Ok so a little about me, I'm 29 and I've had weight issues for a long time. As a child and in my teens I was overweight but nothing major, I lost 5 stone in 2003 and felt great! But the last three years have been tough, job loss, family death and money problems have caused me to over eat in a big way. I put on a lot of weight very quickly and in Janurary this year my weight was 21 stone and 1lb.
I had planned to lose weight as I do every day or week or news years day but I had been having a few health issues like I was tired all the time, was weeing a lot and had extremely dry eyes. And after a blood test and a visit to the docs I was told that I had type 2 diabetes.
I was so ashamed, I had done this to myself. I gave myself this diesese just by sitting on my butt eating anything and everything.
So from that day I have completly changed my eating habits and have lost 2 stone 3lbs. Which I am very happy about but I've started to struggle a bit now. I've been eating rubbish again for the last five days, not all day but I've had takeaways, chocolate, crisps and I feel it spiralling out of control again. I can't seem to remember that not only am I trying to lose weight I'm also trying to control my diabetes but it just hasn't stuck.
I just don't know what to do, its so hard doing it on my own and I have 7 and a half stone to lose! It feels impossible.
I'm sorry to vent my frustration to you, but I just wanted to talk to people who have similer issues to me!
