Fat, ugly and in need of a makeover

My name is Jarri. I am obese, ugly and in serious need of a full-on makeover. One big problem I have is that I am addicted to KFC and eat it 4-5 times a week. I go through the drive-thru and eat about 8-9 pieces of chicken on my way home from work. I get home and eat a big dinner at home after that. Every night I dig into a big tub of ice cream and can't stop. Exercise for me is sitting on my husband's peanut or going to the toilet. It sounds pathetic but that's my life.

Looking forward to your responses. I could use some sound advice.

Hi Jarri, welcome to the forum :welcome:

Hello Jarri. Welcome to the forum. I feel very sad at the way you describe yourself. I know what it is like to have an addiction to food. I have found help through an eating disorder clinic. It may be something you would like to try.

Welcome Jarri. It sounds like you know what the problem that you need to work on is. Have you tried laying off the junk food and transitioning to a healthy diet before? Have you been able to go for any length of time staying away from that chicken? Do you think having some support in these areas would be helpful to you or have you tried that already? I agree with bpd that you are struggling with a very real addiction and should not be so hard on yourself as they can be very difficult to manage. I’m glad you found us and decided to post here. xo, j
