I realised in my last post I didn’t really talk about symptoms. So I’ll do so now.

I feel fat, uncomfortable and unwell. My body isn’t doing what I want it to do. I get puffed by short walks and stairs aren’t good for me right now. I worry about where this will all lead if I don’t solve my problem.

My clothes don’t fit. Nothing fits well. My jeans are so tight that they hurt, but I have nothing bigger. I can’t wear most of my jackets and tops.

My skin and hair are in poor condition. I don’t know if this has anything to do with being overweight, but my skin and hair are dry and flaky. I feel unwell and look it too.

I can’t stop eating. I can’t control myself around food. I’m stuffing myself at work on communal food, and bingeing at home.

I’m eating too fast, and not enjoying my food at all. It’s like I’m trying to fill a hole that won’t fill. Nothing seems to satisfy me.

I can’t do exercise. I used to be fit. At the moment I find two flights of stairs difficult.

I feel stressed. My nail biting is shocking. I don’t know how to stop that either.

That a few of the symptoms I have. It’s not everything, but it’s a start.
