I am 5'9". Two years ago, I weighed 190 and had a 32 inch waist (and even than I was probably anout ten lbs over my ideal weight), than a series of events happened that caused me to live a very unhealthy, stressful lifestyle. No need to get into the details of all that, but the end result is that I now weight 260 and have a 40 inch waist. It is just lately within the past couple of months that I am starting to feel the affects of that. Back problems, sore feet after standing or walking for any length of time, and various other aches and pains that come with caring extra weight. Basically, I am uncomfortable all of the time. Any others feel the same way? Are there any overweight people that are not uncomfortable? Ive started taking steps to get back to where I was two years ago (eating better, trying to get more exercise), but I think I have a long road ahead of me.
