I have joined this forum looking for a sense of community. A lot of people have judged me for my appearance and how I feel about it, and I would like to know people who will not do those things.
Allow me to take some time to tell my story, i'll try to keep it brief:
I have been overweight my entire life, I was always the chubby girl. I didn't have that many friends in school and I was bullied a lot, especially about my weight. As I got older, I put on pound after pound until I found myself at 191lbs. I was struck with shock when I found out that my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. When that happened, I realized that it could happen to my if I did not change my ways. So I began losing weight. It went well at first, but I have hit a bit of a plateau. I have not been able to go below 155lbs for about 6 months now, and it has been knocking on the back of my head.
I live at home while going to university, and all of the people I live with are morbidly obese and they do not care about their bodies or health. I am regularly surrounded by unhealthy food and often find myself going on binges. I want to lose weight, by healthy, and actually like my body for the first time in my life.
tl;dr: I live in a house that is a bad environment for weight lose and because of my plateauing weight, I am simply looking for a place that understands me better and does not thing I am selfish for waiting to lose weight.
I am more than happy to have conversations with anyone who needs a friend, or even just someone to listen to their struggles. I do not judge anyone, no one deserves to be treated badly...
Anyways, can anyone relate to my situation? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! <3
