ive had weight issues for years. over the last five years i went to slimming world. i found it very hard but i was told i was size 24 and would need to have weight loss surgery which i did not want to have. it took nearly 5 years and was really hard esp as i take tablets which the dr told me would not help with weight loss and were well known for making weight gain. when the class stopped i was not able to go to a class nearby and gradually i started eating cakes bread cheese etc i was a size 16 to start with. i recently started running a charity shop on my own but there is a lovely bakery over the road so id often have couple cream cakes i know its all my own fault. yesterday i bought some clothes from a boot sale and i have had to have size 20 and one of those dont fit. i feel fat unhappy and hate the way i am but im terrible. the other day i had a couple handfuls of fruit and fibre for breakfast a banana for lunch and 2 small baked potatoes baked beans and cheese for tea. i did this for several days then today i have just ate half a sponge as my skirt feels so tight stupid i know. i have issues over food for years i dont eat meat and tend to have one meal i eat lots of times then change to something else i dont like meals as such and dont like mixed up food. in the past i have also made my self vomit after food. i thought i was doing ok some of my tablets have been reduced due to the shop and my partner my anti depressants cut down i just want to not be hungry and enjoy food but not be this size back to a 16 or dream size 14 would be fab can anyone help please

Have you heard of myfitnesspal? Calorie counting app. Just log what food you eat. Tells you how many calories you can have per day.

I definitely recommend my fitness pal app. I’m using it again to get myself back on track and I’ve lost two pounds in five days.
It really helps you realise too that the calories in a small portion of calorific food is a large portion of more healthier foods which are more filling.
I really like the nutrient part of the app too and when I hit my protein goal a green message tells me so and the app is free.

DH suggested pizza tonight but it was a firm no from me because I knew I’d go over my calorie limit.

I went from a size 22 (18st 7) to a size 10 (11st 2) by doing Weight watchers. I started at the meetings and then once I’d got in to the swing of things I did it online. The app is great and you can just scan barcodes and use the meal planners to work out your points, it’s really easy to use! I totally understand where you’re coming from though, it’s a struggle but so, so worth it when you get there and feel comfortable in your own skin. Try giving yourself small, manageable goals...rather than looking at is as “I’ve got X amount to lose” Do u have anyone that could be a weight loss buddy? Good luck 💐
