When I have self harm thoughts, I turn to food for comfort. Does anyone else do this? I'm sure I'm not the only one??

I'm supposed to be on a weight loss journey, I have lost almost a stone ever since January but I feel depressed over things and get anxiety or panic attacks then I just fail myself by eating more 😭

yes I do struggle with this Jamraspberry , I have reached out to OA and got myself a sponsor
to keep in touch about what I'm eating
so that I'm reporting at the end of the day what I had
I think its helping, I'm eating more healthy things

if I feel I need to splurge on food I try to splurge on healthy food
like having a banana instead of a chocolate bar , that kind of thing

I'm still having some chocolate after lunch
but then not doing that several times a day
