I think your first option would be to find a different doctor, if the one you're using isn't able to help you or refer you to appropriate help.
What sorts of weight-reduction diets have you tried? Perhaps another healthy type would suit your lifestyle better. How well are you able to follow those plans that you've tried? If you can't follow it, NO weightloss effort can succeed. You need to find something that will tailor to your needs and willingness to comply with - ALL the time, no cheats, no treat days, just adopt a new lifestyle and that's that.
You may see from my ticker I've lost a lot of weight. It's going very slowly now, but it's still going! And that's okay. It's a plan I can live with, and it's not a race. I will get there when I get there. I already feel very much healthier.
You can do it too. You just need to find the right perspective and the right tools. The Nutrition Tracker here is a wonderful one. Get very friendly with it!
Best luck to you.
You can do it.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
