Been struggling with my weight. Honest opinions do I look fat?

Been struggling with my weight. Honest opinions do I look fat?








For over 2 years I have been struggling with a medical condition that makes me have to take steroids to stabilize my blood pressure. This causes weight gain. I weighed 120 lbs and now weigh 170 from being on this medication. I want an honest opinion because no one close to me will tell me.

Updates:
I'm 5'4 lol I'm short

  • You carry 170 a hell of a lot better than a lot of girls carry 120, I'll say that.

    Still, most steroids raise blood pressure, and putting on weight raises blood pressure. You must have had very low blood pressure to need this.

    In either even, you CAN NOT, medically, stay on steroids for a prolonged period. You simply can not. They will destroy your long term health. Speaking from personal experience here.
    Also speaking from personal experience, when you are off the steroids, that weight will come off, even if slowly at first.

    • Yea I had a extremely low bp where I couldn't even walk just getting up I would pass out. I got a procedure called a TVAM done to help my Dysautonomia which has helped. I have been on the Florinef for almost 2 years now - and my cardiologist doesn't want me off so I don't regress to where I was. I did make another appt with him to talk about the health concerns because with cortisone my body over produces sugar causing weight gain as well.

    • Well, that sounds complicated and awful. I hope they figure something out. A non-steroidal solution should be possible.

      I looked up Florinef, and it says one side effect is salt retention. That makes sense, if they want to raise your blood pressure. It also means that some of your weight is most likely water weight, and not fat or anything.

      On to the question itself though, I meant what I said. You carry 170 much better than many people carry significantly less. I would never have guessed your weight so high. You do not look fat at all.
      Weight is, for the most part, just numbers. If you're OK with how you look, don't worry too much about the numbers. And you should be OK with how you look.

  • So basically, ''Hey guys and girls, Look at these pictures of my ass and face whilst i pose wearing tight clothing and clearly look attractive, But oh gosh im so ugly and fat though''...

    I fucking hate it when people like you do this shit, You fucking know you're not fat, You fucking know you're not ugly, if you did think that, You would not be fucking uploading pictures like that wearing leggings and shit, And there is absolutely no fucking way you wiegh 170 unless you are like 8ft tall. Again, Stop lying.

    Fucking attention seekers smh...

    • Lmfaoooo it's funny how people go out of their way to troll. As mentioned I am on medication due to a medical condition making me gain 50lbs from steroids to support my blood pressure. Yes, some of this weight is water weight. I truly do feel overweight and am hearing it from my doctors as well. Not attention seeker, thank you.

  • you have absolutely no weight issue... and unless you are 7 feet tall there is no way you weigh 170lbs

  • WHAT? There is no way you weigh 170 lbs. You must be really tall or something.

    Well if its any consolation, you don't look like you weigh nearly that much. I would've guessed 110-120. I personally think you have a great body, and you need not worry about it.

  • Unfortunately, weight gain is a drawback of taking steroids. However, you don't have the classic "Steroid Face." which makes a person resemble a hamster with its pouches full of food.
    You have a very shapely figure and as long as you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, you should maintain your shapely figure.
    Shorts would have given a better idea as to how your legs look, but, they look good as they are.

  • you carry weight absolutely amazingly. you do not look fat at all, the steroids might have made you gain muscle because you look the size of a 130 pound girl. you look normal sized so don't worry about the number on the scale, worry about body fat percentage which i'm sure is not high at all for you.

  • This is nothing but a lying attention seeking post. Why not just ask how you look? There are people who truly do struggle with their weight, and then they see posts like this. It's worse because you are clearly lying about your weight. We all know you don't weigh 170 pounds. If you're going to lie about your weight, at least make it believable. This is just a post to get men to say: "Oh you're not fat at all!" or "You look good for 170." even though most women on here know you don't weigh that much.
