I have always been overweight. I've never lacked confidence, or felt too bad about it. I've always been, "I am who I am". Until now.
I'm 32, a size 28 female, and I have a partner who has just managed to turn his whole life around from a drug addiction to now losing weight. He loves me dearly, and hasn't put any pressure on me to change, but I want what he's got.
We both work really hard and are good people. From him getting his drugs help, it made me realise I have exactly the same problem but with food.
I am sitting here crying as I type as I am so scared of feeling too hungry, and the withdrawal symptoms it's awful.
I don't know what to do, but I need to lose weight as I am just getting worse.
Is there anyone out there that can relate to how I feel and what did you do?
People telling me I am lazy and need to eat less and exercise more won't work. I need specific help in overcoming my addictions. Currently what gives me that dopamine buzz are carbs and sweet things. I can potentially cut down easily on the sweet stuff, but the carbs are a huge issue.
Any help and advice greatly appreciated.
Thank you xxx
