I know my weight is simple. I eat too much.
I have always been heavy. And before I broke my leg I was pretty active. Rode bikes, played fast pitch, street football, hide and seek, army and other things.
I always ate a lot. And because of a divorce I either lived with my grandparents, and was fed anytime I wanted, or with my single mother, and ate any time I wanted.
I ate when I watched tv, ate when I was bored, ate when I was sad. I learned to cook and got curious about food. Food became another hobby.
After a dirt bike accident I had multiple surgeries on my leg and stopped being active and gained a ton.
I became something of an advocate for fat rights, and learned to stand up for myself. It made being overweight not so bad in a social sense.
I realize without surgery I will probably be fat for the rest of my life.
And I think I am ok with that.
