Eating Disorders Expert
It is difficult for me to say definitively to what extent you have psychological problems associated with your relationship with food, but you certainly appear to have been battling with yourself for many years. Even though your weight is of concern, you are doing yourself a great disservice by being so self-critical and engaging in so many battles with yourself (jaw-wiring, etc.). I suggest that you cease all attempts to loose weight through quick methods and return to the tried and tested methods of consulting with a registered dietician and engage in a regular exercise programme. With your weight, I would encourage you to seek the advice of a biokineticist if you live in a larger area. You would also benefit from entering into therapy, preferably individual, but group if you can only afford that. Perhaps you could email me and I can give you some recommendations to someone close to you or a group in your area. You should try to not focus too much on reaching a particular weight, but rather try to instill a healthy lifestyle and see what your body is capable of achieving.
