Thread: New and Almost hopeless :(

  1. Default New and Almost hopeless :(

    Sorry for the sad topic....hello i'm Lily and i'm 22 years old. I have been struggling with weight as far back as i can remember. Quick background...i was a very overweight child until i was finally diagnosed with having an underactive thyroid and the treatment of that helped me shed weight...when i was 18 i was 5"4' and 122 lbs...completely happy with myself....then i developed a horrible binge eating problem...dontknow why....im not depressed...nothing...now im 22 and at 142lbs...i know its not a HUGE jump but i dont like myself at this weight...i would love to be 127-130. Its sad because im such a level headed person, but i have tried to starve myself and it never worked of course and i know how dumb that is...i tried diet pills...tried skipping meals....over exercising...everything...and i just gain weight....so my brother was on weight watchers for a month and he was aroun 350lbs and he has lost 15-20 lbs so far...and he tells me how easy it is so i just ordered a kit off of ebay....ill keep everyone posted...i am a very open and honest person so i would love to find some buddies on here i start tomorrow!

    Hi! I too have a thyroid problem and you will find many many many of us have them on here. I think you've found a good place to find a happy medium with food. Have you been to the T20's board? There's a thing on there called Binge Busters- many are struggling with binging issues there.

    Be very careful about starving yourself. Not only is it unhealthy but it slows your metabolism, and with a thyroid problem your metabolism is already a very difficult thing to control. Good Luck and if you need a buddy- PM me or come to the t-20's and you'll find help, inspiration etc over there!
