I'm a 650 pound guy, Ama
By - 650poundguy
Can you see your wiener?
No, I lost that when I was probably 400.
Why does everyone in your town weigh so much?
Yeah, it’s in America, and I guess that’s just the way people are, not too sure.
Yeeeeeah, no stop trying to excuse your lack of a proper diet for HUUR DUUR AMERICA FAT1!1!1
Are you in urban or rural America? North or South?
I’m in Mississippi, and it’s not urban, but there are quite a few houses and businesses.
I live in Americana (suburb) and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone in person who weighed more than 400 lbs
What does your daily diet consist of? Did you get to that weight gradually since childhood or had a period of extreme binge eating that resulted to enormous weight gain?
For breakfast, pop tarts and coffee with cream and sugar, lunch around 3 or more Big Macs and fries, dinner usually same as lunch, or an entire pizza. I usually eat chips throughout the day, and I drink probably 3 or more liters of Coke a day. Mostly gradual weight gain.
Have you checked your health? Your diet looks like an one way street to diabetes. Are you concerned at all? Also, are you ok with your weight and diet or do you wish to make any changes?
I have checked my health, I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. I’m a bit concerned. I know I should lose some weight but I haven’t really had that “wake up call”.
I'd imagine discovering the high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes would be the wake up call
What kind of wake up call do you expect? If you go into diabetic shock or have a heart attack, it will be too late. I would say choose a fat loss diet (I'd suggest Slow Carb, as it is quite effective), stick with it for a few months, then once you see the results then you'll get motivated to keep going.
It’s okay, you’ll only have to worry about it for a couple more years. After that it’s your family’s problem to miss you I guess.
I cannot imagine a diet that's worse for anyone's health let alone yours at your current weight. It's too much fat-making garbage - you must change your eating habits now.
Why are you so fat? Does it not bother you that you can't lead a normal lifestyle?
Do people look at you funny?
Do you need 3 seats on the plane? Would they even let you in the cabin?
Are you not worried that your gonna die at 40 with this lifestyle? And that the damage done already is irreparable?
Have you been seeing a doctor for help?
Do you want to get fit?
Do you have sex?
D-do you live in Pawnee? I KNEW PAWNEE WASNT FICTIONAL!
What is your life expectancy?
How would I know that?
Idk if your doctor or anyone ever told you, since sometimes people with high obesity have limited life expectancies due to complications and associated illnesses
Count down from 60?
Yes, 10,000 may seem like a mile for you. But simply just diet. Why not just make your own food. Eat fruit and eggs and what not for breakfast. Nice cold deli sandwich for lunch. Chicken rice and veggies for dinner. Simply do that for a whole month and you’ll feel better.
How tall are you?
Yeah so I don’t have a question, but I do have a story.
There was a man in my town who got so fat that he couldn’t leave the house, when he inevitably died in the house they obviously couldn’t get him out. Since he couldn’t just be left there they had to CUT A HOLE in the side of the house. They hauled him away in a DUMP TRUCK. They took him to the ZOO to cremate him where they dispose of dead zoo animals. You can still see where they cut the hole in the house and everybody in town knows about it, his family was far more embarrassed than you could imagine.
I don’t know how much he weighed but what I do know is you can’t be far behind, this is the road you’re on. It’s time to make a change today and maybe salvage what’s left of your life.
Holy fuck! How can half the people in your town be that big???
How is your quality of life?
What are your thoughts on the show "My six hundred pound life"?
Not sure, I haven’t watched it.
How much is 650 pounds in kg? Asking for, you know, the rest of the whole world
Can you clean yourself? Wipe your own ass?
I use a bidet.
What's your daily driver ?
Thank you for sharing and I wish you a better health in future. Two questions:
1. What is it that drives you to eat - physical hunger, boredom, craving, or just really love food?
2. Was there a moment when you realised, wow I am very big and need to do something about it?
1: Just really love food
2: Not really
No, I know I should lose weight, but I haven't really done anything yet.
After walking a few minutes, I get SERIOUS back and knee pain, and am super out of breath, so 10k steps looks like a mountain to me.
I believe you.
10k steps a day is just setting you up for failure. Also a fitbit is a waste of money unless you've got money to burn. You could get a cheap pedometer or use an app on your phone.
Find out what motivates you. Also, do you have any mental health issues that could benefit from seeing a doctor? Like anxiety or depression for starters? Sometimes medication can help along with doing some work for yourself.
I find that whenever I eat junk food, I lose my sense of taste for healthy food.
When I was at a pain clinic at the hospital I got some great advice:
***You don't have to sweat for exercise to be beneficial.***
Basically put: **gentle exercise is beneficial**.
Maybe try a gentle walk of around 300 metres? Pause to catch your breath then go for it again.
You are welcome to message me anytime if you want some encouragement to get healthier.
Good luck with that. It’s not too late. You deserve a happy and healthy life!

What else do you like to do besides eating? What do you do for a living? Are you satisfied with how things are or do you want to lose weight (I'm not expecting a specific answer to this question and am not asking in a judgemental way. You have a right to live the way you want to.)
Have you ever heard of the keto diet? Can help a lot on a lazy lifestyle. I weighed 320 pounds once and over the course of a year and a half I got down to 180.
Have you always been overweight? What were your plans for your future when you were younger and does being overweight affect those plans in any way?
You should watch videos by David Goggins or when he was on the Joe Rogan Podcast. He could help motivate you to lose the weight.
Do you have plans to try to lose the weight or are you happy how you are? Do you have a girlfriend/wife boyfriend/husband?
Edit: I'm so sorry for the rude ways a few people are asking their questions on here. You're a person and you don't deserve that.
Who makes your food for you? You, or someone else? Or do you order food all the time? If so, how do you earn money?
Why have you let yourself get to this size? Does it not bother you that you’ve destroyed your body?
if you wanted to change that, (not saying you shoud or shouldn't), fasting is a pretty good way.
Do you think shows like ‘My 600 Pound Life’ exaggerates what it’s like or is it fairly accurate?
are you a gainer(fetish)or just trying to be strong enough to kill a gorilla bare-handed?
what normal things for other people are hard for you? for ex: tying shoes and stuff
Have you ever thought about losing weight? If so,what would your goal weight be?
I have, but kind of lack the reason to do it. I guess if I did my goal would be 350 or 400.
Have you lost all motivation to lose weight or are you planning on it?
are you making steps to lose weight? and how's your breathing?
I know I should lose weight, but I don’t really see a reason. My breathings ok, but I use a cpap at night and get pretty out of breath when walking.
You dont wanna lose weight to look better? Youre a young guy. You dont wanna go out and meet women or something? i dont mean for this to sound rude or anything, sorry
How long, why did you get to this point? Depression?
No, I’ve been big since I was a kid, the weight just came in gradually
