I feel so fucking fed up...I'm the size of a house at 19 stone. I have bipolar so the medication I am on has resulted in me putting on a huge amount of weight. I literally hate my body and I hate how my hips hurt when I walk. at the same time I love food and I know I use it as comfort. I feel covered in this flab and me is screaming to get out.
I've been mentally stable for a long time the only thing that makes me unhappy is my weight and I just don't know how to get out of it. Been referred to weight management now too.
Is there anyone else who feels like me? Xx
Didn’t want to leave this unanswered but wanted to let you know that I know how difficult it is to lose weight and that’s without having the added difficulties of medication.
At the start of 2019, I weighed nearly 22st and am now just over 16 and a half stone. Still a long way to go though.
It really is a mindset and if you have got to the point that you really want to change you can do it. For me it was a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes that has really pushed me to lose weight for good. It has to be a lifestyle change that you can stick to so for me I have reduced my carb intake, made sure I do 10,000 steps most days and drink at least 2l a day. I try not to snack and I weigh most things other than veg. I also eat at least 2 squares of dark chocolate a day and don’t feel deprived. This may not work for you but I find eating less carbs has stopped my binging and cravings.
Grasp the help you are given and find a lifestyle change that isn’t too complicated to stick to and remember that it took a while to get to 19st and it will take a while to go back to a healthy weight
