I agree with everyone you do need to get checked out with a Doctor, I was in your shoes a few months ago and realized the same feelings. I was able to go to the Doctor and found out my thyroid was not working and that I have type 2 diabetes. I about wanting to cry and stay in bed. I was at 397 pounds and scared. I got all my medications set up and I have been watching everything I eat. I watch the sugars and carbs. I started trying to be more active in my daily routine, until I felt comfortable to venture out. I cut out the sodas and really watch what I eat. If I can't track it I don't eat it. I have had to deal with my emotional eating and face my comfort foods. I still have days that I battle that. (a lot of them.) The change won't happen over night but the weight didn't come on over night either. Always reach out for support and have a back up plan. And if you need to yell at the top of your lungs and feel free to message me.. You can do this.

It could be your thyroid. I have the same problem. I sleep at night when my kids go to sleep, then again for a few hrs with my husband after he gets home. I always feel like I don't get enough sleep. But... it really does help to start getting active, even if its jus 10min intervals to start. You have to push yourself... I know I do. This week has been a trying week for me and I haven't gotten hardly any exercise in, and I can feel it. Just remember you can do it. and talk to a doctor if nothing changes especially if you've lowered calories and work out.

First of all have you seen a doctor had your blood checked for anything going on or thyroid imbalances and hormones? Do you take a multi-mineral/vitamin to help keep your nutrition balanced do actually sleep well when sleeping or do you toss and turn or get interrupted in your sleep patterns? I have a C- pap machine so it helps me sleep hey if you can only do 5 minutes or less whatever it is before you get tired just remember every minute it's better than none at all build yourself slowly like break it up in few times a day like go outside with the kids chase them around the yard once or twice during the day count that as an extra few minutes walking with them in the yard looking for rocks leaves or hidden toys kind of like Easter year round and toys are playing hide and seeking from the kids don't know how old your children are but it's kind of little trickery too I do squats while doing dishes type of thing multi task like do jumping jacks if you can or jumping rope circles by moving arms step feet to the the side as beginning don't have to jump fully right off anything helps right now eat fruit and veggies I get tons of complaints on that and my water in take

Hello everyone. I'm new here and in need of some serious help. I'm 33 and have about 100-150 pounds to lose. I won't go into my whole story now I'll just go straight to where I'm at now.

I'm at the point that I seem to be gaining weight even though I'm doing nothing different. Carrying all this extra weight has me so physically tired that I can hardly function. I wake up exhausted like I haven't slept at all. During the day I will be sitting in the living room with one of my children playing and just doze off. Doesn't matter if I've slept all night or not, I'm exhausted. I'm also emotionally drained from the toll this weight is taking on every single area of my life.

Each and everyday I tell myself that I am going to change and at the very least do some sort of exercise. And each day I wake up and can barely drag myself around to do the things I need to do. Every so often when I do get myself on the treadmill or exercise bike my body just plain out hurts.

I guess what I'm wanting is to hear from someone who has been in my shoes, to hear how they've turned it around. I tell myself if I stick with the exercise I'll get stronger and have more energy. Then I look at myself and the disgusting shape my body is in and I feel like the 15 or 20 minutes I can barely handle might as well be a drop in an ocean when it comes to all I need to fix.

So can anyone tell me how to turn this around? I just can't make myself believe that if I commit to say, walking 15 minutes every other day, that it will make any difference. I feel like I should be doing so much more if I ever truly want to transform my body. I won't even get into my eating issues lol. Thanks for your time everyone can't wait to hear your stories and tips!
