My family tells me to loose weight but makes fun of me when i try! -EDIT- -Edit 2- -Edit 3-
So basically I'm 20, 5'5" and 255 pounds, I have tried time and time again to loose weight and my family makes fun of me! When I don't do anything they tell me i'm fat and lazy and that I need to get out and walk and not eat so much. When I actually log my food and work out on my tredmil they tell me I'm secretly eating when they go to bed and that theres no point in logging. When I work out on the tredmil it makes noises because obviously I'm heavy and running on it, they laugh and say i sound like a fat cow .They'll come up to my room and try to push me off it! I'm so sick of it! I have brought it up soo many times and they say they are just joking but seriously? Once or twice okay haha funny but this is an every day thing. I got myself a personal trainer so at least I can work out away from them but like today I came home from seeing him today, today was my first offical day all we did was take my measurements and set up a calorie plan and what not. I went to grab something to eat because and my trainer told me to eat regularly until our next session so he can see what i'm eating and try to give me healthier options. They told me I was wasteing my money on him because I'll always be a fat cow. It just stresses me the hell out! I mean I was 160lbs when I was 16 which is over weight for my height but at least i was happy and they left me alone. I am at my wits end I really just don't know what to do anymore. I pretty much sit in my car and cry or stand in the shower and cry because its the only thing that seems to help at the time.
I just wanted to say thank you guys for all of your support! It's so nice I know I can vent on here and have the support. I actually had my first workout today with my trainer, and my mom was actually interested in what my trainer was having me do (which is a big first!). My one brother was even impressed that I could do a plank for 40 seconds for the first time being as heavy as I am. I'm sure I'll still get from them untill i'm smaller or maybe they will just keep doing it for the rest of my life. WHO KNOWS? I am trying to move out, I had been staying with my mom because she had her knee replaced (she's 38) and we lost my step dad almost 2 months ago so I had been there for support and to take care of the house hold. I am saving up for a deposit then moving out as soon as i can. I really don't want my son around that stuff, (he has autism) the last thing he needs is for them to start making fun of him when he's older just because he likes to flap at things. I hope things get easier once I do. I really hope so. Thanks again for the support guys!
Just wanted to let you all know that I have finished my first week of training, I went in to start my second. We did a weigh in and I lost 2 pounds! :D
I made this post a few months ago and it has resurfaced.. I just wanted to give you all an update. Its been about what.. 3 months since this post. The weightloss journey was a little rocky at first, my parents would come up with any excuse in the book to keep me from going but in the end I've gone almost every time. (Missed once because an appointment and twice because my trainer was out sick). I have lost a total of 18 pounds as of 8/19 I weigh in again tomorrow and I'm hoping 2 pounds down so I can be at 20 pounds in 3 months :D. I have gone from working out twice a week, to working out the twice a week then running a mile every sunday with my trainer. I've also started setting up a mini gym in my bedroom so that I can work out at home. I still have a long way to go but Its going really good. I have lost every week since I started and I have lost 19 inches off my total body.
Thanks for the support!!!
