I’m literally at breaking point, I’m so depressed and feel so disgusting.
I can’t seem to get into the right frame of mind and seem to be stuck in this vicious cycle of eat cause I’m fat, fat cause I eat.
I’m currently taking medication for anxiety and it’s throwing my system completely out.
I’m under investigation for Addison’s Disease which has been an on going battle for 8years now 😩
I’m constantly exhausted, constantly in pain and constantly poorly. (Completely fed up with it)
It drives me mental cause I’m not over weight (bmi) but just feel so horrid.
I’m 12st - 5ft 10 and a size 10-12 but feel so insecure and gross at the minute it’s causing issues at home cause I’m questioning my husband 😭 who loves me to bits and would never hurt me.

I attend slimming world but just seem intent on sabotaging my own success by being a greedy cow!
Can anyone give me any quick and easy recipes or meal ideas (family of 5) so I can plan in advance and won’t have any excuses.
Thanks so much in advance xx

I am sorry you are struggling. I find that I hate to be told what to do and slimming world feels like it is too regimental. Maybe try a Fitbit and keep on track this way. Also I found low carb very good. I check carbs all the time on labels and it is a much simpler way and leave on the shelf anything high. Depending on how active you are try to keep carbs under 50 grams a day, go lower for more weight loss. The Metabolic diet suggests 25 grams but I couldn’t sustain this for longer than 3 weeks but lost 9 lbs. Be kind to yourself if you are unwell.
