I feel like poo

Postby seraph » Wed Aug 01, 2007 4:59 am

So I decided that I really need help. I'm trying to do it alone and I just can't and I feel like nobody around me understands what an absolute struggle it is. I really hope this place helps. I'm at my wits end. I'm so sick of feeling like crap about the way I look and I can't seem to maintain a diet long enough to reach my goal. Help!

Hello Seraph and welcome to the group.

To stick with anything takes a great deal of determination and focus and that is what you need here. It sure is a struggle, even now I have to control what I am doing as it would be so easy to eat whatever I like but I know it will catch up with me and I will be back where I started. Whatever you put in place try to make it something you can do for life. I have learned to enjoy the exercise I do and the food I eat, yes I still have treats but not everyday so now a choccy bar really is a treat rather than part of my staple diet. It’s difficult but worth it.

All the best on your weightloss journey.

Hi Seraph,
losing weight IS hard. Hopefully you can get the support and understanding you need to succeed from this forum!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Seraph - we are all in the same boat, whether it's five kilos or fifty you've got to lose. So you should feel right at home here :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Thanks all of you. KimE, I was looking at your goals and weightloss you've achieved. I have a similar amount to lose. About 20 kilos. I don't know if anyone else ever feels like they're trapped in a cycle of dieting and over eating and guilt and elation. It's like daily life. I think I'm going to start a progress thingy. I think it also doesn't help that I live with my brother and work with men... all the time... engineers (no social skills) so they don't understand. I say 'i feel like poo coz I'm so fat' and they say 'so get thin'. Why are men so Stooopid?
