Any ideas about not being able to lose weight

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. There's something wrong with me where if I try to lose weight and intentionally drop calories I tend to GAIN weight. Sometimes rapidly.

I am very scared to try and diet because it seems I will try to diet do REALLY good never cheat and I tend to stay the same or gain. Then when I get discouraged for doing so well and gaining (I only mean a few lbs) I say forget it and i'll eat normal (which to be normal is STILL very healthy compared to most and watch what I eat) I will GAIN MORE because it's as if I reset my metabolism and slowed it down. it's VERY scary and discouraging. Also how can you explain this. Whenever I go on a cruise which has all you can eat buffet, I say SCREW this, I am going to eat whatever I want, i'm on vacation. So I will eat anything and as much as I want (not  binge eating but eating till im stuffed and desserts every day and I will a lot of the time LOSE WEIGHT, sometimes it's only about 2 lbs BUT once I lost a whole 4 lbs. Another example. When I went  to Europe recently I aid I am in Europe im going to eat whatever I want i'm in another coutry. I ate all bad foods...fattening...desserts from all diff countries sometimes desserts even in the morning like custard things or a croissant wtf all stuff I wouldn't dare eat at home. And I came home for the first time in my life losing 12 LBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't understand what is going on with my body. I know diabetes runs in my family, everyones obese on my moms side. I want to lose weight but the diets don't work and when I work out or join a gym even working out INTENSELY along with diet with a personal trainer that was very expensive, I gained RAPIDLY they said it was muscle but I did it to LOSE weight. I am 200 lbs! This week, since I feel completely exhausted all the time everyday I thought maybe I might have a problem with gluten since my dna showed I had a gene for celiacs. SO I said maybe i'll try gluten free this week. I don't mean buying a bunch of high sugar gluten free items I just mean cutting out pasta bread etc...So I cut out pasta bread and all gluten...….I ended up getting low blood sugar one day so bad ( I sometimes get low blood sugar but not high blood sugar. ANYWAY....I strictly did NO pasta, NO bread (which I often can overeat on like instead of one serving i'll have 2 or eat till full) ANYWAY so I did really good this week I think. And I really thought MAYBE I might lose some weight because I havn't been having many carbs. What happened? my weight SKY ROCKETED!!!!!! I gained about 5 lbs in 4 days.....I could CRY I just don't know what to do anymore.

PLease give me any ideas, I do know that on my dna test it did say I had a lot of obesity and diabetes genes is this why?

EVERYONE I know who diets seems to lose weight and lose fast. Even my mom who is about 320lbs 5 feet tall, if she diets she will rapidly lose. it's KILLING me I need to lose!

please don't reply if you say I didn't work out hard enough or if I cheat, because during times of dieting I would never ever cheat and I worked out very very hard with personal trainer for a LONG time till I just couldn't bear the continuous weight gain.
