View Full Version : Weight is my demon

May 30th, 2016, 07:31 PM
Im 17, I was skinny all my life until I turned 15. Insecurities and a lack of confidence made me want to eat in my bed alone all day. I gained about 50 lbs, now overweight and more insecure then Ive ever been... I workout everyday, but I cant control my eating. I feel a need to always have food on me. When Im done eating I get massive guilt and feel hopeless. Last week I was done feeling hopeless, I made myself throw up and I felt good for once. Ive lost 5 pounds since then and Im doing good. Is this bad?

Why do you feel a need to have food with you always like that?

Doing that to yourself is very unhealthy. Try going to the doctor that will help you with diet and health. Having smaller portions, lowfat foods, less calories will help but its all in your mind. Having self control will help. Remember that eating so much is the cause of your weight gain and your insecurities.

Doing this is very unhealthy. Slipping into an eating disorder won't solve your problems. you have to figure out why you have this constant urge to eat. this is maybe only possible with professional help but please don't risk your health in order to lose weight.

Well don't keep eating and then throwing up. You will develop bulimia that way and you don't want that. Just try eat right and regular meals and be determined to not snack or eat constantly. Keep up the working out and exercise. I wish you loads of luck. Don't give up man.
