It’s a shocking number to me.  309 pounds.

If you told me when I was 20 years old that one day I would weigh 309 pounds, I would certainly have dismissed the idea with total confidence.  I was overweight at that time in my life, but not obese, and I didn’t see myself as “one of those people.” Plenty of people carry some extra weight, but obesity… well, that’s a whole other thing.  Those people are gluttons, or weak-willed, or something.  I mean, how do you let yourself get to that point?  Surely you can see that there’s a problem, and if you don’t do something about it, then it must be a kind of willful sabotage, right?


But here I am.  309 pounds.  How did it get to this?  What on earth happens, that a person lets themselves get this heavy, this unhealthy?

I’m sort of at a loss to even write about it.  Has this happened in your life?  Is it weird for you to think about?
