I had heard about it a lot and now I found out i have it. I kind of knew the way I was not able to take care of myself and with all the stress at home + work and fights and way our eating was. On weekends, I would be so stressed in my home, I would go away out of house in fury and stay 2-3 hrs hungry at lunch time and then crashing and eating lot of halloween candies in my purse then cookies then later in the evening come home to eat junk like pasta .. I feel so bad now that i am putting myself and my child at risk. I know it is normal in many women these days but i am so overweight that i can not walk and my back is like bent already. We do not eat rice everyday but yes it has become convenient food easy to cook and then left over all the time, many days i have eaten 3 times rice. Doc told me to stop it completely. Its hard for me to home cook everyday with house hold chores, cleaning and office and body pains so we have been eating out a lot..l ike a lot. My H is not very very supportive or caring honestly. I do not do any excerise at all. I have active toddler + 8 hrs of job + breakfast + some other chores, they all tire me a lot and hurt my back enough to not to worry about weight or cooking healthy. Doc is recommending me to dietician for strict diet but i worry they will put me on salads and chicken. Not really good on salads in cold weather and hardly i find time to cook simple meals, forget about making multiple things, salad for myself, regular meals for kid etc. Combination foods or just salads/healthy foods do not work with my family. I do not know what to do? Any suggestions.. I am very worried.
