Hi - I guess I am on here because I have a rather problematic eating habit, which is that most of the time I forget to eat at all or eat far to small portions. I am one of those skinny guys who wishes nothing more than to put on weight. It doesn't help that I am an active person and have a thyroid condition which means that I probably burn of more than I eat. I am just really sick of hearing comments like 'I'd wish I had your problems' or 'Be glad that your skinny, you put on weight when your older'. Most people just don't realize that being slim, especially for a guy, and wanting to put on weight, is just as difficult as loosing it. Also, comments about a persons figure hurt just as much if you are one the opposite end of the spectrum - but somehow it is OK to comment if you're skinny.

So that's why I am here for to make sure I'll eat enough and don't keep loosing the pounds. I am sure there are other people out there with a similar problem and I hope I'll meet some on Spark people. I just wish there would be more literature or tools like this available for support when you want to put on weight. Anyway, I'll look forward to this experience and hope I can see some changes. Thanks guys for reading ;-)

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I've read about why you are here at SparkPeople, above, and thank you for mentioning the issue of commentary that challenges you. I'll be sure to remember that in future, and not make insensitive remarks to friends who have the same challenges.

    If you ever find yourself planning to be in the Denver, Colorado area, be sure to get in touch through SparkPeople, and you would be welcome to join a hike with my group.
