I can't stop gaining weight...

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm a 17 year old female and I've been struggling with my weight since i was a child. I've always been chubby and bigger than other girls but i was also the first one to start puberty out of my classmates. When i was around 13/14 I've hit 75kg at a height of 165cm (5ft 5) and I was extremely fat. I've lost 20kg in 3 months and I've began to look anorexic, my hips were poking out and you could count my ribs. After a month or two i slowly started to gain weight back on and after hitting 65kg at the age of 15, I now weight 72kg. I am still the same height and although i don't look as fat as back when i was 14 at the same height. Based on my heigh I'm 7kg overweight.

Now the thing is that i did exercise I used to run everyday and bike but exercise didn't show any effects so I've lost that weight purley by starving myslef. I've tried exercising again but in 2 months i haven't lost a gram nor look slimmer. I've given up and I honestly don't know what to do because i know even if i lost weight the yo-yo effect would come back and i would end up gaining twice what i lost. I hate exercise and i don't have much time to do it anyway. I leave the house 8am and come back 6pm and I'm usually tired and just want to relax. I gain weight super easily so even if i eat the same amount everyday i still somehow mange to gain weight.

My family is pressuring me saying I'm overweight and I should stop eating and loose weight. I've never been able to accept the way i look and i have no motivation anymore. What can i do to loose weight once and for all?

I'm 165cm tall, 72kg, 89cm bust 67cm waist and 97cm hips, (I have very big legs and quite small torso)
