Beyond bareable now. Help me.


Okay. I'm almost 20years old. Prior to having my son I was overweight badly. I weighed 20st (280lbs) Now I am still really heavy at 19st 4lb (270lbs) This is really having an effect on me. I have PCOS and have struggled with my weight since I was 8years old. I get funny looks for been the way I am. Now this is getting beyond bareable I can't live like this anymore. I've considered bariatric surgery but don't qualify on the NHS. I have a current BMI of 47. I have tried dieting coninuously. I had my childhood stole away from me. I was always at the dietians which never ended up in me succedding in losing weight. I'm trying so hard but just can't seem to get anywhere. I have major depression and the doctors are useless at helping. I attend the gym everyday of the week for an hour, I eat three times a day balanced out diet. I even eat off a childs training plate so I dont end up eating too much. Ugh please help am at my witts end!!!!!!

Sorry to here you are so depressed

Have you tried myfitnesspal? You can track everything you eat to see where you are going wrong. It also gives you a recommendation for your daily calorie intake in order to lose weight quickly.

You could try joining a group such as weight watchers. The support and friendship could really lift your spirits and keep you on track.

I'd also recommend buying a copy of Paul mckennas "I can make you thin". If you get the copy with a cd it has a hypnotherapy track. It focuses on learning your hunger signals and not overeating whilst still eating nice foods. It's also big on positive affirmations to make you feel good about yourself.

I hope you find some of that helpful xxx

Thankyou. That is very helpful and I will definitley try the book and cd. Also the group thing sounds so amazing but I'm scared they will look at me funny :/ x

I'm sorry to hear about the way you're feeling hon. You'll need to leave your comfort zone to reach your goals, that's the first thing. Don't worry about how people look at you, know inside when you're doing something to reach your goals that you're proud of yourself and nothing else matters!! You'll notice after a certain amount of time, you will have confidence, love for yourself and grow in a way I can't describe. It is truly life changing to put you and your health as a priority. Definitely start a myfitnesspal.com account so you can track what you eat

As far as I am aware I don't have an underactive thyroid. I have got polycystic ovarian syndrome which can cause problems with your weight. I will definitley start up a myfitnesspal. I don't know what I could be doing wrong. But I will certainly make a food diary x

Hi there, keeping a food diary is a great idea as for me, I find that lots of little things tend to slip into my mouth unless I am actively logging everything that passes my lips. It really makes you think about what you are eating and when and why, instead of just carrying on with what has become a habit.

Perhaps if you are wanting to join a slimming group but are feeling unsure about walking through the doors, you could instead join an online one? Slimming World are online and I personally find SW suits me the best as so many foods are unlimited, you can literally fill an entire plate full, eat that and go back for more if you want. And it doesnt mean just eating rabbit food, you can have unlimited potatoes, meat etc and by changing the way you cook them you can make chips everyday and eat as many as you want or a whole chicken if you feel in the mood! I cant be doing with counting points or calories, I find SW easy and filling as I can snack all day on free food and still have enough 'syns' for a Solero (5 syns), Fruit Pastille ice lolly (3 syns), mini Twister ice lolly (2,5 syns), and 5 syns left over for something else every day!

Wow thanks for this. I will definitley look into that. I decided the day after posting this that an hour at the gym a day is good but I also go for a 45min run down our local track now too So I've increased my exercise. But by tracking my food on my fitness pal it has now revealed to me that I may not be eating enough calories for the exercise I do and in which so I could be sending my body into starvation which is apparently very bad for weight loss as it doesn't make loss easy but hard.. Thanks for all the advice. Think slimming world online will be my way forward along with the food diary xx

Ooh definitely dont starve yourself! that would be pure misery and would make you feel really ill, plus it will make losing weight really hard and so will be a motivation killer.

I have a long way to go, I need to lose nearly 7 stone to get to sit comfortably within my BMI. I started Slimming World again (for the 6th time in ten years) last week and this week I have weighed in and lost 5.5lbs. It has always worked for me in the past, I plough on weight when I stop following the plan. It sounds like you are doing masses of exercise, I am trying to build mine up with doing the C25K running programme and doing fitness dance and zumba console games on non running days. I feel better jogging (or 'flumping' along may be a more appropriate description for me) on alternate days otherwise my body just aches, hurts and feels exhausted, this way with more gentle exercise inbetween I feel energised everyday.

Whatever eating plan you choose to follow, make sure you are eating enough otherwise you will be facing a seriously uphill and miserable battle!!!!!!!!

The gym never did anything for me - try walking briskly for that hour every day!
