Hello
I am not sure what your medical question is.
There are weight loss specialists, internists, and endocrinololgists that can help, depending on the problem.
Psychologists can help with self image.
A weight control center would address all of this.
Please let me know what your exact question is.

What can I do to loose weight?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
First, see an internal medicine doctor.
Make sure your hormonal function is OK.
Thyroid function tests are very important.
Next, if there are psychological problems, get a PhD clinical psychologist to help.
Follow a Mediterranean diet, or a diet modified from there.
Exercise daily.
Do resistance weight training once or twice a week.
This is the standard approach.
As I said above, a weight loss center will provide all of this.
