Back when I was completely sedentary, AKA my chess playing days, I might continuously feed on packages of pizza found in the dairy aisle in the local supermarkets. I'd eat it straight from the box, unheated, adding cheese to it. Washed down with diet soda, of course, since I wanted to fool myself that I was watching my weight.

I don't think anyone "wonders" at all about it. There's very little denial here on the C/A Forum. People may have varying degrees of success in losing weight, if that's what they want to do, but I don't see a lot of posts on the order of "I'm fat and I don't know why."

Most of the comments in this thread are descriptions of "before" eating, anyway.

And one more point: a person can lose weight and still eat a LOT of stuff. Either they exercise a lot, like I do on a bike tour, or it's a one-time splurge.

Not really, I'm pretty sure most of us know EXACTLY how we got this big. I've never kept track of what my largest meal was, but I know I kinda went out of control once when I found out I weighed 100lbs more then what I thought I did. Top known weight 606lbs, after hearing that I gave up for a while and ate whatever. I still currently struggle, during Thanksgiving I gave myself that day, and honestly I scared myself I ate more than I needed and still wanted more. With as much weight as I have lost If I don't stay on top of it every day I Know I would gain it all back. So I continue with my journey, one day at a time. I weigh every week I watch what I eat every day because I am not who my body wants me to be.

I'm also 6'6" and used to do a lot of weightlifting. There's no "wonder" as to why I weigh over 200 pounds. I'd look like a pale Manute Bol if I went down under about 205.

My 30 sliders plus fries record was after a sub-12 solo double, if that makes any difference.

Nope, don't really care or wonder why I'm over 200 lbs!...Average cyclist on the right, and my big orange butt on the left. Just got done doing a 62 miler in Casa Grande AZ @ 19.9 average, 70% of the ride was solo. Do I realy need to worry about it?

It's the fries which would do me in. Back in high school and early college when I was doing tris and ultras I could tear through fries with the best of them. Now, if I even get fries, it's a small basket of them and only if the restaurant has malt vinegar. I'll still wreck a stack of burgers after a 300k, though.

I used to backpack. You can only carry about half the calories you burn. One time I went to an all you can eat buffet
in the 80's a couple days after I got back from a backpacking trip. I ate 3 platefuls of food, basically 3 dinners.
The desert dishes were tiny. So I took 4 of their dinky pieces of cake and put them on a dinner plate, buried them under choc soft serve, and added nuts and jimmies.

A good friend saw me coming back and stood up and started clapping. Wound up getting a standing ovation from
the whole restaurant.

And if you think that's impressive, read some backpacker stories, I've seen guys smaller than me put me to shame.

Actually, try backpacking sometime. Some of the best fun you can have standing up.

When I was a teenager, our family would travel to a restaurant about 45 miles away every couple of months for dinner. I usually ordered the 32 oz. porterhouse steak dinner. It was one big hunk of meat and came with all the trimmings. I loved that place!

Best I can do now is
a)4 taco bell burritos OR
b)7/11 nachos(large) with all toppings I can find + 1 microwave burrito + 1 donut OR
c)3 pound pasta tray with a small salad

With a 52oz diet coke as I watching my figure.

Of course, I'm down from 276 to 217 with an immediate goal of 200, or course. As I lose weight, I can eat less and be satiated. I can't even eat a triple Whopper/cheese value meal anymore. Just 2 double cheeseburgers and value fries - $3.

I feel a little better now If I make shells and cheese, stuffing, lg pizza, hamburgers (1lb), etc I tend to eat the whole package. Work stress, overtime, and swing shifts cause me to binge eat as well. Like I need to to have some reserves just in case. I'm with Beanz on homemade tacos - one of my favorites. My typical overindulgence now involves a combo meal followed by 2 chili dogs.
