Ht. 5'9", Start: 260 lb, Today: 310 lb, Goal: 200 lb - Eating and weight has always been a problem for me. Despite living with just my very athletic father, I've always been chubby since I was like 8. I don't know whats wrong with me, its like I can't control myself. I just eat and eat and eat, when I'm bored, when I'm hungry, when I'm not, when I'm sad, when I'm happy. All of it. I feel like a balloon. Quarantine has been bad, I had already been struggling with my weight but the ability to freely lay around and eat all day has blown me up 50 lbs. Worst of all my dad keeps teasing me, and lecturing me. He brings me in and puts me in the scale so he can chide me for putting on any more weight. He calls me names like blubberboy, Pillsbury, fatty, tubby, marshmallow boy etc. He's always been fit, so he has no sympathy for my weight. I feel helpless, all around me are people lecturing me about my size and eating, my dad, the doctor, my p.e. teacher. And yet my weight continues to balloon. When class was in person I started to struggle to fit in some desks. And I get out of breath just going up stairs. But my eating is out of control and I can't seem to stop
