i totally get your beef. i was 250 lbs a few years ago and got the scary prognosis from my doctor that i would be a diabetic if i kept my lifestyle up. after i cried, he suggested that all i really need to do is cut back on what i ate (for example, instead of eating multiple servings of ice cream, try one or two) and to just be busier (i hate exercise, but i got active with some student clubs at my school...which prevented the afternoon binges).
i lived with the all-or-nothing motto for awhile. some days i'd be perfect, other days i'd totally fail. it was the hardest to find balance, but i just didn't understand that a 7.5/10 most days was better than a 10/10 day followed by a 5/10 day...do you know what i mean?
it's still hard, and i'm still not perfect, but the weight loss has come, slowly, but surely, and i lost about 50 pounds of fat within a year. when i got some iota of confidence, i began going out for walks in my neighbourhood (god forbid i showed my face at the gym!) and got stronger.
it's important to have support of family and friends, and it's really important to trust them with who they are today. don't worry that your boyfriend will leave you for someone else, and if he does, then you two don't deserve each other. you sound like an amazing person and you, like everyone else, deserve the best.

all the best girl!
