Did your doctor ever check things like your thyroid or your metabolism? I think there are pills they can give you to speed up your matabolism.
I'll just tell you outright because I'm not ashamed of my weight that I am 5'11 or 6 feet tall and I weigh 300 at the moment.
I dont eat hardly at all. in fact, the only things I have eaten today was some leftover peas in the fridge, and now a bowl of Ramen. Sure it's not the BEST things I could be eating yeah, but I really dont eat that much at all yet I dont lose weight. I suspect I might have a thyroid problem because I have a very irregular period that hasnt sorted itself out yet, and on the internet I read it could be thyroid problems. Do you have a regular period? If not maybe that is the problem.
Sometimes when I just want to eat that means I am really bored. For me I like to sit down and read a good book where I will be absorbed in it and not think about anything else. Maybe you could buy some harnesses and leashes for your cats and take them outside. You dont necessarily have to walk, but sometimes just being outside can be helpful.
Othertimes when I have nothing to do an I am really board.. I just get something that I can chew on. For me this is usually celery. It doesnt taste all that good.. but I find I dont really mind the taste, I just want somethign to chew on. Also, drink lots more water. Its a bit easier for me because we cant really afford soda, so I usually just fill up a glass full o fwater and put a bit of instant tea in it.
You're probbaly like me and dont like to excercise at all, but expecially not when there is anyone in the house. One thing that I have heard works really well is pilates. Its usually not stressful at all. Heck, cant bring your leg up that high? You dont have to!
Are you married? Do you have kids? If so, tell yourself you need to plan meals more healthy for them, dont even think about yourself. Have one meat thing and two vegetables like peas and carrots.
The easiest way to avoid buying bad foods is to Have no Money! Buy lots and lots of things so you have only a bit of money left and zing! You wont be able to afford junk food. (ok so maybe that wont work... lol...)
the biggest thing you can do for yourself if you are overweight is to accept it and not care what others think about you. Really though this is one of the most difficult yet easy things you can do. I've gotten to the point where I really dont care what others think. I told myself I wont be going over the 300 mark and I wont. Sometimes you cant do much about being fat, it's inherited. My great grandmother and great grandfather were both skinny people, and yet all of their children are extremely fat! My grand mother is overweight, so are my two great aunts. I have one uncle who isnt fat, and he's bald!
You know what, you dotn have to feel so bad at all. 60% of americans are overweight!
I've really found that many people who try to lose weight dont do a very good job at all for one reason.. they dont accept the fact that yes, they are overweight, stop feeling sorry for themselves, and stop caring what others think. Once you stop caring about those things, you are at acceptance. When you are here, it is mudch easier to go at your own pace when losing weight. Many people even when you try to lose weight will tell you you arent doing enough, you are lazy, and such other stuff. The trick is to just ignore them, block them up, and ALWAYS KEEP UP YOUR SELF ESTEEM!!!! Sure right now it may be pretty low, but you still have it! Dont let it go any lower! If you learn to love yourself as you are, it makes it so much easier to control yourself and use your will to help you do what you need to do!
