Hi all thought I would tell you about my weight problems. With the fibro I put on a fair amount especially after going onto pregablin,then I lost my mum and my eating went haywire. Last year I joined slimmi ng world and to my surprise I lost three an a half stone. Trouble was I actually became pretty depressed on that diet. Everyone thought I would be over the moon at loosing so much weight buti wasn't. I think I was disappointed as it hadn't cured me. For some reason I thought I would get my life back once I lost weight but I didn't. Yes it was nice to see a new slimline me but my self esteem was still very low. I was quite worried soo finished with slimming world and began to see a nutritionist who explained the low fat diet probably wasn't helping the chemicals in my brain causing a depression. She tried a full fat diet but eating healthily but the weight flew back on she was also trying new supplements on me and then my ibs went haywire. I was so freaked out by it all(and also the cost of seeing her) I stopped seeing her. Now I feel I'm back in no mans land. I've started reading a book about overeating and food addiction which I'm pretty sure I have. It has very good reviews on amazon by people who also have this problem. It's very easy to get addicted to food usually the sugar causes it. I don't drink or smoke so I'm getting a boost from sugar. I want to try and get a hold on this before I get fat again.
