I'm on week 7 of the NHS plan now and I keep gaining/losing the same few pounds over and over. I struggle to stick the calorie limits because of emotional issues surrounding food. I rarely get my 5 a day and haven't once managed the 150 minute exercise per week. I have a very hard time altering habits due to an anxiety disorder (change is hard). I really can't stand the feeling of being hungry and so I overeat to avoid that feeling.
I'm really starting to lack motivation. I need to lose weight desperately (currently morbidly obese) but I find it very difficult to stick to things (I eat way too much junk food currently but don't want to cut it out all together if possible - I'm awkwardly attached to it).
I see so many posts on here saying I'm on week 5 and lost 8 - 10 pounds or however much and I want to feel happy for them but I'm just so angry and frustrated that I haven't been able to do the same. I feel like I've really let myself down (have been trying and failing to lose weight for over ten years) and I was really hoping this plan would help me to finally change how I was eating.
I am massively a creature of habit and I feel like I need more of a structure / consistent eating habits so that I already know what I need to eat. I can plan out a week of healthy meals for a week perfectly well but then I feel so restricted (by not being able to eat whatever I want) that it never lasts long.
Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. I just don't know what to do anymore.
