So 5 years ago I lost 9st in weight, unfortunately its left me with a massive amount of excess skin.. I thought once I had lost my weight my confidence would return, I would be able to go enjoy all the things I missed out on being fat such as swimming for example.. Well this weekend was a test for me. Me and the girlfriend had been invited to centre parks with some of her friends, we've just been swimming.. I've been dreading this for months.. I even went out and bought a pair of swimming shorts, well.. I got in the changing going rooms and panicked. I'm sat now back at the lodge everyone else is swimming and I feel awful.
I can't gety head around it. The weights gone but the mental side is a mess.
I know I need help.. Mentally as well as physical. The doctor told me a few years ago they couldn't do the skin surgery on the NHS and I don't have the money for it to be done privately. Anyone else had this problem?
