I'm looking for some new pals to keep me company while I start a healthier living regime in order to lose weight. I'm 33 and I've been overweight for all of my adult life and am sick of being held back by it. I feel completely invisible most of the time, and the only time somebody notices me is when being rude or horrible. I feel too ashamed to ask my family for support and none of my friends really understand how I feel and why I haven't been able to lose weight sooner. I feel really alone and helpless a lot of the time, even more so since things ended with my ex. In the last year I have started suffering with anxiety and panic attacks because I feel like if I don't do something about this soon I might not be around to try and sort it out in the future. I need to lose about 8 stones, I am the heaviest I have ever been after a decade of going up and down a few stones in weight. I know this will be a long journey with many lifestyle changes and I'm hoping to meet people to get me more active and to have the confidence to socialise more. I also hope to give the same support to them too! I am based in south west london and would like to hear from people in a similar situation if anyone else feels the same?
I have a lot of weight to lose too and sometimes feel that's its all too much. I know what you mean about feeling invisible but I have started to learn that its me hiding away not other people ignoring me. I am trying to be who I want for once and not what I think people want me to be if that makes any sense! You will find loads of support and motivation here, you are not alone at all. Much love xx
