It's been a while, gained 60 lbs

  • Its been a long time since I've been here and in that time I've gained 60 pounds. I've been suffering with a lot of depression having been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and a lot of other things that have happened to me since I've been here that I've used food for comfort, but I'm tired of my weight so I'm ready to try it for a third time.

    They say the third time is the charm right? Well I hope so

    My biggest obstacle is that I want to lose weight but because I feel hopeless, I eat, so what do you do when you feel like "what's the point" and you just don't feel like losing weight. I'm just exhausted.
  • I came back on here again today because I feel hugely frustrated with my current health. I don't feel like I am good shape at all. Since the last timd I posted here I have probably gained 30 lbs. It's really bothersome. I feel frustrated like you, so remember you are not alone.

    In your situation, I believe a lot of it goes back to managing the issues one by one. The health issues are there and have to be dealt with individually and so does the weight. I think it's a matter of tackling it one by one. If food is being used for comfort are there other things that can be done? Maybe lower calorie treats, or drinking tea or using a warm blanket for flare-ups of pain. Just some suggestions.
