How I Gained It: I've always struggled with weight. But I had developed arthritis in my knees and carrying extra weight made it worse, to the point I hurt so bad that I couldn't walk without excruciating pain. I didn't eat a huge amount at a time, but I ate high-fat meals. Chips, cheese and dips were a favorite.
If you're confined to a powered wheelchair because you weigh 430 pounds, you're getting little to no exercise. And if you're not exercising, you're probably not burning many calories. So how can you ever lose weight? And if it can't be done, why try? This was my perfectly rational analysis.
