In my teens, I was the skinny friend with the great figure. I could wear anything I wanted and looked fabulous. I had great self esteem & confidence. Fast forward 20 years and I am fat, my daughter is embarassed on me & I hate shopping. I cry in the dressing rooms whenever I have to buy new clothes because nothing fits and what does, doesn’t look nice.
I’ve tried to lose weight time & time again. I’ve spent thousands on weight watchers meetings, diet shakes, healthy frozen meals but I’ve not lost the weight.
My GP has done tests and they can’t find anything medically wrong that I can’t lose weight other than medication I take for depression/anxiety.
I prefer to stay home all the time, because I feel that everyone is looking at how fat I am all the time. I avoid grocery shopping because I think people are looking in my trolley to see what junk food I’m buying.
It’s sad, what I’ve become because no matter what I try, I just can’t seem to lose the weight
