I am 32 years old, happily married and have no children. I have been in the military
for going on 14 years. I have always had a problem with my weight. I have been on the Overweight Program on and off my entire military career. This time it is different. My military career actually depends on my weight now. If I don't lose the weight I will lose my job! My job is 80% our income. I don't know what to do. I don't eat a lot or all the time but when I eat my meal is big and it is not healthy. I feel guilty after I eat which causes me to want to eat again. I end up feeling depressed and then just want not do anything. I am 5'6" and currently weigh 195lbs. The military does a body fat tape test and says I am 40% Body Fat. I cant believe I am at the point where my fatness could possibly cost me my job. I'm supposed to be a soldier, but how can I be if I'm a fatass? I hate being this way. I need help.
