I have been very overweight for many years. it started when I hit my teens, lots of steroid due to chest infections, lack of exercise (i got bullied and beat up a lot, not that I didn't give as good as I got, so I stayed in at home and didn't go out very much unless it was with family or family friends) The weight it now very BAD. I was weighed in september last year at the local GP and I clocked in at a scary 25 stone. the heaviest I have ever been. It sucks to be honest. I have been like this for a long time, over weight that is. I pretty much don't expect to get rid of it, I honestly 100% believe it will never happen. that doesn't mean I haven't tried. I've gone out more now that I'm an adult. i try to eat right, I've dieted but it's had little impact. it's a 50/50 toss up to be honest between myself and what work's. well a few day's ago i went for a check up with the diabetic nurse and I asked her just for curiosity's sake if she could weigh me to see how much weight I'd put on this time. she said I'd lost 3 stone. I was happy at first but now........I don't think this will last and I'm pretty depressed about it. it's like dangling a carrot in front of you and then pulling it away. it's quite depressing to be honest. I think it's pretty much due to the metformin I'm guessing and cutting out allot of stuff from my diet. I dunno, am I the only person to feel like this?
