My weight is bringing my mood down severely and making me feel worthless and fat and ugly, I'm about 17 1/2 stone in weight. I am going to ask the doctor if I can get a gastric band as I am not able to lose weight properly myself(that is how much it's bothering me). I know what you're thinking, that I am a fat lazy slob. I guess I am. I cannot stand to look into the mirror. I went to a diet club from january-march and lost 11lbs but it is so difficult to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can feel better in the mean time about my weight. I feel so ugly I cannot stand it. I feel like I don't wanna go outside I have 3 sisters, all skinny as rakes, its so embarrassing to be this size.
