Can't stop thinking about food/eating/weight/body image. Taking over my life :( watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    As the title says...my life revolves around weight and food. I feel constantly down and restrained. Every time I go shopping I get even more down because I don't want to buy anything looking the way I do at the moment - I feel it's like polishing a turd. I look so bad that it doesn't matter how nice the clothes I wear are.

    I have complete hate towards myself and my body, I feel disgusted all the time. I can't go a single minute without thinking about food and my weight. Yet nothing ever changes. I try so hard to lose weight through exercise and diet yet for four years now I've gained gained gained. I don't know how long I can go on like this. I feel as I'm going to snap.

    How can I have a more healthy attitude towards myself and my diet?

    I suggest seeing a therapist or councillor of some sort. It will help you improve your self-image and make you feel better

    First you should have a doctor assess whether you are actually over weight and if as you say you are still gaining weight inspite of a healthy lifestyle he could also assess the reasons and maybe order some tests.

    It's also a good idea to start seeing a therapist as already said in the above post
