be skinny not overly skinny but noraml i guess, then i got a boyfriend and weight was not so much of a issue. he still loves me how i am, and suprisingly i likel how i look and i have streach marks and everything. he is the one makes me feel good and to be honest im finally happy with how i look
You have it backwards anyway. Tell people you are 400+ lbs and they will think you look amazing for such a heavy person!
No, a number on a scale is nothing to be ashamed of. However, there is ALWAYS SOMETHING of which to be ashamed. Particularly the reasons for which people are heavy, in many cases. I talked to a guy who had been in the army, who claimed to have “just picked a number” for his weight on his driver’s license. He also claimed to have 6″ in length in his favorite body part. Both were lies. If he had nothing to be ashamed of, he could have told me the truth, but he likes to spend every weekend in his recliner without moving (by his own admission). THAT is what he SHOULD have been ashamed of. That, and the fact that he assaulted me repeatedly when he drove out to visit me one night. What an f-ing pig! And he is, indeed, a sociopath. The guy goes to the emergency room when he has a cold. I hope when he has a heart attack, that someone else who has a teeny discomfort makes him wait an extra eight hours in the ER lobby. What an absolute douche-bag!
Don’t worry about the number. I weighed 350. I started watching just my salt intake and ate less then 2000mg a day. A year later I weigh 232. I have 40 more pounds to go to reach my goal. Don’t worry about others. Do it for u…no one else.
your a fat pig..maybe if you kept your mouth shut…youd eat less .
@mike the pest
Maybe if you knew the difference in”your” and”you’re” you wouldn’t have looked like such an idiot.
I’m 230 and I tell people that I weigh 230. Jaws drop every time and they normally guess me to be around 175. Win!
I had surgery to lose weight. Please do not let people get to you. This country is thin-oriented and fat shaming is still acceptable, but do not let ANYONE steal your smile.
@nope# “I doubt people believe you when you say you weight about 100lbs less than you do. Not to be mean but an extra 100lbs is obvious- no matter what number you tell people.”
That’s not always true. When I complain about my weight, they inevitably tell me “Oh, ### lbs isn’t that bad for your height and your build!” But what I don’t tell them is, they are guessing ~80 lighter than I actually am.
341 is almost 200 lbs over what you should weigh to be healthy. Stop thinking about what people think and think about your life. Do you like being alive? if so then you really should lose wieght. I really am not trying to be mean just genuine concern.
You may be overweight but no one is better than you. If the beautiful people ran the world we’d all be in trouble. Take steps to lose the weight for yourself and forget the people who are too stupid to see beyond physical appearance.
@nope# that is not at all true i am nearly 400 pounds and dont look like it….people carry their weight different stop being a jerk
@Zodiarkk I’m sure the OP appreciates your “genuine concern,” but telling them they are 200lbs overweight is RIDICULOUS. You don’t know how tall they are. What if they are 6’2? You think that person should weigh 140bs? You should use your brain before you make a comment like that.
I’m skinny. I have no female friends. When I did, they were nasty to me. Once I was sick and on antibiotics and became slightly chubby for about a month. They started calling me “blimp”. A friend took me out separately for birthday lunch because she did not want to invite me to her party at night because her bf kept asking about me. I got her the job where she met him. No, you won’t have more friends if you’re skinny. You’ll have less.
People think we are overweight because we eat too much; this is not always true. And I hate it when a Doctor uses the word “obese”. Please just say I’m too fat.
I lost my beautiful 32 year old daughter 8 months ago. She had a rare endocrine cancer that took her in 3 months. She was so beautiful and full of life and plans. I miss her so much. She weighed 323 when she went in to the hosp. and 248 when she died. Sometimes I wonder if the weight had something to so with it, but weight has nothing to do with love.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you are only as beautiful as you feel. Reflections lie. Don’t let your weight get you down and out because sometimes the people we SEE are so beautiful are ugly on the inside and that is what really matters. The ones that judge are usually the ones that have self issues and want to bring others down to feel better about themselves. I may not be beautiful to others but I know on the inside I am gorgeous because I have love in my heart. You need to look past any scale or any mirror because that is not who you are. What makes YOU is how you love,care, feel, listen, and believe. Keep positive and remember…YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Don’t let anyone tell you different.
I’ve been heavy my whole life, just like my father. Now I see how screwed up he is in his late 70′s and it really scares the ever lovin crap out of me… I have ZERO willpower.. So I’m just gonna bite the bullet and do the Gastric Bypass Surgery.. I don’t eat unhealthy just too much of it. I know I don’t want to be a crippled up breathless old man like that.
That’s okay. When I was 250 I used to tell people I weighed 185 for the same reason. It also gave me a goal to shoot for. Now that I’m 170 I tell people it’s none of their business:) You are beautiful from the inside out not the outside in!!
