    Considering the OP's name, do you all think this post simply meant to generate some hot talk?

    Talk to your doctor. The doctor can refer you to a professional and/or program that can help you get the weight off and keep it off.

    thank you all very much for caring about me so much to post
    i honestly am failing to understand how i will develop hair loss/systems shutting down when i have so much weight to lose. surely the body will burn through that first? there is plenty there to burn
    i will eat a bit more today but my brain is screaming at me. it’s like one of you said earlier, if it’s not fast then i csnt see the point. every time i have tried to lose weight healthily it goes bad in my brain, it turns into if you eat more than 1000 you’re going to get fatter, if you don’t stop eating you’ll get fatter. i can’t see any progress in my body so it works in my brain to back it up if that makes sense

    At over 200 pounds you're not going to gain weight eating more than 1000 calories. You burn more than that just living (at your stats just living, breathing, etc, without moving you will be burning around 1500 calories).

    You then have the calories you burn from Non Exercise Activity, which even at sedentary is around another 400 calories per day.

    Then anything burned from exercise.

    To burn 1lb of fat per week on average requires a deficit of just 500 calories, so that would be for you an intake of approximately 1400 calories minimum + anything burned through exercise to lose approximately 50lbs in a year.

    Your body can only burn a certain amount of fat before using other things as fuel.

    You can still eat chocolate and pizza as part of a balanced diet, just not in the portions and frequency you might be accustomed to.

    Trying to eat some unhealthy and unsustainable number of cals leads to falling off the wagon and binging (see your cravings for pizza and chocolate) or just blowing it one day and then giving up for a while only to start over again with even less confidence.

    Doing it in a healthy and sustainable way -- i.e., eating an adequate number of cals and not being hungry -- is going to get you to goal faster, in reality.
