How many here have "never been thin"

As far back as I can remember I have been the "big guy" or have never been thin. I just want to experience it. I don't want to buy into that anymore or what your family says, things like "" you just have "our build" or genetics""

It sux to alway believe that

    I started gaing weight in the 6th grade. I am now 43 years old. I have been overweight for more than 3/4's of my life and I hate it. I hate the way I look, the way I feel and the pain and stress it puts on my body. I will do this. I will be thin and healthy no matter what.

    I've always been the biggest one in my group of friends. In high school I used to think I was huge but now looking back on pictures, I would kill to be that size again! (And I was like a size 14/16)

    I was never particularly fat or big (but I'm also 5'2" with a pretty tiny frame) but I was definitely overweight and I've never been thin before this other than due to illness and even then I was skinny-fat. Over about a year and a half, I lost 25 pounds and many many inches. Now I've been thin for a couple months and really wish I'd made this effort a few years ago. I also have muscle tone and decent strength for the first time EVER and (hopefully) will never have to ask someone to lift something like an air conditioner again.

    Never been thin :blushing: . I was a big baby (10lb plus), a chubby child, an overweight teenager and obese adult. I can't imagine how good it will feel when I'm finally slim :happy:

    I have never been "thin", however, the more I lose and lift the more I realize I never want to be thin. I want to be a healthy size and weight but also be able to beat *kitten* if I need to. Seeing my muscle tone is amazing.

    I've never been a "skinny" person. Even as a child, I was always a bit taller and heavier than the rest of the kids although not overweight - is big boned even a real thing lol? Because I would say I was that.

    I was pretty slim several years ago but still had curves and athletic legs. I'd love to get back to that shape!

    I've never really been thin for any great length of time. My weight has always been up and down so the longest I've spent slim is a few months.

    I completely understand.

    Ive never been thin. I remember going to the school nurse for check ups on height and weight in primary school and being overweight, by a lot. I remember the exact number was 56 kilos, at the age of around 10 - It was insane. I was sent to fat camp and lost some, but not much and only gained it all again. Now where Im the right age to take control of my own live and what I put in my body I will become thin and healthy and prove to people that I have the willpower, I was not meant to just be that fat, ugly child forever, I can become strong and beautiful.

    Totally me...but that is going to change. My current goal is to be in a bikini by summer for the first time in my life, and you know what, it is going to happen. Then after that I am working on 6-pk abs...or at least 4-pk :)

    I had never been thin - and am not really thin now- but well within the acceptable zone for my height and build.Thankfully, thanks to MFP, I am now where I need to be and maintaining now since May of last year.
    You can do it! It is achievable- just stick with the plan and I'd you fall off the horse at all, just dust yourself off and get back on again.

    I never have, even in high school I was a size 10/12.

    My ex boyfriend just told me this past weekend that i''ll "never be skinny".

    Aiming for a size 8, just to see what it feels like. Like a weird science experiment for my body.

    YUP! I am currently thinner than I have ever been as an adult (including High School & College). I still have a little more to go, or at least body shaping to accomplish. If the scale never dips lower I'll live, but I know I can continue to tone up.
