Our expert says:
Feling uncomfortable in the company of others can be related to such factors as social anxiety disorder, and also poor body image and low self-esteem and self-confidence.
Maybe you should start by seeing a good local psychologist for a proper assessment to help you clarify what the problems are and what would be the best way to remedy them. CBT style counselling can be useful for this.
If weight loss is part of what is needed, then one should, for instance, see a good dietician and make a proper plan for a diet and exercise program that is realistic for you. Almost all of the diet aid products sold are useless, anyway, and as you point out, when they remain in the pack, none could work anyway. Those products make tempting promises to make it all easy, when it cannot be so.
And such counselling can help you to repair your body image - as you wisely realized, with a poor body image you will FEEL ugly whatever you wear, and with a proper body image and enjoyment of yourself, you can look great in almost anything.
The counsellor, especially within a CBT model, would help you to make realistic plans AND STICK TO THEM, rather than unrealistic plans, bound to fail and leave you feeling worse.
And as Nonni says, working within one of the dietician-recommended ( as there are ineffective versions also heavily marketed ) dieting programs, with supervision, encouragement and working with others, can also be helpful.
I suspect robitrek is a gimmick, not a realistic aid to weight loss. Nothing that makes it sound easy and quick can be geuine, but getting weight off and keeping it off, is possible
