I’m one of the few percentages of people who couldn’t lose weight due to “certain rare conditions”
I was obese my entire life despite playing team sports my entire time in school and eating the same as everyone else. Then in college I tried eating 1000 cals deficit and running everyday and I couldn’t lose weight.
Then I found out by an endo that I had an issue with my pituitary gland that made it functionally impossible to lose weight (his words).
He gave me an injectable medication that spoofs the function of how the hormones in my body are supposed to work and I lost 100 lbs in 8 months without counting calories and exercising less.
I never believed the tumblr logic of “they can’t help it; they eat healthy” before I had this experience and now I concede to that statement that I previously thought was BS.
It literally wasn’t my fault and people treated me poorly and stigmatized everything I did for something I couldn’t control. I was never lazy, I never had an eating disorder, and I wasn’t delusional about how much I ate.
I literally don’t even know what to think anymore after having my worldview completely shattered.
