Depression and overeating

I've taken the first step this morning to putting a stop to my overeating. I've been on anti depressants since November and my eating has gone off the chart because of how I've been feeling. I lost 3 & 1/2 stone last year and after stepping on the scales for the first time this morning I've put back on 3 stone. Needless to say all I want to do right now is stuff myself silly but no more. I've got 3 beautiful boys and an amazing husband so it's time now for me to stop wallowing and sort myself out 😃

  • Hi you've got the right attitude when i was depressed it was hard to even get where you are you sound determined, and at least you've still got 7lbs of your loss so that's a start😁if that even sounds right lol i meant at least you still have 7 lb of your loss that you didn't put back on 😁onwards and downwards 

  • Ok- Very hard to get out of a rut (been there) but YOU can 👍👍👍👍👍

    Go for a walk,talk to others,we are here, try not to worry about what you are eating, get your head right first, baby steps, and start to recover.........

    Then, buck your ideas only live once 😜👍 

  • Hi Stel1905, thanks for posting. I've been in a very similar situation to you recently. Depression can be very complex-despite having amazing loved ones around and little apparent reason to feel down etc, you can still feel down. Don't be too hard on yourself-give yourself time to heal mentally first. Good luck :)

  • I've started my new life today. Been fed up and depressed for so many years and my weight has gone up and down. Time for a new life and a new me. Good luck to you and focus on what is good in your life . Good luck to me and I'm off out soon to join the gym and have along walk
