Being Overweight

Being overweight sucks. I don't particularly feel disgusted with myself being overweight. I don't feel like I'm a piece of shit being overweight and I never realized some people feel that way about overweight people until fairly recently in the scheme of things. I hate it because it makes life harder for myself and I worry about dying at an early age or getting really really bad side effects.

 

What does annoy me about myself is that I am wanting to lose weight, but I have done nothing but gain it over the last few years. It makes me so angry with myself that I don't have the self discipline to lose it. I wish it was just an on/off switch - yes, I'd like to turn motivation on and leave it on permanently thank you.

 

I have a lot of weight to lose to be in a somewhat health range (> 30 pounds) and I really do want to lose it, but on the other hand I evidently have not lost it. I really don't know what to do to force my stupid brain to make me fight to lose the weight for a healthier life. It's nothing that any outside forced can really help me do unfortunately, I just need to figure out how to make me comply.

How do you view food? Do you turn to food for comfort or our of boredom or some other reason? Often, our food choices stem from things that have nothing to do with food. So maybe keep a journal of your feelings as they relate to food, and you may start to see a pattern form of when and why you turn to food. It's not a matter of will power, which can often be what people will say about over weight people. I enjoy exercise and eat healthy, if you ever want help with anything, please feel free to pm me and I will try to help. Hang in there! You can do it.

I've battled weight issues for the last seven or eight years now. For me, there is a lot of satisfaction treating my taste buds to something just delicious. And then there is depression, where I am not motivated but want to do something, so I eat. LOL

 

Little steps make a lot of difference. Just change one thing a week. Even if it isn't exercise, but more water, or less creamer in a coffee, etc.

I know exactly how you feel. I finally made the jump and decided that I needed to do something about it. Zomberina is right. Its all about doing little things. Losing more than 30 pounds is a daunting task. You think there is a lot of effort and self control involved, and there is, but you can manage it. For me, it took a smartphone app called myfitnesspal. I certainly don't eat what I would call healthy, but I learned to limit my calories. Track it in the app and after a couple weeks, it will become a habit. Another important thing is that you give yourself a break and have a cheat day. I'm not saying go on a binge and engorge yourself, but if you decide that having a steak with all the trimmings and fries and a salad and a pop are something you want for one meal on occasion, then go for it. No need to guilt yourself. Its all about small changes. And you don't have to make them all at the same time. Its worked for me. I have lost 38 lbs in 4 months. I am only 12 lbs from my goal weight. I feel better, I look better, I have more energy. I am confident you can do it. I did. Good Luck!
