    Well, other than the obvious reasons, being obese and not being able to wear nice clothes etc etc

    I'm studying counselling at Uni, and I've done a few other courses over the years including a stint in rehab for my eating disorder and complex PTSD....

    Somewhere in all of this the American psychotherapist Yalom was mentioned and I finally bought a couple of his books one being 'Love's Executioner' and in that there is one of his stories about a 250lb woman who was one of his patients. It's a very confronting story and I recommend it if you fancy reading that kind of stuff.

    As hard as it was to read it was enough to spur me on and say 'duck it' I'm going to flipping well do something about this.

    And here I am.:D
