I can assure you, being thin is not all it's cracked up to be. My doctor's keep begging me too put my weight back on. But I'm not only feeling sick now, I'm actually vomiting. Mines no psycholgical problem, it is a health issue, but all of my old clothes just fall off me now and that is getting me hugely depressed. Even my old belts don't go tight enough, I've had to buy a load of new ones.
There's no shame in being overweight and you don't need to feel out of place. I bet if you start to get the depression side of things under control. Thigns will get better. I know when I'm depressed I start to comfort eat, usually this would make me pile on pounds.
One thing I will suggest is, rather than having a goal weight to celebrate. Celebrate each pound that drops off. Have a reward system, where maybe to celebrate each couple of pounds get something to pamper yourself, like a bath bomb or some new nail polish, perhaps as you loose the weight, spend a pound or a dollar on treats, for each lb you loose. Maybe when you loose 10lbs, treat your self to a new item of clothing.
Rather than concentrating on feeling bad and out of place, concentrate on how loose your clothes are getting, and how much you've acheived. Slap on a bit of makeup and face the world with a smile and your boundto recieve smiles in return, which will boostyour confidence even more.
Hope some of this helps,and doesn't sound patronising or anything. And hope you can turn that frown upside down. Everyone is worth something, no matter how they feel about
themselves. They just have to realise that.
It's true!: Smile and the whole world smiles with you. Frown and the world turns upside down.
