Reaching Rock Bottom
A person hell-bent on self-destruction is not ready. You can self-disqualify yourself before you begin.
It's said of alcoholics and other addicted people that there is no recovery until the individual hits rock bottom. That's not strictly true. Understand what is happening. Want to do something about it. Then take action to stop the downward spiral.
If weight issues are your problem, the low-carbohydrate high-fat diet, is your key to success. However, it's probably going to be a big change. It might take a year or so. You need to begin by getting your thinking right. KNOWLEDGE is the key to success.
Denial of Need and Self Blaming
People blame themselves, what they want more than anything else is to become again part of the mainstream. If weight is your problem, it's knowledge that you lack, it's not a problem of willpower.
I recommend that you join with like-minded others in a self-help group.
You can't buy membership. You may pay the membership fee, but to be a member you need to be recognised as a peer by others. Most often the real cost of membership is measured by what you do with your time as a group member.
