Conquered my bad eating habits but another issue has me baffled

I just wanted to get other people's opinion. I was quite a bit depressed and feeling bad about how much weight I had gained from when I was in my 20's. I tried a lot of diets and stuff and found a couple that worked for a short time. I would always return to my bad eating habits and would become depressed about the results. I really have turned it around for a few years now. I sometimes break down and eat the wrong food and too much but I have a warning weight and when I reach it I go back to my diet and lose it quickly. My problem is that even though I think I look my best now and feel very healthy, I sometimes feel very sad with no real reason. I get over it within a few days but it takes a lot out of me. Has anyone else had this experience and if you found a way to fix it please respond. I am very pleased at how much weight I lost and really feel good about my appearance and health. I just don't know why I feel sad. Maybe I should have posted this elsewhere but my earlier depression had to do with my weight and I thought maybe others here could relate.

When you put your appearance on the forefront this is what happens. One desire is met..no it's still not enough. Need to meet second physical desire. Okay met! Third fourth fifth sixth..omg I'll never be enough. You won't win.
