S/C/G: 370/

Height: 5'5"

Cool Hi! I'm new

I am still learning how to use the site. I haven't figured how to put my picture up yet. I am super morbidly obese (370 lbs and 5'5".) I have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, diabetes, Vit B and D deficiencies and high triglycerides. I also have mental health issues including binge eating disorder and bipolar which effects my self care/ diet compliance. I am having mobility issues (can barely walk now). I need help and I admit it. I reached "rock bottom" when I could hardly walk to the bathroom anymore and when my psychiatrist lit a fire under me to finally do something. But I didn't know how or where to begin. I need help finding exercises I can physically do! I use myfitnesspal now to track my food but find after restricting calories through the day, I get weak and have an all out binge at night. I'm desperate to make it stop tho. Out of desparation I have decided to get some help from a counselor and nutritionist. I am looking for advice, friends, and online support. Would especially appreciate finding online support groups that meet via zoom or skype or discord (or similar). I am 51 and live in Illinois. I am a caregiver and have a large loving family that is the center of my world, but I still get lonely for friends. Nice to meet you all.
