I'm Jen. I'm 19 and I'm overweight.
In the last 3 years I've put on 20 kilograms and I now weigh in at 97 kg. I'm unhappy, and most of my extra weight is around my stomach, which I know is unhealthy. In high school I never had a boyfriend, and I was painfully shy. I was never 'asked out' and because of my appearance, what i considered ugly and fat, I never had the confidence to ask anyone I liked. I live with my sister, and we're both in uni and horrible influences on each other when it comes to eating healthy. It's always 'Monday we'll start dieting,' or 'tonight will be the last night we binge eat.'
I'm in university at the moment, and I find that my weight is causing me difficulties having the confidence to meet friends, which makes the experience lonely.
At the moment my shopping basket would probably contain 25% things that could create a healthy meal, and 75% crap food. It shames me to say that sometimes when my sister or I can't be bothered to cook, we'll eat a bag of chips or lollies instead of dinner.
I've tried different fad diets, like shakes and ridiculously low calorie diets, but not being able to eat real meals, (or even solid food on some of the shake diets!) seems to unhinge me, and even if I tell myself it wont happen, I always seem to binge on food!
I'm terrified I'm going to end up with diabetes, even though I'm only young, as members from both sides of my family have recently discovered they have diabetes.
I've come to this website because I need a better support network when it comes to weightloss then I have at home, and where better to go then with people who have already been through what I am, and what I will go through on this journey.
If anyone has any tips for me, as a beginner of losing weight the healthy ways, PLEASE let me know! At the moment, I'll take anything on board!
