Sick of being overweight **edited **

I knew for a while I was gaining too much weight but didn't do anything about it and now I am stuck. I'm 5'2 and am at 153 right now so I need to lose about 35lbs. That's where the problem comes in because I have  gained much I'm having a lot of health problems so it makes it hard to exercise. When I try to be active my feet and legs swell up so bad I cant even walk for a few days. I also get really sensitive to touch even the gentlest touch on my body just hurts. I did change my diet and eat a very clean diet but that's not seeming to help at all.

This isn't something that happened over a long period of time, about 9 months ago I was around 135 not in great shape but felt good. I had to have my appendix taken out a have not been the same since. I was wearing a size 7 and now in a 13 i would guess since i wear only sweats now. I just cant stand it anymore, I feel like crap all the time and shouldn't feel like this at my age (28). Its embarrassing and I have shut everyone out because I don't want them seeingme like this and have lost many friends. I also had a photography business and was making decent money but just quit because I dont like people seeing me like this. I guess I feel like I dont know what to do now. Has anybody else been in my shoes and if so how did you change it if you did? 

 Thanks ladies, I have a lot to look at now. Its just hard to know what direction to go in when researching things on the internet. I have tried the atkins diet but love veggies so that was a big fail. I also tried 100% raw diet but dont get enough calories and eat high ammounts of carbs. Im defanitley going to try and the yoga at home. That might take some time since I have a hard time changing positions due to swelling. I do like to be active its just hard when the next two days I cant even get out of bed. Just kinda in a slump I guess that I really need to get out of before it gets worse.

Have you talked to your doctor about this? It sounds like there might be something else going on.

You don't have to be morbidly obese to be overweight. Sorry but 35lbs is quite a bit and shes right to br concerned. Obviously its less than 100lbs

I myself am overweight, and did not find this insulting.  You have no idea what overweight is!

I agree that you should see your doctor, it sounds like something is wrong.
