Would meditation/LifeFlow help me?

    Hi all --

    I've been browsing here a few days, but can't really tell if this is the place for me. Here's my situation:

    I'm an obese, 50 yr old + woman with Type II diabetes. I know everything I SHOULD do, but I can't seem to do it.

    I have no problem with sitting still and "being;" my problem is getting off my butt and "doing" -- anything!! I have found nothing that makes me happier than sitting on the couch, stuffing my face with junk food, and sleeping. I'm afraid to try, but I really think I could park myself in bed Friday night and not get out again (other than for bathroom breaks) until Monday morning. I'd rather sleep than eat.

    Oddly, I don't think I'm depressed. I spent years being suicidally depressed and I don't feel that way now. There are many things I want to do, but I don't have any energy. This sloth-like condition has existed for about 5 years and nothing I do seems to move me out of it.

    Other than the diabetes, which is under so-so control, several physicians have found no physical problems. I know I need to lose weight, but the effort it takes doesn't seem to bring enough reward for me to want to continue the effort.

    I'm sure meditation and/or LifeFlow won't hurt, but does anyone have any reason to think it would actually help??
