Ht. 5'6", Start: 286 lb, Today: 286 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - Hey everyone. I don't know what to do anymore. I am not motivated but I want to be. I used to be active, but I was much younger. Im extremly over weight and I was just diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. This is to much. I have a eating problem and go to food when im sad or bored or stressed. Im so lost and dont know what to do. Any advice?

Yes, I have been to the doctor many times and we have talked about everything. Im very well aware im obese. I feel as if im getting worse and worse with no one to talk to. I dont know why or the core reason why I eat so much. I cannto figure it out anymore. I really dont know what to do. I have professional help anywhere I go but nothing is working. Its getting to serious. My life is threatened. I wish someone would tell me what they did that has the same situation.

Hi you are obese! I am the same height as you and if i ever got that big i would be scared. So talk to your doctor and come up with a weightloss plan that works for you. :)

I also eat when I'm bored..alot. I know how hard it is.My advice is exercise. It has really helped me alot. If you feel like you are bored and going for food, try finding something that turns your attention away from food
