On being bullied on he Internet for her weight:

‘The way I stand up to bullies is with kindness and love because I think that’s what they really need. They’re misunderstood and probably really upset themselves and it’s been hard because I have some internet bullying.’

    there is no way she is considerable… she seriously had to be in pain all the time. I hope she starts eating better for herself and her joints and organs. she seems like a lovely lady who deserves to feel great and be able to be comfortable

      I can attest to being in pain non stop. I was big, not close to her but big and yes, the joint pains are real, even getting up from the couch is difficult.

        It’s so sad. I live with RA and I’m 132 at 5’9 at my heaviest I was 165 but I was a college athlete… I’m in so much pain all the time. I could not imagine how she feels. I really hope she loses the weight. She seems like a very sweet lady

      I wasn’t even close to this lady’s weight/size at my highest weight, but joint pain really did happen.. especially knees and ankles; when I bent my knees you could actually hear them pop and make crunchy noises. My ankles were swollen constantly, whether I was sitting or standing, walking or running. I have small feet, so balancing all that weight became my ankles’ job. And because they got wobbly my knees had to work very hard. I also have x-shaped legs, that also doesn’t help when you have to balance a lot of weight.

      When I switched jobs (to a more active job, I now spend most of the time on my feet) I started losing weight rapidly and after losing 10lbs and building a lot of leg muscle the ankle swelling went away. 10 more and my knees got a lot better. The first month was hell though, I almost quit my job because I couldn’t stand and walk for so long, but did it anyway, after buying some really good, very supportive (and very expensive, haha) shoes. I’m 40lbs down now, but still have weak ankles and knees, but thank goddd, the pain is gone. Think I will always have weak joints because of my past obesity. If I stand still for a while and my leg muscles relax, I tend to just twist my ankle and fall (looks really stupid lol), it’s like the muscles are stretched out from trying to keep me in balance when I was fat.

        why don’t you try squatting to make your joints and legs stronger? learn how to have proper form and add some weight each week, it could help a lot and get you back to normal.

    she has a pretty face

    • wert

      with pretty eyes!

  • Arina

    how much do you think she weighs?

  • Gianina

    I am almost as large as her… I am also young, 19 and I don’t know what to do. how to lose weight when I have no motivation? I also have a terrible family who seem against me every time I want to get healthier. My therapist said that my mom has narcissistic personalty disorder and that she abused me all my childhood and put me down, which caused me to gain so much weight. is this possible? it seems so far fetched to me, but I don’t have another explanation.

      Do not listen to those people. I know it is hard not to. Sometimes the people who should love and believe in us the most are the ones who cause it’s the most pain. It could be possible that your mother had npd but you are now an adult… She no longer had power over you. You are strong… You can do it. You will lose the weight and make the charges so you’re life will be what you want whenever you are ready. Sometimes people are afraid that if we improve and they do not somehow we will leaves them behind and sometimes they should be left behind. You have greatness in you. Do not doubt yourself because of the writers of others. They are not who you haves to answer to. You… My dear. Only have to answer to yourself.

      It’s very possible that you literally built a wall around yourself (of fat – I don’t say that to be mean or anything, I don’t know how else to say it) to protect yourself from your mother, as weird as it may sound. The mind can do crazy things to cope with trauma. It can be your way of not feeling pain or hiding yourself. Getting rid of that wall can be scary, especially if food is used as something to comfort yourself when you feel sad or vulnerable; then you would have to remove the items that make you happy (certain foods) and ‘the wall’ that protects you will disappear because you lose weight, making you feel more vulnerable. That is a very hard process. You probably have to learn new ways of dealing with your trauma instead of turning to food and learn to be comfortable without ‘your wall’.

      You actually hear about weight issues related to (past) traumas a lot, also on the other side of the spectrum; anorexia and bulimia; if you have a lot of issues in your life and feel like you have no control some people turn food and their weight into something they can control obsessively; not eating, dropping as much weight as possible. It makes them feel in control of something and gives them a sense of security/confidence.

      I don’t know you personally but I think anyone can make a change 🙂 It’s probably going to be hard, because you have to learn new, healthy coping mechanisms. Don’t rush yourself, don’t pressure yourself. Every small change is a good change 🙂 I’m sure your therapist can help you set up a couple of goals for yourself. They don’t have to be big; 100 small steps make 1 big step, and a couple of those and you are at the finish line 🙂 Good luck <3

        Totally.

        After years of emotional turmoil with my parents… I college I ended up with a serve eating disorder but with sports no one noticed. After college I got into an abusive marriage and my ed and depression were so server I was down to 93 lbs and finally left and got healthy and went through extensive therapy alone and with my family. So you’re so right about how we can use food or controlling food to comfort us in tones of emotional turmoil

        • anna

          wow, i am so sorry to hear about your marriage and the effect it had on you… I remember talking to you about marriage once (long time ago) on this site, but I had no idea you were dealing with all that 🙁 i’m so glad you got out of that situation and made the right choice for your health <3

          • cheeze.wiz

            Thanks girl. My life is so much better now 🙂

      Try to get away from your mother. If you are serious about weight loss you should become independent and not surround yourself with enablers. You can do anything you want if you set your mind to it!
