I'm very contrary so my brain goes mad at the idea of can't have but I'm eating nothing but crap to the point I keep worrying about a heart attack, I'm unrecognisable to myself in photos and don't look nice in anything. I like walking and being outside, I have a fairly active lifestyle but only as in I don't just sit around. I've eaten a whole Packet of biscuits everyday for 3 days and not even enjoyed them I just want to eat all the time. I've been slim in the past at 10 stone now I'm almost 15 and doing nothing about it. I'm actually really sad about this, part of its out of loneliness/boredom as my dh works long hours and I'm at home with the dc in the evenings just eating. I need a total lifestyle overhaul but where do I begin? Thanks.

Hey, chin up. Come and join us at the Now or Never thread, some of us (sadly not me yet) have lost tons of weight and we motivate each other daily. See you there!

For me joining a friendly weightloss group made all the difference. Nice to be in a room with other people with the same problem, supporting each other. I have made lots of friends from my group and lost 5 stone, it changed my life really.

Join us in the 2lbs a week thread smile

Seriously I was eating packets of biscuits and candy bars etc every day.... Today was my first day controlling myself and stepping away from coke zero as well.... It took me a long time to even manage to control myself for a day.

I kept saying I would start tomorrow.

I was the same... Not even enjoying it but using it as an escape (from what I'm still not quite sure)

Just figuring out you aren't even enjoying it is a step....

What worked for me next was deciding I didn't want to do it anymore.

Commit to changing the behaviour to something positive. Today I drank a glass of water EVERY time I wanted to binge on every last bit of sugar and caffeine inthe house eat something I shouldn't.

This helped.... I stayed within my calories.

If you can get into the habit of stopping yourself then at least you are stopping further gain and negative feelings about behaviours.... Then perhaps you can take steps to do something about any weight / habits etc that you aren't happy with.

Hope this helps x

Can you get someone to watch the kids whilst you run? C25K was the key for me. Trust that you can break the food habit and won't miss it. I promise. Sorry you are so down. You can fix this.
