So I have been advised to complete a diary to help me only weight loss journey.
I'm Kelly, 24 from Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
I work in insurance in a job I enjoy.
I've struggled with my weight and body images for about 14 years. At the moment I'm in a very determined place as my weight has started to have a huge effect on my life especially my healthy. I've always been active but recently this has dropped and I've noticed I'm out of breath so easily.
I've tried every diet possible from
Slimming clubs such as Weight Watchers and Slimming world, to fad diets, meal replacement products of which Juice Plus made me very Ill.
I always do well for a little while then fail within weeks.
Maybe the thing I haven't said it's the most important, I have an eating disorder or I'm a food addict which ever way you would like to put it. I've been a binge eater for years now and it's only recently I've realised it's a compulsion I struggle to control. It was always considered I was an emotive eater as I've had some emotional trauma throughout my life, but this is something I feel is incorrect. I am currently waiting for an appointment with the eating disorder clinic.
After my most recent visit to the doctor, I started taking Orlistat last Monday and I'm using this along with My Fitness Pal app which I am having some success with at the moment. The dr advised me not to weigh myself as it may lead to psychological actions based on the result but I know I've lost approx 10lb this week.
I welcome comments, advise, and questions!
I hope you will follow and help me on this journey, because I don't want to be 25 and 25 st!
