Weight Loss. Loosing Battle, Running Out of Ideas

I am hoping someone can help by either directing me to the right physician or tell me what helped them or helped others.

It really hurts when people in public comment on my weight but have no idea what I do to try loosing the weight but it isn’t coming off and just gets worse. I am in a battle and feel no mater how hard I try I am loosing. Please help.

It isn’t just physical it hurts me emotionally - Yesterday I mentioned I dressed up as Char for a party and someone said how could you she was skinny. The day before a friend called to tell me what to set me up with someone since they liked bigger women. People sometimes don’t invite me to do sports since they think I must not do any because of my size. Today after exercising a lot last week eating healthy I can not fit in my size 14 pants. I am the most athletic out of all my friends but am the heaviest. Sometimes I exercise at home for hours, or go to the gym in the middle of the night when it isn’t crowded, don’t go on dates, avoid social actives in big groups because I am to embarrassed how much I gained. And hurt people treat me like I am not trying to loose the weight. I can’t tell you the amount of men who have nicly turned me down saying you are awesome but if you were any skinnier,

All my life I was skinny until my early 20s when overnight I started gaining five pounds a week no matter how hard I tried to keep the weight down. I was diagnosed with PCOS. Immediate I kicked into not eating crabs and keeping sugar low. But weight keeps on coming and I have super difficulty loosing it. Sometimes I loose 8 pounds but it comes back. Again Please help.
