Hi, just wondering how many people here have been obese/very overweight?

I can definitely be included in this. I had a major growth spurt early on, but seemed to get as wide as I did tall (in 4th grade, I was about 8" taller than most kids in my class but also around 50-100 lbs. heavier than most of them as well). Had lots of weight fluctuations through my teenage years - I'd be in the low 200s most times during the summer from going skateboarding for 4-8 hours/day, then during the winter I'd get back to 250-275 lbs. from not being as active and eating junk food all day and night. Not good on the body to shift 100 lbs. over the course of a year, but I did it for the greater part of a decade.

Didn't see a number under 200 on the scale until I started lifting when I was 21 or 22, that was short-lived because a few years later I'd get hooked on strongman and got chubby all over again in the name of strength :wink:

Still trying to figure out how to get rid of that last 10 lbs. of crud weight that never seems to go away, but considering what I used to be like, I'll take it and be happy with it for now :)

Thanks Greg. I remember doing BB Shoulder Presses in your driveway before I had really started working out. Thank you for all your support and really sparking my interest into getting in shape.

I'm still overweight. I have never been obese though. But I have been pregnant twice. :)

Yup, I was 295 at 6'2" back in 2007. Went vegan, lost a little over 100 lbs in a little over a year, and never gained it back.
