Hi there everyone!
I'm 18 years old. I weigh 97kgs and am 166cm tall and my goal weight is 65 - 69kgs which will get me into a healthy weight range. I have only just started realising that I am overweight and that I need to do something about it otherwise I could die. My uncle died when he was 30 because he was obese and I dont want to be like him, it's scaring me a lot.
I'm attempting the weight watchers points diet because I tried it before and I lost 20kgs (this was about 2 years ago). I can't do a lot of excercises because I have a severe case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and it prevents me from doing extreme exercises including running, jumping, weights, pulling or pushing. However I can walk, swim(I think, I havent done it since I've been diagnosed), and cycle(again, I think). I also have to cut out a lot of fruits and vegetables because of the fibre levels, seeds or acidity levels. It's also hard because I'm the youngest in the family and have no control over the food that is put into the household and what is cooked.
I'm having a lot of trouble getting motivated. My fiancee keeps saying that he loves me just the way I am and refuses to help keep me disciplined when it comes to food, but does attempt to get me active although I just cant get motivated enough to actually exercise. I feel fatigued and disgusting and don't want to go outside. I quit my job because I feel so ashamed of myself, and now I just stay up all night, sleep until late in the day, eat and watch TV.
I don't know what to do with myself. I need motivation and support, I know that much, and I'm hoping that will be enough for me to start me on the right track. Any tips or tricks or anecdotes would be awesomely helpful.
