Bit of an awkward one - I have about 2 stone I want to lose - my diet is now pretty healthy, I enjoy exercise and I love running (although my back says otherwise) I have to wear two sports bras and the pain and discomfort I get during and after have meant me putting a stop on it. However, that has impeded on my weight loss. I have dropped a dress size (14/16) but the scales are still saying the same weight as I was being a size 18/20. I have lots of other issues that my bra size brings and have seen the drs who said they will see what the procedure is now to have a reduction on the nhs as obviously there are cuts. To be honest I don't want to take from the pot but I'm currently job hunting after being made redundant and after 10 years of battling/putting up with it/losing weight (I have lost 3 stone already) I just can't take it anymore. running is ideal as it's free, however now I've taken a hiatus due to the back pain, I'm missing out on the massive benefits it gave me in comparison to other forms of exercise (I like walking but it's not as high impact/cardio) and the back pain is reduced to it's normal annoyance I've come to live with. The dr has implied that I need to lose a bit more weight if I want to be considered but I'm stuck in this situation - and to be honest since I've stopped running I've started finding myself getting really down, bad tempered, not wanting to go out, crying all the time and over nothing. I just want to be healthy and fit and go out with my friends and not feel judged (they're all tiny and have had kids which just makes me feel even worse being the fat single friend). Anyone got any help, or advice as I have a feeling that I'm not going to get much help from the GP.
