Default I'm getting fatter and fatter

I;m real pretty and I use to be real hot.. then the anxiety and ocd came.. with that meds and depression so I kept eating a lot more and gained ten kilos, adn there just going up, and up.. I've realized that if I don't stop eating I will be as fat as hell... but can't! :@ cuz it's the only thing that keeps me going... I thought about using some diet cookies, that I really like.. so that's one and I use to exercise often, but I have no will and no time.. :( any advice...

I have the same problem. I weigh like 20 kg too much for my height according to BMI scale.
I heard this in a movie or series but it is completely spot on:
"I eat because I am unhappy and I am unhappy because I eat"

My tip would be cut out all sugar from your diet and eat less. Still eat on a daily
basis but eat less then you usually do.

Exercising is good to.

Eat less junk and exercise. Find something you like to do with a bit of variety to make it less boring. Don't worry about your weight or weighing yourself and instead look for changes as you exercise. You have to make time to exercise.

Chained maybe getting a routine that takes you outside of the house but doesnt put too much pressure on you to interact with others would help. Perhaps running, going to the gym, or some other athletic exercise?

Don't rely on the diet cookies or any diet food/drink. It likely will just leave you disappointed. Focus on eating meals, not just eating all throughout the day if that's what your trouble is. To lose weight you need to exercise annnnnd eat right in conjunction with each other. Aim for at least 30 minutes a day at first, it can be just walking! Then build up from there. Cardio such as that will slim you down. Depending on your height, weight and age you need to be eating a certain amount of calories. If you continue to go over that number, and aren't exercising enough, you'll gain weight, no doubt.

That being said, don't think of it as something severely strict. Once you get into the pattern of eating healthy meals and exercising even just a bit, you'll start losing weight and it'll be easier. I realize that it's not the easiest thing to do when you feel less than excellent day to day, but as you start eating healthier and exercising, that in turn will actually make you feel better emotionally. Good luck to you!

Wish gaining weight were easy for me. People take their appetites for granted.

I think you're just at that stage of depression or denying yourself.

It's really just about eating better, I'm sure you could look at what you eat and be like yeah okay no wonder why i was putting on weight. I use to not be able to put on weight.. i guess i took that for granted and ate whatever i felt like eating. Until like not that long ago i hoped on the scales and i was 7kilos heavier.. i was like :|. Considering i brought my bridesmaid dress at the start of the year which i need to fit into.. i kind of had a good goal to work towards.. otherwise honestly i wouldn't have done anything about it...

I use to wake up and eat chips, cause that was convenient, i'd drink over 2litres of coke a day.. cause it tastes good, for lunch i'd eat anything convenient again cause i was way too lazy to make anything, so it was like biscuits or sometimes i would make a sandwich..then i'd snack all day long, only good meal was dinner cause my mum makes it...

Now i drink icey cold water instead of the coke (icey cold burns more then room temperature) If i feel like snacking i'll eat like celery (burns more then you consume) sometimes with peanut butter on it. For lunch i have a really big salad with some form of protien in it. that was the biggest change and i love salad so it helps... and i felt alot better for eating it. Breakfast i still hate breakfast so i eat whatever (but like toast or cereal or eggs on toast or an omelette or something like that). I eat apples/oranges for morning tea. If i feel like dessert i kind of eat like tinned fruits.. sometimes with custard or yogurt i guess. and i drink green tea cause thats suppose to help. and a coffee in the morning (without sugar now)

I've done that for two weeks without exercising and i've lost 3kilos. So now i might start going for a walk and build that up slowly...

before changing what i ate i did try eating whatever and excersing, but that did nothing cause i still ate more then i burnt off.


(also i still eat cake if i want just a small piece and i don't go back for seconds lol, same with chips just a handful not the whole packet...)

Dont be hard on yourself fat women are really attractive in my opinion but if you really dont want to be fat then get some exercise and lots so you can still eat what you like.

Every time you eat junk, or eat a less than healthy meal,... eat it while you sit in front of the mirror and watch yourself eat.

Why? This will encourage feelings of shame and guilt. Look at the way you stuff yourself. And if you naturally value your appearance, it may put you off and it may motivate you to seek change for yourself,.... e.g. eat less (but enough), stop going for seconds, choose something more healthier so you do not need to feel shame or guilt.

You are allowed to eat junk,... the only condition is that you must eat it in front of the mirror.

Not every dream comes true, but life's surprises can be just as good.

I just lost 8 kg and want to lose around 10 kg more,I am not fat right now,but if I lose another 10kg I will be really ripped,what I did was I eat fish,chicken or egg with some vegetable all my meals,when snacking fruits,nuts,sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds and to not go crazy and give up,every saturday I go to mcdonalds and buy a double quarter pound with large fries,if you eat well the whole week,you can still eat this and lose weight and of course if you exercise it will be better.

Just be careful because at the age of 14 i decided to go on a diet and excercise but i got obsessed and i soon became anorexic. I only cut out chocolates and cakes to begin with but in the end i pretty much cut out food altogether and i excercised despite being on the verge of collapse. It's so easy to become obsessed. I still feel pretty guilty after eating too much even to this day despite being cured of anorexia after suffering for almost a year at 14.

Exactly...

I used to be anorexic and it's still a struggle to this day.

Eating disorders aren't to be taken lightly.
