I’ve been over weight since 2011 when I had my son. I’ve tried countless way to lose weight but I think it’s my mental. Food has always been a comfort for me. After I delivered I was 280, I’m so 260 now but that fluctuates. I get discouraged easy and it’s hard for me to say no when I’m in an emotional state. I recently lost my job and my eating habits are so bad. Not to mention I don’t usually exercise because I’m so self conscious even at home. My doctor suggested surgery but I’m terrified of going under and not waking up. I don’t know what to do!! My weight is the main cause for all my other medical issues and I just want to be health and not die early. I don’t know what will work and I don’t know how to fix it.

      I can’t recommend 2B mindset and 21 day fix enough because PORTION CONTROL and healthy eating. I binge eat. I stress eat. Diets and counting calories DOES NOT WORK. Being mindful and intuitive does. Intuitive eating is the way to go.

      Hi! I totally related to you! I never had kids, but my weight is around the 245/250. But I’ve also tried a lot of different ways to loose weight including Nutrisystem twice and Noom. I have spent YEARS being an emotional eating, and when I eat when I’m emotional it’s usually not nutritional food… I went through a pretty big medical thing, and I can’t eat gluten, a lot of dairy, onions, and acidic food. It’s cut out 95% of the not nutritional food I enjoy. That’s been huge for me. But I also used to not exercise at home because of being self conscious. I’m also not working currently. I went to a specialized weight loss and surgery clinic earlier this month and was put on Omeprazole for appetite control. I can’t do surgery because I was in the mental ward for being suicidal. But I’m also terrified of it. Ha I have a lot to say. But I do also want to become healthier and loosing weight will help a lot of my medical conditions. If you want to chat about certain strategies to help lose weight and staying motivated, my chat is open!

      There are a lot of medications that suppress your appetite and give you energy. I have been trying to lose weight. I actually switched jobs to a more active job (with a lot less stress) and I fast (which means I only eat during a specific time frame) I've lost about 13 pounds down to 272 from 285 :)

      My doctor put me on phentermine and it helps with the weight loss and I work out. I am afraid of surgery. I started at 255 I am now 224 that was three months ago.

      I'm at the same weight as well! And so is my roommate! He is opting for the surgery, but all the hardcore rules and liquid diet you have to follow afterwards or else you'll mess it all up is my last resort kind of deal. I'm going to fully try to exercise and eat better! But either way you choose to go you have to be ready to have some serious will power and be ready to commit, which is easier said than done! I personally joined weight watchers and talked to my doctor who even encouraged this! I would love to connect more with people like us just trying to navigate weight loss and get some emotional support really
