Struggling with complex issues

I'm not sure what I hope to achieve but I need to get this out. A condensed history is that I was a skinny/slim & active child, bullied by my father for being too skinny, not clearing plate and not eating enough veg. He imposed his views by force feeding vegetables and things despite them making me vomit.
Unsurprisingly, I now can't eat the foods.
His master plan back fired and I have been overweight from the age of about 13. I have had bad habits with snacks and fizzy drinks, but since October half term I stopped them. Gone from an easy 4 cans of fizzy drink in a day, and snacks like crisps to replacing with water and avoiding snacking. I've also had noro virus, and seemingly the only person that doesn't lose any weight when I can't keep anything down for a week. I haven't had any difference at all, and I feel worse too.
I try to be sensible, but can't eat most of the necessary foods because of my history.
On top of this I'm having irregular bleeding, and chronic pelvic pain that they can't find the cause of.
I'm so miserable which makes it harder to control the urge to comfort eat.

Oh dear. A failure here too.

Not a failure at all flowers Don't be too hard on yourself, losing weight can be a real struggle at times, even for those without complex issues.

It doesn't help that you're having to deal with medical issues. Unsurprisingly, you're miserable and turn to food for comfort. Do you have people in real life you can talk to about this? Are the medical issues still being investigated?

Sorry, I didn't think anyone would reply. Yes, still being investigated.
I feel so shitty, which makes me struggle to be active enough.
So down at the moment sad
