I need to change the way i eat but im notexactly sure how to start. I know i have to cut out sugars and starches because those are my biggest crutch. Im an emotional eater and always seem to find food to ease my stress level. I was already obese when the doctors put me on some very aggressive bipolar meds. In two years time i went from 300 close to 500 pounds. I took myself off the bipolar meds so im not constantly hungry anymore but at my current weight there isn't much i can do in the way of exercise. Even walking is now a problem. I get the shakes a then dizzy. My body frame simply cant support this much weight. My family doctor gave me a prescription for some diet pills that should give me some energy to get off the couch and start some kind of exercises. Update: thanks to allcdnboy not quite as lost now but still have an unfathomable distance to go.
