Can someone help me, literally, in losing some weight?

Please do not make jokes about my question—It is a serious one. I usually work 50 to 60 hours a week, and I don’t get up very much from my computer. I weigh 320 pounds, I am 5’8″ and I feel I am backed into a corner, that I have to do something soon, if I don’t want to die from a heart attack. Maybe I am the one putting myself there. I have Diabetes, caused by PCOS, and I really need to lose weight. Trouble is, food addiction is a big thing for me. I am serious about losing weight, concerned about the consistency and endurance it will take. I prefer to talk to someone who has “been there”. And, please, the people who are fit and reading this, don’t judge me. You can only know what it feels like to be in this position if you were in it one day yourself. If you write anything nasty or rude, or judgmental, it will be reported.
If there is someone who would like to IM me, and HELP me, please do. I would appreciate it greatly…Advice welcome, anyone welcome to answer my question here.
I don’t have IM, but you can email me.
note to gy650
Unless you have been where I have been, don’t tell me I am not serious. Don’t judge me period. It has been a constant struggle for me. Yes, I am the one who put myself in this position, like many others have. We each have our own burdens to bear. I KNOW I have to lose weight, so get off your high horse, and stop the judgments.

    send me an email in my profile and I’ll contact you with a “friend” She was severly overwieght 300lb I think, with Diabetes and food addiction as well. in about 6 months she lost everything, down to about 140 I’d suppose.

    her blood sugar is the best its ever been. I’m very proud of her. but remember, YOU have to want to break the addiction

    I’ll do my best to put you in contact with her

    stay in touch.

    I think you need psychiatric help. Perhaps hypnotherapy might be the answer to your problem.

    weight increase relates to calories imbalace, i mean more calories intake than calories expends.

    Try eating foods less in calories. Cut on high calorie intake.

    Go for a walk.

    Climb stairs wherever possible, instead of elevators.

    Excercise a little.

    Hi. Been there, still working on it! I weighed over 400 pounds and have lost almost 200. Here’s what I did and it sounds ‘too easy’. 1). DO NOT EAT within 3 hours of going to bed. Period. No snacks, no ‘rewards’….I was big into having a ‘little sandwich’ (is that like a little pregnant?) 2). Going out to eat. NEVER finish what you order. I make myself (yep, MAKE) take home part, usually 1/2 of whatever it is. 3) Drink plenty of water, but don’t go crazy. Find out what your doctor thinks is the right amount for you. The only exercise I did was walking, heavy exercise at your (our!) size is not good…too much stress. But, grab a shopping cart, and go to WallyMart, or somewhere and WALK. Or, if you can, do it outside. YOU CAN DO IT. I couldn’t do (excuse me) chose NOT to do the Overeaters Anon. or another group. My doctor and I did it, without pills, surgery, etc. You CAN too. But, you’re going to have to decide to. The food addiction in my case translated to boredom. So, I get hungry, and I do something else. I also love ice water. So, that’s my ‘big treat.’ I didn’t cut ONE THING out of my ‘diet’… I still have the ice cream, french fry etc, but ONLY RARELY. Like once a week. Eat better things and you’ll feel better. While broccoli is good for you, maybe you hate it. Find spice, herbs, and other things instead of going for the cheese sauce. Especially with your diabetes, you have to manage your food. Remember, the ‘rewards’ that you’re giving yourself are …well… killing you. Don’t do it. It will be hard, but, if you truly want to, you can succeed. I have, and am still losing. It’s a constant thing, but so’s going to work, doing housework, etc. Just part of life…and that’s a lot better than the other option. Good luck!

    Hi. I would be happy to chat with you. Since you are ‘only’ working 50 – 60 hours a week you have plenty of time to fit in some exercise. At your weight I think walking is probably best. Start slow and build your tolerance to exercise. Even 5 minutes at a time will get you moving in the right direction. It is not how fast you move that counts, but how much work it is. Lots of helpful info out there. I have known many people who lost incredible amounts of weight by doing something as simple as walking 2 or 3 times a day for 15 minutes at a time. Myself, I am losing weight right now (was 252 and 5′ 10″ when I started) I stopped drinking pop and started walking with Heavy Hands. I am down 11 pounds so far and feeling better already. Best of luck.
