    Hi,

    I'm 24 and 18.9 stones. I've never been slim and feeling so low at the mo. To the outside world I'm successful but to me I'm a loser. No self discipline and use food as my only friend who I can rely on to make me feel good, if it goes then what do I have left??

    I can never forget my grandad calling me fat and ugly God alone only knows how that hurt and makes me cry just writing it.
    The annoying thing is I carry the weight well and get regular comments on 'how good I look' which is fine as I do make a big effort to look half decent but want to be happy with my weight.

    My goal is 15 st for now but how when there is no motivation. I'm gonna look back on life and regret wasting these precious yrs but it's so painfull as my eating helps with emotions as there's no one else.

    Can't have another summer indoors or rapped up in clothes. What to do????? Anyone have a lazer beam to take fat away or mend a broken heart :)

    Gonna try and just eat the healthy foods I love and have found a new passion in green smoothies using spinach and mangoes so maybe there's a start.

    Thanks for reading. Xx

    Hugs Hun!! I know how you feel and at 24 I weighed more than you! Still do!! But not
    Going to let myself get to 30 and still be fat!

    You need to stay positive and get your head in the right frame of mind for losing until then it is not going to happen, ad when you are reaching for food ask yourself am I hungry? If not try and work through those emotions. It is not
    Going to be easy but hard work is the only way! I wish I has done it at 24 and not wasted the last 4 years so just go for it!!!! You can always pm me for support and we can work through those emotions together xx

    Know how you feel. I aint as big as you ( I'm 23yrs old and 15st 4) but i ain't ever been slim and feel low all the time ( not helped by having work related stress that stemmed to depression 14 months ago)
    I have no discipline either if I want to eat I will either that or starve myself depends how depressed I feel that day.

    I have been bullied throught my life and feel when I am out any where I am being judged by people and I'm not keen on eating in front of others.
