Hi, it seems that you have a lot on your plate and probably feel like no time to do it in as well. Wanting to lose weight, cease smoking (?) , simplifying/reducing your medication (?), dealing with BPD and PTSD, being a good mum, a good spouse, a good worker, sounds like no time for you at all. I would suggest you might need to speak to someone about how you can best juggle all those things without becoming as burdened by them. A good place to start might be http://www.ckbamhss.com.au/ which is a community run organisation close to your home. (I have no affiliation with them I just googled them). They may be able to offer some peer support, ie from people who have similar concerns which can be helpful, and they also provide counselling which may help to manage the more day to day concerns you have. They are also probably a good place to gain access to local groups that can help with “change of lifestyle” CONCERNS.
Additionally, I would also suggest psychological intervention. If you go to the APS http://www.psychology.org.au/FindaPsychologist and go through them to find a local psychologist. They should be able to help you to reduce your PTSD and to better manage your BPD. For one smoking has been shown to exacerbate both those diagnoses. I'm also guessing that you are on an antipsychotic which tends to lead to substantial weight gain, and it can be very difficult to reduce that without great support.
I hope that this information is of some use
I wish you well
