I suffer with severe depression, anxiety and low self-esteem and lots of times when I am depressed I turn to eating for comfort. I find it helps relieve my pain and worries if I just eat takeaway food, over-eat or just generally pig out on unhealthy foods. Apparently, overeating can be categorized as self-harm and I wish to cope with my problems in a more effective and less damaging way. I hope to lose weight, eat more healthily and lead more healthy lifestyle but depression won't let me. I have joined the gym and going for my first session today hopefully. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to share with me? I can't be the only person with mental health conditions who over-eats or under-eats...
