Great to have found a support forum for this most difficult of tasks, losing weight.
Anyone who thinks it's just about willpower has to be joking.
I've earned high marks in 3 degrees, recovered from severe depression, and have overcome a great deal of shyness....
But I am still fat.
I haven't been my ideal weight since I was 12-13. Since then I've been piling it on, and failing to lose it, despite all my attempts at dieting.
My family members are also dieting, but are obsessive and dysfunctional about it - not to mention, ineffective.
And I will never find a man to love me, being this fat.
I am 29, and sick of being alone.
All the books that say you don't need to be thin to find love are lying. The world just isn't like that.
Hopefully I can find motivation and support here, so that I can get thin and find someone adorable.
