Hi I'm just turned 17 I'm from Ireland and I'm going through the stage where everything I think about is weight , in school I have a great group of friends but they are all 9 stone or 8 stone and sometimes weight will come up in topic at lunch time and they will say stuff like "oh god I don't think id ever be 14stone id be obese then" but I don't think they realise I am 14 and a half stone they would never hurt my feelings or anything but in my head my thoughts are eating away at me thinking "oh god I am obese" I am 5ft 8 I'm very broad but I don't want to deny I am very over weight .. I don't know why I have never seemed to be able to control my eating I'm sort of OCD with my skin,nails,homework,clothes,folders and cleaning my room and things like that but with eating I seem to convince myself that portion size doesn't matter if your hungry eat as much as you want but at night I think to my self oh my god I'm actually quite disgusting how much I eat like why do I feel sorry for myself or cry when I'm not loosing weight myself , last year I got quite depressed because I wasn't loosing weight an I know I'm doing it wrong because some weeks I'll eat healthy three meals a day small proportions but then on a weekend id be so tempted for a take away and is get it then after is think ugh no point in eating healthy now I've ruined my diet plan or id go through phases of just drinking smoothies for three days no carbs or sugar or salts but then when I do eat them my body craves them and id eat a lot more so basically i know I'm doing it wrong and I'm always reading books and stuff I joined a gym for 6 months I went every day I think I missed like three weekends in the whole 6 months I was a member and honestly I felt no different I love jogging in the evenings I live in the country side so jogging is more of a hobby than a task but eating is my main problem .. So basically tonight I decided why don't I blog maybe share my problems unknown with people who might of had the same problem as me because I find it very embarrassing talking to my mum,sister or friends about this because I have done it and when I don't loose weight I feel they think I'm useless so what do I do to shift weight has anyone any diet plans they feel work for them ??? I'm 5ft8 and 14stn 8pnds
