Body issues :(

Hi everyone! I just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem to me, coz its really getting me down!!

I won't bore you all with lots of detail but basically I'm in 2 minds about my body shape and weight. I'm 5 foot 5 and have always been a bit bigger than normal, but a while ago went down to 9 stone after some vigorous dieting and exercise. Then after stopping I put it all back on, and now am 10 stone 4. Thing is at the moment I feel big but I like having a bigger bust and bum!! I'm just flabby and I don't know whether to accept myself as I am and stay this way, or start dieting again and get back down to that weight. Seems a silly problem, but its on my mind constantly :( Anyone got any advice? x

hi lauren.boring as it sounds when people lose weight they tend to put it back on eating and dieting has to b included in ur life forever ,we have to change our eating habits forever and keep exercising we can still treat ourselves now and again .

Hiya Ponty1964,

Thanks for your reply. It sounds weird but I know it's all common sense, ie eat less move more, but its so much harder than that, and my weight has yo-yoed up and down for years, I wish I was one of these naturally thin people!!! I just mean one side of my brain says "people love you for who you are, there are more impotant things to worry about" an the other side says "stop being lazy and get healthier coz u look a mess!!" its seriously taking over my life and I just want to know which voice is right :( xx

Hi Ponty1964,

I still live with my parents actually and they hate anything to do with healthy eating or exercise so its really hard, no-one wants to do this with me as theyre either happy with themselves or cant be bothered :( not allowed to do exercise in the house as too noisy,cant go out walking as we live in a rough area (and no-one will walk with me!) and gym is too far away and expensive :( xxx
