I have been overweight now for 36 years.   I weighed 135 lbs at age 17 when I got pregnant with my son.   Gained 60 lbs.  Ended up weighing 165 and thought I was so obese at the time.  After about 2 years at that weight I started going on diets.  I tried them all, rarely ever lost anything significant, but always gained back twice what  I lost.  Stayed about 200 lbs., which still was not too bad because I could still get around good. Then about 10 yrs ago I became hypothyroid, my weight soared to my highest - 240 with arthritis in my knees.  It was no longer comfortable to get around.  My activity level has been less and less.
