I've been a diabetic since I first started high school. Before I was even ten years old, I had spent my summer with my grandmother and went back home overweight. And ever since then, its so hard to get rid of the weight. I don't have the motivation. I've lost 15-20 pounds since last september. But my diet still isn't the best. My parents and grandmother don't allow me to eat the foods I love anymore. Not even hummus. But the way I have been eating hasn't made me gain any weight. I do want to lose weight, I just don't like going to the gym. I love being outside. Now my family have made me feel so overwhelmed with everything. I have to have 45 carbs per meal. And 15 carbs per snack. My dad shows me pictures that scare me. And scaring me hasn't gotten me motivated whatsoever. When I get overwhelmed, I feel stressed and I just eat more and drown out the world with music. I don't know what to do. I'm only 20 years old. I am getting more active. I babysit and I walk a lot.
