Hi waterlilies. Thanks for your question. I am so sorry your GP was so insensitive. Weight loss is very difficult and requires lifestyle changes, not just short term dieting. It is concerning that most of your excess weight is on your stomach as this has been shown to increase your risk of heart disease.
First of all, congratulations on losing the weight in the past! You know you can do it again, but this time when you reach your goal you will have to keep a close eye on your eating and exercise habits. It is important to look at what happened when you reached you goal on a program in the past. What kind of eating/exercise habits did you have after the program?
I have a few questions for you:
How much weight did you lose on the programs in the past?
What is your height and your goal weight?
Are you interested in using one of the programs that you have been successful using in the past to lose weight, or would you rather try to do it on your own?
What did you like or dislike about these programs?
I will be happy to help you!
