    Just starting out again

    Hi. I don't know if this will work but I have come to realize that I can't do this without support. I have none at home. I am single and 35 and feel completely alone with this struggle. The people in my life don't understand why I just can't lose the weight. I am the only overweight person in my whole extended family. My friends that are overweight do not support any weight loss program I start and I know it's because they too are struggling with their own issues. I just need some support. I have tried every diet out there and I know it comes down to portion control and exercise. I need to lose over a hundred pounds. I lost 80 three years ago and then I got into some emotionally hard times and I again turned to food. I plan on getting a treadmill in February with tax return an walk when it's nice outside again. Today it is snowing with 5-6 inches planned. Yuck. I have begun to take multivitamins because I know I don't get what I need from food. I am not a picky eater. I like 90% of fruits and veggies. I am just lazy about cooking for just myself. I used to love to cook but now it's just me and feels like a chore. But I know I need to. I hav replaced my daily soda drinks with water. I do not like to eat breakfast, never have, but I know it's important to keep metabolism going so I drink a high protein low carb slim fast shake. I am not doing the slim fast plan it is just to get my breakfast in. I have all the knowledge to lose the weight but I still haven't done it. Every time I start then fail I feel more and more hopeless but I am not giving up. I want more out of my life then to constantly be starting and stopping diets. I don't want food to run my life anymore. I know everything I do is a choice so why do I keep making wrong choices? Why can't I be enough to support myself and just do it like everyone says?

    Jenkat, I've just posted an extremely similar post. I'm 35, single, and also the only person in my family with a weight problem. I've just joined here today.
    Its so good to know that i'm not the only one, not that I would want anyone to feel the way i do.

    Hi Jenkat, you'll find so much support here We're all in the same position, and some people will have gone through similar circumstances. What diets have you tried before? I do Slimming World and I find the group support incredibly helpful and the "diet" itself is more like healthy eating and nothing is restricted. ): The beginning is the hardest part, but you'll get there You are supporting yourself by coming on here and getting inspiration and help and you will "do it" and prove them all wrong! Do it for yourself, and your health - not for ignorant people! x

    Thanks everyone for the support. It really is nice to know I am not alone. I have dug myself out of another four inches of snow and started yet another day. I admit I went crazy over the weekend with food and ate my emotions. I am sick of winter and tired of being stuck inside. Today it will get to 30 below zero and no end in sight. What can I do to stop the binge eating?

    Thanks for letting me know I am not alone. I hate being the fat one in the family. No one can relate to my struggle and they all give their unwanted opinions on what I should do. It drive me crazy and makes me feel worse.

    You should make loads of healthy fat free snacks... spicey chicken legs (without skin) or just keep eating jacket potatoes.. i do SW and you can eat as much as you want whenever just cook it without fat

    Welcome Jenkat!
    I too am the fat one in the family
    Been here on Minimins and SW since 1st January and I'm finding both really good. Lots of support and great info on here and the SW lifestyle is suiting me so far.

    Best of luck x
