All I'm saying is that if you don't have a long term goal, like "I want to spend my life hiking around the wilderness or surfing or something, rather than doing whatever the fuck it was that got me into this predicament in the first place", you're likely to experience short term results.

Every once in a while, you say things that aren't total gobshite.

Just throwing this out there - getting more exercise will burn more calories and make you hungrier.  Having surgery to prevent you from taking in too much food might make you feel too tired to exercise.

I think committing to drinking a large glass of water before every meal will help prevent any over eating without starving yourself in the process.

Also, muscle burns calories *all the time* so if you focus on building more muscle, I think you will see results more soonly.

I don't even play a doctor on TV, but I think I make sense.

Good luck.
That is one of those pieces of advice that are easy to try, have no negative side effects and might actually work. Well done rong.

Best advice I have:

Set your sights on someone you want to be. Not what you look like, you can't be the same person you are and look different because it's who you are and how you live that determines your physical condition more than anything else. Maybe you want to be a football player or a mountaineer or a skateboarder or a cyclist or whatever. The mind and body are interlinked in a lot of respects. You can change one without changing the other but it's not generally sustainable.

Bad news - you want to be a thin, athletic person with killer abs who lounges about the sofa all day watching teevee and eating cheetos? Not going to happen.

Hitting the gym, changing your eating habits, playing ingress... these are all good things and will help short term. All I'm saying is that if you don't have a long term goal, like "I want to spend my life hiking around the wilderness or surfing or something, rather than doing whatever the fuck it was that got me into this predicament in the first place", you're likely to experience short term results.
Well, i've given it some thought, and mainly i just wanna be happy with the life i've lived. I want to have interesting shit happen while i'm here, and made something at least approaching a difference when i've gone, and I don't necessarily see how being over weight is a barrier to that, though obviously there's long term health issues to consider. But I love food, i hate running, but i'm not opposed to getting up and doing more cool shit, so long as i feel like doing it. I like my martial arts training, and i've been wanting to get involved in SCA or something similarly nerdy and violent. I think more than anything getting away from my parents place and into a place where i can pursue my own shit my own way will be better for me than all the peer pressure in the world.

I like the way you think.
Keep being you.
(Also, the combination of nerdy and violent is nifty!)

I think these are worthy goals.

My sister texted me again today. She thinks I should take the diet course at Kaiser. Its the course you take before they refer you to bariatric surgery but she's saying things like theres no obligation to through with the surgery, i can be supported by other people who are overweight, its a nice way to not be alone. But i feel like if i do it, she just gonna keep on putting pressure after i finish it. I told her maybe i'd consider it (probably wont) and I just feel like she's just putting all her body drama on me. She's had at least two surgeries like that before, she's still not at her goal weight, and despite having a loving husband and an adoring stepchild i don't think she likes her body. While i know she loves me and is worried for my health long term, i can't help but feel like she needs me to do this more than i do. i feel like now that we don't live in the same house anymore, she just comes around makes judgments about the way my parents and I live and then leaves. Its sucks to have to think of her like this because i can remember when we used to be so close and it was the two of us against our parents. Whenever the two of them would explode at each other, we would hop in her car drive around and vent about all the stupid shit that bugged us about them. Now it seems like i never see her except in the presence of our parents of her husband and stepson and there's always a discussion of some aspect of What I'm Doing With my Life. I'm twenty four, i have a degree, two jobs, and only 5500ish dollars in student debt. I'm living with my folks, but who my age isn't? i feel like i've got quite a few things going for me and i'd like to not be constantly reminded of all the shit that not perfect in my life. It feels like my whole family is set up to motivate by pointing out flaws and i don't wanna live like that anymore.

I think you mentioned before that you're working on moving out. It seems like that might be really healthy for you.

Dude, you are doing pretty damn good.

If you can afford to move out it I think it would be good for you, as it is for everyone around your age. If you can't: You are still doing pretty damn good. Better than me at that age. (or now at age 31, to be honest.)
I've got no degree, one job (I've got enough to pay basics (including my ridiculously expensive house) + repaying my student loan, but not a lot of room for luxury/saving. Also, never going to be able to buy a house) and a lot more than you in student debt. You sir, rock.
